We all know the feeling of going back to work on a Monday morning, following a relaxing weekend with your friends and family. We tend to cling on to our beds a little more on the first few days of the weeks, than the last, as the thought of going back to work is, to say the least, daunting. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that your Monday should be mundane and dragging, as you can start the week off right with clear priorities set for the remainder of the week. This is why Mondays are important, as it’s the first weekday in which you set the tone for how the rest of the week is going to go.
In this post, I’m going to be talking about the best foods to takeaway on a Monday, particularly if you’re feeling a bit under the weather and want something to kick start your week in the right way:
The infamous dish originated in Naples has been the backbone of Italian cuisine for centuries, with worldwide recognition that has sparked innovative flavours by in various cultures. It’s safe to say that pizza is the ultimate comfort food – you can have it any time, any day. So if you’re feeling the effects of Monday Blues rubbing off on you (even just a bit), perhaps a traditional Italian pizza would suffice?
We Brits love a quality, juicy burger. How can we resist it, really? There’s something about a burger and the fact that it’s extremely well complemented by fries and a fizzy drink (or even a Strawberry milkshake) that makes this combo such a hit throughout the world. If you want to properly treat yourself, why not add some fiery chicken wings to your order? Bet it’ll leave your taste buds spiced up for a fresh Tuesday morning (perhaps no more morning grogginess?).
3. Chinese Takeaway
Yes, yes and YES.
No one can turn down a Chinese takeaway – it’s merely impossible. With so much to choose from, this cuisine makes it simple for people to choose their favourite foods, catering to all dietary needs. What do you feel like having tonight? Spicy food? Sorted. Special House Fried Rice? Right on. Chicken stir fry? Say no more.
Whatever it is that you’re craving, AllEat contains an endless list of Chinese takeaways that caters to all types of Chinese food imaginable. We got you.
4. Indian Takeaway
Another big ‘Yes’ on our list – Indian food is one that’s going to shock your taste buds…culturally speaking.
With such a rich and diverse history behind Indian cuisine, one can find an array of dishes with roots based in different localities in India, from Lamb Pathia (originated in Gujarat) to the classic Brits’ favourite Chicken Tikka Masala. From the infusion of various and indistinguishable herbs and spices, unique to India’s own heritage, finding a suitable dish to spice up your Monday night will take longer than 10 minutes if you’re browsing through the entire list (so get ready to narrow it down).
5. Thai Takeaway
Thai cuisine is one that is so broad in taste and variety, that choosing a dish will prove difficult. Choosing a Thai dish will often require you to go back-and-forth to your browser to check whether the image of a dish is aligned with your expectations of the food. But it is definitely worth it, though. From Pad Thai (Thai style fried noodles) to Pad Krapow Moo Saap (Fried Basil and Pork), our Thai restaurants at AllEat have got you covered with a rich selection of menus for you to browse from, be it soup, rice or noodles.
If you want some inspiration to get you started, I’d recommend Tom Yum Goong (Spicy Shrimp Soup), Som Tum (Spicy Green Papaya Salad), Green Chicken Curry (Gaeng Keow Wan Kai), and Red Curry (Gaeng Daeng) with smooth hints of coconut undertones as the main showstopper of the dish.
6. Fish and Chips
The Classic battered Cod fish that is loved and widely appreciated by Brits nationwide. In fact, there are roughly 10,500 specialist ‘Chippy’ shops operating in the UK – impressive number right? These figures are pretty crazy just for some battered fish and potatoes. Nonetheless, this simple, yet iconic British dish is (gladly) consumed by Brits, with an astounding 80% of people visiting fish & chip shops at least once a year – Fair.
Have a browse on our app, and we’ll promise you to have a few local Fish and Chip shops in your area, ready to make its way to your doorstep.
Monday Blues are a real thing, there’s no question about it. The day in itself can feel like an arduous, uphill climb that’s never ending.
