As you may have guessed, here at Deliveroo HQ we love food. Seriously, we love food. As our office is a revolving door of delivery men, restaurant boxes and menu samples, it's pretty rare to get through a day without experiencing some serious food envy. To try and combat this, we've decided to start documenting some of the best dishes that have passed through our office in the last week; ensuring that nobody misses out on our gastronomical highlights. Welcome to 'Tried and Tasted'.
#1 Raw Carrot Cake
George (Mktg Manager), made us drool with envy when he ordered this incredible looking cake, which is basically a salad in disguise. Made from a blend of carrots, dates, walnuts, cashews, coconut, raw organic honey and aromatic spices, this cake has a great consistency, without the overly sweet taste. Take his word for it: 'it's a great guilt-free treat!'.
George's tip: Best enjoyed with your feet up on the couch and the TV on (or for making your coworkers jealous at lunch).
Order from HLS Cafe: Business Bay
#2 Jerk Chicken Roti
Anis (our GM), is a huge fan of this spicy grilled chicken that's served in a roti bread with a mix of rice and peas, jerk mayo, shaved cabbage and pickled cucumber. It's one of his absolute faves because of it's distinctive and piquant flavour.
Anis' tip: Make sure to drizzle on extra jerk sauce for an added kick!
Order from Melvin's Juice Box By Miss Lily's: Sheikh Zayed Road
#3 Immune Detox Juice
Naz (Mktg Associate), started the week off with this 'super healthy and super refreshing' detox juice that's made from a zingy mix of kale, cucumber, carrot, orange and ginger. She suggests getting the large size because you're going to love it.
Naz's tip: This juice is perfect to make you feel better after a night of crazy partying!
Order from Juicy Avenue: DIFC
#4 Chargrilled Chicken with Coconut Rice
Yousef (Special Projects Manager), had to fend off a lot of green-eyed glances while enjoying this delicious looking lunch. Topped with spicy cucumber salad and sticky coconut rice, Yousef promises that this chargrilled chicken will keep you full until dinnertime.
Yousef's tip: Filling and satisfying, this dish gives you the energy you need to get through a busy day.
Order from Busaba Eathai: JBR
#5 Nutella Minibon
Mahek (Content Manager), is our resident Cinnabon connoisseur. So if you're going to take anybody's suggestion for a lunchtime treat, you can rest assured that her fave is going to be delicious. Mahek vows that this combo of nutella and cinnamon is total magic.
Mahek's tip: I could actually eat Cinnabon for lunch, but it's best enjoyed as a yummy late night treat!
Now that's a lot of delicious looking food. Is anybody else hungry?
