Mr Jones was out with work buddies, I'd been working from home due to the head office move at work so though I'd take the opportunuty to *research* some more of my local food places and apps..
I though I'd give the Just Eat app a go because although they offer similar options to the Hungry House app I tried a while ago, the whole format was different in places.
Enter your post code to see who can deliver to you…
There's a nifty filter that lets you sort by cuisine so if you are craving Chinese like I was it's easy to find what you want.
If you're not sure where to order from, there's a handy feature that shows reviews from previous customers (some quite brutal like Geraldine below!)…
Once you've picked your restaurant you can browse the menu by course - this is a feature that I felt was missing from the Hungry House app that I really like with Just Eat.
Once you've picked what you want to eat go to the "checkout".
There are options for payment - I used my debit card but you can also pay by cash on delivery - and then you can keep track of how your order is getting on.
Everything came within the delivery window provided in the app and was piping hot - I liked that the food came very well wrapped as well!
The grilled pork dumplings were really tasty, the "wrappers" were a litle thick but overall very good. They are served with a vinegar dip which I really love but is probably not for everyone. Other sauces are available so add them on to you order!
Yet again I ordered too much food and was so full from the dumplings and soup that I didn't have the main course, "Hunan sea spiced bean curd", until the following day but it was delicious - loads of spongey bean curd, cabbage, baby corn, mushrooms, bamboo shoots and LOTS of garlic!
I definitely prefer the Just Eat app over Hungry House - it just felt easier to navigate and more user friendly. I hope you have takeaways near you that use Just Eat - I'd love to hear how you got on with it (and what you ordered, of course!).
