Where To Get A Restaurant Meal Kit In January

They're baaacccckkkk!!! In what's hopefully the last hurrah for the restaurant meal kit, the enforced 8pm curfew (i.e. the lockdown that's not a lockdown) has meant the slow and sleepy resurgence of meal kits. It feels like a lot of people and places are totally burnt out and can't muster the energy for another round in the ring (or have had their staff obliterated by covid), but here's who's bringing the goods right now, and we'll update as more come on the market.

We've kept some helpful colour coding to make things a little easier for those of you with specific requirements.

(v) / (vg) Vegetarian/Vegan

(d) / (D) - Limited Dublin delivery / Dublinwide Delivery

(n) - Nationwide Delivery

(1) - Meals for one

Winedown (v) (d) (1)

Winedown is the big new addition (so far) to the at home kits this month. A six-course, finish at home meal for two is €55, and we're really liking the sound of the menu. There's a veggie version available, and meals for one (€30), and it's available for collection from Thursday - Saturday between 12:00 and 19:00, or delivery is €5 within 6km of the Montague Street restaurant. The deadline for orders is midnight the day before, and you can order here.

Tang (v) (d) (1)

Tang's dinner boxes are back as of this weekend, although sadly this time delivery is limited to those within the M50 (€8) - however they do say if you're really desperate they can get you a delivery quote. Otherwise you can collect from their Dawson Street café. The roast chicken, lamb kofta, and flexitarian (half meat, half vegan) boxes are €49.50, and there's a fully vegan option, as well as meals for one for €27.50. You can add on wine, granola and their ridiculous nutbutter, and you should. Order here.

777, Dublin 2 (v) (vg) (d)

777's at home boxes are back from next Thursday and you can get your order in now. There's a meat and a veggie version, it's €55 for 2-3 people to share, and you can add on their pre-mixed margaritas - reason enough to order. You can collect from 777 or Dillinger's in Ranelagh, and delivery is available for €8, but again only to those inside the M50 (we can already hear the boos). Order here.
