Gourmet chef prepare food, delivered to your door
We've all had those weeks that are set to be so overwhelming that coming home and cooking a meal is simply not appealing. The trouble is that you're typically stuck with takeaway or delivery options such as pizza, Thai, and the like.
So if you're craving a delicious home cooked meal, newly opened Monkey Chops is the ideal solution.
Offering a home cooked meal delivery service to the South East of Melbourne (Windsor/ Prahran/South Yarra) area, Monkey Chops delivers everything to your door packed up in containers that go straight into your home oven and before you know it... dinner is served.

Prepared by a trained gourmet chef, Monkey Chops offers a selection of meals that won't overwhelm you with too many options and nothing with ingredients so fancy you end up Googleing what the ingredients are. Just honest to goodness, great good.
You'll also find weekly specials listed on the site so you'll never be stuck ordering the same meal more than once. And if you order before midday, you get next day delivery service.
We were lucky enough to test out the service for dinner ordering the milk braised pork with green peppercorns and roasted kipfler potatoes as well as the Moroccan lamb shank with Moroccan spices and dried cranberries, topped with green olive salsa served with a Mount Zero chickpea puree.
With an extra order of veggies, our order also arrived with a side of cheese and herb foccacia.

Ordering is simple, head to the website and while the site may be simple, be assured the food is not. And order away. Portions are hefty and arrive packaged with all the re-heating instructions easily printed on the lids. Food can be refrigerated for up to 3 days, but they honestly won't likely last quite that long as you'll have them scoffed down in no time.

So whether your looking for an easy meal option, dining for one or even if you're organising a dinner party and simply just want something delicious without the fuss, you're certain to love Monkey Chops.
We also ordered the cauliflower and truffle soup and while the portion sizes for dinner were so generous, we're eagerly hanging on to the soup for lunch tomorrow (an extra bonus!) In hindsight, probably should've saved that tasty bread for the soup.
It's simple, just log on, choose your meal and enjoy a deliciously cooked dinner without the shopping, fuss, or dishes.
