Home style meals conveniently delivered to your door step
Home cooked quality meals with a difference. Antonio's or 'Tony's' Quality Meals are a local South Australian food production business providing customers with an array of delicious, nutritious, low-fat, and home style, readily prepared meals. Primarily based online, Tony's Quality Meals are located in Salisbury and offer a delivery service to numerous metropolitan suburbs, as well as pick-up. I was on the hunt for a healthy, fast and convenient food option for days that I'm either too tired to cook, have work, or have various appointments scheduled. Tony's Quality meals are an excellent option because the dishes are homemade and the ingredients are natural, light and flavoursome. What's more, they're a lot better for you than the majority of fast-food options.
Society tends to seek convenience and efficiency, and Tony's Meals delivers this motto, which successfully appeals to new and existing customers. Ordering online has never been so easy, with an incredibly user-friendly ordering system that anyone can use. Similarly, their pricing is impressive compared to the frozen meals found in a local supermarket by renowned brands that usually come with a price and are often filled with artificial flavours, colours, preservatives and heavy fats. Likewise, as consumers we're left in the dark about how the products are cooked and prepared, whereas at Tony's Quality Meals, customers are guaranteed freshness.
You'll find an extensive variety of 32 diverse options, including 30 diabetic and cholesterol friendly and 14 gluten-free alternatives. Meal sizes range from 350g to 400g; a reasonable and generous portion for a prepacked meal. When ordering online, Tony's Quality Meals offer a selection of specials, including 6 single meals for $33.00, 6 kids meals for $16.50 or 2 family meals for $44.00; there's a little something for everyone. At the supermarket the average price of a gluten-free product ranges from approximately $8 - $10, however, a healthier and home style gluten-free dish at Tony's Meals is cheaper at $5.50 for a single container meal. You can also choose to pay via cash, credit card or bank transfer. I ordered the Oven Baked Chicken Parmigiana, Chicken Stir Fry and Beef Lasagne. All three were tasty, wholesome and filled the room with an appetizing scent that left me wanting more.
Having been diagnosed with various health issues that have restricted my diet, I can fortunately rely on Tony's Quality Meals to provide me with a satisfying and stress-free food experience. I'm not left with a sickening or bloated feeling post-meal. Overall, Tony's Quality Meals are my go-to quick and easy food option that I would definitely recommend to those who enjoy a healthy feed without the hassle of cooking, particularly on those super busy days. Whether you're on a newly found health kick, continuing an existing fitness regime, or don't have the knack for cooking, Tony's Meals are low in calories and fat and make an ideal menu choice for lunch or dinner.
