Saving Mom’s Sanity: An Eat Out the Box Review!

One of my favourite finds for the past few months has to be the amazing healthy take-out delivery service that operates in my ‘hood – the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town. Eat Out The Box had come onto my radar a few months back thanks to friends ordering their delicious pizza’s when we were round for a catch up… I’ve been hooked ever since!

Because these are quite simply the best takeaway pizzas in Cape Town!

Think thin crusts, ample cheese (without the grease) and amazing toppings. YUM.

Eat Out The Box Review

Recently Eat Out The Box asked me to try out their service and, as we’ve already fallen hard for their pizza, I was quick to say YES!

Eat Out The Box is an owner-run, family business based in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town. Their passion for food is evident in the delicious handmade take-aways they deliver across the suburbs of their local community.

From wood fired, thin-based pizzas, more-ish pastas, gourmet burgers, fresh salads and slow cooked southern style BBQ pork belly ribs, their food is the first reason why you’ll fall in love with Eat Out The Box. But there are plenty more!

For busy moms like me who often get home after 6, and need to rush out again by 7, the convenience of pre-ordering dinner earlier in the day via their website and having it delivered straight from their kitchen to my doorstep is a WIN!

Another huge bonus is that all their food is super healthy. Each meal is personally made (not mass-produced) from family recipes ensuring that your family get a healthy, fast food that tastes great!

Over the past month we’ve indulged in their awesome pizza on the regular, allowing us to discover our firm favourites, but we’ve also discovered their burgers. And these are equally as epic!

Truth be told we may have stuck to the pizza time after time, were it not for their super special of 2 Burgers for R169 (including fries!)

Eat Out The Box offers incredible special offers, of which I’ve listed a few below…

You know what is possibly the worst torture for a blogger… writing about the delicious meals you’ve had in the past while chewing on a piece of dry rye!

As I type up my review of our Eat Out The Box experience I’m literally salivating on my keyboard at the memory of their delicious burgers, flavourful pastas and thin-crust pizzas….

At least I know what we’ll be having for supper! No contest!
