Their app is pretty cool. It has pictures of each dish, the chef that created them, cooking instructions, list of ingredients, nutritional breakdown, and user reviews for each dish. You can also order up till a week in advance, for multiple days as well! Once you place your order, the app shows the route that the delivery car takes, so you can track it all the way till it gets to your door.
So, they currently only service certain parts of LA, in addition to San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle and New York, but they are expanding. If you live in their service area, I highly recommend that you give it a try! You can use my promo code for $10 off your first order: D2344YTC.
This is one of my first orders from Munchery (all for 2 people lol). All their dishes come in packaging like this:
On the back of each box, there are instructions on how to heat it up:
This is what each dish looked like after taking off the outer sleeve:
So as you can see, they have appetizers, soups, entries, kids meals, and even desserts and drinks. For my first order, they threw in a free lemon cupcake dessert:
For kids meal, which I've ordered a couple times as appetizers, they come with gifts. I've gotten fun glasses and this ring with moving eyes... haha:
Ok so for some other orders that I've placed throughout the past few months, I've taken screen shots of the dish on their app. Now I'm going to put them next to how dishes turned out in real life. They may not look as pretty as the official pictures, but they do taste great!
Vegetable Tortilla Soup - one of my favorites that I've ordered multiple times!

Hatch Green Chile & Corn Chowder:
Thai Style Spicy Mint Cauliflower:
Lastly, the Pulled Pork & Roast Corn Bread
Funny I didn't realize until now, but apparently I was having a lot of corn in the above pictures lol. So, the dishes I've shown are kind of their heartier meals that my bf tends to order more often. But they also have a lot of great salads that I've tried. All in all, as far as taste goes, I'd give what I've tried an average score of at least 9 out of 10. That's the main thing that keeps me going back over and over again!
I think I happen to live really close to one of their offices or wherever they store the food. But each time after I place my order, they usually arrive within 20 minutes. I've never tried the order ahead thing. I just order on the spot. I think only one time it took them 30 minutes, but on average it's pretty reasonable especially given how crazy LA traffic gets around dinner time. I learned to read the cooking instructions on what I order before they get delivered, so I can time it and turn on the oven to preheat before my food gets here! It's kind of a fun experience if you are a couple, or if you have kids. You can all spend a few minutes together to "cook", and pretend like you are amazing chefs! =)
