Home-Based Delivery Services that Remind us of Mom

    Having a hot homemade meal after a long day of work is probably one of the most satisfying moments in one’s day. Unfortunately, it is a pretty rare occurrence, especially if you live alone and have a full-time job. Some people prepare their meals as the solution, cooking their food at the beginning of every week and storing it in their fridge for when they come home. However, we have a list of online home cooked-food services that will save you the trouble and remind you of your mom’s food. 

    Feteer Gedaty 

    One of the most iconic Egyptian breakfast dishes is feteer meshaltet, which combines layers of ghee or butter and pastry that results in a flaky exterior and a pillowy, chewy interior. You can have it with molasses, tahini, cheese, or even on its own. Feteer Gedaty’s makes the traditional pastry in the same manner that our grandmothers used to make. You can order this service’s goodies for breakfast, or have its stuffed sausage or cheese feteer for lunch. Check it out on Instagram here


    Getting yourself a home-cooked meal is one thing, and having hamam, or stuffed pigeon, is another. However, you don’t have to think about cooking up a hamam meal for yourself from scratch because here’s where Hamamshi comes in, presenting an all-pigeon cuisine. It has all of the usual recipes and some of its own creations, too, such as its pigeon maqlooba and pigeon tajines. You can also order the side dishes that you traditionally have alongside a hamam dish, like molokhia and spiced rice! You can check out its menu here
