I was recently contacted by the folks at Montreal food delivery service FreshMint to see if I wanted to try their food delivery service. Umm.. yes please! I love to cook, don’t get me wrong, but a break every now and then is welcome – plus I know for the first little while with baby we will probably get food delivered so it gave me the chance to try out a new option.
FreshMint is a home-cooked meal delivery service using locally-sourced ingredients and all meals are delivered by bike. The menu changes weekly but includes recipes like open-faced steak and guacamole sandwich or spice-rubbed chicken tajine.
I was lucky enough to try the Guinness beef brisket with pickles, coleslaw and dijon mustard. Honestly, it was really good and still hot when it was delivered, right on time, to my front door.
The meals are $12 which includes delivery and tip. Frequent customers can pay $10 per month and have their meals delivered for only $9 a pop. Once you sign up to the service you will receive an email every weekday at 11am and customers can order any time before 1pm. Meals are offered for both lunch (11am – 1pm) and dinner (6-7:30pm) and meals arrive 30-45 minutes after the order is placed. Portion size and price is the same for both lunch and dinner.
Lunch delivery zones are pretty much downtown, St-Henri, Little Burgundy and Pointe-St-Charles (see their website for exact postal codes). The dinner zones are a little larger and include H2X and H2W. Westmounters rejoice – H3Y will be added in the fall!
I found the website a bit confusing but a new version will be released by the beginning of September. In the meantime, I found FreshMint to be great for the food, service (delivered on time!) and price point.
