I consider myself a struggling home cook, trying to come up with simple everyday meals for the family. We don't dine out often, but we welcome take-outs and food delivery at least once a week to enjoy a variety of dishes, and at the same time, give a self-imposed kitchen break for me. While we do have our usual list of dining places to call for direct home deliveries, the flyer menus are piling up with more establishments to try. For a change, we got to try Twoanyone.com delivery service a few Sundays back when they offered to bring us homestyle favorites from Cafe Mary Grace. Plus, there's a raffle waiting for you at the end of this post! =)
"Twoanyone.com is a world class delivery, take-out, and catering service for hundreds of best-of-class restaurants, retailers and specialty stores.
We believe in making life simple and easy for you by offering a one stop shop for all your needs wherever you may be!"
Before I browsed through the online menu of Cafe Mary Grace, I checked out what twoanyone.com has to offer. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that they have over 400 restaurants to choose from in 1,000 locations! Now I see what we've been missing, coz we never tried ordering from a third-party delivery service before.
Since we are big on ordering in, our main consideration is the convenience and speed of service. From the regular establishments we call for delivery, we can expect our orders to arrive from as fast as 15 minutes, up to 45 minutes. So I kinda expected that if delivery service was not in-house from the establishment, arrival of orders will take longer than what we're used to. But the main draw of twoanyone.com is the range of services and a long list of restaurants to choose from, including upscale dining places. That's where calling 2121212 would be your best bet.Here are ways to order from twoanyone.com:
- Call delivery hotline 212-1212
- Text ORDER to 0918-2121212 - A twoanyone operator will call the customer back to take their order
- Order online at www.twoanyone.com
- Order using your mobile phone via ClickTheCity Lifestyle app: http://www.clickthecity.com/mobile/apps/download.php
I was able to call the hotline around six o'clock, on a Sunday. The operator informed me that delivery may take about 60-90 minutes since they are quite loaded at that time. I know it's a bit late so I had a back-up meal already. I still pushed through with ordering since I want to have leftovers for the following day. =) I appreciated that I was forewarned about delivery time and was able to manage my expectations. However, I got two separate call backs half an hour apart to adjust my orders since a couple of food items were not available anymore. That's fine, but I wished there was better coordination with the restaurant to verify availability so order changes can be done with just one call back to save time and re-confirm final orders for immediate dispatch. From initial order-taking to arrival of food took a little over two hours. Good thing all the savory dishes were still hot and fresh, and each one was well packed.
I'm actually glad we got to have food delivered from Cafe Mary Grace in Podium mall because I've already tried a few of their pasta dishes and appetizers, aside from baked goodies like their famous cheese rolls and lemon squares.
A perfect starter of Dulong Paté with melba toast
We love pasta, so there's one for each of us - carbonara for daddy...
spaghetti with meatballs for the kids and gannies...
... and best-selling Mary Grace Mushroom Cream Pasta for me!
A surprise hit for me was this Chicken Inasal sandwich - who would have thought this smokey, flavorful fillet of chicken would be fantastic with pandesal!
The pillowy cheese rolls were sold out, so I got a box of soft, cheesy ensaymada instead...
... plus boxes of decadent Food for the Gods, and my favorite sweet and tart Lemon Squares!
The wide selection of restaurants is the main come-on to dial 2121212 delivery service. Just make an allowance of 2 hours from your call-in time. It's a convenient option for homemakers like me to consider especially if you will have a simple home party or guests coming over for lunch or dinner. There are so many choices from twoanyone.com, and they charge a reasonable 12% service fee on top of total bill. Payments can be made in many ways, from COD, credit card, to Globe GCash or Smart Money. Aside from the food delivery services, they also offer:
