This Week: Foodhini Delivery, Whiskey Flights, Entree DC
Craving authentic multicultural meals? Check out Foodhini - with a roster of emerging immigrant chefs creating traditional foods from around the world, the delivery service is a standout option for those looking to find authentic meal options. I recently ordered from the online restaurant (Lao Tapioca Dumplings - pictured above - and Meatballs and Sticky Rice from Chef Mem as well as the Grilled Kebab Platter from Chef Majed) and was so impressed by the flavors of each dish, as well as the ease of the delivery process and re-heating instructions. Current chefs and cuisine include: Chef Yebralem (Eritrean cuisine); Chef Mina (Iranian cuisine), Chef Wing (Filipino cuisine), Chef Mem (Lao cuisine), and Chef Majed (Syrian cuisine). Opt for a single delivery or go for the Taste the World subscription and have weekly meals picked out for you from the rotating menu!
