Nowadays, working parents opt to buy their kids’ school lunch from fast food joints or choose to buy food from the nearest convenience store. Understandably, time is essential and preparation of meals can become time consuming.
Thanks to Almost Gourmet or “ALGO” for short, good nutrition need not be compromised anymore. ALGO is a home-based food delivery service that caters to office workers and private residents who enjoy delicious and healthy food at very affordable prices.
Their meals are placed in reusable plastic containers with disposable plastic spoon and fork. I had the pleasure of sampling some of their products.
First up were the ALGO Solo Meals:
Roast Beef Pasta with Whole Wheat Bread Slices (Php120.00)
If you need a better carb alternative, take Pasta instead. Being a complex carb (unlike rice), it is broken down by your body much faster. This cream-based meal with chunks of beef is wonderfully filling as it is tasty.
Tarragon Mushroom Chicken with Brown Rice and Sautéed Vegetables (Php125.00)
Tarragon is particularly suitable for chicken dishes. This flavorful herb further enhances the overall taste. Perfect for kids!
TRIVIA: Eating brown rice on a regular basis lowers the risk of type 2 diabetes. It also promotes a healthy body weight and balanced blood sugar levels.
Pork and Chicken Sisig with Sautéed Vegetables (Php130.00)
Who doesn’t love Sisig? This dish puts a twist on this popular fare by adding chicken in the mix. Not too salty nor spicy – it tastes just right. Perfect with a glass of your favorite cold beverage.
Porkloin Steak with Mushroom Gravy + Mashed Potato and Sautéed Vegetables (Php125.00)
These are tasty and tender chops. The mashed potatoes are just perfect… to die for! They use real, honest-to-goodness, potatoes and not the dehydrated/powdered ones you’d normally find in supermarkets.
ALGO Frost Bites Cook-It-Yourself:
35 – 40 sticks per pack with Honey Mustard Dip and is ready for baking or frying. NO extenders! Kids will surely love it!
You should also try their seasoned Aussie Steak at Php650.00 per kilo. It approximately contains 2-4 slabs of meat with Mushroom Gravy Sauce and is ready for frying or grilling. It comes in three cuts: Prime Rib, Rib Eye, or T-Bone. Mine was cooked ‘well done’! Delicious!
