As a Melbourne office worker, I am always looking for new things to try for lunch. Dining out every single day is simply too expensive, and it is hard to gauge the nutritional value of what I am eating. The other option is to bring food from home, but at 7 o’clock in the morning it can be hard to find the motivation to prepare something substantial.
Recently, I met up with a friend during my lunch hour – and she had a delightful looking Vietnamese salad. As a lover of fresh food, I naturally wanted to know which outlet she had bought it from. I was surprised to hear that it was not from any of the local cafes or restaurants – rather it was delivered to her home last week. It was then that I knew I needed to try out By Two Sisters!
I placed an order via their website and was very pleased with the quick and efficient service that they provided. I had my first supply of fresh, ready-made Vietnamese food in no time. On trying the food, I was blown away to say the very least. The Vietnamese beef salad was certainly a highlight, as it tasted great, yet was clearly very healthy. With many takeaway food options, it is hard to assess exactly how healthy they are, as you really have no clue what is in them. I have encountered many takeaway options that are touted as healthy; while I’m sure they are anything but! When I opened By Two Sisters’ beef salad, the ingredients were blatantly obvious, as they were all fresh vegetables, herbs and beef with absolutely no additives. The salad dressing came in a separate container which I found to be ideal, as it allowed me regulate how much flavour my salad had. I thought this was a fantastic idea to cater for differing tastebuds! The salad was light, yet flavoursome and did not leave me with a heavy feeling that so many other meals tend to do. However, despite being light it easily satisfied my intense lunch-time hunger. I also felt that all of their meals were based on very authentic Vietnamese cooking.
I am so glad to have found By Two Sisters amazing Vietnamese street food, as I now have a healthier, more affordable lunch option that is more convenient than ever! If I have a really busy day a work, it is great to know that there is a ready-made, nutritionally balanced meal waiting for me in the fridge.
