{Order in}: Custom Asian meals from Obento

By 21:13 Sunday, 14 February 2016 , , ,

Gurgaon has yet another lunch delivery service and this one's for the Asian food lovers. Obento delivers healthy and fully customisable Bento boxes and dim sums to your doorstep- you can place the order using the fairly neat Obento App.

The all vegetarian menu {YAY!} comprises of the Bento, you can select the base, sauce, veggies, and add ons . The bento box is not compartmentalised as you would expect, everything comes mixed together. There is a good variety of dimsums to choose from as well.

You can also choose the time slot of your delivery, along with payment option.

My experience 

The food ordering and selecting of the ingredients is quite convenient. My food arrived right on time and warm, didn't require reheating. I chose Udnon noodles with hot garlic sauce along with bell peppers, broccoli, zucchini, carrot from the veggies and baby corn, fried onion and peanuts from the add-ons.

The Sauce was bang on and I loved the texture of the noodles. The vegetables added a nice crunch. You can only choose 3 add ons and after a mental wrestle between burnt garlic and peanuts, the latter won. It was the best ingredient decision because {peanuts are awesome, duh} they lent a much needed nuttiness to the meal.

The Mix veg Dim Sums were delicious and generously stuffed! I also liked the tangy sauce they sent along with it. I am pretty keen on trying their Siu mai dumplings next time.

The catch

You can only order through the app. Also, the menu is very limited, it's good that they are doing only a few things and getting them all right but adding a few desserts or drinks will be good! Unlike most of their contemporaries that serve areas of South Delhi too, Obento currently only delivers in Gurgaon.

Will I order again?

Definitely! The price point is a little high than what I usually like to spend on lunch- the total bill for a bento box and dimsums was around 420 bucks but the portions were pretty big too, can easily be shared between two people.

The entire process of selecting the ingredients of your Bento box is exciting. You can play around with a lot of different combinations each time you order. So go ahead, try it out or let your G town buddies know.
