Back in March you entered lockdown, and your kitchen, with the naive enthusiasm of a first round Masterchef contestant. You were going to make ravioli, sous vide a carrot, and shower Barry from Eastenders - your firstborn sourdough starter - with warmth and affection. Fast forward to now, and things look very different. You’ve been banned from flour after Scarface-ing the kitchen, and Barry from Eastenders has been lost to the black hole, a.k.a. the top shelf of the fridge. Thankfully, there are plenty of excellent London restaurants able to give you a helping hand with a DIY meal kit. From pizza to pasta, here are 66 options to make you feel like a pro in your PJs.

THE SPOTS

Cue Point

££££ 195 Wood Ln

You might have not heard of a naco before this sentence. But you’re definitely going to want to get to know them after it, because the naan tacos at this British Afghan BBQ spot are excellent. And they’re delivering DIY naco kits across the UK, which come with smoked meat, either brisket or lamb, mini naan, toppings like Afghan green chutney, crispy onions, and sour cream. As well as all that, they also have a vegan naco kit. Order here.

Mei Mei

££££ Borough Market Kitchen

How do step-by-step instructions, pre-measured ingredients, and the knowledge that you could eat Mei Mei’s nasi lemak at home sound? Pretty great. This Singaporean spot is delivering nasi lemak, bak chor mee, beef rendang, and curry meal kits - but hurry, they’re only making a limited amount.

Karolina Wiercigroch

Hawksmoor Air Street

££££ 5A Air Street

This London steak specialist is not only delivering huge ribeye and t-bone steaks, you can get things like whole Sunday roasts, lobster, bone marrow, roast scallops, and their excellent sticky toffee pudding for dessert.

Provisions

Nic Crilly-Hargrave

Sidechick

££££ 397 Mentmore Terrace

Patty and Bun’s lockdown project started off with local roast chicken delivery, but now you can get their chicken kits across London. Each kit comes with a boneless chicken marinated in things like za’atar, or piri-piri rub. Order a kit here.

Decatur

££££ Hackney

Louisiana inspired seafood pop-up, Decatur, was planning on opening this year, but until that can happen they’re delivering DIY shrimp boils that you can throw into a large stock pot and boil.

££££ 344 Ladbroke Grove

The latest restaurant from people behind Pastaio and Palantino, JOY has an entire online shop of seasonal supplies and ready meals from Flora, their pop-up restaurant. There are homemade boil in the bag meals like confit duck leg with white beans and pancetta, or harissa cauliflower with lentils and tahini sauce. Alternatively, you could just get a whole apple pie. Order here.

River Café

££££ Thames Wharf, Rainville Rd

London’s most legendary Italian restaurant has all sorts of goodies to order online. Multi-coloured napkins and gelato spoons aside, you can also get dishes like a two-person portion of rabbit in chianti classico, squid with red chilli and rocket, or a £45 tray of tiramisu. It serves 6-8, but that’s completely up to you.

Angelina

££££ 56 Dalston Lane

The mix of Italian and Japanese flavours on Angelina’s menu isn’t your everyday fare, and the same goes for their at-home menu. You’ve got focaccia, chicken kaarage, and a sausage risotto with burnt soy butter. Order for delivery or collection from Dalston.

Karolina Wiercigroch

Ottolenghi

££££
££££ 287 Upper Street

A favourite and a nemesis of kitchens the world over, Ottolenghi restaurants have now made things much easier with their ready meal range. There’s a box for two where you can choose from things like roasted aubergine with medjool date salsa and cumin yoghurt, or squash with tahini and za’atar. Alternatively, you can order pouches individually, or just get a celeriac shawarma kit for two.

Karolina Wiercigroch

Salon

££££
££££ 18 Market Row, Brixton

Salon’s at-home set menus are the perfect blend of minimum effort and hearty gain. The sharing menu for two includes homemade sourdough with whipped butter and cheese custard, beetroot and goats curd, a venison pie or pumpkin canneloni, a pudding, and other nice stuff we haven’t mentioned.

The fine dining spot in Shoreditch has got options for a special occasion in the shape of their 7-course menu boxes.

Or the regular box has things like crab and barley porridge and quince sponge with vanilla custard.

Giulia Verdinelli

Pophams Hackney

££££
££££ 197 Richmond Road

If handmade pasta is your thing then you’ll like what Pophams is doing. Their set menu for two has two mains - one portion of taleggio capelletti with macerated grapes and hazelnuts, and another of oxtail bone marrow triangoli with beetroot and horseradish - plus a celeriac starter and profiteroles to finish. Order yours here.

Rochelle Canteen

££££
££££ Rochelle School

If you’re interested in all things exclusive and limited, then you’ll want to know about Rochelle Canteen’s meal kits throughout November. They’ve partnered with Resy, the booking platform, to bring together an £80 meal kit for two every Saturday of the month that’s inspired by chefs they’ve cooked with in different kitchens. First up is a kit inspired by I Sodi and Via Carota in New York.

The Camberwell Arms

££££
BritishPub  in  Camberwell
££££ 65 Camberwell Church St

There’s something uniquely satisfying about a good pub meal. It’s the booze, mostly. But when it’s from the Camberwell Arms, it’s more than likely the beef and bone marrow pie too. The brilliant gastropub has made a changing selection of their dishes available for delivery across the whole of London. All you need to do is finish them off at home. Think pies and sage and lemon roast potatoes, overnight ham hock, and venison and bacon hotpot, all plated by your own fair hands.

Karolina Wiercigroch

Hoppers

££££
££££ 4 Pancras Square

A Sri Lankan feast is on the cards if you order the Kalupol Chicken Kit from Hoppers’ online store Cash & Kari. At £45, it promises to feed up to four people with mutton rolls and hot dipping sauce, a whole marinated chicken ready to roast, a selection of sambols and garnishes, banana chips, pol roti dough, and two chocolate-coco biscuit puddings to share. There are also a couple of smaller kits that centred on a lamb kothu and a paneer kothu, as well as a variety of snacks, spices, beer, and cocktails. Just remember to order before 11pm on Sunday for nationwide delivery the following Friday.

Nic Crilly-Hargrave

Supa Ya Ramen

££££

The east London pop-up has made its ‘Inauthentic Ramen’, a vegetarian bowl featuring roasted celeriac in a confit tomato broth, along with an orange-yolked fudgy egg, crispy fried onions, and hand-cut noodles. They’re running out, so you want to order quick.

Dinings Sw3

££££
££££ Lennox Mews

On top of their takeaway and delivery options, Dinings are also doing a couple of make-your-own boxes, containing everything you need to prepare their popular tartar chips or temaki handrolls at home. This upmarket spot in Chelsea needs 48 hours to get these kits ready for collection or delivery (within six miles) and they contain everything you need to make 16 temaki handrolls (four of each of the tuna, salmon, lobster, and scallop varieties) for £135, or, for the tartar chips box, four chips of five separate fillings (toro, salmon, lobster, wagyu, beetroot) for £75.

Indian  in  City
££££ 1-5 Bloomberg Arcade

JKS Restaurants, the group that owns Gymkhana, Trishna, and Brigadiers (amongst others) has launched Ambassador General Store where you can buy individual dishes like tandoori lamb chops, BBQ butter chicken wings, and more dishes or meal boxes from their roster of Indian restaurants.

Karolina Wiercigroch

Corazon Taqueria

££££
TacosMexican  in  Soho
££££ 29 Poland St

Buy your corner shop’s entire basket of lime and prepare for a night of margheritas and tacos, because Soho spot Corazon’s carne asada tacos are available to make at home. Each kit serves four people and comes with 12 tortillas, two marinated hanger steaks, all your veggie bits, salsa ranchera, and citrus mojo.

Karolina Wiercigroch

Scully

££££
££££ 4 St James's Market

Scully is a restaurant that doesn’t hold back on flavour and now you can bring it into your own kitchen. The St James’s spot is doing three banquet boxes (beef, chicken and vegetarian) consisting of 6-7 dishes for two people for £80. So choose between beef short-rib pastrami, XO rice and desiree potatoes, or chicken marinated Malaysian curry pasta, and order from their website.

Karolina Wiercigroch

Kitty Fisher's

££££
British  in  Mayfair
££££ 10 Shepherd Market

Just in time for cold months and Saturday nights in is Kitty Fisher’s Autumn supper box. It’s a three-course meal for two featuring delicious-sounding bits like potted Cromer crab and toast, and roast duck leg with lentils and quince. There’s an entirely vegetarian menu too, and you can order the box with champagne and/or cocktails here if you fancy a big one.

Sambal Shiok

££££ 171 Holloway Road

A go-to for laksa in London, you can now get Sambal Shiok’s signature campur-style curry laksa to make at home. The kit is the equivalent of the special (with both poached chicken and king prawns) and comes with fat rice noodles, fried tofu puffs, bean sprouts, green beans, all in their hot shrimp-based broth. Order here.

Karolina Wiercigroch

Berenjak

££££
££££ 27 Romilly Street

Fire up your barbecue or, alternatively, pop to the shop and buy one of those grass-singeing tin numbers, because Berenjak are doing DIY kabab kits. The Iranian spot in Soho has started selling a choice of three delicious-sounding at-home kits, including a mazeh box with their excellent freshly made sangak bread, and also a couple of kabab box choices. One of which includes ‘bespoke metal skewers’, which sounds like a collaboration between Nisbets and Savile Row.

Giulia Verdinelli

Bubala

££££
££££ 65 Commercial Street

Bubala doesn’t just make some of the best vegetarian food in east London, it makes some of the best food in east London full stop. And now you can kind of pretend it’s your own (though no one will really believe you) by getting a Middle Eastern feast delivered to your doorstep. It includes their excellent hummus and labneh, halloumi with black seed honey and, of course, those confit-like latkes.

Farang

££££
Thai  in  Highbury
££££ 72 Highbury Park

The Thai-influenced neighbourhood favourite in Highbury is doing the kind of meal kits that we like the sound of. Or, to put it another way, they’re doing ready meals. The menu is pretty extensive, with classics like fish cakes and som tam salad on there, as well a big selection of curries. Alternatively, you can order a tasting menu box.

Gunpowder

££££
££££ 11 White's Row

Sometimes you eat at a restaurant and you think to yourself, ”I could have a decent go of making this”. And you really believe it. But Gunpowder is not that kind of restaurant. With their exciting spin on Indian classics, and flavours that you wouldn’t even know where to start with, this Indian spot is one you would not try to replicate. Until now. They’ve created a new DIY kit for two which includes a kashmiri ghee roast rack of lamb, mustard malai broccoli, and tandoori new potatoes with makhani sauce. So next time you eat at Gunpowder, you can finally think to yourself yes, I could actually make this myself. Provided they make a meal kit for it, obvs.

Kin+Deum

££££ 2 Crucifix Lane

If the only thing standing between you and a balanced diet [see: not eating microwave burgers for dinner] is your lack of skills in the kitchen, then wholesome restaurant Kin + Deum may be able to help. They’re delivering nourishing Thai meals for two which you can finish off at home. The menu changes weekly with things like summer lemongrass fritters, pad thai, and pak choi and mushrooms, which you can either order once or sign up for a subscription and get delivered every Wednesday. Say goodbye to Rustlers and hello to a mid-week three-course meal, because that’s just who you are now.

Bleecker Burger

££££
Burgers  in  Victoria
££££ 205 Victoria St

A single patty. Scratch that, two patties. Two slices of American cheese. One soft white bun. And you, wearing nothing but a chef’s hat. Welcome to the Bleecker Double Cheeseburger Burger kit (hat not included). You can choose between regular cheeseburgers, double cheeseburgers, and until 18th August the return of their collaboration with Gunpowder for the Bleecker X Gunpowder double cheeseburger, which is topped with Gunpowder sauce, and curry leaf and caramelised onion mayo. Check out their website to order.

Giulia Verdinelli

Tata Eatery

££££

We once referred to Tata Eatery’s katsu sando as ‘London’s most precise formation of meat and bread’. And although the precision may not be as on point if it’s being made by you, an amateur, how can cripsy Iberian pork in between two brioche slices, with raspberry and XO sauce taste anything other than seriously good. Get your DIY sando kit here.

Bao

££££
Taiwanese  in  Soho
££££ 53 Lexington St

You’re hopeful. You’re sweating. You refresh the webpage every ten seconds. No, we’re not talking about trying to secure Glastonbury tickets, we’re talking about trying to get your hands on Bao’s DIY kits. Although they’re incredibly popular, it’s worth a little organisation to secure one of their classic pork bao kits and maybe (definitely) one of their umeshu negroni cocktail pouches too. Orders go live every Monday at noon.

Smokestak

££££
BBQ  in  Shoreditch
££££ 35 Sclater St

The closest you’ve ever come to ‘mastering the kitchen’ is that time you played Mr Bumble in your primary school rendition of Oliver Twist. Luckily, the Smokestak meal kits look pretty foolproof. As well as meaty finish-at-home feasting boxes, they’re also delivering DIY bun kits including their beef brisket. Plus, there’s cocktails and sticky toffee pudding too.

Dishoom

££££
££££ 12 Upper St Martin’s Ln

We hate the queues to get into Dishoom. What do we like about Dishoom? Pretty much everything else. Especially their little breakfast champ, the bacon naan. Now you can eat it at home with their DIY kit. It’s packed full of dough and bacon. It looks relatively easy to master. And, it’s being delivered nationwide. Order on their website.

Luca

££££
££££ 88 St John St

This upmarket Italian restaurant near Smithfield Market, ships meal kits and deli boxes out Friday and Saturday every week across north and east London. The deli box is just £49 and contains a bottle of Prosecco and an array of salumi. Meanwhile, the £80 Italian feasting kit for two contains everything you need for a big night in, from antipasti, and a pasta primi, through secondi like glazed beef cheeks, contorni, and dessert.

Lahpet

££££
££££ 58 Bethnal Green Road

This cute and casual Burmese spot is delivering dinner hampers, noodle kits, and DIY salad situations. If you’re wondering what a salad is, it’s something you used to eat before your diet solely consisted of gin and ‘one more jammy dodger’. Expect ginger salads, a tea leaf number, coconut noodles, paratha, and importantly, margaritas.

Legare

££££
££££ 31 Shad Thames

Shad Thames Italian spot Legare is delivering Legare-at-Home pasta boxes, cannoli, and other options from their weekly menu. You might get a cavatelli with pesto, or pappardelle with oxtail, guanciale and porcini ragu, and there’s also a small selection of wine and pre-mixed negroni that you can get thrown in.

Monty's Deli

££££
££££ 35 Earlham St

If, like us, your days revolve around the excitement of deliveries and the thrill of a new SAD lamp arriving, then imagine how you’ll feel when a hunk of salt beef or a full reuben sandwich kit is coming to your door. That’s the deal from Monty’s online shop, and we can’t really recommend it enough because, let’s be honest, you’re not gonna be making salt beef anytime soon. Plus, there’s freshly baked bagels, pastrami, and Monty’s mustard to get involved in too.

Passo

££££
££££ 80 City Rd

Making your own pizza might sound easy but so did baking your own sourdough and we all know how that turned out. But, thanks to this casual Italian spot, you can now try your hand at making your own pizza in the safe hands of their instructions and prepared ingredients. Not into freshly baked pizza? Well, yes, we are judging you but you should know there’s a fresh pasta kit too. Head to their website to order.

Patty & Bun

££££
££££ 54 James St

In case you haven’t noticed, front gardens are the new back gardens, parks, festivals, and pretty much anything else. With that in mind, a stoop barbecue has been on our minds. If you’re thinking the same, then you’ll want Patty & Bun’s DIY lockdown burger kit. It comes with everything you need for an Ari Gold or Smokey Robinson burger. You can order here.

Quality Chop House

££££
££££ 94 Farringdon Rd

QCH is a rare thing. It’s one of London’s best restaurants, wine bars, butchers, and shops, and it’s possible to enjoy it all in your own kitchen as well. Lots of the dishes here have gained legendary, almost mythological status - their pies and confit potatoes to mention two - and you can order them to cook at home from their website.

Levan

££££
££££ 12 Blenheim Grove

The takeaway options from Levan in Peckham require minimal assembly and just a touch of simple reheating at home. We’re pretty sure even we could manage that. And we’re pretty sure the potato, mushroom, and Vacherin pie will impress anyone you choose to share yours with. Same goes for the tarte tatin. Order here.

Pizza Pilgrims

££££ 32-34 Byckingham Palace Road

If you’ve ever been on a feral teenage holiday, or if you fancied yourself as ‘a bit of a Heston’ at university, then you’ll be familiar with the concept of the frying pan pizza. The people who run Pizza Pilgrims are too. Only they’re not idiots. They’ve devised an at-home pizza kit for you to impress everyone at home with. Order here and, don’t worry, there is a YouTube tutorial as well.

Bocca Di Lupo

££££
Italian  in  Soho
££££ 12 Archer St

We once described this Soho restaurant as “seamlessly excellent”, and now they are sending out some excellent-looking monthly meal kits. Each month focusses on a specific region in Italy and is available in a vegetarian, meat, or fish version. There are also loads of booze options. Order here for delivery across London.

La Mia Mamma

££££
Italian  in  Chelsea
££££ 257 King’s Road

Pacco di mamma (mamma’s package) is how La Mia Mamma in Chelsea is describing their enormous Italian care package. It’s full of DIY and ready-to-eat bits, from pizza dough to arancini, to homemade sauces, and a kilo of pasta dough in case you’re feeling confident. The mega-package is made for two, but you can also order it for one if you prefer.

Sussex

££££ 63-64 Frith Street

Sussex is a modern British spot in Soho that’s offering beef wellington, pies, garlic, wild garlic pesto, rhubarb ice cream, and more from its restaurant group’s website.

Bancone

££££
££££ 39 William IV Street

If you live within a five-mile radius of Soho’s Golden Square, you can order Bancone at Home. Pasta Kits are available for two or four people, and come with everything necessary to recreate their bucatini cacio e pepe or their spinach and ricotta ravioli with sage butter in your own kitchen. They’ve also got a few anitipasti, dessert, and wine options in case you want to make a night of it. Order here.

Townsend

££££ 77-82 Whitechapel High St

Townsend is a modern British spot in the Whitechapel Gallery that’s making recipe boxes for you surreptitiously pass off as your own if you so please. For starters there are options of potato dumplings and brown shrimp, or asparagus with parsley mayonnaise and egg, while pork belly or curried potato cakes are on the mains menu. there are some Sunday roast options too.

M Manze

££££
British  in  Peckham

M. Manze’s is one of London’s most well known pie and mash shops. They’ve been around since 1902 and you can get them in your oven too. Order from their website and fill up your freezer with pastry, liquor and jellied eels as well.

Nonna Tonda

££££ 191 Victoria St

Nonna Tonda is a pasta spot in Victoria that’s taken on the very important mantle of ensuring every area of London has a supply of handmade pasta and sauces. It’s a simple (and fun) format in which you tell them how many people you want food for, select what you like or don’t like to eat, and then where you live. Then, just sit back and wait for the carbs to come to you.

Mac & Wild

££££
££££ 65 Great Titchfield St

Mac and Wild, home of the Veni-Moo burger (a double whammy of venison and beef), have created a burger kit so you can make their signature burger at home. Each kit comes with enough to feed four and includes everything you need, down to the gherkins. Order here.

The Good Egg

££££ 93 Church St

The popular Middle Eastern brunch spot isn’t delivering shakshuka all over London, but it is delivering a DIY recipe kit to its chocolate tahini babka if you’re looking to stand apart from the banana bread crowd.

Lurra

££££
££££ 9 Seymour Place

This Spanish restaurant in Marylebone has an 8-mile radius operation delivering including jamon cut to order, wine, and incredible pieces of Galician Blond steak.
