Homemade Indian food delivery/pick-up options

greatd9 Jul 20, 2010 11:18 PM

NYC or the Bay Area have lots of Indian women/men who make homemade Indian meals for delivery or pick-up on a daily or weekly. basis.

I haven't been able to find anything like that in Chicago. Anybody know what I'm talking about? Any recommendations?

      Luzzat up in Rogers Park makes homemade-quality Indian/Pakistani food for reasonable prices. No delivery, but you can pick it up.

      For the longest time it was just one woman doing everything, but now she has a few helpers taking orders and whatnot. I recommend ordering only when you have a reasonable amount of time to wait, since she still does most of the cooking all by herself.

      (Note: The place is so tiny that it is hard to eat without being affected by the other customers - so PLEASE, be considerate and don't bring your screaming children (or obnoxious friends for that matter.)

        I can cook indian meals for delivery based on the location on weekly basis. If you are interested please let me know. We can discuss and plan the menu and I can deliver or it can be picked up aswell.

          What area would a pickup location be? And what would you say are some of your specialties?

              You're bumping up a topic that was started earlier today? This forum doesn't move fast enough for that to be necessary, LOL!

              BTW, for another alternative for Indian food with delivery, you can search by address and type of food on www.grubhub.com

              I've never heard of something like that around here. I believe Chicago health codes require foods to be finished in a commercial kitchen, so unless the people were renting kitchen space somewhere, I'm not sure how they would get away with it.

                Not that I'm aware of. There are numerous Tiffin delivery sites online but not for Chicago.
