Has anyone used Mamaluv meal delivery?

I'm looking to give a gift of pre-prepared meals to a mom-to-be. I found this site:

Curious whether anyone has any experience with them? Or whether you have any recommendations for a top notch meal delivery service that delivers to Mississauga?

  1. i'm curious as well ... i'd like to give this to my bro/SIL who are expecting soon.

    1. Never heard of them but I can tell you that I will never forget each and every person who made, sent or dropped off food for us in those early, sleep-deprived days. It's a brilliant idea and whether or not you do it through a meal service or a regular caterer or even drop off a small cooler of items that can be frozen (eg. soups, premade pastas, pizzas, curries, etc. - that's what someone did for us) - in any way, shape or form, it's a brilliant idea and your friends will thank you profusely for it (once they regain consciousness and lucidity).

      1. Hi there - did you ever end up ordering anything from here?

          I gave this as a gift to a friend, but I haven't heard a report back, sorry!

        2. You can also buy pre-made frozen dinners at Supperworks. Great gift for new parents.

          1. We ordered food for this evening (we were given a voucher). We haven't gotten it yet, but they say they will drop it off between 7pm-11pm, which to my mind is... useless. I don't usually eat dinner at 11pm, and since kids run on routine, knowing (even vaguely) when it might arrive seems important. I can't imagine we won't simply put it in the fridge and eat it for lunch the next day, to be honest. But I'll report back if it's good.

              My impression of Mamaluv's service is that it's not really meant as a meal delivery like you might get from a restaurant, to be eaten at the time you receive it. The food is delivered partially cooked and frozen, not fresh.

                It just arrived, and you're absolutely right! I didn't get the impression from their site or menu that it would be that way (probably my fault for being tired/daft). It just arrived, frozen, and it looks great. Looking forward to eating it later in the week.

                1. re: nesbittj

                  from the website under Menu and warming instructions : All Mamaluv meals arrive par-cooked & frozen for enjoyment at your convenience – and can be easily warmed in the microwave or oven.

                  Addendum: read the menu again. It explains that they're frozen. I'm an idiot. Definitely a great gift!
