Naked, Edinburgh

Here is something different for Edinburgh's takeaway scene: Naked takeaway. It was about the time that somebody thought of something like this!
You can get freshly cooked, affordable, good quality seasonal food delivered to your door. Choose from their very attractive menu, place your order and get it delivered to your house. Now there's and option for those nights one doesn't fancy cooking and is not in a mood for Chinese or Indian...
For starters we shared 'Iberico chorizo and chickpeas', tapas-style stew with tomato, pepper and onion sauce and 'Killer king prawns', succulent king prawns marinated in garlic and coriander, coated with crispy Panko breadcrumbs. Both were decent starters but the prawns were a winner and I'm not a massive fan of them normally!
I ordered 'Yoga chicken', local free-range chicken marinated in buttermilk and herbs, served with a light creme fraiche dressing, cooked and served on a wooden skewer with a small gardener's salad. There was something missing and it was the dressing, but what the hell: I had juicy chicken on a bed of salad that tasted so fresh that it was just pulled out of the garden. I was also in a mood for comfort food so had an side order of delicious buttery mash as well. Mr Lovable had 'Jamaican stew pork' with rice and was oohing and aahing over it.
  Eek! Like how damn cute is their packaging? I am very much looking forward to our next order from Naked... I have a funny feeling that their burgers with chips would be sensational. 
fresh idea, fresh food

  1. That looks like really yummy food and a really original idea! Shame I live in Brighton, I guess that may be to far to deliver....

  2. Yeah, I think it would a bit too far for them to deliver :)

    Maybe somebody will open something similar in Brighton one day!
