Munchery has its own kitchens around the country where they cook their own food. They provide mostly dishes that will work well and taste great when reheated later, giving you the feel of a great home cooked meal. “A great dish to ‘Muncherize’ is a dish that’s simple, that’s easy for the customer to reheat and maintain the same integrity you’d have in a restaurant dish,” says Steven Levine, Munchery’s R&D chef.
You can order same-day delivery (with varying cut-off ordering times), as well as scheduled deliveries up to a week in advance.
