Best Value Meals from GrabFood, Starts at P99. From a freelancer’s perspective: Freelancing ‘in this economy’ can be hard. And working overtime is becoming a norm. Taking time off to source ingredients from the market, wash/prepare meat/vegetables, cook a meal, clean the table, and wash the dishes can be extremely consuming, especially when the time and energy to do those can be used for work or sleep. This is why I am grateful for food delivery services such as Grab. It saves me time, energy, and money when I’m lucky.
Leading Superapp Grab takes center stage when it comes to everyday solutions – deliveries (food, mart, express), mobility (rides), and more! One of its features, GrabFood, is becoming a digital staple in everyday life – to the office and at-home workforce, students, etc.
However, convenience doesn’t have to be expensive. GrabFood highlights the ‘Starts at P99+’ section of the app, assembling merchants with value meals that start at (even below) P99. On top of this, GrabFood the section has daily deals and promos! Here, we list five best-value meals that start at P99.
Lechon Kawali with Rice at P85 | Kawalian Restaurant
Above is one serving of Lechon Kawali (deep fried pork belly) at P70 and one serving of Plain Rice at P15 – totaling P85. Kawalian Restaurant is located at M.Locsin Street and the delivery fee (on my end) is only P38. The total amount paid for this order (including delivery) is P123. Plus, it only took a few minutes to have this order delivered. Other dishes available at Kawalian Restaurant include Pork Teriyaki (P70 without rice), Pork Binagoongan (P70 without rice), Bicol Express (P65 without rice), Chicken Curry (P65 without rice), Chicken Adobo (P65 without rice), Crab Meat (P75 without rice), and more.
Ebiyaki at P99 | Otako Monsta
Above is one serving of Ebiyaki (deluxe balls with umami shrimps) for only P99 from Otako Monsta. Ebiyaki is popular street food in Japan and a variation of the popular Takoyaki. Tako from Takoyaki means ‘octopus’ and Ebi from Ebiyaki means shrimp. Otako Monsta takes pride in its variety of Takoyakis – Ebiyaki (shrimp), Hotateyaki (scallop), Chizuyaki (cheese), and Dezatoyaki (matcha). All are at P99 each. Its signature Monsta, meanwhile, is a combination of all (octopus, scallop, shrimp, and cheese) and is priced at P139. The delivery fee (for my location) is only P28.
