London's food delivery scene just got a new boost with the arrival of European delivery company Taster. Founded by one of Deliveroo's top guys, they already have spaces in France and Spain and have now set their sights on the UK.
Like Deliveroo and Uber Eats they have their own kitchens and have been working with chef consultants, including the two-Michelin Star Korean chef Sang Hoon Degeimbre from L'Air du Temps in Brussels, with whom they developed three Pan-Asian kitchens - Mission Saigon (Vietnamese), O Ke Kai (Hawaiian poke bowls) and Out-Fry (Korean fried chicken).
Mission Saigon serves up a range of dishes, many of them veggie - like Tofu Dragon Balls (tofu croquettes with green curry, coriander and coconut milk, served with a sweet and slightly spicy sweet sauce) and chef specials like Mi Xao "Shaked" Bō (fried noodles with carrots, onionsand marinaded beef served with coriander, soy sprouts and sweet & sour sauce.
O Ke Kai's Hawaiian dishes include the Mc Salmon - Scottish Salmon marinated with homemade wasabi mayonnaise, grated carrots and cucumbers in a toasted bun as well as Royal Hapu' (royal sea bream with avocado, red cabbage, edamame and marinated carrots).
Out Fry's Korean dishes use Vendée chicken and you can choose from strips on their own, in a bun or served with rice.
All three can currently be ordered from Hackney and Battersea via Deliveroo and there are plans to open a North London kitchen soon.
