Where to get ready-to-cook dishes for Noche Buena

By Brooke Villanueva Published Dec 15, 2021 4:09 pm

December may be the merriest time of the year, but for a lot of us, it’s also the busiest.

It’s the month when we have to finish all pending projects and finalize our next steps before the year ends. By the time we’re done, we would have to beat the holiday rush not only for gift shopping but also for groceries. 

If you, too, have been worried about getting caught up in the hustle and bustle and being left with little time to cook for Noche Buena, look no further! These online shops selling ready-to-cook dishes might help.

Having a Pinoy feast? Baliwag offers ready-to-heat meals like beef caldereta, laing, pork binagoongan, and kare-kare. What we would highly recommend, though, are its Chikititas (fried chicken) and crispy pata marinated in their well-loved spices and flavors—all you have to do is toss them in a pan and deep-fry. 

Whether you’re celebrating the holidays with a friend or your family, Kitchen City has various options for you. Its different sets (P1,000/P1,500/P2,000) that mostly highlight the goodness of Filipino food come with dessert and drinks. The best part? It even offers free delivery for your orders.

No time to shop for the ingredients you need? KooKit Manila has got you covered. The brand sells premium boxes (starting at P1,000) that contain all the essentials for your chosen sets among European, Asian, Filipino, and fusion dishes. Each one comes with protein, vegetables, and seasonings in certain measurements as indicated in the printed instructions inside it.

Looking to up your meat game? Tender Bob’s could be your best companion. Its bundles of frozen goods—ranging from P599 to P1,499—include a mix of U.S. Angus beef ribeye, U.S. Angus beef patties, pork chops, and oven-roasted beef belly that would all make for a fun grilling session with the entire family.
