Not much of a cook, or your resident chef needs a break? Looking for a freshly-prepared meal (not-frozen) for dinner at home? A local podiatrist regularly gives these options to elderly patients trying to avoid meals on wheels. There are some fairly cheap options out there; here are the quality ones:
Bendigo Food Store 5442 3460
44 Strickland Road
Pasta sauces, lamb shanks and Italian-style meals.
Let’s Get Saucy 5446 9111
88a Victoria Street, Eaglehawk
Great customer service.
You can also purchase their meals at Bendigo Wholefoods (314 Lyttleton Terrace) and just add rice or spuds and greens or salad.
Williamson Street 24 Hour General Store 5443 8071
142 Williamson Street
Total nana food but cheap as. Maybe $6-7 for lasagne or curried sausages that would feed 2 with a side salad or similar. Bargain.
Pasta Pantry 5443 4323
102 Mitchell Street
Freshly-made pasta and ready-to-go sauces.
The Epicurean Delicatessen 5443 2699
79 Mitchell Street
You can fill a large tub of Italian-style fare for $15.50 and a small tub for $9 at The Epicurean. A large tub will easily feed two people.
Tuesday – Friday 8am-5pm, Saturday 8am-3pm
Edwards Greengrocer and Deli 5444 2244
Shop 7 & 8, 150 Condon Street, Kennington
Stop by Edwards on your way home; sliced corned beef and turkey, chicken breasts and salads ready to go, as well as many other home-made take-home meals to choose from. Open ’til 6pm. Closed on Sunday.
