There’s a new kid on the block when it comes to the meal deal. Two Dine for £10 deals are a competitive business, and with all the options out there it can be pretty tricky to figure out who to choose from. After all, a main, side, starter or dessert and wine for a tenner is hard to argue with, and makes for a pretty simple meal for you and your other half. Plus, they tend to be utterly delicious and really good value, so how could you possibly pick between them?
… but, what if you could get your meal deal delivered to you? Now you’re talking.
Say hello to the Ocado meal deal.

Ocado Poached Salmon Mousses
When you’re choosing to indulge in multiple courses for your rather lovingly crafted Ocado meal deal, sometime sit’s nice to start out with something light. Ocado’s own poached salmon mousses are an ideal solution, with Scottish poached salmon blended with soft cheese, mayonnaise and lemon to create a light but iconic flavour.
With rustic garlic baguette and a variety of deli flatbreads in among the sides on offer, you can dedicate yourselves to a wonderfully simple (ready to eat, in fact) starter that syncs up perfectly with your choice of side – but an addition of some simply crusty bread or softer soda bread will work wonders.
A crisp, dry white wine normally works well with soft salmon dishes, and the Berberana Del Sur Sauvignon Blanc served up in the Ocado Two Dine for £10 deal is a shining example – crisp, fresh and delicious with the salmon!
Roast in a Bag Piri Piri Chicken
It’s rather comforting that you aren’t only going to have a great value meal deal to enjoy, but a ridiculously simply dinner to cook too. Ocado’s roast in the bag chickens are literally oven ready and guaranteed delicious
Layered vegetables make for a great combination, but you can throw in a classic British twist if you choose to go chip-happy and fall back on frites, or go with some alternate potato options let the sour cream dip with the wedges cut through the spicing.
Stay rich with chocolate for dessert too – I mean, it’s hardly something you could complain about – with a crisp Rosé to compliment the spices (a surprising recommendation, but one that is well received). The Fynbos in the meal deal selection covers this task more than handily.
Hereford 30 Day Dry Age Burgers
These burgers have been looked after. I’d, frankly, be doing myself a disservice to not talk about the meat within the Ocado range, and these burgers are a shining example of the care typically taken for the meat and just how wonderful something simple can be.
Garlic skewered prawns to start give you a beautiful pub-bistro-dinner feel to your home cooking, and with a wide variety of salad and veg to accompany (we’d go for baby carrots and green beans), you’re looking a at a pretty stunning meal without any of the hassle. Inevitably, you’ll want to avoid a bread-based starter if you’re indulging in burgers, so ducking out for a dessert instead is a good recommendation here too.
When it comes to red meat, you can’t argue with red wine to round things off; the Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon brings the classic fierce and fruit Chilean flavours to the fore, creating the perfect wine to accompany your carnivoristic tendencies.
Gü is famous for desserts – it’s borderline indisputable. That is because they tend to be chock-full of gooey chocolate loveliness, or some of the most simple-to-prepare but delicious desserts around.
This is no exception. After you read the words ‘treacled-infused cheesecake’, it’s hard not to be head over heels.
The classic Millionaires Shortbread has been reinvented with chocolate biscuit crumb and salted caramel, along with a luxurious ganache, to make for a deeply rich but more-than-moreish dessert that is an almost irresistible indulgence. It’s as good as it looks like it’ll be.
Ocado Meal Deal Dates
You might have to get in quick – the Ocado meal deals don’t tend to stay around for long, and the best dishes can sell out fast if you’re not keeping your eye on the ball. Ocado also doesn’t release the dates of a meal deal in advance, so you’ve got to keep up with the latest offers to ensure you can jump in on a tasty meal deal from one of the new kids on the meal deal playing field.
The Ocado website also makes it quick and easy to see what you’ve saved by jumping in to the deal, and lets you browse for all your other bargains at the same time. Who can argue with a meal deal delivered to your door?
