Ordering food online can be frustrating, with dishes sometimes arriving cold and your choices often limited. Meal plans can take the madness and monotony out of delivery. Stay sane and healthy with these meal plan services.
The health-conscious restaurant now offers meal plans, too.

Appropriately enough, Paleo Robbie helped fuel the paleo diet’s rise in Bangkok. Everything this delivery pioneer serves is organic, with no farmed fish or preservatives, mimicking the diets of our caveman ancestors. But check out the list of dishes and you’ll quickly realize it isn’t at all stone age fare: beef stroganoff, lamb shank and potato mash, and Norwegian mackerel with grilled squash and vegetables. One meal is THB299 (plus THB50 for delivery to Sukhumvit and Siam).

The food-centric non-profit now offers a range of plant-based meal plans, plus organic produce from its delivery partner, Farmtastic. All plans are monthly. You can choose from four to 10 dishes per week (delivered every Sunday to locations within central Bangkok). You can customize the spice level of your food, as well as any other dietary needs you may have. There’s a special package for fans of tempeh, too. The prices are very affordable, at THB2,000/month for four dishes per week up to THB5,500/month for 10 dishes each week. The food largely sticks to Thai flavors (panang curry, pomelo salad, cucumber somtam), but there are some surprises, like barbecue pulled pork-style jackfruit.

Chef Deepanker “DK” Khosla of Haoma is behind this health-focused service. Like he does at his flagship fine dining restaurant, here he also prepares food with sustainability in mind.

Choose your plan — vegetarian, keto, “shred,” vegan ayurvedic, and more — how many days you want, and how many meals you want each day. Each dish comes with nutritional information, too. From THB1,700 (three days) to THB14,900 (four-week programs).
