Sitting on the couch in front of the TV with a bowl of pasta is a real treat – occasionally. But with so many similar days blurring together, it’s no longer something to look forward to. While we know premium home-delivery service Providoor is a go-to for special banquets worth gorging on, it also hosts an array of simple, quick – and no less delicious – dishes worth rewarding yourself with mid-week.

We perused the menus for five meals worth bookmarking.

Tokyo Tina – King Katsu set
Chapel Street’s Tokyo Tina specialises in modern Japanese cuisine that grabs influences from further afield. Its King Katsu set is pork tonkatsu – a breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet – offset by a crunchy cabbage and chive combo with yuzu dressing. A quick shallow fry and eight minutes in the oven is all you’ll need for a serious tonkatsu in a flash.

La Tortilleria – Taco feast
La Tortilleria already sends its prized corn tortillas to some of the best Mexican restaurants around the country, so it might as well send a stack to your house too. For this feast you get 15 tortillas, two carne or vege fillings, frijoles con chipotle (refried beans with chipotle), papas con chorizo (potatoes with meat-free chorizo), fresh guac, pico de gallo, salsa, and a clutch of tortilla chips. It will feed between two and four people, depending on how hungry you are.

Pepe’s Italian – Spicy rigatoni vodka
Not all pasta is created equal. This deceptively simple rigatoni is a testament to that. Pepe’s Italian specialises in Italian-American food, and vodka-infused sauces are a modern staple. While the vodka gives the sauce body and depth, a little Calabrian chilli keeps you on your toes. If you want to take your weeknight pasta to another level, start here.

David’s – Vegan yum cha feast
Named for owner David Zhou, David’s does unfussy Shanghai-style fare, made to share. This vegan feast, served yum cha-style, is more than enough for two. There’s mushroom dumplings, Buddha buns, broccoli with (vegan) oyster sauce and more.
