There are lots of great meal-delivery services in Melbourne, but few let you recreate well-known meals from your favourite restaurants at home. Yes, you could order takeaway – but there’s a certain satisfaction that comes with recreating (and nailing) the same flavours on your own.

Make-Out Meals delivers DIY meal kits with everything you need to whip up restaurant-worthy recipes in 40 minutes or less. And Victor Liong’s inventive Lee Ho Fook has just joined the roster, which already features Entrecote, Mamasita, Coda and 40 other top restaurants.

On the menu this week are Lee Ho Fook’s popular kung pao chicken, with Sichuan peppercorns, chillies and cashews, and its char kway teow, packed with chewy rice noodles, beef and bean sprouts. Make-Out Meals changes the menu weekly, so if you want in on these particular dishes, order sooner rather than later. Each meal kit comes packed with fresh, pre-portioned ingredients – even house-made XO sauce straight from the restaurant’s kitchen.

This year, gift them a dinner to remember with a Broadsheet Gift Card.


You can order a one-off box (starting at $89) or a weekly subscription (from $59) to get two to four meals of your choice. Have a special occasion coming up? There are also dinner-party packs that feed up to 10 people. With more than 200 recipes in its repertoire, Make-Out Meals’ menu changes each week, offering six new dishes (each from a different restaurant) to choose from. There’s also a range of vegetarian, pescetarian, nut-free, gluten-free and dairy-free options so nobody misses out.
