Surprise your loved one with these delicious ‘dinner for two’ or a full-fledged dinner meal for your family. If you’re one of those type who wants to eat really good food, but tend to be lazy when it comes to hunting down recipes and sorting out the right ingredients for the respective recipes….well. You should check out Urban Stove then!
Contrary to those ‘food trucks’ and ‘food deliveries’ we get out there like Burger Bakar, Simply Sandwiches etc, Urban Stove caters for those who still WANTS to cook at home, but packing up the right amount of ingredients for each recipe given.
What Urban Stove Aims To Achieve

That’s why we aim to simplify your life by doing the heavy lifting for you when it comes to cooking – from creating recipes, running out to groceries, preparing and pre-portioning the ingredients to delivering all these to your doorstep.
What’s so different about Urban Stove?
In case you’re wondering why am I raving about Urban Stove, here are some of my reasonings (coming from one who loves to cook for others I might add!):
Fresh ingredients all the way
For every meal recipe, ingredients packed and delivered are at tip top condition with the absence of bruises and/or any ‘nasties’. These fresh ingredients are carefully selected and packed in a well-insulated box, layered generously with ice packs to ensure that nothing goes bad on delivery. I had my box for about 6 hours by the way, since I had it delivered to office first! So I can attest that the packaging is a good one 😀
The right portion
Personally, one of the many headaches of cooking for one or two is the amount of ingredients needed. I mean, it is NOT cheap buying ingredients in smaller portion than in bulk at times. For example, feel like having a bowl of cold spinach and spring onions in your omelette? Buying these ingredients would mean that you gotta buy them in a big bunch (most of the time anyway, unless you have the time to head over to a wet market and carefully select your small bunch. But even then, is it worth it traveling all the way to the market for a small bunch of leaves?) and pray you finish them all before the greens start to wilt in your fridge.
With Urban Stove, there’s definitely no worries as they pack just the right amount for a meal for two. It may look like a small amount when you first unbox the packets, but trust me, it is enough. Plus, it also means that you have a bigger room for ‘add-on’ ingredients too! 😛
Okay so you have the ingredients in hand for a meal, but what do you do next? Fear not! Urban Stove also includes recipe cards that has pretty pictures and clear instructions on what to do next. Trust me when I say it is THAT simple! The plus side is that you now have spanking great recipe cards for future cookout adventures.
Different Meals Every Week
Last but not least, Urban Stove do not serve the same meal every week! The chefs work real hard to make sure that each meal will be dished out at its finest, and well, to also make sure that you won’t get sick of the same menu every week (oh the horror!)
I am truly sorry because Impatient Me had completely forgotten to take a quick Unboxing video/photos and went straight to making one of the meals I had gotten for the week then. #ImpatientChef
All the same, have a look at one of the meals that I had taken a photo & video of: Beef Shepherd’s Pie.

This looks amazing, right? Beef shepherds pie from @urbanstove. Comes with a side salad (not pictured/videoed) Basically they provide the raw ingredients just enough for a dinner meal for two people. All you gotta do is to prep it and cook it. This was managed in less than 30 minutes! Results? Utter yums 😆😙 P/S : beef meat seems invisible in this video cause I've packed the pie a wee bit too dense that it was hard forking the meat out 😅😅😅 Tonight's dinner cost : RM26.80 #foodstagram #foodporn #foodlove #yummy #omnomnom #SilvyCooks #SilHappyDays #homemade #food #foodie

The perfect meal for two tonight : beef shepherds pie and a side salad. The best part is all raw ingredients were packaged specially for this meal, so that means I have no need to overspend on raw ingredients just to make the meal for only one night (I say this because I'm rarely home early to cook a nice meal for me and my fiancé lol). Plus it's not that expensive! It's roughly RM27.80 for this meal, which you guys know is waaaaaaay cheaper than ordering it at restaurants! Got you interested? Check out @urbanstove then! You'll love it for sure (their menu changes at every order) #foodstagram #foodporn #foodlove #yummy #omnomnom #latergram #foodie #SilvyCooks #SilHappyDays #homemade #food #western #dinner
Gotten you impressed yet?
Head over to Urban Stove then and check out what is this week’s menu!
There are always 5 different menu selection weekly, and you get to choose 3 recipes for a certain price. If you’re worried about the price, my advice is to think back on the food expenses you would fork out every week for a meal for two (family plan is still in the works for Urban Stove) and compare it to this package plan. You’ll be surprised at the amount that you’ll save 🙂
So go on, impress your loved ones with your l33t skillz in the kitchen today! 😀
