[ultimate_spacer height=”30″][vc_single_image image=”6281″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” onclick=”link_image”] Dinnerly Australia was launched in March 2018 as an alternative meal box service that we can all afford. The company has stripped out costs, but has good supply chain model where they deliver fast and on time. I ordered my box to arrive before 7am, which did arrive on time with all ingredients! I decided to order early as I wanted to put my ingredients in the fridge before I left for work.[ultimate_spacer height=”10″] What impressed me the most about Dinnerly is their flavour & simple recipesDinnerly Australia offers easy to cook and delicious meals that you can cook in around 30 minutes. All recipes are only 6 steps and very easy to follow. I tried three of their meals, Malaysian Chicken Curry, Indonesian Tofu Stir-Fry and Cheesy Caribbean Black Beans which were all super delicious!!

2. Dinnerly vs Marley Spoon: Flexibility 

If having a greater flexibility is important, then Marley Spoon is the winner. Marley Spoon provides 2, 3, 4 & 5 meals per week for a couple or family (4), while Dinnerly provides weekly 3, 4 & 5 meals. So if you are couple, then Marley Spoon is the one to choose. Marley Spoon also offers largest selection of weekly recipes of 27 to choose from, while Dinnerly offers 20 weekly recipes to choose from. In comparison, HelloFresh offers 18 and EveryPlate only 8. So, if you have children or fussy eater in your family, then I would definitely recommend Marley Spoon.

3. Dinnerly vs Marley Spoon: Meal Quality Comparison

If quality is important to you, then I strongly recommend Marley Spoon Australia. Compared to other meal boxes, Marley Spoon offers more exotic feel to their recipes and packaging. Many customers have expressed that they enjoyed eating Marley Spoon recipes which are designed around seasonal fresh ingredients. Marley Spoon meals are delicious and great way to get back into cooking and enjoy gourmet meals. This is not to down play the quality of Dinnerly Australia, but you will definitely get more ingredients in Marley Spoon meals. One of our recommendation we have made for Dinnerly, is that you add extra serve of vegetables as per recommendation made by the  Department of Health and National Health and Medical Research Council (make vegetables take up at least one third of meals and half the meal if you are trying to lose weight).[ultimate_spacer height=”30″]

My Cooking with Dinnerly

First, let’s check out my cooking experience with Dinnerly. I’m going to share with you Indonesian Tofu Stir-Fry I cooked with Dinnerly. Also, just a quick but important reminder that all Meal Boxes will require you to have essential pantry items such as flours and cooking oils for any meal box services (these are always mentioned in your recipe card).[ultimate_spacer height=”30″][vc_single_image image=”4500″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” onclick=”link_image”][ultimate_spacer height=”30″]

[vc_column_text]If you like gado-gado (Indonesian popular meal), then this Indonesian Tofu Stir-Fry is perfect for you! This vibrant stir-fry ditches the heavy sauce and instead uses roasted peanuts and satay tofu for a quick, flavoursome dinner.

My Cooking with Marley Spoon

Next, I’m going to share my cooking experience with Marley Spoon, Chimichurri Minute Steaks with Wedges and Baguette Toast.

We cooked Chimichurri, thin beef steaks served with an uncooked condiment of chopped herbs, chilli, garlic, vinegar and oil, evolved in meat-loving Argentina among ex-pat Basques. Endlessly versatile, it can be used as a marinade, sauce or even brushed on bread for grilling!![/vc_column_text]

[vc_column_text]I must say that cooking process was really simple to follow. All you had to do was prep the veggies, cook or bake them and plate it all together! What I enjoyed most about cooking Marley Spoon was trying out different spices and ingredients. This was my first time cooking Argentinian or Chimichurri spice, which was super delicious. The meal looked just like the recipe card and tasted like I was eating at local restaurant.[/vc_column_text]

[ultimate_spacer height=”30″]



As you can see from the comparison above, Marley Spoon offers more exotic ingredients for you to enjoy the meal (e.g. steak with side dishes like Wedges and Baguette), where the price difference between the two starts to show. Dinnerly on other hand offers more simple single dish. In the end, I recommend that you make your decision based on two key findings from this review:

  • Cost: In the long run, Dinnerly Australia will save you money. If you are thinking about committing to a meal box service more than two weeks and is budget conscious, then Dinnerly Australia is one to choose. But remember, you will get less recipe options and ingredients (e.g. vegetables) compared to Marley Spoon.
  • Quality: If you want to use wide range of ingredients and enjoy cooking exotic meals, then choose Marley Spoon Australia. Not only you get more options with meal box sizes, you get to choose from over 20 recipes per week! Using our exclusive discount, you will only pay $43.95 (2 people x 3 meals – Code: C3F15EEVIE10F) for your first box which makes it as cheap as Dinnerly to try the box. This will be perfect as you can experience high quality meal box and decide if you want to continue or not.
