Munchery, the leading end-to-end food preparation and delivery company, recently announced that its customers in the San Francisco Bay Area now have first and only access to The Slanted Door in-home dining experience. From early August, Munchery started offering a selection of prepared dishes and cooking kits from The Slanted Door as part of an exclusive partnership with the restaurant's owner and executive chef, Charles Phan.
A James Beard Award-winner, Charles Phan is acclaimed for his contemporary Vietnamese cuisine — a fusion of traditional dishes, local farm-fresh ingredients and modern techniques. Phan opened San Francisco-based Slanted Door in 1995 and quickly earned widespread, enduring recognition for the distinct flavours and high quality of his food.
With Munchery, Chef Charles Phan is making his signature dishes available for delivery to San Francisco homes. For a limited time, Munchery's menu will feature Slanted Door favourites, including Grass-Fed Shaking Beef, Organic Claypot Chicken, Pho, Green Papaya Salad and more. Through Munchery, dishes are available for same-day delivery as ready-to-eat meals or 15-minute cooking kits.
Like many restaurants focused on quality, The Slanted Door does not offer takeout or delivery options. Meals delivered by restaurants or third-party delivery companies often arrive in a diminished state — cold, soggy, scrambled or with items missing — degrading the quality of the experience and impacting the restaurant's brand.
"Partnering with Munchery solves that problem," says Charles Phan, Executive Chef and Owner of the Slanted Door. "Munchery's e-commerce platform, as well as its expertise in fresh food production and delivery logistics, enables The Slanted Door to provide in-home dining experiences that meet our in-restaurant culinary standards. Because Munchery understands how to prepare and transport food, it's a far better solution for us than today's app-ordering and delivery options."
"For over two decades, The Slanted Door has been a well-loved Bay Area restaurant — a testament to Chef Charles Phan's imagination, culinary talents and uncompromising standards," says James Beriker, President and CEO of Munchery. "We share the same vision as Charles for making food using locally-sourced ingredients from farmers and producers who practice organic and sustainable farming — and delivering dazzling customer experiences. We are thrilled to be partnering with him to bring his amazing food to our customers."
Munchery makes and delivers fresh, healthy, all-natural meals and 15-minute cooking kits prepared by its own local chefs. Customers order online from a daily-changing menu and receive their orders by same-day local delivery or overnight shipping. Munchery controls its entire value chain, from recipe development to meal delivery.
