7 healthy food delivery services in KL & Selangor
EatDrink’s KL-based Penang-ite, Melissa Cheah, takes a look at seven healthy options for food in Klang Valley.
Yes, we know – preparing a clean and balanced meal is easier said than done. The attempt to do so is noble, but to many, the novelty wears off, especially during the weekdays, due to the hectic and fast-paced lifestyle in the city.
The lone days of fast food delivery have been eclipsed by a new contender – healthy, wholesome food deliveries right to your doorstep for lunch and dinner.
Something to note is that most clean eating sites require you to pre-order your meals the day before to guarantee the freshness of the food. So, simply visit any of the sites the day before, peruse through the mouthwatering menu, take your pick and pay either beforehand or when it arrives.
Check out the list below for some of the most popular food delivery services around:
1. Dah Makan
We browsed through the menu and before long, we were drooling. You’d be spoilt for choices with the extensive menu as Dah Makan creates healthy gourmet meals that are crafted with the freshest ingredients. Helming the kitchen is Executive Chef Shamsul Hashim, whose previous affiliations include the prestigious Sheraton Imperial and Hilton. Another plus point, the dishes are yummy and MSG-free.
The prices listed on the site are all-inclusive – delivery is free, there are no further service or admin costs with GST charges factored in.
Delivery area: Kuala Lumpur. You can check out their website for a map of their delivery area

2. Chopstick Diner
Delivering their food in take-out boxes and chopsticks (hence the name), their salad-focused menu starts from as low as RM15. If you’re not a big fan of salads, take them up on their half-and-half option where you get to choose a smaller salad portion and a choice of Vietnamese Spring Rolls or Pad Thai Zoodles – Zoodles are zucchinis that have passed through a spiralizer and made to resemble noodles, minus the carbs. To end your meal on a sweet note, select a bottle of fresh juice just before checking out.
Chopstick Diner offers free delivery for orders above RM50 made by 10pm the day before..
Delivery area: Free delivery for orders above RM50 to Petaling Jaya (Postcode 46000-46200 excluding Sunway area), Kuala Lumpur City Centre, Mont Kiara, Sri Hartamas, Mid Valley, Bangsar, Bangsar South, Sentral, Damansara Heights, Taman Desa. Additional delivery charges may apply for deliveries outside these areas.

This eatery-cum-delivery service was founded on one simple idea: Great food shouldn’t be that hard to come by. They’ve taken this idea, created a community around it and their menu selection appeals to those with a more localised tastebud. Dishes like ‘Vegan Nasi Lemak with Mixed Quinoa’ and ‘Vegan Pumpkin Cashew Laksa’ are proof that you do not have to give up your favourite food in the name of health.
Yumcious only serves lunch for the time being and delivers to KL, major parts of Klang Valley and PJ. There’s a minimum order of RM15 and for orders under RM100, there will be 15% service fee imposed.

4. Dietliciouss Delivery
A newbie in the food delivery business, the team is anything but inexperienced. They started out as a home-based business and now receive orders for more than 100 boxes a day. There are two types of meals to choose from – Daily lunch delivery and frozen skinny meals to stock your freezer with. If you are on a clean eating day diet, do opt for their overnight oats for breakfast and supplement your lunch plan with a jar of invigorating infused water.
Psst, if you are a mum-to-be or you are a friend to one, this innovative shop does confinement meal packages as well.

Apart from the nutritional value and delicious tasting food, we’ve also taken to their minimalist lunch boxes.

Their meal plans are fully organic, meat-free and without any genetically modified ingredients. The programs are catered for 1, 3, or 5 days and consist of breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their snacks and desserts are decadent yet guilt-free. We personally love the Chia Coconut Porridge and Amazing Parfait.
