Monika & Irena

Stars see reviews...

Hello, we're Irena and Monika! We're mother and daughter, both passionate about food and learning from each other how to make a tasty meal even more tasty.

Irena had a catering business in her native Poland. She excels in more traditional cuisine, especially Polish. Monika is engaged in food industry professionally, from a market research perspective, and brings more international flavour to her cooking.

We might alter classic recipes and replace some ingredients with quality products from Poland to achieve a unique taste, but we will mention it in the meal descriptions. We will be introducing less known traditional Polish dishes, too, with or without a modern twist! Unusual, flavoursome soups are one of our specialities.

We hope that you will enjoy our cooking. Please provide us with your special requests, if you have any. Your feedback is always welcome. After all, we are here to please your taste buds! Nothing other, nothing less.

My Reviews

Pasta bake may not be the the most exciting dish but this was really tasty and the greek salad was gorgeous. Ribs a tad over cooked for my liking but good. Many thanks - Andrew, W4
What an amazing service! Deliciously fresh, lovely guy who delivered it STILL WARM! I shall definitely be using Housebites again. - Hannah, W13
Enjoyed the meal. Had the oven on so we could make it piping hot and we really enjoyed it. I am sure we will use the service again. Lois & Gerald - Lois, SW14
Meal arrived on time. Portions were as expected and tasty. However there was no bread with the soup, and no parsnips or mushrooms with the vegetables accompanying the chicken. All of these items were listed on the menu. If I were to order again I would want to be sure that the food delivered would match the description on the menu from which I was ordering. - Sylvia, W4
Arrived promptly, good portions, and most importantly, very tasty. Would definitely order again. Thanks. - carl, W3
Soup - absolutely delicious. Beautifully cooked - potatoes still had bite - could eat it all night long - perfect quantity. Potato dumplings delicious with the zingy sweet onions and little garnish makes it well presented. Amazing comfort food. 10/10 - Kara
I loved that Monika and Irena are working as a family team, and obviously cooking recipes from their past, thing that I assume Monika grew up on like the delicious fried dumplings with sweet crispy burned onions that I had followed by their take on the traditional goulash with peppers, I had a huge portion with rice and they even threw in some pickles for me to munch on. Monika even bought the food round to my house herself which I thought was a really nice touch, and I look forward to seeing her the next time I cant be bothered to cook after a long day at work. - William
