Online supermarket delivery

rewe

Coming from the UK, I love doing my supermarket shopping online (offered by all the big British supermarkets). So I’m very excited to see Rewe is offering online shopping and delivery here in Bielefeld for orders over 40 euros. The prices are same as in the store, and the online selection has just about everything I usually buy. The first three deliveries are free and after that’s it’s between 2 – 7 euros depending on delivery time. At the moment though all delivery slots are only 1 euro. They offer two hour slots to choose from and delivery up to 9 pm in the evening and also on Saturdays. Stairs are no problem. You change and add things to your order until the day before.  I look forward to trying this out and having my shopping appear in my kitchen! I will report back soon.

UPDATE: My order was easy to complete on-line and turned up on time. Frozen goods were still frozen too. I will definately continue to use them for my weekly shop.

Everybody loves lasagna….

Italian food is loved everywhere, and no matter where you go in the world, there should still be a spot to get great, inexpensive Italian food.  For us, the Bielefeld branch of great Italian is the Spaghetti Haus!

Our favorite here is the ‘lasagne classico’, but everything is good!  It’s inexpensive too, and the portions are large enough for us to take half home and eat it the next day (that’s definitely not a normal thing to do in Germany, and they might look at you strange for asking for a box, but I can’t help it!  Some American habits die hard…)  The restaurant is located right in the city center (Mauerstr. 13, 33602), you can check them out and even order on their website: http://www.spaghettihausbielefeld.de/  and they even deliver!

One more perk….fluency in German is not required, because lasagna is universal!

Buon Appetito!
