New Asda tool helps shoppers create their favourite restaurant meals including Nando’s and Pizza Express


NANDO’s obsessive or Pizza Express enthusiast, now you can make all the meals from your favourite restaurants with the help of Asda’s new “fakeaway” tool.

Most restaurants have been shut since March because of the coronavirus lockdown leaving Brits unable to get hold of their favourite dishes.

You can pick any of Asda’s versions of popular restaurant meals

Now Asda has added a new tool to its website and app which lets you buy all the ingredients you need to make your favourite restaurant chain meals at home.

There’s a wide-range of meals to choose from, from beefburgers and fish and chips, to Portuguese-style piri piri roast chicken with corn and coleslaw.

There’s even Wagamama favourite, chicken katsu curry, and a Pizza-Express style roasted vegetable pizza recipe.

Asda lets you search for and pick the meal you want to cook, and it’ll then add the ingredients to your shopping list.

Make your own version of Nando’s at home with help from Asda

All the options are listed within its “recipe” section and there’s lots of other categories as well, such as Joe Wicks meals and cakes.

You can tell it how many people are eating and substitute any of the ingredients.

The recipe, plus the time it takes to cook, and the cost per serving are also listed.

Obviously if you are looking to make one of these meals, you don’t have to shop at Asda. You could find the recipe and ingredients and then add them to your basket, wherever you are shopping.

Restaurants were told to close on March 23 as part of the coronavirus lockdown.

For each meal you’ll be shown the cost per serving

While some have reopened for delivery, such as McDonald’s, KFC, and Pizza Express it’s unclear when restaurants will be open for dining.

Asda is not the first company to offer a solution for those in need of their favourite takeaway.

Last month a McDonald’s fan shared his recipe for making the chain’s chicken nuggets at home.

Pizza Express also revealed its dough ball recipe so fans could make their own at home.

While Wagamama also published the exact recipe for its chicken katsu curry.
