Luus Muus (or Loose Moose in English) is a family centre and café located in Egg near Zurich run by Nadia Mills. Since the beginning of Lockdown they have introduced a new takeaway and (free) home delivery service to their repertoire. It has proved so popular that even though the restrictions are easing in Switzerland regarding cafés and restaurants, Luus Muus have decided to keep these popular offerings in place.

Nadia explained that unlike most takeaway and delivery services, Luus Muus is different in that they don’t actually cook the meal, but prepare it all in advance and then you simply pop it in the oven once you are ready. It means a bit more flexibility as there isn’t the stress of picking up or having a delivery at a certain time, and most of all it means that it won’t be a “hot takeaway gone cold” when it arrives!
We tried it out the other day and picked up our huge box of goodies to take home. We were four people and had ordered 1 x burger and beer box, 1 x pizza, 1 x breadsticks and 1 x Lunch box. It was absolutely more than enough for four adults as the Lunch Box came with a whole load of goodies including soups, quiches, salads, cupcakes, mini pizzas and a litre of apple juice. Coupled with the burger box and pizza we had an absolute feast!
We popped everything that needed cooking in the oven and set up the table whilst it was cooking. Then we all enjoyed a lovely array of freshly prepared food without the hassle of having to prepare it all ourselves. We cooked the breadsticks first and ate them as we laid the table and got ready and they were absolutely delicious – they are like garlic bread and very moreish! Once we had devoured those, everything else was ready and we sat down and enjoyed it all.
Everything had arrived beautifully prepared in boxes, with glass rather than plastic jars for the salads and soups and with instructions as to what temperature was required for each dish and for how long it needed to be cooked. There was a friendly welcome message (along with a reminder to wash ones hands and a cute little bottle of hand sanitiser – very appropriate for current times) and it all came beautifully wrapped like a present – simply perfect !
As well as lunch boxes and pizzas and burgers, Luus Muus also offers Brunch boxes and lots more. You can see their takeaway offerings (along with all the ingredients for allergy information etc) on their website.
So if you’d like to treat yourself to a fully prepared meal why not order a lunch, pizza or brunch box and enjoy relaxing over a freshly prepared meal that you didn’t have to spend hours preparing yourself! They also make excellent presents if you’d like to give someone a gift too.
