It’s been a long day, you’re exhausted, you have piles of laundry and kid’s homework waiting for you at home. Oh and don’t forget about dinner! Before you pull in for another McDrive Thru, meet Fresh Gourmet Takeaway.
Since 2007, Fresh Gourmet Takeaway has been providing healthy meals in a hurry. Originally opening as Sensational Suppers, they rebranded in August 2008 to today’s Fresh Gourmet Takeaway. Busy people can stop by to pick up a healthy, balanced meal for themselves or for their family. There are two types of meals available: fresh, whole meals that just need to be popped in the oven, single portion cooked frozen meals or family-size frozen meals. The full meals include the main entree, as well as a pasta, rice or mixed vegetable accompaniment. These complete meals feed a family of 4-6, or can be split to accommodate smaller families. Every meal is neatly packaged with clear, easy-to-follow instructions for preparation. An a la carte menu is also available, for great party food, soups, sauces and desserts. It’s so convenient, so healthy, so tasty!
The menus make you hungry just looking at them. We opted for the Amazing Chicken and it was, indeed, amazing. Teriyaki Pork Chops w/ Mango Salsa, Lemon Sesame Glazed Prawns, Espresso Bourbon Steaks – it all sounds delicious! Owner Donna Nicks and her team prepare new tasty creations every month (check out the February menu), but some customer favourites, such as the mini meatloaves with mashed potatoes (below) are always available.
Donna’s background is in pharmaceutical sales, specifically within the diabetes field. She is an advocate for healthy eating and understands how food affects one’s body. All of the meals at Fresh Gourmet Takeaway are prepared with nutritional balance in mind, and sugar/fats are kept to a minimum. Watching your weight?

February is an exciting month for Fresh Gourmet Takeaway. They have just opened the doors at their new location. It’s also Valentine’s Day this weekend, and they have put together an irresistible menu. Impress your sweetheart with 2 Espresso Bourbon Steaks, 4 mini prawn skewers, roasted asparagus, garlic mashed potatoes and 2 gourmet dessert rounds… for only $30!
While we were visiting Fresh Gourmet Takeaway, several customers were coming by to pick up a few week’s worth of pre-ordered dinners. If you’re even too busy to visit, delivery service is available throughout the Fraser Valley for a nominal fee. Fresh food to your doorstep, what could be better? Fresh Gourmet Takeaway is an approved supplier to Veteran Affairs, and regularly delivers to retirement communities, busy professionals and new parents. Gift certificates are available in any denomination.
As one customer happily told us, “My family would starve without this place!” And there you have it! Stop by sometime soon to see all they have to offer.
Fresh Gourmet Takeaway is open Tuesday to Friday, 10AM – 6PM and Saturday 11AM – 5PM.
