When you think of a TV dinner, what comes to mind? Meals in an aluminum tray? A 1950s sitcom family sitting together on their couch, basking in the glow of their television? Or perhaps your own childhood with pre-packaged meals that meant a fun night in?
TV dinners actually revolutionized dinner as we know it — and National TV Dinner Day (going down on September 10) is your chance to celebrate the phenomenon.
To keep the celebration alive (slash redefine the traditional TV dinner experience), DoorDash, alongside restaurant partners PLANTA and Fresh, is bringing an elevated TV dining experience to Toronto homes this weekend only.
Toronto restaurants PLANTA and Fresh recreated the traditional TV dinner from some of their existing, iconic menu items. From PLANTA, the go-to destination for plant-based cuisine, you’ll find "The PLANTA TV Dinner." The menu item consists of a small Caesar Salad, Hawaiian Pizza and a Chocolate Chip Cookie or the Bang Bang Broccoli, Unagi Eggplant Press Torch Sushi and Sorbet, from the Yorkville and Queen locations respectively.
The vegan haven, Fresh, has everything your palate could dream of, and for National TV Dinner Day, they’re offering Quinoa Onion Rings, a large Beach Bowl on Rice or Soba Noodles, a Chocolate Chip Cookie and Tonica Kombucha. Look for the menu item "The Fresh TV Dinner."
From September 10 to 13, order the TV Dinner from PLANTA and Fresh restaurants in Toronto on DoorDash and you’ll get $10 off your meal with promo code TVDINNERS (terms apply). Because, as we all know, the only thing better than not having to cook and do the dishes is not having to do either while saving money.
TV Dinners aren't your thing? DoorDash is also offering $0 delivery across both restaurants’ Toronto locations all weekend long.
No matter what you order, you can count on one thing: your definition of TV dinners will never be the same.
