Z!ng is a dining option that opened earlier this year at 3241 42nd St S, Fargo. It is an app based business, which means once you download the app on your mobile device you can place your order online and your order is ready to pick up when you get there. Orders can also be placed in person or by phone (701-356-3822). If you place an order thru the app or by phone you should not have to wait for your order. If you place your order in person, the wait is usually about 5 – 10 minutes unless there are several orders.
The menu is available on Zingdinner.com, the app or in the store. The meals are cooked and packaged and in most cases you only need to warm them up once you get home. For some of the pasta dishes, the pasta will need to be cooked and added to the sauce once you get home. Most meals can be completed within 15 minutes. Menu items can be ordered in single portions or 2, 4 and 6 person portions. They use USDA guidelines for portion sizes and nutritional information can be found on the website.
I recently picked up a few meals and enjoyed the ones I tried. A couple of the meals were for an elderly couple I know. I tried the Swedish Meatball meal and it tasted great. After being warmed up it tasted fresh and homemade.
It is also a great way for smaller households to get the taste of comfort foods that are difficult to make a small amount, such as lasagna.
There are also holiday meal options available for order which are make it possible for smaller parties to have the taste of a home cooked meal without the expense and time to cook a big meal for a few people.
I would recommend Z!ng to anyone that wants a homecooked meal without the time and labor of making it yourself.
