  • Browse from our list of @Home Grubs and click on any grub category that interests you.
  • You will see a list of all the chefs located near you who are making that grub in their home kitchens.
  • Click on the Chef's avatar to enter their kitchen and get more details on their grub.
  • When ready to order, just click on the green "Place Order" button and select items from their menu.

 

While in the chef's kitchen, if you do not see a green "Place Order" button, this means the kitchen is currently closed and not accepting any orders.

Additionally, you can also determine if the kitchen is opened or closed by a green dot located on top of the chef's avatar. This is called the chef's online-indicator. If the green dot is present, this means the chef is online - kitchen is open and accepting orders. The absent of a green dot means the chef is offline - kitchen is closed and not accepting orders.
