Netflix and Chilli: Food Pairings for Your Favourite TV Show

Netflix and chilli: the food to eat with your favourite TV shows

Have you got a GoT-shaped hole in your life after the summer? We're here to give you some night in goals. Here's some of the must-see TV that the Deliveroo team are staying in for, and some delicious food pairings inspired by the series we just can't wait to watch.

Warning: possibility of really mild spoilers ahead if you've never watched any of these shows before.

Stranger Things + Moose Waffles from Moose Breakfast and Brunch, Liverpool

Stranger Things season two is almost here! Because everyone can relate to the way Eleven feels about Eggos, channel your favourite psychokinetic and tuck into a plate of warm, fluffy waffles from Moose Breakfast and Brunch. Apart from the lashings of Canadian maple syrup and toppings like streaky bacon, smoked chicken or vanilla ice cream, the best thing about these waffles is you don't need to go raiding a supermarket freezer to get some, we'll bring them to you for your next Netflix binge.

The Crown + Venison Scotch Egg from Mac & Wild, London

Season two of the royal drama is back on our screens in December. So when you want to go all out on a Balmoral style banquet fit for Liz and Phil, we'll bring Mac & Wild to you. You could kick off episode one with a few Wee Bites, like an oozy Venison Scotch Egg and Haggis Pops, then follow it up with a Veni-moo burger for the crowning glory of your night in.

Strictly Come Dancing + Salsa Roja from Tortilla, nationwide

If you like your salsa a fair bit hotter than Ed Balls doing a latin number, the next time you settle in for Strictly, get stuck into some Salsa Roja from Tortilla. It's the perfect partner for a Naked Burrito or a bag of chips. And if you need more dynamic food duos to inspire your Saturday nights in, check out these winning partnerships that are guaranteed a glitterball trophy.

Narcos + Assorted Basket of Empanadas from Vivo Latino, Cardiff

Have you been putting a weekend aside to binge watch Narcos season three? Because you won't want to miss a minute of Peña pursuing a new cartel, you'll need to order in. So why not channel all the flavours of Colombia with an Assorted Basket of Empanadas to share from Vivo Latino? These crispy little parcels are packed with feta and tomato, shrimp and plantain and pulled beef so when you just can't say no to one more episode, you've got plenty of empanadas to keep you going.

Broad City + pizzas from Crust, Liverpool

Yas! Yas! Yas! Broad City is back. So get the Illana to your Abbi round, get Comedy Central on and order a pizza each from Crust. Maybe mix it up with a classic margherita and a meaty capricciosa, then live your best life with your BFF and the brand new season on the box.

Doctor Foster + Ice Cream Boxes from Gallone's, Royal Leamington Spa

Just like revenge, ice cream is a dish best served cold. Rather than going full Gemma and throwing the world's most awkward dinner party for the season finale, if you want a Doctor Foster themed night in, dig into an ice cream box from Gallone's instead. Plus a few scoops to yourself on the sofa will taste so much sweeter than plotting payback on your ex anyway.

BoJack Horseman + Peanut Crunch doughnuts from Doughnotts, Derby and Nottingham

BoJack's back on Netflix! Cookies for breakfast might be the answer when this guy's got a long face, but if you're cheering yourself up with the new season, how about a few doughnuts from Doughnotts instead? In a nod to BoJack's best frenemy Mr Peanutbutter, you'll have to go for the Peanut Crunch topped with mini Reese's cups.

Mindhunter + Mark' and Cheese Bites from Chosen Bun, London, Oxford and Cambridge

David Fincher's chilling new '70s FBI thriller is set to hit Netflix in October. For a series as dark as this, either watch it with the big living room lights on, or go for classic all-American comfort food like mac and cheese to put you at ease. But you don't need to rustle it up from a blue box to get something retro and cosy, go for some Mark' and Cheese Bites from Chosen Bun instead. Plus, as an added bonus, these deep-fried little balls are easy to eat if you need to hide behind the sofa cushions.

Black Mirror + Fish & Chips from The Fish and The Chip, Leicester

When you watch a series that's as twisted but scarily close to home as Black Mirror, you need something familiar to bring you back to normality. Nothing's going to tick that box quite like a plate of classic fish and chips from The Fish and The Chip. Snowy white fish, chunky chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce will be your go-to TV dinner for the new season.

Walking Dead + Spaghetti Al Pomodoro Fresco from The Italian Club Fish, Liverpool

When the Walking Dead comes back to Fox on 23rd October, you can make Mondays the new Spaghetti Tuesdays. Order in some delicious Spaghetti Al Pomodoro Fresco – just like the one from The Italian Club Fish – then switch the lights off, get the curtains drawn and don't let those walkers ruin your night in on the sofa.

Blue Planet II + Buttermilk Pancakes with Blueberry Compote from Portabello Restaurant Bar & Grill, Oxford

Duvet days were made for Blue Planet. The godfather of British TV, Sir David Attenborough is coming to our screens soon with Blue Planet II, so the next time you're feeling a bit fragile in the morning, get snuggled up on the sofa, put this awe-inspiring doc on catch-up, and get ordering a stack of Buttermilk Pancakes with Blueberry Compote, Maple Syrup and Butter from Portabello Restaurant Bar & Grill to sort you out.

Gunpowder + Gunpowder Aloo Chaat from Gunpowder, London

When you're getting your Kit Harrington fix in the explosive new series Gunpowder, you need something that's bursting with flavour. Try the Gunpowder Aloo Chaat from the show's namesake, Gunpowder. These spicy fried potatoes, topped with sweet and tangy tamarind and yoghurt, are the perfect side with a main and your new favourite Saturday night drama.

Game of Thrones + Wild Game Stroganoff Pie from Pie and Ale, Manchester

Ok, so season seven ended in August. But if you just can't wait until the next series and have started rewatching it from the very beginning, or you've heard nothing but GoT chat in the office and have decided to jump on the bandwagon, you need to get a hot pie to eat along with the show. For a proper regal dinner fit for the heir to the Iron Throne, go rich and gamey with a Wild Game Stroganoff Pie from Pie and Ale.

The next time you're settling in for a new series, we'll take care of the food. Check out what you can order from Deliveroo for your next TV marathon.
