After a long week of work, our idea of a perfect Friday night entails sweatpants, Netflix, and delicious food brought right to our door. Forget the typical pizza delivery because delivery apps have now made it possible to order food from our favourite gourmet restos. No longer do we have to get dolled up and go out on the town for our favourite eats, because they’re all right at our fingertips. Don’t get us wrong — going out to eat is fun now and then, but sometimes there’s nothing better than eating from the couch.
If you’re a fan of eating in, here are 7 of the best food delivery apps that you need to know about.
Previously named “Hurrier”, Foodora is a great option to use to get foods from your fave restaurants delivered straight to your doorstep. Just enter your address in the app and it will bring up the closest restaurants to you that you can order from. Think: Tabule, The Burger’s Priest, and Pizza Libretto, to name a few. You can even schedule your delivery up to 2 days ahead, so you can lock it in whenever you get a craving.
DoorDash connects you with popular restaurants around the city and puts your favourite dishes right at your fingertips. The “Dashers” deliver your food as quickly as they can, and the app allows you to customize every detail of your order. There’s a flat rate of $4.99 for delivery, and the app gives you a rundown of all your food options from Iruka Sushi and Wanda’s Pie in the Sky, to Mean Bao and Smoke’s Poutinerie.
Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is UberEATS you can place your order whenever you feel your stomach grumbling. Promising their customers an order time of 10 minutes or less, UberEATS is an ideal way to get your food right when you want it. Choose from some of Toronto’s favourite restaurants including Pai, Gusto 101 and La Cubana for a delivery fee that varies on how far the restaurant is from you. Just beware the surge charges on top of the delivery fee if you live in a busy area.
Skip the Dishes is a Winnipeg-based business that absorbed Just Eat and it’s become a go-to food delivery app for Torontonians. Partnered with fast food spots including Wendy’s and Popeyes, as well as restaurants like Pi Co. and Bier Markt, you can feed your cravings with the touch of a button. Some places offer free delivery if your order is large enough!
We all get major Chinese food cravings here and there. Don’t let your location stop you from indulging and just get on board the Cmeow train. This Richmond Hill specializes in Chinese food and after one look, you’ll notice that a lot of the restaurants listed are not represented by the other major delivery apps that are out there.
