5 food delivery apps for the hungry, the busy or the lazy
Everyone has those days – when you find yourself stuck at a desk, staring at a screen, moving from deadline to deadline. I call those weekdays. Or, on the other hand, you’re at home and would rather just stay in bed, leave the car keys hanging where they are, and the front door closed. They’re called weekends.
Whatever the case, even the busiest or most fatigued of us need to eat and because scientists have yet to create the dehydrated pizza from Back to the Future II we’ve had to find alternatives to get fed.
Thankfully, the world is full of like-minded individuals and some of them are enterprising enough to partake in successful ventures so that the rest of us don’t have to. So the next time your belly rumbles but you just can’t go out for food, use one of these apps and let the food come to you.
Almost everyone has heard of Foodpanda, and most have either used it or know someone who has. With a massive clientele of restaurants at its disposal, foodpanda lets you order a dish, a meal and even a feast delivered to any place of your choice. Available on iOS and Android.
Let it not be said that KLites and Selangorians don't write about anything outside the Klang Valley. DeliverEat was developed by Penangites for Penang and does as its name suggests – it Delivers to most of the island and some parts of Prai, where you get to Eat. Available on iOS and Android.
Foodamatters isn’t just a delivery service that specialises in nutritious food, it’s a cook and deliver service that specialises in nutritious food. The subscription based service takes their premise seriously as the full nutritional values are clearly stated for every meal. Available on iOS and Android.
Similar to Foodmatter, Dahmakan is a nutritous cook and deliver service with one distinction - it isn't subscription based. Browse through a diverse menu, pick and pay for the dish or dishes of your choosing as and when you want. Then, just wait for your meal. Available on iOS and Android.
A slight departure from the other apps, iHerb isn’t strictly a food delivery service but it is a shipping service for a massive catalogue of health conscious vitamins, supplements, and groceries. The app gives you access to health boosting items not easily available locally. Available on iOS and Android.
Food delivery can be great, but sometimes, you just have to physically be at a place to feel its magic; like these 5 sushi bars.
