Working from home? Here are 10 places to order delivery from and/or takeaway.
The outbreak of the coronavirus has certainly had an impact on the way we dine out, but that doesn’t mean that we all have to be holed up at home eating canned soups and boxed mac ‘n’ cheese. With grocery shelves empty and the restaurant industry one of the hardest hit sectors, now’s a crucial time to support your local favourite restaurants by ordering delivery, takeout, or even cash vouchers.
While everyone is practising social distancing and working from home, the food delivery industry is at least on the upswing, with more restaurants offering special deals and menus so you can enjoy your favourite dishes at home — all with the proper hygiene and safety measures in place, of course. Until it’s safe again to dine in social settings, here are 10 restaurants supplying everything from takeaway to home meal kits.
Everyone’s favourite steak-frites bistro brings the quintessential Parisian experience straight to your doorstep, offering steak sandwiches and fries delivery for lunch for the very first time.

Just in time to cater to hungry home workers, Sichuan hotspot Chilli Fagara has launched a delivery-only concept, Hot ‘n’ Meen, serving up all things noodles.
