Top 5 Occasions To Call For Food Delivery

For starters, why do we call for delivery? Why spend money on delivery? Why not just cook for yourself or for the whole household?
My thoughts revolve on this: maybe because they are craving for food that cannot be found in your fridge or cannot be made by someone in your household.
People may crave different cuisines and different restaurants that may be far from where you are currently living in. You may be a great chef, but too tired to even cook for yourself when you get home from work. You may be too busy working that you have just dined out or take out or ask for delivery. Surely, the last choice would be your solution.
Here’s to share some occasions to call for food delivery:
Just too tired

Too tired to function

Your job exhausts you and you cannot think of any other thing besides sleeping every time you get home. The work load drains you yet it drives you hungry. Why bother cooking if you can just have a delivery?

Discounts / Promos

Some of the online delivery transactions have started to give out discounts or promos to cater your cravings. Some even have free deliveries or promos like buy 1 take 1 and sometimes cost cheaper than going to the resto yourself!

You have a movie date or binge-watch some series at your place.

When your partner is coming over for a movie date or to marathon a series that you are both watching, you have to have food. Cooking maybe a good way to spend some quality time with your partner yet it consumes time. So instead of tiring yourselves, just call for delivery! You won’t have to pause for hours, just for a few moments when your food has been delivered and you need to receive it.

You have friends coming over at your place.

Having friends come over is one happy event! Preparing food for your friends surely makes someone happy because you feel great whenever they eat what you made. But, have you ever thought of having various cuisines while with your friends? People have dissimilarities and with food, some are just picky because of reasons (e.g. diet) that some get ridiculed. To stop yourselves from arguing over on what should you eat because you all like different food, have yourselves order your food from different restaurants!

You intensely crave for other cuisines. 

Ah yes! The ultimate occasion, intense craving for a certain cuisine. We all like our native cuisine, but sometimes our taste buds look for another cuisine outside of what we have. We think of Japanese (tonkatsu, gyoza, sushi, etc) or Chinese (dimsum, noodles, etc) or American (burgers, burgers, burgers!) or another. As an ordinary person living in this world, you can never learn how to make all of those at once! And for how long will you be craving those? So instead of thinking of making one, why not just have them delivered?

I have a solution for you!

    Those reasons are the same as with the too tired to function and discounts and promo as the Top 2. I love the promos at Food Panda but had a few troubles with the delivery on my last orders. I don’t know whether it’s on Food Panda’s side or the Merchant’s side.

      Sometimes it’s on the side of the merchant yet some on Foodpanda. Nevertheless, they always strive to satisfy us with their service. 🙂

    Delivery food is my sin. Mostly it’s because I’m too lazy but also what I order is something more complicated than what I can do or find out there. Using deliveroo it works the same as Foodpanda. I just pick a restaurant and get delivered by a guy who pick the meal for me. It’s also some type of food I’m feeling to have at the moment, like mexican or vietnamese. But in other cases, ordering food when having friends, pizza of course, or being on a lazy sunday, getting delivered and eating in front of series is also very good reason !

    Those are all very good reasons! I have never heard of foodpanda but the concept sounds similar to deliveroo (I got my boyfriend addicted to it, what can I say!) So when he orders food, I order a desert or a milkshake (don’t judge haha).

    I absolutely agree with everything you wrote. I could recall when I was still studying that I didn’t have time to prepare food. Thus, I usually resort to food delivery. Too bad, Food Panda wasn’t in business during that time. If it did, I would have usually ordered from them. Our current house isn’t in an accessible place so it’s really difficult to have food delivered so I miss food delivery.

    Absolutely correct with all the reasons 🙂 I would order food online without any reason too you know :p
    But more often than not, I would order online when I am too lazy to do anything… not tired, but lazy.. hahaha.. great read 🙂

    Food delivery is great on some occasions like those mentioned. But it is better not to use it all the time. I prefer cooking at home since it helps me enjoy the food even more. Nevertheless, food delivery can be helpful but only from time to time.

    fast forward to 2018 and now we see not just restaurant food being delivered but as well as groceries via honestbee, cooked meal plans via diet diva and other diet delivery services and basically anything and everything because there are also grab express, lalamove and angkas! Wow, now I wonder… will boyfriends or girlfriends for rent be delivered in the next years? hahaha It was just a random thought… I do realize though that it is because of these reasons you stated why the delivery service business is booming recently…
