Today, I heard the news about the first local Philly spot closing its doors due to financial strain from the current Covid quarantine. I have been so, so, so thankful for each local restaurant figuring out how to run a business right now, opening up to offer delicious food, contactless Philly delivery, and well, some sanity. Because yes, we’re all cooking a whole lot more, but some nights, you really just can’t do another dish, am I right?
Jim & I have ordered out a bit, usually getting several dishes to last us over the next few days. While pretty much everything has been good, a few spots have really stood out to us as some of the best delivery food in Philadelphia.
I am sharing tons of the food we’ve been chomping on (both cooking & from restaurants!) over on Instagram if you’re interested in following along there. And now, on to our absolute favorite Philadelphia delivery spots!
Breakfast & Lunch Delivery via Caviar (use this link to get $10 off your first two Caviar orders)
Middle Child is a sandwich-lover haven. We love the breakfast sandwiches, with fluffy, bright eggs paired with the perfect accompaniments. Do not order without getting at least one hashbrown – we spent the whole morning talking about how perfect they were.
Best order: Herschel Waker, hashbrown, & chocolate milk
Lunch & Dinner Delivery via their own website
I have loved SliCE forever, their pizza is just consistently delicious. I also love how owners Marlo & Jason are constantly trying new things (like a DIY pizza kit – perfect for kids and adults safe at home alike!) and keeping things fresh for their several SliCE locations.
Best order: the Social Distance pizza, with your choice of 4 non-touching toppings (make sure 1732 Meats pancetta is one of them)
Dinner Delivery via Caviar (use this link to get $10 off your first two Caviar orders)
I was in an “off” phase with sushi the past few years, until this order from RAW arrived at my door. Literally the most fresh ingredients, in great combinations. It just hit the damn spot, and I can’t wait to order from RAW again.
Best order: Spicy Kani Salad, Pork Belly Sumo Buns, Burning Rainbow Roll, & Spicy Volcano Roll
Chiquita’s Pizzeria & Mexican Grill
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Delivery via their own website or Grubhub
I don’t even remember how we came across Chiquita’s, but life will never be the same. Their menu is *extensive,* delivery drivers are all so kind, and the food is all fantastic. They even sent us coloring pages from a local artist with one order! Truly a spot not to be missed.
Best order: White Girl Pizza, mozzarella sticks, & chicken tinga quesadilla
Redcrest Fried Chicken
Lunch & Dinner Delivery via Caviar, UberEats, & Grubhub (use this link to get $10 off your first two Caviar orders)
Jim loves fried chicken. Redcrest was our first delivery order of quarantine (starting things off with a bang!) and it truly set the tone for delicious, fresh comfort food to help us get through. I get the tenders because I’m silly and prefer breasts over thighs, but Jim gets the whole chicken (lol) to last him days.
Best order: Chicken tenders, whole chicken, french fries, & biscuits
Let me know where you’ve been ordering from. Thanks for supporting our local restaurants, and stay safe, everyone! xx
