Who doesn’t love their comfort zone? One of the most coveted comfort zones is having just the kind of food you want, whenever you want it, and wherever you want it. And the city’s food delivery landscape is evolving every day to make sure we get to enjoy just that!
Coming a long way from the generic Chinese, Indian, Pizza and Burger deliveries, food delivery outlets are curating specialised menus and trying their best to have us spoilt for choice. They seem to follow the ‘you name it, we’ve got it’ motto rather religiously. And we don’t want them to stop anytime soon!
Gourmet food, healthy grub, quick bites, late night cravings, desserts, juices…it might take a while to get you acquainted with ALL kinds of food delivery outlets serving Delhi. Meanwhile, we do have a few outlets, which have a smiley drawn in front of their names in our secret diary, whose treats we’d like to share with you!
A game changer in Delhi’s food delivery business, Asian Haus was one of the first to realise the importance of end-to-end experience in the field. The dishes were no longer plopped in uniform plastic containers, they were instead safely packed as required for each separate dish, ensuring there are no leaks or breaks. Not just the presentation, they make sure their food too puts a smile on your face every time! Having perfected the art of combining Indian tastes with authentic Pan-Asian cuisine, they make sure your taste buds relish the authentic flavours, but aren’t too alien for your palate at the same time. Their Baby Pak Choy is everyone’s baby, the Spicy Basil Minced Chicken is our very own go-to dish and the Prawn Har Gau & Thai Red Curry are all time specials. Accompany these with Japanese Fried Rice and Cantonese Noodles, or go for the Hawker Rice & Noodles for that Indian zest!

Accio Sushi! Haven’t we all prayed for such a spell to exist? It looks like the Asian Haus guys heard our prayers and gifted us Sushi Haus! Taking on from Asian Haus, they decided to extend their magic with Sushi. As the city’s Sushi trend turned into a classic choice over time, Sushi-at-your-doorstep was definitely the need of the hour, and our trusted Haus stepped in. They send over the little love rolls (Sushi, duh!) in cute boxes, and you can taste the freshness of the ingredients as soon as you pop one in your mouth. We love their variety- Nigiri, Maki, Sashimi & Signature Rolls; they have a whole lot of vegetarian options too, and a separate healthy menu as well! Our all-time-Sushi award is shared by the Ebi Maki, the Crunchy Spicy Tuna Roll and the Edamame California Roll, though experimenting across their menu makes us happiest!

I Am The One Who Knocks. And knock they do, not just on your door, but Baking Bad knocks over your tastes too! Spreading some eternal pizza love across Delhi (and soon Gurgaon too), these guys happily serve your favourite disc-shaped delights day and night. You can make your own pizza, taking your pick from their gazillion toppings, or go for any of the classics, or of course go the DSSC way and order both. Not too hungry but need that yum in the tum? You don’t have to ask for a whole pizza, they deliver slices too! To make your pizza adventures more fun, Baking Bad whips up some finger-licking sliders & sides – add that bacon jam to your list! They’ve surely spent a lot of time in the lab with the Heinsberg, it being the city’s best-loved pizza! ‘Honey, It’s Bacon!’ is another regular for us, just the same exploring the world of make-your-own pizza is always a good choice.

Life is incomplete without dessert, and so would be this round-up of our fave delivery outlets. Minus 30 is made with much love, with a lot of thought behind each flavour, and the artisan ice creams are free of any artificial ingredients. At the DSSC headquarters often one of us is found sneaking a bite or two of the Bailey’s or Dark Chocolate & Peanut Butter flavours. Taking innovation seriously, Minus 30 guys will gladly whip up sugar-free & lactose-free versions for you, they also offer to create a special flavour just for you-if you have one in mind and, if you’re hosting they’ll help pair up flavours with your food menu. Cherry on the sundae, these are healthy variants, so no whoop for two scoops! Did someone say ice cream heaven? We can’t wait for them to smile at our door again!
