Rapid Delivery in the City of Perth

It is pretty lovely to work in the city. Perth CBD has really gone from strength to strength in the past few years. Kings Park continues to be spectacular and the new Elizabeth Quay draws crowds every weekend with the various events that are held there. Plus, day to day you can wander around the many, many wonderful shops at lunchtime if it takes your fancy (it too often takes mine) and on the food front, we are a very spoilt bunch. In the City of Perth there is just about every cuisine available. From fine dining to casual, every box is ticked.

But here’s what I know as someone who works in the city, sometimes days are busy. Just super, very, can’t get up from your desk busy and there’s not a lot of time to be planning what to eat and that’s on the breakfast, lunch and dinner front. Oh and snacks, can’t forget snacks! But we are lucky in the city because we have a solid offering on the rapid food delivery front. There is a lot of choice and once you’ve placed your order, all you have to do is take a brief walk from your desk to outside your building to pick it up. It’s as easy as that.

Early players in this delivery space were Menulog and Eatnow. Both websites helpfully consolidate all the restaurants that will deliver to the CBD and you can order, either through the websites or their apps. Each of them are really easy to use and there’s over 60 restaurants delivering to the city, and with a range of restaurant specials for first time orders, or multi order specials. I found that for larger team meetings they are just perfect. A delivery from Royal Seafood Chinese Restaurant in Northbridge really kept the team going for a late teleconference. You scroll through the menu, place the order and get an SMS with an approximate delivery time. Then when the delivery driver gets closer they give you a call to arrange a meeting place. Quick dash to the Terrace and the team is fed. Speedy and tasty and a few clicks later you are enjoying your fried rice.

And then there is Deliveroo, the aqua backpacked heroes you see zipping around the city on their bikes and scooters.

I was recently craving bao, as you do, and a few clicks later a delivery from What The Bao, the new addition to Shafto Lane, was on the way. Mmmm Hong Kong Char Siu Bao and Roasted Duck Bao delivered to your office in a flash. You can track the order right from the restaurant and dash down to the street when your driver arrives.

Again, it’s easy, plus if you keep an eye on the Deliveroo Facebook and Instagram pages, they often have great specials, like two for one burgers and free deliveries. It’s one to keep an eye on.

We also can’t forget UberEATS and I’ll be honest, it’s my favourite delivery service.

19055228_10154503340696456_4216274325225427989_o

They have the widest range of cafes and restaurants on offer and you place the order and know exactly who is heading your way. You can keep an eye on them as they make their way to you along St Georges Terrace.

And UberEATS kicks off early, so if you have an early meeting or call then you are going to want, nay, need breakfast, so have a look and you’ll soon discover many delicious breakfast options. As did I when I went a looking, one of my favourites in fact, the breakfast bruschetta from Tiisch. I had been so curious as to how delivered eggs would go, and coffees for that matter. I tested the theory and was entirely delighted with the results. The poached egg was delicious and the driver ensured that the delivery was speedy so things that were still meant to be warm were. So it was a very big tick for me.

19142995_10154503336791456_7990431391035392106_o19054956_10154503340281456_1507445770213162196_o19095349_10154503339261456_1801638801056027095_o

So there’s the convenience factor, both when you are busy and also when it’s a little rainy out. It’s on those days I’m all the more appreciative for the great work of delivery drivers. Like getting pho from Urban Bowl, practically brought right to your desk, how entirely luxurious! Noods for days!

19024894_10154503339916456_472360652786814382_o18954772_10154503340501456_2729603330810837074_o19055440_10154503340331456_6791861041494692821_o

Or if you really want a great burger from Meet & Bun, but no time for a walk down to Trinity Arcade, then you can literally get one of them delivered to you.

19025177_10154503335721456_1126205012447152408_o19095473_10154503335916456_8299197870452529957_o18954943_10154503335781456_2036323470661808542_o

You’ve got your three meals a day covered, but how entirely spoilt we all are in the city that should a mid-afternoon craving hit…say pretzels (Pretzel Perth) or gelato (Chicho Gelato or Gusto Gelato) or donuts, they are just an app order away too! You want a donut, you can have a donut especially now we have two Mary Street Bakeries in the CBD. I’m particularly partial to the lemon maple pecan donut. So good!

19023662_10154503335606456_3328212223829653358_o19025241_10154503336446456_9029139977915485412_o

It’s definitely something to keep in mind, next time you are hungry and pressed for time. There are options aplenty and they are all super speedy and delicious! Tap, tap, food!
