These restaurants doing takeaways will become your new friends.
Yes, sadly we see more of our delivery driver than our friends and family right now. But we are not complaining as these Glasgow restaurants are bringing us all the delicious food that we normally enjoy whilst dining in straight to our doors. Plus, it means we are not constantly cooking and we’re supporting local foot outlets during these difficult times. If there’s nothing in the fridge and you fancy a change then check out our guide to some of the best restaurants still delivering grub in Glasgow.
The vegan burger legends that are Biffs will still be bringing you their epic burgers, jackfruit wingz and loaded fries for home delivery. You can still get your hands on the Father Jack burger with a crispy fried jackfruit patty, their infamous bacun jam, bourbon BBQ sauce, onion rings, smoked cheeze and lettuce – all in a brioche bun. Plus , there are the Buff Wingz with buffalo hot sauce, ranch sauce, crispy shallots and spring onions. Biffs delivers across a huge area of the city including Glasgow City Centre, Merchant City, Partick, Hillhead, Woodlands, Bridgeton, Dennistoun, Port Dundas, Gorbals, Govanhill and Ibrox.
2. Trusty Bucks
Another vegan favourite in the city and you can have an array of plant-based dishes delivered to your home. You can still have quite the spread with you and your household as there’s something for everyone. From burgers to burritos, loaded fries and nachos to hot dogs plus all the sides like mac and cheese, spicy onion rings and curry fries. Plus, being at home no one has to know about the squabbling over who has the last chicken nugget.
3. Little Hoi An
Don’t fancy the same old basic meal everyday? Hang tight as Little Hoi An has got dinner covered. Whether you want plates of dumplings filled with pork and prawn or one of their signature dishes like caramelised pork belly with egg or crunchy chicken in sweet chilli sauce, the Glasgow restaurant is delivering the dinner of champions to your area. And we sure need some dumplings, and a medal, for getting through level four restrictions. You can also order salt and pepper chips and crispy veggie rolls, plus vermicelli salad bowls and coconut curries for collection between Wednesday and Saturday, 5pm to 8.30pm.
If you’ve been missing your bao bun, katsu curries and banh mi dearly, fear not. Nanika is the spot for you. Throw in some salt and chilli aubergines, spicy prawn fries and house kimchi for sides and there you have some cracking lockdown grub available to ease you through the boredom. Choose from bao buns with fillings such as pork belly; prawn tempura; black pudding; kedgeree; chicken; fried tofu and glazed tempeh, to name a few. Why not ask them about their secret buns too? These bao bun pros are always working on new and exciting flavour for you to tuck into.
They can take our lives, but they will never deprive us of curry night. Thankfully, that’s the case in Glasgow anyway. Ashoka is at our service and we are eternally grateful. If we had to go an entire lockdown without a jalfrezi or bhuna then… well, I don’t know what we’d do. But at least we won’t have to find out. They also serve up mean seafood, vegan and vegetarian curries as well as shared platters and also serve a Himalayan hot pot.
7. Baffo Pizza
If you still want a slice of the action but from your humble abode, pizza restaurant Baffo on Argyle Street is delivering some fine pizzas to your door. From Pizza Col Baffo (sugo, mozzarella, fennel sausage, prosciutto crudo, rocket, and parmesan) to Cafone Pizza (fior di latte, potato, portobello mushroom, porchetta, salsiccia piccante, and garlic oil) these woodfired pizzas will make this lockdown a little more bearable. Baffo also have pasta dishes, arancini and bruschetta available too. Plus, you can even order from a wide selection of beers and wines to well and truly complete the night in style and comfort.
While you can’t take a quick holiday to the coast right now, you can still enjoy some excellent fish and chips in the heart of the city. Hooked has a host of fried wonders available from classic cod or haddock to battered sausages and squid tempura as well as burgers. Order yourself some sides of mushy peas, pickled gherkins and curry sauce and sit in your dining or living room with the window open, and you might even catch some sea breeze, transporting you straight to the seaside. Hooked also have some exciting meat-free additions to their menu such as tofish (battered tofu), battered halloumi, veg haggis and sausages, plus aubergine fritters and cauliflower wings.
Award-winning pizza restaurant Paesano is alive and ticking for you to indulge this lockdown. Generously-topped pizzas are a good self-care method during normal times. So, you best believe it’ll work better during this period. Plus, they have 12 varieties of pizza to choose from. Order an obscenely satisfying pizza for home delivery, pop into in the oven and forgot your worries just for a moment. You can choose from a selection of alcohol to go along with their cook at homes pizzas.
Because cheese toasties are always the best medicine in a crisis. Not to mention the fact that you can also get them brownies, soups, mac and cheese and much more cheesy goodness. It’s a blessing (and maybe a curse) for anyone with even the slightest hankering for cheese. Take out the faff of making your own and buying a toastie maker by getting a delivery from Babos instead. You won’t be able to stop gorging on their generously-filled toasted sandwiches. They even serve toasties with a fried egg or baked beans inside. No, you’re drooling.
Providing comforting Thai food for us to enjoy at home (without hopelessly trying to cook up your own dish), Mamasan are offering home delivery this lockdown. Thai food fans can enjoy Mamasan’s usual offering, including curries, Pad Thai and all the sides when ordering through Deliveroo. The restaurant is also offering their One Night In boxes so you can create your own Southeast Asian food experience from home. The box includes four courses and cocktails for two people and you can order them here.
