Where to Order Food When You Have Intimate Celebrations at Home
Just because we are not allowed to leave the house doesn’t mean we should stop celebrating special occasions with the family. Together with your bubble (aka your nearest and dearest), make intimate parties memorable by ordering in. It's a more convenient option, and saves you from all the hard work in the kitchen.
Ahead, we list down suggestions of restaurants and food shops that can deliver your cravings and favorite dishes right to your doorstep. Bon appetit!
Japanese cuisine is always a good idea, what with its beautifully presented food. Party Time Philippines offers mini okonomiyaki, takoyaki, prawn tempura, teppanyaki, and a sushi bar complete with California maki, kani maki, and foto maki, as well as tuna salmon sashimi bar. They require a three-day lead time and rental of the sushi bar is good for four hours (you may want to check if this is allowed in your local quarantine guidelines).
