With food being sold on virtually every street corner, it’s hard to imaging that Food Delivery is also popular in Bangkok. It is not just popular but a way of life and a massive business with liveried motor-bike drivers screaming around the city to make their deliveries!
Food delivery comes in many forms. Both the large supermarkets and smaller specialised stores offer food delivery of both non-cooked and cooked produce. You place your order on-line and most will deliver the same day.
However it is with cooked food that Bangkok is a market champion. Starting with the ubiquitous McDonalds, KFC, Pizzas and Sushi chains who offer quick and reliable delivery to your hotel room, condo or house.
There are also large, International and local food delivery companies that have 100’s of restaurants on their system, you order the food from your favourite restaurant and they will deliver it to you with no fuss and with minimal charges.
However it is with the smaller, specialised food delivery where Bangkok excels with quality, price and efficiency (as long as there is no storm). Many cook the meals specially to order and take great care in the presentation and quality of the produce.
You can order virtually any Thai or International dish from some suppliers and within the hour, the driver is ringing your door-bell.
New companies are popping up with highly innovative products and services. Some are also becoming highly environmentally friendly by not using any plastic utilising re-usable glass mason jars, bamboo cutlery and re-cycled paper bags.
The lunch time trade is busy with deliveries to offices but at night all the deliveries are heading towards the condo buildings. All condos have modern kitchens but after a long, hot day, many people just prefer to call in!
What ever you want in Bangkok and almost at any time, your meal at home or the office is just a telephone call or better still a few clicks on an App!
