1. Deliveroo

Deliveroo  just turned one year old, and they’re not resting on their laurels. In fact, Deliveroo is doing its part for the environment by introducing deliveries with bicycles.

8. The Foodist

Want to go to that new restaurant but don’t want to fully commit? The Foodist gives you the option to order a tasting box with popular menu items for you to try out. One current example is from Candlenut with their beef cheek rendang set that offers three courses of wild caught baby squid salad, 1824 grain-fed beef cheek rendang, grilled king tiger prawn curry with Thai Hom Mali jasmine rice and sambal belachan. However, The Foodist does not work like a typical delivery service. You have order 2 days in advance and there are limited restaurants and menus to choose from. However, it’s still perfect for those that want to go gourmet.
