8 Takeaway Dishes You Need To Get You Through Isolation

By Jasmine Crittenden

You might not be able to eat in at your favourite locals during the COVID-19 lockdown, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring them into your home. In fact, they need your support and loyalty more than ever. Here are eight delightful dishes you can order takeaway and enjoy on the comfort of your couch.

Fried Chicken Ramen @ Butter

Every autumn, fried chicken fans all over Sydney await the seasonal return of Butter’s famous ramen, a bubbling cauldron of noodles, broth, enoki, shallots, crispy seaweed and egg, topped with fried chicken tenders. Be tempted to add champagne or a Belvedere blueberry sour. Order food delivery from Butter at Uber Eats 

Laksa Singapura @ Temasek

Spice things up with a bowl of piping hot laksa Singapura from Temasek. Opt for chicken, prawns, chicken and prawns, fish cake, seafood or vegetables. Temasek offers its own delivery service, which is free for the first month (up until 21 May 2020). 

Souvlaki Box @ Kouzina Greco

Who knows when we’ll be able to travel overseas again, but in the meantime, you can take a mini-trip to the Greek Islands with a souvlaki box from Kouzina Greco. Prepare to tuck into a mountain of lamb, tzatziki, pitta, and fries or salad. Add a bottle of Greek wine and, before you know it, you’ll hear the Aegean Sea lapping at your door. Order pick up or delivery from Kouzina Greco directly.

Avocado Smash @ Social Hideout

Feast your stomach and your eyes with a dish from Social Hideout, self-described as “Sydney’s prettiest cafe”. Every creation made here is an artwork, including the avocado smash — a cornucopia of poached eggs, cherry tomatoes, Danish fetta, dukkah and beetroot on sourdough. Even better, it’s just $10 during lockdown. There’s also a bunch of $5 specials, including a bacon and egg roll, a ham and cheese croissant, and umami fries. Order takeaway from Social Hideout directly.

Kevin Bacon Burger @ Milky Lane

Is all the exercise you’ve been doing in the local park making you hungry? Famish no more when a Kevin Bacon Burger lands at your door. It’s an absolute monster, packed with double char-grilled Australian beef pattie, double American cheese, double crispy maple-smoked bacon, BBQ sauce, truffle aioli, caramelised onions and pickles. Add a signature cocktail, like a strawberry and vanilla mojito, and follow up with a deep-fried Golden Gaytime. Now that’s a serious party for one.

Sushi and Sashimi Platter @ Ginza Izakaya

Make your lockdown lean, clean and colourful with a platter of sushi and sashimi from Ginza Izakaya, Parramatta’s riverside Japanese eatery. It’s made fresh daily, ensuring that only the best seasonal ingredients are involved. Go for the chef’s selection or choose your favourite flavours, from salmon and avocado, to dragon (crab meat, avocado, egg, cucumber and grilled eel).Order today at Uber Eats.

Knefeh French Toast @ Bay Vista Dessert Bar & Cafe

Sugarfy your days in isolation with a serving of knefeh French toast from Bay Vista Dessert Bar & Cafe. This beauty comes sprinkled with pistachio and rose petals, with ice cream on the side. And there are stacks more sweet dreams on the takeaway menu, which you can see over here.

Original Cronut Shake @ XS Espresso

When only something very big will do, XS Espresso is the cafe to call. Their OTT shakes are the stuff of legend and the Original Cronut is the classic.
