If you don’t fancy cooking, you can still get food from your fave restaurants brought to you. If you’re dining on demand (and you don’t just want produce delivered) here’s a handy guide to our favourite North London restaurant deliveries. We’ve also got the best Central, South, East and West deliveries listed too.
Sutton & Sons – One of the best chippies in London, we’re hugely relieved that Sutton & Sons is still open for business, delivering via Deliveroo. They have huge queues outside the Stoke Newington fish shop and thankfully all branches of their chip shops remain open too, including Stoke Newington, and Islington. There’s the full menu on Deliveroo including fresh sustainable haddock and cod, cooked to perfection in a light crispy batter. We had it delivered for a Friday night fish supper, with piles of proper chunky fish shop chips, pickled gherkins and onions, curry sauce, mushy peas, AND a side of scampi for good measure. Sutton & Sons have a decent drinks selection too, with beers from Crate Brewery as well as wines and Prosecco. For vegans, there’s a dedicated vegan menu too, which isn’t something you see too often and London chippies! If you live near a S&S, we can highly recommend a lockdown delivery treat – check out the menu on Deliveroo here.
Hot Stone Sushi – Although you can’t recreate the DIY element of cooking your Kobe beef on a hot stone as you do in the restaurant, Islington’s Hot Stone is now back delivering via Deliveroo. We’re big fans of this place and their sushi is some of the best value in London. You can’t really go wrong on the sushi menu, but highlights for us include the seared scallop with truffle ponzu, the seared fatty tuna, and the crunchy hot stone roll. Don’t miss the side of spinach with sesame dressing either – sounds simple but it’s a banger! If you’re in the game for steak too, the A5 Japanese sirloin is as rich and soft as butter.
Lyon’s Seafood & Wine Bar – upgrade your fish & chip takeaway to the likes of fish soup, soft shell crab burgers and whole plaice with seaweed butter from Lyon’s in Crouch End.
Dishoom – Dishoom has opened delivery-only kitchens in Park Royal and Swiss Cottage with radiuses covering Kensal Rise, Queen’s Park, Kilburn, Willesden and Wembley, and King’s Cross, Camden, Kentish Town, and Hampstead respectively. The menus are more limited than what you’d see in the restaurants but you can still get your fix of keema pau, house black daal, chicken ruby and jackfruit biryani as well as softies, beers and wine.
Tanakatsu – if you’re in North London and you’ve got a craving for a katsu curry (or sushi, or teriyaki) then get onto Tanakatsu.
Salvation in Noodles – if you’re hankering after Vietnamese noodles and pho, then Salvation in Noodles is delivering from its Finsbury Park shop Tuesday – Saturday evenings via Deliveroo. As well as steaming hot bowls of noddles, you can pick up summer rolls, dumplings, and ‘Phu Quoc’ chicken wings.
Take Cuvée – Top Cuvée spent the first lockdown doing more pivoting than Ross trying to get that sofa up the stairs, earning themselves one of our Lockdown Awards in the process, and now they’ve done another one with the launch of Take Cuvée. Head chef Will Blank has created a home meals menu, available for same-day delivery in London, with three courses for two people costing £35. Dishes include the likes of celeriac & apple soup, roast chicken & tarragon pot pie and sticky toffee pudding, and all you have to do is reheat the food.
Yard Sale Pizza – if you’re lucky enough to live in a YS delivery area, our favourite London pizza crew will have you covered. 18” pizzas such as the Holy Pepperoni are exactly what we need in times like this. Plus as Yard Sale runs their own delivery team, they can ensure extremely high levels of service and product hygiene. The guys are going cashless temporarily and also offering ‘contact-free’ deliveries, where the pizza can be left on your doorstep if you prefer.
The Clarence – this Stokey pub is carrying on with the new delivery service they launched in the first lockdown. If you’re local, you can get heat-at-home dishes like steak pie, confit duck cassoulet, Swaledale lamb shoulder & gratin dauphinoise, and rainbow chard, leek & cheddar pie dropped off at your door.
Honest Chicken – as you may be able guess from the name, this is a chicken spin-off from Honest Burger, currently delivering from King’s Cross. There are four buns on the menu, all with sustainably-raised free-range Somerset birds – the Chicken, a buttermilk fried thigh with American cheese and chipotle mayo; the Buffalo, with smoked bacon, buffalo sauce and ranch mayo; the Thai, with , honey sriracha glaze, Thai slaw, crispy shallots; and the Grilled, a grilled breast with basil pesto, tomato and mustard mayo.
