We all have those crazy busy days when we just don’t feel like cooking and we indulge at a local restaurant, delivery or fast food take-out. Before I started my blog, I would skip the kitchen a day or two each week in favour of something easier. Now that I’m crazy busy with my blog, I must admit that I eat out or order take-out A LOT more frequently and with that comes the desire to find unique options that don’t break the bank. Have you heard of Just Eat? This handy little website has become my go-to at dinner time!
I get the opportunity to eat at lovely restaurants from time to time with blog related events, so when I’m home, sometimes I just prefer to order take-out to enjoy in the comfort of my own home. As much as I love pizza (guilty pleasure), sometimes I get bored with the traditional take-out options. I was thrilled to discover that Just Eat opens up a world of possibilities – over 500 in Toronto and they’re available in 50 other Canadian cities too!
Not sure what you want to order or what’s in your area? No worries! Just Eat categorizes the options by city and postal code and shows you what’s available in your area grouped by food type (Italian, Thai, Pizza, etc.).
When my friends at Just Eat offered me a complimentary dining experience, I decided to order from an Italian restaurant in our neighbourhood called Casa Di Giorgio. I simply hit up Just Eat, selected what I wanted to order, paid online and within 30 minutes it was at the door! You can even add a tip for the driver on Just Eat so it’s cash free at the door.
I loved my piping hot Italian feast complete with chicken parmigiana, lasagna and garlic toast – YUM! For my next Just Eat experience, I decided to try a Thai place called Bow Thai and it was delicious too! I had peanut chicken curry with spring rolls – once again, fast hassle-free service and hot food at the door within 30 minutes.
I know that these places are available with or without Just Eat, but I love how easy this website makes it – I know that I’m only selecting from places that will deliver in my area and I’m constantly discovering hidden gems that I may not have tried otherwise.
