The Best New Takeaways To Order This Weekend

All the inspiration you might need, with none of the washing up.

When that craving hits... 

That Friday feeling is pretty hard to come by in lockdown, but nothing will make you look forward to clocking off for the weekend more than knowing that a delicious meal is winging its way to you - no prep or washing up required. 

If you're quite over coming up with dinner ideas ad nauseam, instead of looking at your favourite old restaurant-haunts on Instagram and fantasising, scroll on and indulge in your takeaway-of-choice this evening.

While we miss eating out terribly, there is a simple pleasure knowing that your bed is in very close proximity when that full-belly slumber sets in. 

Delivery: 

Lucky Tortoise, Aungier Street

Missing Lucky Tortoise's miso? Yeah, us too! Fill that hole in your life by putting in an order from their condensed menu for delivery or collection and choose from dumplings, okonomiyaki and outrageously tasty sides. 

See the menu here. 

Nightmarket, Ranelagh

It's thai time!! (Sorry). The Nightmarket is offering its same extensive and flavourful menu, available for delivery within a 5km radius of the restaurant from 4 to 10 pm daily. A €2.50 delivery charge applies.

Chimac, Aungier Street

For real soul food via Seoul in the heart of Dublin​, hit up Chimac's delivery service if you're central. A little further out? No worries! They're also offering a 'call up & collect' service with payment over the phone - just don't forget to go hard on the sriracha caramel pourover, please!

Featherblade, Dawson Street

If no good Friday night is complete without a couple of bacon cheeseburgers, then look no further than Featherblade's Real Bacon Cheeseburger Box now available, pick-up or delivery. It’s €39.99 and there is ingredients for 6 whopper smoked bacon cheeseburgers. Need we say more? 

See more info here.

Hang Dai Chinese, Camden Street

Chef Karl Whelan and his team at Hang Dai on Camden Street in Dublin are now offering delivery and zero-contact collection service.

Available from Tuesday to Sunday, the menu will feature a mix of Hang Dai favourites and some new additions. Top of our wish list will be the sesame prawn sourdough toast with yuzu mayo, but we’re also looking forward to trying the fried kung pao chicken with three kinds of chilli.

SONA BOX

The team behind Sprezzatura have come with an innovative way to support local suppliers and continue the ethos of the restaurant by setting up Sona Box. For €30 per person, customers can choose five partly-prepped main courses, which will include Sprezzatura favourites as well as new dishes with Mexican influences, Asian ingredients and more.

€1.50 from each box will be donated to Sona Box's charity partners, which include the Dublin Simon Community and ALONE.

Collection: 

Kinara Kitchen 

If like us, your lockdown takeaway is the highlight of your week but the addiction is burning a bit of a hole in your pocket then look no further than Kinara Group who have just launched a generous EarlyBird offering starter, main and side for €23.50.

Shouk, Drumcondra

If you've OD'd on bland home-cooking and fancy something totally fresh for your palette, opt for Middle Eastern in the form of Shouk and we promise, you won't be disappointed. Plus, it's a relatively healthy option. Delivery is available via Deliveroo too. 

See the menu here.

China Sichuan, Sandyford

Open with a limited menu for pre-orders and collection slots every evening. Their minced chicken and lettuce wraps come very highly recommended, as do the poached Chicken & Pork dumplings in hot & spicy chilli oil. 

See the menu here. 

Pickle, Camden Street

Just a theory, but we're pretty sure the only things that might make a Pickle meal better, is eating it from the comfort of your own couch and at 15% less than the eat-in price. Deliveries are available within 5k of the restaurant. 

See the menu here.

Paulie's, Dublin 4

Offering takeaway every day from 5 pm. If you're in the mood for Italian tonight, choose from Paulie's full menu and get 50% off drinks to-go, such as Aperol Spritz and Negronis. 

See the menu here. 

Mister S, Camden Street

With a menu that switches up and only 15 orders available per day, getting a takeaway from Mister S of a weekend is a bit like winning the lottery. If luck is on your side though and you do manage to nab a collection spot, prepare to be fed very, very well for €22 pp. 

See the menu here. 

M&L Chinese, Dublin 1

We're so happy our favourite Chinese restaurant north of the Liffey is back in action for collection and deliveries via Deliveroo. To order (and DO NOT skip the stir-fried french bean with dry chilli when you do), call or email them and safely collect at the main door of the restaurant 

See the menu here. 

Micheal's and Little Mike's 

Back in action and rearing to go, Gaz Smith et al are taking pre-orders from 1pm on Friday for Michael's (limited quantities are available) with collection starting at 4 pm and your food will be placed directly into the boot of your car, making the whole process completely no contact. Little Mike's will be offering a fish and chip-style menu, with no preorders available but a quick turnaround has been promised. 

See the menu here.

Rascals Brewing, Inchicore

Open Thursday to Sunday with contactless collection, Rascals pizzeria and taproom in Inchicore want to give us all a break from washing up. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options and kids pizzas are available too. 

See the menu here. 

The Exchequer, Ranelagh

The Exchequer in Ranelagh has created an all-new takeout menu jam-packed with wine bar favourites, cocktails, brunch, wine and its famous Sunday roast. Collection is available Wednesday to Sunday from 5 pm (or 1 pm on the weekend).
