It has been nearly a year since the world was plunged into a global pandemic that put a chokehold on our everyday lives and, in our collective resilience, we have learned to adapt to our new normal. No sector has adapted as well as the restaurant industry. With most struggling to operate under current restrictions, it truly is remarkable how many have so quickly converted to delivery-only on a whim. Now Philly food lovers can enjoy their favourite restaurants at home in the form of a variety of creative food boxes stuffed with the city’s best eats.
Hovering somewhere between meal kit and takeout, the delivery boxes here include a week’s worth of selected items and cook-at-home meals from various Philadelphia restaurants. The boxes are a collaborative effort between Taiwanese Baology, Malaysian BYOB Sate Kampar, and Central American eatery El Merkury; additional area restaurants are expected to join.
