Is COVID getting you down? Do you feel like you are living the same day over and over again? Your alarm wakes you up at 7am for school, you rush to get ready for your classes and barely make it through the doors on time. You have the same classes with the same people every single day. When you get let out of your final class you are finally free, with nothing to look forward to! These days there are not many ways to vary your routine due to COVID-19. You may not be able to take a trip around the globe but ordering takeout is a great way to escape your daily routine. We have all heard of Door Dash and Skip the Dishes, but have you really dug deep and tried new places or are you constantly ordering from the same go to restaurants? Here are a few of my favourite places that you can try to spice up your life!
Restaurant #1: Anatolia Souvlaki
Anatolia Souvlaki is located in North Vancouver at the foot of Lonsdale. It is a great option if you are looking to try a different and unique type of cuisine. This amazing Greek food will transport you to the picturesque Greek islands. I would recommend ordering the hummus and pita as a starter, followed by the greek salad and chicken skewers. Anatolia Souvlaki is available to pick up at the location or be delivered to you through the DoorDash app.
Restaurant #2: Tacofino
Do you dream of relaxing on the white sandy beaches of Mexico, suntanning with a cold beverage in hand? Try something new and order Tacofino. These delicious tacos and burritos will help you escape to the tropical paradise that you have been dreaming of. Tacofino has multiple locations in Yaletown, Gastown and two trucks in Downtown beside the Art Gallery. My go to order would have to be the Chicken Burrito. Tacofino is available on DoorDash for either pickup or delivery.
Restaurant #3: Burgoo
Imagine curling up in a fluffy blanket on the couch, with your dog sitting at your feet. You are just about to turn on your favorite show and relax after a long and tiring day of work. The only thing missing is a warm cup of soup and a gooey grilled cheese. Burgoo has you covered! The dishes at this bisto are mainly focused on their slogan, “food for comfort”. Located in North Vancouver, Burgoo is a great takeout option after a busy day. Some of their most popular dishes are the Gooey Grilled Cheese Grillers, the Macaroni and Cheese and the Butter Chicken. The next time you are looking for some comfort or just a really delicious meal you can use DoorDash to have takeout from Burgoo delivered right to your doorstep!
The next time you feel like you need to add something different to your day routine make sure you try one of these restaurants and let me know if you liked the food! Even though you may feel as if COVID has made your life boring and repetitive there is always something new that you can try to add a little spice to your life.
