Food is good. I think everyone can agree on that. Nothing beats a hot, delicious, satisfying meal after a long day at work – expect maybe a hot, delicious, satisfying meal that you didn’t have to lift a finger to prepare.
Yes, takeout food is perhaps one of the greatest human inventions of all time. You can get better tasting food than you could possibly pull together on your own without ever having to leave the comfort of your home. You can enjoy Styrofoam container after Styrofoam container of mouth-watering dishes from virtually any downtown Ottawa restaurant without having to change out of your comfiest sweatpants – so long as they have a food delivery service.
Never miss out.
Remember that one time when you walked into the office lunchroom just as your co-worker revealed the biggest plot twist on last night’s The Walking Dead episode? You know, the one you hadn’t seen yet because you were too busy to get around to it? Well that never has to happen to you again, thanks to the wonderful world of food delivery. The next time you get a craving for pizza in the middle of The Bachelor or a hankering for that curry dish you had that one time at that restaurant in downtown Ottawa when you’re trying to focus on Game of Thrones, you can just pick up the phone and order it. Then, it will appear on your doorstep within a half an hour or so. Does it get any better than that?
Cooking wholesome homemade meals is hard; it takes a lot of time and effort. Sure, it might be worth it, but even if it is, most of us only have a repertoire of about five decent meals that we know how to make well from start to finish. We pull those out for special occasions or for when mom comes to visit, but life needs a little more spice than just five meals on endless rotation.
Thankfully, food delivery services are there to rescue us from the monotony of low-skill level cooking. Peanut butter sandwiches are fine every now and then, but wouldn’t it be nicer to have an exotic Indian curry tonight? Or a tantalizing bowl of Vietnamese pho from that restaurant in downtown Ottawa that you always pass?
In short, food delivery services allow us to feel like we have a personal chef on speed dial. Whatever we feel like eating that day, no matter how complicated it might be, is nothing more than a phone call and a few five dollar bills away. Or, even better, food delivery is like having access to every downtown Ottawa restaurant, but no one judges you for wearing those pyjamas with the ketchup stain on the knee.
Really, the best thing about it is that it gives you the freedom to experience all the joys of food in the comfort of your own home – making it just about the greatest thing since sliced bread.
