You can stay at home and still enjoy some of your favourite restaurants.
Stay at home is the new norm which means no dining out. Luckily, some restaurants are bringing their food to your door so you can still get a taste of what’s to come once you can return to their premises to eat in. Not only is it a night off from cooking, but you can support local food businesses too. Here are some of the best restaurants still delivering grub in Bristol.
1. Oowee Vegan
The vegan burger legends that are Oowee will still be bringing you their epic burgers, dirty waffle fries and fried vegan chicken but it’s home delivery instead. You can still get your hands on the Sneaky Clucker with a crispy seitan patty, signature Oowee dirty sauce, American cheese and lettuce; Cluckin’ Fries with crispy fried seitan pieces, signature house made gravy, mozzarella and spring onions. Picton Street and Baldwin Street branches are both open for Deliveroo and takeaway.
Another vegan favourite in the city, hence why Bristol was voted the best vegan city in the world this year, and you can have an array of Middle-Eastern dishes delivered to your home. You can still have quite the spread with you and your household as there’s something for everyone. From kebabs to tabbouleh, falafels to sweet potato samosas plus all the dips like tzatziki and sundried tomato hummus. Plus, being at home no one has to know about the squabbling over who has the last falafel.
Don’t fancy the same old basic meal everyday? Hang tight as Tsukemono have got dinner covered. Whether you want plates of dumplings filled with pork and kimchi or mushroom or a good old donburi dish like katsu curry or some spicy Korean fries, the Bristol restaurant is delivering the dinner of champions to your area. And we sure need some dumplings, and a medal, for getting through lockdown 3.0. You can also order kimchi and soy pickled eggs, plus homemade chocolate or miso caramel ice cream to be delivered to your home.
4. Woky Ko
If you’ve been missing your bao bun and noodles dearly, fear not. Woky Ko is the spot for you. Throw in some sweet and sour cauliflower, spring rolls and crispy chilli squid for sides and there you have some cracking lockdown grub available to ease you through the boredom. Choose from bao buns with fillings such as pork charsui; hash brown; crispy duck; or Korean fried chicken, to name a few.
They can take our lives, but they will never deprive us of curry night. Thankfully, that’s the case in Bristol anyway. Urban Tandoor is at our service and we are eternally grateful. If we had to go an entire lockdown without a jalfrezi or kofta then… well, I don’t know what we’d do. But at least we won’t have to find out. They also serve up mean seafood and vegetarian curries.
If you still want a slice of the action but from your humble abode, pizza restaurant Beerd on St Michael’s Hill, north of Bristol city centre, is delivering some fine pizzas to your door. From The Convict (n’duja sausage paste base, ventricina salami, peppadew peppers and chillies) to The Scoundrel (white truffle and wild mushroom paste base, smoky speck ham and wild mushrooms) these woodfired pizzas will make this lockdown a little more bearable. Beerd also have gluten-free and vegan options available. Plus, you can even order from a wide selection of beer to well and truly complete the night in style and comfort.
8. Poco Tapas
While you can’t take a quick holiday to Spain right now, you can still enjoy some exquisite tapas. Poco has a host of plates available from mackerel goujons to charcuterie as well as burgers. Order yourself some wine and sit in your dining or living room and wack the heating on and you might as well be on a Spanish terrace. Poco also have some exciting new and seasonal additions to their tapas delivery menu to suit these crisp, colder autumnal days so keep your eyes peeled.
Old Market Assembly is alive and ticking for you to indulge this lockdown. Generously-topped pizzas are a good self-care method during normal times. So, you best believe it’ll work better during this period. Order an obscenely satisfying pizza for home delivery and forgot your worries just for a moment. You can choose from a selection of alcohol to go along with their pizzas such as puttanesca, smoked chicken or brie and olive.
10. Forest Bakery
Because buns are always the best medicine in a crisis. Not to mention the fact that you can also get focaccia, sourdough loaves, croissants and much more. It’s a blessing (and maybe a curse) for anyone with even the slightest sweet tooth or has a hankering for a sourdough. Take out the faff of making a starter and order from Forest Bakery instead, plus it’s free delivery. You won’t be able to stop gorging on their bakes. There’s even vegan pastries. Oh yes. Forest Bakery’s home delivery service is delivering to the following Bristol postcodes: BS1, BS2, BS3, BS4, BS5, BS6, BS7, BS8 & BS15.
11. Alp Mac
With the weather getting colder, we know we would rather spend these low temperatures in the Alps, skiing followed by lots of melted cheese. Praise the Lord, praise thee who kept this wonderful Bristol restaurant open for lockdown delivery. Yes, this Alp Mac has announced they are delivering prepared dishes throughout lockdown. The restaurant provides the instructions for reheating and the meals have a 48 hour shelf life. This is a perfect date night idea or a chance to eat something indulgent together as a household since we can’t currently savour this in an actual restaurant. This cheesy business is also offering Toblerone brownies and tartiflette as well as their classic alpine mac and cheese pots.
