Plenty of Food Delivery Options for Yangon Residents Practicing Home Quarantine
By Lwin Mar Htun 1 April 2020
Schools, cinemas and some work places were ordered closed indefinitely last week due to the coronavirus outbreak. The regulation has left the city quiet as people opt not to go out and start to observe social distancing and self-quarantining.
Self-isolation at home is advisable to keep yourself and your family safe, and to help limit the spread of the virus, but eating at home can get boring after a while. With members of the public ordered to avoid gathering in large numbers and to keep at last six feet apart, ordering food via a local delivery service might be a helpful option at this time.
A number of restaurants, bars and tea shops have stopped allowing customers to dine in but continue to accept take-away orders and have teamed up with local food delivery services like foodpanda, food2u, Yangon Door2Door, Grab Food and so on.
The Irrawaddy lists some of the restaurants offering delivery services below.
The city’s popular Parami Pizza, which is famous for its authentic wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas, started providing direct delivery to homes and offices a few days ago. Parami Pizza delivers Italian salads, pasta, steak, desserts and bar snacks with a variety of drinks, direct to your home.
Just call your nearest Parami Pizza location and arrange to collect your order in person or have it delivered. Fees vary according to your location.
Parami Pizza is also offering a buy one, get one free promotion on all pizzas ordered via Yangon Door2Door between March 17 and April 9. The promotion is only available via Yangon Door2Door.
