Here are some local restaurants in Utrecht that deliver food at your doorstep. Bon appetit!
The concept is innovative: gym and restaurant in one. While we really miss their workout sessions, we thankfully don’t have to miss their tasty meals. As of now, FIG offers a dinner rotation with a “dish of the day” to be ordered by 2pm. Add any sides, desserts or drinks from their menu and enjoy it at home. I am impatiently waiting for shakshuka day to be back!
Punk Pizza is not only delicious and out-of-the-box pizzas, but they are currently paying it forward by donating 1 euro per pizza ordered to Utrecht’s cultural scene. Cultural establishments and artists are currently facing unprecedented hardship, and if eating pizza can contribute to the cause even so slightly, sign me up.
Gys is 100% organic and focuses on vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options (yet they have meat dishes too). It’s a perfect healthy choice that has options for anyone quarantined with you. Who wouldn’t want vegetarian kapsalon made healthy for some guilt-free junk food?
Life’s a Peach
Talk about baked with love! Life’s a peach is a Focacceria & Design shop ran by food and art-loving owner Vanessa. From savoury focaccia’s, freshly baked bread to donuts and other sweet things, support this talented business owner and treat yourself. Win-win.
If you are living by a plant-based diet, you sure are not forgotten. Waku Waku ’s popular restaurant on Vredenburg might be temporarily closed but they will bring the goods to you. Pizza, burgers, noodles, salads; all the delicious soul-food made vegan.
ANAN’s Vietnamese food is my go-to for fresh, tangy, bold flavours. Perfect to bring a little variety to your dinner routine. This Asian restaurant in Utrecht offers a wide selection of Vietnamese staples, with plenty of options to cater for vegetarians, vegans, meat-eaters and everyone in between.
What about a HOT DOG? Dogma is all about hotdogs in all sorts of funky variations. Mexican toppings, sauerkraut, Japanese-insipred, with a side of truffle fries? Swap any dog of a plant-based sausage or go for a gluten-free bun; mix and match to fit your wildest hot dog dreams.
Spice Monkey is a new-comer on the Utrecht restaurant scene, and an unlucky one when it comes to timing. But we all love trying out new places and discovering new menus, don’t we? This is the perfect occasion to explore the emerging culinary scene of Utrecht. Go check out that spicy Bali-inspired goodness and tell us how you like it.
Brunch by Teds
Make your weekends feel special still with some tasty brunch. Teds is one of Utrecht’s busiest spots for brunch, and for once, no need to wait for a table. Order from Teds extensive brunch menu – eggs benedict, granola, pancakes, you name it – and keep weekends feeling like weekends.
Cakes and other sweet deliciousness freshly baked and brought to your door! On days like these, I believe we all deserve to spend some quality one-on-one time with a slice of chocolate tart, a glossy cinnamon bun, or a hearty bowl of soup (they do lunch too). Treat your soul with some KEEK.
Let’s end with a bit of a wild card. I have been introduced to Roberto Gelato a few months back as the best ice cream in town by an Italian friend (so she knows her gelato). Sadly they then stopped selling gelato for the winter months. But to my delight (and my friend’s) they are now open for business and will bring that iced creamy heaven to you.
