Coronavirus has entered Thailand in full force. Maybe we saw it coming, but little could have prepared us for the situation we’re in now — enforced curfews, tightening “stay at home” vices, and the shutting of all department stores, restaurants, and entertainment venues city-wide. Thankfully, the rise of food delivery services means you can still enjoy the city’s exciting gourmand options, while being a socially-responsible, self-isolating citizen. And by gourmand options, we definitely aren’t talking about your regular instant noodle fix.
In light of the Covid-19 restrictions and closures, many of Bangkok’s top fine-dining establishments are turning to delivery for the very first time, leading to an abundance of upscale gourmand options that you can have sent straight to your doorstep. Whether you’re feeling up for an evening of French fare, or want to enjoy Thai flavours with an innovative twist, we’ve rounded up a list of the best delivery options you can enjoy from the comforts of your couch.
Mandarin Oriental Bangkok
That’s right — you can now get your favourite items from Mandarin Oriental’s a la minute menu of Thai and western specialties, delivered straight to your door. Among the sandwiches, pizzas, salads, and soups, what we’re most excited for is that their vegan burger is also up for delivery.
How to Order: Via Line Man, under ‘The Mandarin Oriental Shop’.
