33 Recommends: Best Food Take Out

How longs it been now? 6,7,8 weeks since things closed for the Covid-19 quarantine? It’s all becoming a bit of a blur. If you’re like us and are getting sick of cooking at home while wishing you were eating at some of your favourite spots in the city then you could be in for a treat. Lucky for you, and us, many restaurants have adapted to the new norm and are offering some great take out options so you can treat yourself to some fine cuisine at the comfort of your couch. Our top 5 options from the last couple weeks:

1. Anh And Chi
3388 Main St
They offer many classic Vietnamese flavours done in a slightly refined / modern way. Not sure if calling it modern Vietnamese would be correct but whatever they’re doing it’s bang on. Go to’s :

Number 37 – Grilled lemongrass chicken and/or pork chop with jasmine rice & chili fish sauce.
Gỏi Bắp Chuối Cua Lột (subject to availability) – Fresh banana blossom salad with soft shell crab, roasted peanuts, Vietnamese mint & chili fish sauce dressing.

2. Their There (Hundy)
Sandwiches / Burgers
2042 West 4th Ave
Their There is a cafe that switches to Hundy burger in the evenings. Both are great, and if your looking for a classic burger and fries they’ve got you covered. It’s crazy how some places over complicate a burger, where as we find the simpler the better. Hundy gets it. Go-to’s:

Classic Cheesburger & Fries. Add bacon if you’re feeling a little extra.
Cabbage Salad

3. Bao Bei
French Chinese
163 Keefer St.
If you don’t know, now you know. Best dumplings in the city. Usually you would have to wait in a line to get seated and eat here. It still is the best way to experience their restaurant as the ambience, food, service, decor is almost as good as the food. Adapting to the current situation, they are now offering take out for the first time and so if you really want to treat yourself, or haven’t eaten here before, there’s no better time. They’ve even brought back some old crowd favourites like the Sichuan fried chicken. Go-to’s:

Kick Ass House Fried Rice – Bulgogi beef belly, hijiki seaweed, pickled kohlrabi, charred scallion, house-made schichimi

ADD Sichuan Friday Chicken OR Schnack Trio to any order

4. Virtuous Pie
Vegan Pizza
583 Main Street
Craving some pizza but also thinking about that summer bod? Vegan or simply trying to eat healthier these guys have somehow figured out a way to make something everyone loves eating without the guilty after effects. Everything on their menu is 100% plant based, even their ice cream, so go ahead and indulge. Go-to’s:

Stranger Wings Pizza – Bianca, Spice Buffalo Cauliflower, Crisp Fried Shallots, Blue Cheese Drizzle, Scallion.
Brussel Sprout Slaw – Shaved Brussel Sprouts, Carrot, Red Onion, Dried Cranberries, Feta, Pistachios, Bacon Bits, Miso Tahini Vinaigrette.

5. Juke Fried Chicken
Fried Chicken
182 Keefer St
Sometimes you just want some fried chicken with your beer. These guys do great Chicken and BBQ. Not much else to say, get it delivered to your door and see for yourself. Go-to’s:

Friend Chicken Sandwich (x2) – Dill Slaw, Fried Chicken Boneless Thigh, BBQ Sauce.
Juke Box – Two Pieces Fried Chicken, Quarter Slab Ribs, + Side.

All options go best with a side of cold b33r.
