Restaurants in Kathmandu are gradually resuming their operations through takeaway and delivery services amid the long-running lockdown. Most of the restaurants are open for takeaway and delivery already, following a brief guidance from the authorities, while some are on track for the same.
A majority of restaurants are delivering through food delivery services such as Pathao food, Foodmandu, and Bhoj. So now, you can get different cuisines at home from your favorite restaurants.
For Korean food enthusiasts, Hankook Sarang Korean Restaurant is offering takeaway from its Tangal and Thamel outlets. The Korean restaurant initially began offering takeaway service earlier in May last month, with deliveries at select locations due to lockdown restrictions. But as soon as the restrictions eased for delivery services, Sarang began serving in a wider area beginning earlier this month. Although Hankook Sarang delivers itself, it has also partnered with Pathao food to reach more locations. The food menu, which now includes food sets too, is available on Hankook Sarang’s website and Pathao. You can place your order through Sarang’s Instagram handle or Pathao food.
Likewise, one of my beloved places for Asian cuisine, Pho99, has resumed its service. Pho99 began delivering recently through Foodmandu, with different varieties such as summer rolls, wontons, barbecues, and pho. If you’re craving Vietnamese grub, you can get these dishes delivered right to your doorstep from the Foodmandu food delivery app (Boudha and Jhamsikhel).
If you’re looking to order different food items from one place, Trisara has got you covered. Along with Trisara’s restaurant, sub-brands Peros Pizza and The Baking Factory are delivering as well. They offer oriental cuisine, pizza, and a wide selection of bakery items. You get the option of ordering different items such as momo, pasta, pizza, cake, patties, and more from the same place. For detailed menu, you can navigate through their Instagram or Foodmandu, their delivery partner.
Kupondole’s Spice is open for takeaway and delivery. The multi-cuisine restaurant offers a variety of dishes, including dishes like pizza, pasta, and Indian dishes, along with lunch boxes. You can also order coffee and smoothies. The Spice restaurant is delivering through Foodmandu, Fooddole, and Bhoj; the food menu is available in-app.
If you’re looking for your daily caffeine, Himalayan Java Coffee is open for takeaway, and Redmud Coffee has begun delivering through Foodmandu, Bhoj, and Pathao food in spill-proof cups. All Java outlets are open for takeaway except for the ones inside malls and shopping centers, as of writing this article.
According to the restaurants and delivery services, they are following adequate safety measures to ensure the safety of their customers and employees amid the health crisis. While the number of COVID-19 cases has decreased in recent days, the situation is still unpleasant. It maybe quite some time before we see eateries opening for dine-in.
There is currently no evidence that people can catch COVID-19 from food or food packaging. COVID-19 is a respiratory illness and the transmission route is through person-to-person contact and through direct contact with respiratory droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes.World Health Organization
