With public health officials telling us to stay home and reduce non-essential travel, life has quickly revolved around what we can access from home... again.
While restaurants are still open, working incredibly hard to ensure the safety of their patrons with increased, strict protocols, we have to acknowledge that there are many of those uncomfortable travelling and eating out!
So, if you're looking to satisfy your cravings at home, enjoy a virtual date night, or spend time eating and talking with friends through FaceTime, we've got a new weekly list for you to do that.
So until public health officials announce improvements in our current state of emergency, here are our favourite takeout spots in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland!
Want a quick, inexpensive, but absolutely delicious spot for amazing Japanese food?
Ebi Ten is your hub for Japanese comfort food, with their selection of delicious Katsu and curry dishes, hot soups (udon), rice bowls (don), stir-fried noodles, and even onigiri!

Having trouble finding the craze that is Birria tacos in Vancouver?
Well, you might have to make a bit of a trek, but if you're in the area, you're a lucky one.

Stewed beef, with melted cheese and an onion-cilantro mix, best dipped in their amazing adobo broth... it's a combo to die for.

Ramen is always on every Vancouver foodie's list, and one of the best spots to go for that indulgent, hot bowl of soup is Marutama Ramen.
