15 Party Food Delivery Options That Are Not Pizza Or Fast Food

Perplexed Over What To Pick For Your Party? No Problem.

Whether it’s organizing a massive department-sized office get-together, or a secret birthday bash for your best friend -food is a crucial part of every successful party. 

If you are a kitchen klutz, preparing for a dinner party will be a near-impossible task. Even the most competent of cooks might not have the confidence, or time, to single-handedly whip up an entire feast for 20-odd people. In that case, there’s only one real option to consider: Food delivery.

And no, we don’t mean the standard fried chicken, or pizza from the same old places. With a plethora of delivery options available to almost every part of the island, you can get everything from dim sum to yakitori delivered straight to your door. 

With party classics like sushi platters, to exotic canapes and mocktails, even the fussiest eater will find something to suit their palate. And if you’re a last minute party planner, fret not! 

You can get your food piping hot or perfectly chilled, in under 32 minutes, so you don’t ever have to worry about facing a mortifying scenario of guests showing up to an empty dining table. Here’s a list of 15 places where you can get all kinds of party bites, for every type of celebration. 

Let the food fiesta begin! 

1. MexOut: For Fresh Tacos and Burritos


MexOut is your one-stop shop for fresh, authentic Mexican fare. Now that they provide a delivery option, getting your Mexican food fix has never been easier.

MexOut provides a tantalizing range of Mexican soul food classics that make for perfect party bites, from hearty burritos to soft-shell tacos. Spice up your party with Pulled Pork Burritos with Hot Salsa ($13.93), or serve up some Grilled Chicken Tacos with Sweet Mango Pineapple Salsa ($13.93 for 3) for a refreshing but satisfying starter. With the crispy taco boats serving as an edible plate, you don’t even need to break out the disposable utensils. 

An idea to consider would be creating your own burrito party platter, from slicing up different burrito varieties into bite-sized portions. You can pick and mix from an array of different dishes, making MexOut a great party delivery option.

2. Sushi Deli: For Colourful Sushi and Sashimi Platters


Sushi platters are always the first dish to be wiped out at any gathering. With a plethora of colourful sushi and sashimi varieties in each of their fresh sushi platters, Sushi Deli’s delivery option is a godsend to party planners everywhere. 

Many a time have I been disappointed by stale sushi toppings and hard, sour lumps of rice, but the maki and nigiri delivered from Sushi Deli never fails to arrive crisp and fresh-tasting. One of the most common queries that I encounter at the food table seems to be “Is there any more sushi?”, so be sure to order an extra platter or two!

There’s something for every palate in each platter. The Fukujyu Platter ($55.90 for 53 pieces) is a fantastically affordable option, with maguro, hamachi, salmon, and an assortment of maki sushi. If you aren’t a fan of raw fish, then the Unkai Platter ($50.90 for 52 pieces) would be a great choice, with a range of vibrantly coloured cooked sushi from scallops to grilled unagi. 

You can’t go wrong with sushi.
