The tried and tested takeaway favourites are always going to be a reassuringly wonderful pick-me-up after a long day, and we all have our go-to Indian, Chinese and pizza places that we know we can rely on for a delicious treat. However, if you’ve walked along Byres Road recently and spotted the big blue Deliveroo boxes and the folk on bikes, you might be wondering what the big deal is, and what makes them worth trying out in place of your normal, trusty take-away restaurant. The answer to that, apart from the that pleasing turquoise colour of the delivery boxes – very calming for a hangry (hungry and angry) person, is the sheer variety of things they will happily deliver direct to your door. Variety is the spice of life, and if you are feeling brave enough for a change, peruse our list of exciting delivery options, courtesty of Deliveroo. Don’t forget to let us know how you get on!

1. Central Sushi

Something about sushi just makes you feel fancy on a day where nothing is going right. It’s also a great one for sharing, so if everyone at work is having a sad sandwiches day, get on Deliveroo and treat yourself to some tasty California rolls instead.

2. Smoke Barbecue

A new addition to the Deliveroo lineup, Smoke BBQ is for the days when you actually possibly could eat a horse. The rain never stopped any real Glaswegian from having a barbecue – and now it’s even easier to get your fix – no midge repellent, umbrellas or toppled over barbecues required.

3. Mr Pretzels

Yes, you heard that correctly. There is now no need to fight your way down Buchanan Street for a delicious sugary, pretzelly treat and boy are we excited. Having a bad day? Get a pretzel delivery. Having a good day? Get a pretzel delivery. Everybody wins!

4. The Hug and Pint

Everything on offer on the takeaway menu is proudly vegan, from delicious soups to creative curries, and this is the perfect healthy option for those who are in dire need of some good food fast, but don’t want to compensate on the ingredients. A great option for exam-ridden students who just cannot stomach another hurried supernoodles and dry toast, as it’s affordable too.

5. Zumo Juices

Perhaps you’re 5 days into a juice cleanse and completely forgot to zap up the good stuff this morning (FYI – the best way to get a bikini body is to put a bikini on your body. End of, love ya) or perhaps you just NEED a flu fighter smoothie before the runny nose becomes anything more sinister. Deliveroo and Zumo juices have you covered, Glasgow.

7. CAU

The menu varies from salads and sandwiches to full-on steaks, with meat and fish cooked to perfection the Argentinian way. Definitely a great option for the fancy food purveyor with no time to cook. Order here.

8. The Tiki Bar and Kitsch Inn

The impressive variety of Thai cuisine on offer for delivery from the Kitsch Inn will tickle everyone’s tastebuds. Meat, fish, veggie, you name it. And when you’re feeling up to leaving the house again after your cosy night in – get your glad rags on and try out the adventurous cocktail menu. Non-rum lovers need not apply (only joking, I’m sure they’ll have something for you too, but oh, the rum).

9. Athena Greek Taverna

If you could taste sunshine, I’m fairly sure it would taste like Greek food. Perfect finger food for sharing, check out the menu of dolmades, kalamari, halloumi, moussaka, and some other delicious treats that we haven’t quite figured out how to pronounce yet but they look well worth the effort.
