- Before baby Mack and I rarely had food delivered – we would prefer to dine in, or at the very least, pick up food to take home ourselves. I can see that changing now that we have Emily! Tonight, encouraged by Love Pizza’s great 2 for $20 deal, we tried out their new in-house delivery system (they’ve since moved away from using Skip the Dishes). They were super efficient!
I can’t get enough of their mac and cheeza
One thought on “Food Notes for March 5, 2018”
On the topic of Skip the Dishes and other similar food delivery services, there is this article in TVO regarding this service in Toronto: https://tvo.org/article/current-affairs/the-food-chain/how-meal-delivery-apps-are-hurting-your-favourite-restaurants
I am not surprised restaurants are choosing not to use their services.
