Here’s a question for you: When was the last time you went out to eat with your friends on a regular day? Manila traffic has gotten so bad that it’s safe to assume that most of us would rather stay at home than brave the sea of cars along EDSA to go out for a meal on non-special occasions. There’s Skype to see your friends anyway, right? (Just kidding). And with the recent influx of food delivery apps in the country, it’s become more and more tempting — and more convenient! — to just throw a dinner party at home.
However, this same influx of food apps has also given us the problem of choosing the best one. So we put all of them to the test to see which one our go-to food delivery app should be.
And so the battle of the food apps begins. We downloaded the three main food delivery apps available in the Metro: GrabFood, Honestbee and Foodpanda. We got together in the heart of Makati during the dinner rush and got our appetites ready.
Here’s the name of the game: we judged the apps on four main categories, consisting of speed, customer service, quality of food and service, and selection of food. In our book, these four things are essential to a seamless, stress-free experience, aka maximum tamad. I mean, what else is the point of ordering in, right?
