How often do you aimlessly scroll through Menulog, craving food of a Nieuw Amsterdam-standard, but with just the local Thai at your fingertips?
Well, you can stop. Restaurant-delivery service Suppertime is picking up meals from premium Melbourne restaurants and delivering them to your door, so you can swap your Dominoes for a gourmet pizza. Sydney has been all over this since last year, but now we can enjoy deliveries from Melbourne restaurants such as Mama’s Buoi, Mr. Nice Guy, Mamak, +39 Pizzeria, Tadka Boom and Nieuw Amsterdam and more.
“Melbourne is, if not the food capital of the world, certainly one of them,” says Suppertime director Nathan Besser. “The standard of restaurants is very high. It’s the perfect place for Suppertime.”
Quality and time is what sets Suppertime apart from other delivery websites. It employs its own drivers and takes full ownership of the delivery process.
“Other websites will just feed an order to a restaurant, and rely on them to provide the service. We work with drivers and riders in Melbourne to do the deliveries, so our delivery times are faster and more reliable.”
For the moment, delivery is just to the CBD and lower parts of Fitzroy and Carlton – but it will extend to Richmond, South Yarra and its surrounds soon. Pop your address into the Suppertime website and see if you make the cut.
Office lunch, anyone?
