Working from home, school closings, social distancing. As if life wasn’t already chaotic enough, the past week and all of its coronavirus craziness has likely sent more than a few of us into insanity overdrive. Consider taking one task—making dinner—off your to-do list (and help support struggling local businesses while you’re at it) by ordering in and letting Uber Eats do the pick-up and delivery duties for you. Here are just some of our picks for the perfect delivery night in. What are yours? Let us know on our Bergen Mama Insider page on Facebook!
Ramen Azuma: If you’re in the mood for a taste of Japan (since you won't be visiting there anytime in the near future), this Englewood Ramen house definitely hits the spot. Not only are we obsessed with their silky, flavorful noodles, their Takoyaki (fried octopus balls, perfect for sharing) will give you the hug you're needing right now. Dessert is also on the menu, of course: follow up with an order of sweet treats from Crumble Cookie Bar.
Farmhouse Cafe and Eatery: Because making your own salads is boring. This Westwood favorite never fails with its mix of healthy salads, sandwiches, and sides guaranteed to satisfy any crowd. Finish it off with a fresh, homemade ice cream treat, including hand-packed pints of raspberry chocolate chip to sandwiches like salty caramel, from Conrad's Confectionery.
Chicken can be boring, but it can also be pretty #amazing when it’s prepared right. Le Bon Choix now delivers their French-style rotisseries, burgers, soups and salads, which are all amazeballs. Equally eye-popping? Their $30 deal that gets you on of their award-winning rotisserie chickens for two along with two sides and two cornbreads. Finish off your feast with a late-night sugar rush, courtesy of The Cookie Connect.
Wary of risking exposure from outsiders? Opt for contactless delivery, which lets you decide where you want your order dropped off (as in outside the front door). And remember, tipping is always a good decision, now more than ever!
