8 Best Food Delivery Apps in the Philippines
Foodpanda is the most popular food delivery service on this list. It won’t surprise us if you’ve heard of its frictionless service (or that if you’ve tried it). It hosts, at the time of this writing, more than a thousand restaurants and fast food chains. This in itself is impressive, but beyond this, Foodpanda prides itself as a trusted curator of food, opting to ship only food from restaurants they think are delicious and affordable.
What sets Honestbee apart from its contemporaries is that aside from buying you food from its partner restaurants, its swarm of “delivery bees” will also shop groceries for you. Right now there are only about a hundred partner establishments, but the process works well, with a same-day, one-hour delivery guarantee.
Lalamove is kind of a different beast. In addition to being a business solution for merchants of all shapes and sizes, the company also caters to consumers who want to have food delivered right on their doorstep. The UI is pretty intuitive. The service is “reliable, fast, and convenient.”
Kanguru has been around since 2015, priding itself in its work of “feeding the Hangry,” and slowly growing into a legitimate food delivery solution. It’s sizably smaller than its bigger rivals like Foodpanda, and only offers delivery in a handful of key areas in the metro, including Makati, Pasig, and Taguig.
YumPals likes to call itself “a dating app to match foodies to foodpreneurs.” That promise is true. There’s plenty of new finds to discover, including set meals, party platters, food packs, and other food items directly sourced from their merchants, which are mostly food prepared at home by solopreneurs to mid-sized home businesses.
Yumpals has a webapp on its website, http://www.yumpals.com/, and is working to launch both its Android and iOS apps.
“We don’t just deliver to anyone,” is Delivery Guy’s promise. “That’s too simple. What we do is to make sure we treat everyone the way you do with your friends and loved ones: with care and reliability.” With a very straightforward process and an intuitive payment scheme, I find it unsurprising that Delivery Guy is among the pool of fastest-growing food delivery apps.
There’s an app for just about anything. If you need an “ate” or a “kuya” to help you with errands including food runs—well, what do you know, there’s an app for that! It’s called MyKuya, an app which matches you with partner assistants who will gladly assist you with any errands that need doing. It’s like having your own personal assistant on-demand.
Two Anyone! (f.k.a. Foodie.ph) is an up and coming food delivery service that’s partnered with more than a thousand restaurants. They deliver to Metro Manila and Cebu, and the lineup of its partner restaurants include Shakey’s, Goldilocks, Quiznos, and more. The app is pretty easy to use, which is why it makes the cut on our list.
