The Best Takeaways in Birmingham Open During Lockdown

In these unprecedented times, many are finding themselves missing the old routines of life, from spending time with friends and family to escaping to the pub to even the dull daily commute. While much of normal life is set to be disrupted for a while, there is one pleasure everyone can still enjoy: good food. Although the restaurant might now be more like your kitchen table, it doesn’t mean that restaurant-quality food has to be only a fond memory. Below is a list of some of the best places to order food from right now in Birmingham.

For a Taste of Italy

Good news for all those pizza-lovers out there: many of their most-loved Italian restaurants are open for delivery across the city. No matter if the household is of thin-crust lovers, those inclined to a stuffed crust or aficionados of the Chicago style, there are options out there for everyone.

Some of the best-rated Italians open right now include Pizza Valentino’s and Uno Pizza. Both of these establishments come highly recommended, offering a large array of toppings at reasonable prices. Their food, alongside that of all the other restaurants on this list, can be ordered from Just Eat. Splash a little bit of cash on your dinner or give a Just Eat gift voucher from somewhere trusted like Gifts Vouchers if you want to give a loved one who hates cooking the night off.

Take Things State-Side

One of the most popular options currently available in Birmingham is American cuisine, specifically burgers. There’s a wide range from the classic cheese quarter-pounders, more health-conscious vegetarian alternatives, as well as numerous halal options to treat yourself and your family. With ten restaurants currently taking orders, finding one to suit the household’s preferences should be quick and simple. While all of those on offer have an average of 4 stars (out of 5), Paccinos and Ranchers Gourmet come with a myriad of sterling reviews.

A British Classic

Sometimes nothing can hit the spot like fish and chips. The Cape Hill Chippy comes wonderfully reviewed, offering the traditional fish, chips and mushy peas alongside an array of burgers, wraps and drinks to keep everyone happy.

Skip Straight to Dessert

Dessert is often the best part of the meal, so why wait for it? There are so many choices out there for those with a little sweet tooth. Dessert Box offers a plethora of puddings to make anyone’s mouth water, from the traditional carrot and chocolate cakes to milkshakes, ice creams and generously topped waffles. They even offer ‘deluxe boxes,’ which they fill with sweets and chocolate, fully customisable and utterly indulgent. Still not convinced? Take a look at their Instagram to get the cravings started.

Spice Things Up with a Curry

For Brummies craving a curry feast, 18 Indian restaurants are currently taking orders across the city. All of these restaurants have a rating of 4 stars and above, and with many of them offering free delivery, it looks like now might be the time for a curry.
