Remembering to bring lunch to the office isn’t always easy, and if you’re in the middle of a project, you may not have time to get out and grab food. But boy, is your tummy rumbling. When you’ve been working all day and you’re weary and hungry, the last thing you’ll probably want to do is cook dinner. On the other hand, it could just be a very lazy Sunday afternoon and the idea of getting off the couch is simply abhorrent to you. All of these problems can be solved by ordering food in.

Lunch orders

Several local restaurants offer food delivery in the day, obviously because they know demand from offices makes it worth their while to do so. Odds are good that they will have a minimum amount that must be ordered to justify the delivery and they may add extra if the location is outside the George Town/Seven Mile Beach area.

One of the advantages of ordering direct from the restaurants like this is that the delivery is either free or a nominal fee. You’ll want to try and get your order in before noon, however, otherwise the wait may be a little longer than usual. See if your favorite restaurant has a website or if you have to call in your order.

Dinner and weekend

Having pizza delivered to your house is a tradition and many of the companies have expanded to include other menu items such as pasta, chicken wings and desserts. Check out Gino’s, Dominos, Papa John’s and Pizza Hut to see what they’ve got in the oven.

If you’re looking for more choice and a full restaurant menu, you can see if the restaurant in question delivers. For example, Cayman Cabana offers specialty off-site private dining experiences for guests at villas, condos and private homes island wide, featuring custom crafted dinner menus for eight or more people. Or take a look at www.finedinein.com and www.islandgrub.ky. These delivery services cover all the restaurants that don’t offer delivery, allowing you to order exactly what you’re craving and have it brought to your doorstep.

From sushi to Italian and Indian to Mexican, you can create your order online, send it off, and about 45 minutes later (depending on where you live) you’ll have dinner served at home.

The delivery charges vary based on the company you use and the restaurant you choose, but when you really don’t want to cook a meal, you’re hungry and you’re relaxed, can you put a price on such a service?
