Busy weeks when I know I’ll be putting in a lot of hours outside the home only to come back to work more, the last thing I feel like doing is cooking. . .then having to clean up afterward. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy cooking, and like trying out new recipes. Sometimes, though—I just really want to be able to take it easy and order take-out or get food delivered. That’s where Just-Eat.ca comes in to play.
Being vegan, there really aren’t a lot of choices for places to get food delivered or to order from. Luckily, there is a pizza shop nearby that has vegan cheese (Daiya), whole wheat crust and a choice of several vegan-friendly sauces. Rebellious Tomato uses organic ingredients when possible and has vegan and gluten free options. To properly test out Just Eat, I used the service twice. The first time, my order took over an hour to arrive, and the second time, it was here within half an hour! My pizza arrived hot enough to eat right away both times, which I really appreciated, and the delivery guy (same both times) was friendly.
After my order arrived, I received an email asking me for feedback on the services, the quality and my comments. Giving honest feedback allows others to know whether or not they should try out a particular restaurant, so I’m always sure to take a few minutes to do so.
How do you use Just Eat? You can either place an order from work before you leave, or using your mobile device while you’re coming home on the bus—and you can then pick-up or have your food delivered. At home and don’t feel like cooking, or have unexpected company coming over? Use the Just-eat.ca website to place an order for delivery and don’t worry about cooking!
When you sign up on the website, put in your postal code and you’ll see what restaurants are nearby for you to order from. You can narrow down your choices by food type, and then you’ll find out what days/times the restaurant is open. Make your selection, then wait for you confirmation email to arrive—and you’re done! You can make it easy on yourself by having the tip added to your order, so you won’t need to do anything but receive your food and enjoy it.
