With the recent launch of UberEATS in Mexico City, Culture Trip got to thinking about all the other ways the busy amongst you in the Mexican capital can order food with your phone. Here we’ve rounded up the top seven app options that deliver food, groceries and even beer to your house without having to lift a finger. Well, not after pressing ‘order’ at least…
Of course, we start off with the newly launched UberEATS. Those of you who already have Uber may have noticed a recent addition to the top toolbar of the current app; clicking the symbol takes you to your app store to download the latest offering from the uber-popular Uber brand. Due to this being a brand new app though, teething issues are to be expected, but at least you can take advantage of the great introductory offers and discount codes that they’re offering at the minute!
Vampiritos may not deliver food, so to speak, but they do deliver all manner of alcohol to your door and while they don’t as yet have an app, you can still order online from your phone. Either way, we thought the sheer ingenuity of this business warranted it a mention! Get mixers, spirits and beers, plus you can throw in a pack of aspirin if you’re already anticipating the morning’s hangover. With coverage over the majority of the city and pretty much all the central locations, Vampiritos is one to keep in mind next time you run low on supplies mid-party.
If gourmet dining is more your style – as opposed to a greasy burger and fries – then Kitzen might be the home delivery food app for you. Predominantly centred around restaurants in the central (and admittedly fancier) areas of the city such as Roma, Condesa and Juárez, you can order the coolest dishes from some of the city’s most popular and Instagram-worthy hotspots, such as French-style bakery La Bohême.
If you’re craving more than just food from a restaurant (for example, perhaps you also fancy some crisps from the local corner shop) then Rappi is the perfect app. They don’t just deliver from restaurants, they also deliver from supermarkets, cafés and pharmacies too. Run out of deodorant? They can bring you some. Really want an ice cream? That’s possible too! Plus, they have leaflets in various locations across the city which offer you discounts with your first use of the app, so keep your eyes peeled.
The eternal classic can now be ordered online or with their app. Although Mexican Domino’s pizzas don’t come with the legendary garlic and herb crust dipping sauce, their stuffed crust pizzas are perfect to satiate your hunger after a long day. And, delivery in 30 minutes or less is guaranteed, otherwise your order is free! The app is available for both iOS and Android.
Finally, if you just don’t have time to go grocery shopping then Cornershop is a one-stop app shop. Currently operating in the big three cities across Mexico (Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey), they also have coverage in Santiago de Chile. Choose from any of the supermarkets they have listed and make your purchases. Need things from a few different spots? No worries, you can place orders in several different shops at once.
