LIFE-SAVING MEALS TO GET DELIVERED WHEN YOU'RE RECOVERING FROM A BIG NIGHT

in partnership with

When caffeine and fried goodness is all that'll make you feel human again.

Pressing a few buttons and having food magically appear at your door is probably one of our most beloved modern inventions. Nothing beats the feeling of ordering from your favourite restaurant and then being giddy with excitement as you track the order till it arrives on your doorstep. This pleasure is particularly heightened when you're coming off the back of a wild night, and your ability to cook for yourself is a little bit lacking, at best.

Park yourself on the couch, get yourself a big glass of water (or a hair-of-the-dog cocktail) and get ready to scroll. No matter how delicate you're feeling, DoorDash has a wide range of comfort food to soothe even the shakiest of spirits.

    Let’s start off with the most obvious hangover buster: a big ol’ cheeseburger. Our first stop is the beloved laneway haunt, Red Hook, which has been serving up Brooklyn-inspired street food since 2014. If you are feeling a bit dusty, we recommend the aptly named Resolution Breaker Burger, with double beef and double bacon, alongside your classic burger trimmings. Want fries with that? We’d highly suggest the bacon and cheese loaded fries, or the waffle fries with smoky mayo. Top it all off with a serve of deep-fried Oreos, and you’ll be in a carb-induced food coma before you can even unbutton your jeans.

    Remember those greasy kebabs you used to order during your uni days? Well, these definitely ain’t it. Known for lovingly made Greek food, The Yiros Shop now boasts seven locations across our fair city. If you decided to channel some Lindsay Lohan in Mykonos vibes last night, we would point you towards the wagyu beef yiros, which comes with tomato, red onion, parsley and tzatziki. Or, maybe you’re feeling more of the lamb, rocket and feta yiros with fresh beetroot and crunchy walnuts. The best part is, all the yiros come with the fries already stuffed inside, so you’ll have a free hand to delete the evidence off your socials from last night. Who knew you were an aspiring Tik Tok star, huh?

    Desperate for a proper pub lunch, but shuddering at the thought of leaving the house? We’ve got the perfect solution. If you can’t quite muster up the energy to haul yourself out the door, the guys at Cribb Street Social will do you a solid, and deliver directly to you. The menu includes beer-battered flathead, chicken parmigiana, or even an angus rump steak — all served with chips and salad. Plus, it also serves up toasties and pizzas. We suggest you splurge on the upgraded sides, too, with rosemary-salted sweet potato fries on offer. The only thing Cribb Street Social can’t deliver is its cracking live music lineup, but firing up one of the Cribb Street Spotify playlists should do the job nicely.

    You may have already had the pleasure of experiencing KaiKai’s all-you-can-eat Korean fried chicken buffet, but now you have the added option of enjoying the legendary chicken wings from the comfort of your own couch. With 12 (yep, 12) flavours of fried chicken on offer, you probably want to order the Standard Banquet Feast, where you get to select up to three of your favourite varieties. We’re diehard fans of the Nacho Cheese wings and the Black Dragon (soy and vinegar) flavour. KaiKai also serves up some pretty epic loaded fries, with toppings such as barbecue jalapeño, honey butter and takoyaki (okonomi sauce, mayo and bonito).

    Quick show of hands: who’s guilty of making late-night brunch plans for the next morning only to bail on them the second the sun rises? Yep, we hear you. So does the team at Industry Beans, who has an extensive breakfast, lunch and beverage menu available for delivery. Just peel one eye open, and fumble around for your phone, and you will have the avocado smash, brekkie roll with smoked bacon and chilli jam or golden crunch granola on your doorstep in a flash. And don’t forget to add a hot or cold coffee to your order — you’re going to need it to get through the day. Much better than embarrassing yourself in front of your local barista, right?

    Don’t let the name fool you — Seoul Bistro offers much more than just Korea’s favourite dishes. The menu is a true Asian-fusion adventure, with everything from chicken karaage and katsu curry to pork gyozas and kimchi fries. Energy lagging after a big night? Give your tastebuds a jumpstart with the Fire Burger, a spicy fried chicken burger with jalapeños, pickles and coleslaw. Plus, if you find yourself hosting some impromptu kick-ons, Seoul Bistro offers party packs for up to six people, featuring no less than 44 chicken wings, plus a triple order of fries and some freshly brewed iced tea.

    Tequenos, anyone? These pillowy-soft fried wontons from Valley hotspot Bloodhound, stuffed with haloumi and mozzarella, and served with guacamole, are the perfect remedy for a sore head. If you’re feeling a little more ambitious, add a few serves of tacos to your order. We’re big fans of the Del Perro (with shredded beef and green capsicum) and the Al Pastor (with pulled pork and pineapple salsa). Bloodhound also has a bunch of vegan and vegetarian comfort food options, including the Keen Wah Burger, with a crispy patty made with spiced potatoes, quinoa and corn. And if you want to truly level-up to feast mode, grab some wings, popcorn chicken or jalapeño poppers to your order.
