If you haven’t tried the delivery service Foodora yet but have always wanted to, this is the time to try! Foodora has recently expanded their delivery area from just Downtown Vancouver to include Mount Pleasant, Commercial Drive, and Kitsilano. To celebrate this expansion, they are offering free delivery until April 30th.
I was given a $40 dollar voucher to try out this service again (read my first review on Foodora here) and I can tell you my experience each time has been fantastic. From forgetting to enter my promo code before hitting checkout and having it resolved within seconds with the online Customer Support chat, to the Foodora delivery person being so kind and courteous when giving me my order, I can confidently say that Foodora has the best customer service of all the delivery services I’ve tried.
I ordered from Shishinori as I’ve never tried their food before despite seeing all of their drool worthy and healthy meals on Insta. I got the Wasabi Mayo Beef Avocado Sub ($4.75), Unagi Kabayaki Combo ($15.00), Real Crabmeat California Bowl ($14.50), and Mixed Green Salad ($3.80).
The Wasabi Mayo Beef Avocado Sub ($4.75) was Meta Knight’s favourite item of the bunch. He liked the abundance of beef and avocado in every bite. The wasabi mayo also added a nice heat without being overpowering.
Typical Mixed Green Salad ($3.80). Not much to say except I do like how they added some avocado and tofu slices. That was a nice touch.
My favourite dish of the bunch was this: Unagi Kabayaki Combo ($15.00). The ‘combo’ comes with miso soup and a drink but you can easily just have this by itself for $2.50 cheaper. I liked how the unagi was served with brown instead of white rice making this dish healthier. Also, the side salad and boiled egg rounded off the meal nicely by providing some variety. I was at a comfortable 70% full after eating this (but the portions may not be enough for someone with a larger appetite).
The Real Crabmeat California Bowl ($14.50) in comparison was not as memorable only because the sauce was much lighter than the unagi sauce, making it very ‘clean’ and ‘light’ tasting. Not bad attributes. Just not as memorable on the palate as the unagi combo.
For our drinks we got the Creamy Rose Tea and Mango Black Tea. Both of these were included in the combos and both were equally delicious. These are very lightly sweetened which was perfect for us.
All in all, I would highly recommend trying the Foodora service especially during this month when the delivery charge (typically $3.50-$4.50) is free. If I lived in downtown, I would use this service every other day during this month. There’s nothing to lose!
