One app that you'll probably hear a lot about when you're in London is Deliveroo. In fact, it's popular in other major cities in Europe too, particularly in Paris as well. But what is it about the one in London that has made it popular among residents? Two things, basically. One is that the app accurately tells you the amount of time you'll have to wait until you get your order. More often than not, their ETAs are pretty much accurate. Secondly, the app has provided people in this heavily populated city a new chance to earn a quick buck.
More than just the pre-cooked and already-prepared meals offered by London's finest restaurants, the best food delivery apps to use in this city also bring groceries to your door. Particularly, Farmdrop. When you need to stay at your place for whatever reason you may have, and yet there's no more food in your ridge, just pop on over to the app and type in what you need. They'll guarantee that you'll receive the freshest and the most organic ingredients so that you can prepare a great meal for yourself. It's essentially like going to the supermarket from the comforts of your own home.

With a name like Foodhub, you'd think the best thing about this app is the food. And while they do deliver from London's finest establishments, there's another reason why this delivery service is popular. Compared to the other apps on this list, you'll have a better chance of saving money with Foodhub. And who doesn’t want to lower their food costs in London, right? For one thing, it doesn't charge you a service fee, as most of the other apps do. Most of the time, all of what you'll pay for will be for the food that you order and ultimately receive. No more, no less!
Sure, the most famous of London's restaurants do serve some of the finest dishes out there. And you're guaranteed to have quite the culinary experience if you order from them. But beyond these well-known establishments, the city houses some great cooks as well, and they may not even work for such restaurants. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't try what they have to offer. Gousto allows you to order quality and world-class home-cooked meals while in London. These dishes (of which the recipes are also found on the app) may not be all that famous, but they're definitely worth a try!

There's only really one thing that Mindful Chef focuses on as compared to other apps: healthy options. Yes, a lot of what London's finest has to offer are delicious, sumptuous, and oh-so-good! But most of the time, they can also be quite unhealthy. You never really know what they put in the dishes, or how much of one or two ingredients can actually be found in them. At least, with Mindful Chef, practically everything you can order here are tried and tested as healthy, at times even organic. More than that, they also give one meal to an underprivileged child every time you order a meal!
