FOOD PANDA: Online Food Delivery Service in the Philippines!

While it seems that landline connections are becoming rare nowadays, it seems that some food establishments still conduct their delivery orders through this medium. Sadly, not all of us have landlines, and using our mobile phones to call a landline can cost a lot, specially if you still can't decide what to order, or if you have to stay on the line for a while to organize your order.

Food Panda, from the same group of online purchasing and service platforms such as Lazada, Zalora, Easy Taxi and Lamudi, has pioneered a centralized online food delivery service in the country. All you need to do is have an internet connection (which most of us do!), and download the app - available in the AppStore, Google Play and the Windows Phone Store.

Click on the FoodPanda icon on your phone and get ready for easy food ordering online! (That's my son as my wallpaper... kids grow up so fast, don't they?)

Click your current location, or type in your current city.

In my case, it's Malanday, Marikina City. FoodPanda will list all partner food establishments that can deliver to you. I, of course, immediately chose Tropical Hut because... do I need to explain why? It's an institution! :-D The other options, I will definitely try next time! ;-)

The menu is displayed, which you can easily browse, including the prices of the items.

Tap on the item to add it to your basket. The total is also automatically computed to help you keep the order within your budget... or convince you to splurge some more!

 Let me add a clubhouse...

As soon as you're done, go to your basket and check out. Indicate your delivery address (for security purposes, I did not take a shot of my exact address, haha). Then click Place Order.

Easy peasy. Your delivery time will be indicated on the Thank You message. In my case, it's 75 minutes. Now, please be a little patient with delivery. They have longer lead times for now, but I'm pretty sure the service will catch up as they ease into the food delivery scene. Expect a customer service representative to call you a few minutes after you place your order.

And finally... our order arrives! Dinner is served!
