Getting a little tired of the self-quarantine diet? Believe us, we feel you. Even great chefs get sick of cooking the same meals over and over. Fortunately, there’s a slew of great Des Moines delivery options to get you over the hump. From vibrant Thai to kicky teriyaki to homestyle comfort foods, there’s plenty of Des Moines restaurants just waiting to bring dinner to you. Here are a couple of our current picks.
Des Moines Delivery: Our Favorite Restaurants Bring Dinner to You!
via Marina Wood Fired Pizza & Italian Cafe
22636 Marine View Dr S
Des Moines, WA 98198
Pizza may be the original delivery food, but via Marina takes the idea and runs with it! Handcrafting Neapolitan-style pizzas—think of a thin and chewy crust, marked here and there with flavorful burnt spots from the wood-fired oven—this neighborhood-style eatery tops their pies with premium ingredients like fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, and roast crimini mushrooms. Don’t forget to eat your greens: There’s a slightly peppery arugula salad and a classic caesar, plus classics like eggplant parmigiana. Buono!
Bob’s Burgers and Teriyakis
20054 International Blvd
SeaTac, WA 98198
Cutting-edge it ain’t, but Bob’s is always delicious and satisfying, and about as PNW as they come. From the supercharged Korean-style dishes—bulgogi beef and our fave, spicy BBQ pork—to milder glazed teriyakis and stir-fries, the Asian dishes are standouts. But don’t forget the burgers: Hot, juicy and made to order, they practically beg for a sack of crisp crinkle-cut fries on the side. A longtime local favorite.
Maven Meals & Maven Mercantile
641 SW 152nd St
Burien, WA 98166
Definitely a cut above the standard burrito-slinging joint (not that we’re against that!), Maven has adopted to the COVID-19 reality with expertly prepared and packaged meals. Look for handcrafted but hearty entrees like their “epic” lasagna, savory Chicken Marbella—an unusual classic braised with dried fruit and green olives—and all sorts of fresh and enticing seasonal veggies, grain-based sides and salads. Please note: Maven requires ordering in advance for a later drop-off; it takes a second to get used to but the results are worth it!
DEE Des Moines Thai Cuisine
21630 7th Pl S
Des Moines, WA 98198
It’s a shame to miss out on the DEE Des Moines dining room, a strangely romantic setting complete with a grand piano. But you can still get their dynamite renditions of classic and unusual Thai dishes delivered straight to your door, and take it from us: You should. From the vibrant Panang curry scented with fragrant lime leaves to unbeatable summer rolls bursting with cool noodles, fresh basil, and an addictive peanut sauce, the unforgettable flavors of Thai cuisine will have your frown turned upside down in no time flat.
