Skip the Dishes – new way to order food in Winnipeg

30 Jan

I have a really bad habit – I get a craving for something and I dwell on it – and then usually I make my husband drive across the city to pick it up. Or, we settle and have something closer by, but it’s not want we wanted, or more expensive etc.

A great new company has opened up in Winnipeg that will solve this – Skipthedishes! You can order from a bunch of restaurants in Winnipeg and they will deliver it for a fee from $1 to $6.

I think this is a great idea for an at home date night or special occasion – you can get great quality delivery and not have to pay a sitter! ๐Ÿ™‚ I know for us on a few anniversaries etc. we just couldn’t get a sitter, would be fun to order from a good restaurant. And best part – no one has to cook or clean up! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  We also sometimes do special celebrations with my grandma who is older and doesn’ t like to go out as much anymore, we usually just order whatever is close by – boring! Now we can actually pick what we’d all want to eat, instead of just by proximity.ย Another great idea for this is to order a meal for a busy mom or dad – neat surprise and the list of restaurants is so long, you can probably find one of their favorites. Great idea for a bday gift, girls night in – or just for when you don’t feel like cooking!

The site is easy to use – pop in your postal code and it gives you a list of what’s available – if you’re looking at an off time there won’t be anything on your list – so look up what’s available at other times. That will give you a list, including what times you can get it, and how much the fee is. Super simple to use and in Winnipeg in the winter weather, it’s a great option for delivery ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Has anyone tried it out yet? What did you think? And what do you think of the restaurant choices for your postal code?

  1. This sounds exactly like Mobile Maitre’D – I haven’t used Skip the Dishes but we have used Mobile Maitre D several times in the past and it was fantastic. Esp in the winter, $6 delivery is much cheaper than the cost of warming up your car, driving across the city in the freezing cold, and driving home again!
    This multi-restaurant delivery service is a fantastic idea, give it a try everyone!

  2. exciting… so many more choices than Mobile Maitre’D. Deadfish Cafe = yum. I wonder how many more they’ll add?? I’ll be skipping my dishes with this cold weather coming in lol

  3. Thanks for the great post Nadine – we love using SkipTheDishes ourselves too =)

    Since you’ve posted this in January, SkipTheDishes has continued to expand our restaurant delivery network throughout Winnipeg (more area codes) as well as adding more restaurants every week. Thanks again!

  4. Skip The Dishes is awesome! I love having the ability to order different kinds of foods, rather than the same old stand-by pizza that we normally go for. With 2 young kids, my husband and I prefer staying home and ordering in most of the time rather than going out. Thanks for the great info, Nadine!
