York's a city with a sweet tooth. Chocolatey classics like the Terry's Chocolate Orange and KitKat started out there, and it's even got its own Chocolate Trail so you can trace the city's sweet past. But it's not all cakes and candy in this Yorkshire city, there's loads of amazing restaurants that you can discover on Deliveroo. Here's our pick of some of the best.
Feel like a high-roller with a proper chicken dinner from Winner Winner. Think fresh, juicy chicken, cooked up Southern American style, either stacked in a bap or served straight up by the half chicken or full bird. But for the full Winner Winner experience, you've got to try their signature Winner Winner Chicken Dinner dish. We're talking crispy Maryland chicken and strips of bacon, piled high on top of warm waffles with maple syrup – you've got your sweet, your salty and your waffle hit all in one.
Another late one in the office? Even if your day doesn't feel like it's going great, you can turn it around with a My Thai. You get vibrant Bangkok style street food from these guys, with dishes like chicken or prawn pad thai, hearty noodle soups in a rich steaming broth, and fragrant green curries to choose from. With a feast like this at your desk, that overtime will be over in a flash.
You can't have a guide to York without a shout out to The Shambles. This quirky little street is home to Shambles Kitchen, which serves up slow-cooked meats in big, saucy sandwiches. You have to try the Beef Brisket Pastrami Sandwich, with sauerkraut, Swedish mustard, gherkin and blow-torched Swiss cheese. It's a meaty, melty masterpiece.
Pasta solves all your midweek problems. There's nothing like curling up with a comforting Spaghetti Carbonara from Caesar's for a well-earned time out. This relaxed Italian restaurant serves up all your favourite pasta dishes and pizza, made from fresh, quality ingredients, that are just perfect for a chilled night in or a laid back lunch break.
The Raj started serving up Indian dishes to York curry fans after the owner was inspired by his dad and decided to follow in his footsteps. From classic tikkas and kormas to rogan josh and fiery pathia curries, you'll find that one dish that you just have to get every time someone suggests ordering a curry. Plus, if you're feeling a bit more adventurous, there's loads of authentic dishes to explore.
When food's vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free, nut free, palm oil free and full of flavour, you've hit the culinary jackpot. With over 20 years of serving vegan foodies in York, El Piano got way ahead of the game when it comes to creating food that's good for you and your taste buds. Everything, right down to the biodegradable serving dishes, cutlery and napkins, has a focus on sustainability. It's a firm favourite on Deliveroo, and it'll be your new go-to as well once you've tried the Thai Duo.
Hong Kong Chop House
Do you have those days when you're craving a better lunch, but you just don't know what to get? Two words; dim sum. A platter of these delicate little dumplings from Hong Kong Chop House is great for a break when you can just switch off, sit back and pick up a few of these tasty parcels. And if it's a proper feast you're after, there's loads of authentic Cantonese, Sichuan and North Eastern main dishes you need to try.
