As the Coronavirus crisis continues to take hold, lockdown life is upon us once more; and like previous lockdowns, many of us are turning to food as a source of comfort and care in what is an undeniably stressful situation. While it certainly isn't all sunshine and rainbows for Sydney's eclectic restaurant scene, some of our favourites are doing all they can to pivot; creating never-seen-before Sydney takeaway menus and special bespoke meals that you can enjoy at home.

So seize the day! Support these Sydney restaurants now doing takeaway to desperately stay in the game and spice up your lockdown evenings at the same time, with these not-your-average-takeaway meals that are beyond drool-worthy. 

1. Providoor

Sydney Providoor
Takeaway with a top-tier twist; Providoor has come to Sydney and the line-up of restaurants available is officially mouth-watering!

In response to Sydney's extended lockdown, premium finish-at-home meal-delivery platform Providoor has just launched; delivering dishes prepared by some of Sydney's most popular and iconic restaurants. Born in Melbourne as a result of the city's string of 2020 lockdowns, Providoor gives you the chance to enjoy the experience of a meal out, without having to go—well...out.

The platform offers Sydney-siders a great opportunity to support the industry, and it allows restaurants to preserve the quality of their food during the delivery process without having to pay excessive fees to third-party delivery providers, who often take a whopping 35 percent commission; whereas Providoor takes only 15 percent. The food is expertly prepared by chefs in the restaurant’s kitchens before being delivered via cold freight to the customer, who then puts the finishing touches on each dish before serving. Orders are taken by 4 pm for next-day delivery in Sydney Metro, regional NSW and even Canberra! 

So—which restaurants are on the Providoor agenda?! You can currently order from the likes of The Apollo, Monopole, Cirrus, Rockpool @ Home and CicciaBella, with even more restaurants set to be added to the line-up in the near future. We're talking Cho Cho San, Bondi Icebergs, Golden Century and more. Watch this drool-filled space!
