Highly Rated Online Delivery Services You Can Enjoy in Cebu

Rely on these services for your online shopping needs in Cebu.

While there are plenty of places to eat, drink, and party in Cebu, there are just days when you just want to wind down in your room. All that sightseeing does take its toll at some point. Or maybe your plans were thwarted because of a sudden change in weather and going outdoors is just not advisable.

Fortunately, there are establishments that have online delivery services. Just because you decided to stay in for the night doesn’t necessarily mean you have to miss out on what Cebu has to offer.  You can satisfy your Filipino food cravings at the comfort of your own room in one of many Cebu hotels. You might even be surprised at how the food delivery services in the Philippines are completely reliable.

Connecting to the Internet

Before you can start ordering, make sure you have a secure internet connection. If you are traveling to Cebu and staying in a hotel, choose the hotels and other accommodations that allow their guests to connect to their Wi-Fi and provide them with a unique username and password. However, not all accommodations provide the same service.

In case this happens, there are affordable ways you can connect to the internet.

Before delving into the methods, first know that major internet providers are PLDT, Globe, Smart, Sun, and Sky. If you are on a tight budget, all these providers have prepaid bundles. But if you have some cash to spare, you can also take advantage of their postpaid packages (which can be useful if you’re staying much longer).

With that said, here are some of the online delivery services that you can take advantage of during your entire trip:

Online Delivery Apps

If the US has UberEats, then the Philippine equivalent is either GrabFood or FoodPanda. Like UberEats, these apps generate a list of Cebu restaurants that you can order from based on your search.

Similarly, their users rate and review the restaurants, so you know which ones to pick. And they list all kinds of establishments, from local food delis, diners, and breakfast places, to more high-end restaurants. What’s even more convenient is these apps roll out promo codes, so you can take advantage of discounts when you order.

And even if you don’t plan to order at all, at least you have a reliable guide for where to eat in Cebu. Regardless of where you’re staying in Cebu, make sure to download these apps on your phone as soon as you can.

Cebu Supermarkets that Deliver Groceries

If you prefer to whip up a meal yourself but don’t know where to find the ingredients, there are supermarkets that have online delivery services for you.But apart from food items, you can also have other necessities delivered, such as toiletries, junk food, drinks, and other merchandise you can add to your cart. This can be handy to tourists that are staying in an Airbnb and have access to kitchen equipment.

Some of the most reliable supermarket delivery services where you can order online include:

  • Cebu Online Groceries
  • Landers Supermarket
  • MyTindahan.net

But aside from supermarkets, there are other notable online grocers you can check out:

  • HappyTraders (Delivers fresh seafood)
  • FruitDel (Delivers fresh fruits for free)
  • The Detox Bar (Delivers nutritious meals for people on a diet)

So really, whatever you need delivered, there are online grocers in Cebu that would deliver them to you.

Fast Food

Filipinos are also big fans of fast food. The most popular Filipino brand is, of course, Jollibee, but there are other stores worth checking out. Here are a few examples:

Chowking

A sister store of Jollibee, this chain of stores specializes in Filipino Chinese food—that is Chinese food that Filipinos enjoy. A few examples include pancit, lumpia shanghai (spring rolls), and siomai. However, there are also the usuals, such as dumplings, noodles, and fried rice.

Mang Inasal

If you’re craving for more local fare, then Mang Inasal is the store to order. Their main specialty is Filipino grilled chicken, but they also serve local fish (such as bangus) and desserts (halo-halo being the most popular).

Orange Brutus

While Jollibee is beloved across the country, Cebuanos can call Orange Brutus their very own fast food. The dishes served are very similar, but the burger steak is by far the bestseller (it even received the Best of Cebu award for three straight years). And no experience in this store would be complete without sampling the Chocolate Monster cake, one of the most decadent in the city.

The best part is that these stores have online delivery services available. Simply visit their websites to find out how to make an order.

Online Shopping

Amazon and eBay aren’t that popular in the Philippines. Instead, Filipinos frequently order from Lazada, Shopee, and Zalora.

Don’t underestimate these online merchants. They may not be as established as Amazon, but they have just as diverse products. And because of the exchange rate, you can buy them at a considerably lower price compared to American online merchants. You can take advantage of coupons to pay your merchandise at a discounted price or waive the shipping fee. This certainly beats window shopping for several hours at the mall.

Lechon Delivery

Don’t be too surprised that this specialty meal can be delivered. After all, it is one of Cebu’s specialties. The lechon has become more accessible because establishments roast the belly portion alone instead of the whole pig. Because of this, you can have your very own slice of lechon delivered straight to you. Here are some of the lechon sellers that deliver:

  • House of Lechon
  • Boarcher Cebu Lechon House
  • Rico’s Lechon

Now you can eat the finest roasted pig you’ll ever get to taste all while avoiding a crowd of customers.

While there’s no denying that the internet in the Philippines isn’t as advanced compared to western countries, this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is completely unreliable. Cebuano entrepreneurs are fully aware that this platform helps them provide better service to their customers.

So go ahead and book an online delivery for all your needs.
