It’s officially October and with the crip air and short days, it’s nice to look forward to cozy nights spent inside. While it can be fun to get out and about in the evenings, there’s nothing like a rainy fall evening spent in pajamas, listening to music or watching a binge-worthy series with some incredible take-out. Whether you are looking to indulge in some high-end cuisine or kick back with a few of your favourite casual dishes, Victoria has that and everything in between. But with so many restaurant and food delivery service choices, finding some great take out can easily feel like more work than just cooking! That’s why we’ve come up with our top ten take-out restaurants, from refined fare and healthy eats to stuff-yourself favourites and aromatic entreés – all you have to do is place an order!

Little Jumbo 

This incredibly cool speakeasy in the heart of old Victoria may not seem like the kind of place where you can or would want to order your food to-go, but times have changed and Little Jumbo pivoted in the coolest way. Not only can you order their mouth watering dishes to-go, but you can also order their incredibly hip cocktails that come in individual packaging complete with garnish. So while being shoulder to shoulder in a dimly lit speakeasy can be super fun, enjoying some truffle fries and sipping on an incredible cocktail on the couch in your comfy pants is really the best. 

Pickup only: call ahead to ask about their menu and place your order at 778-433-5535

This traditional Polynesian dish, made with lean protein, predominantly seafood, and a ton of veggies, is as satisfying as it is healthy. At Island Poké, you’ll find a variety of choices for your poké bowl each as delicious as the next. Can’t find exactly what you’re looking for?
