We're all stuck in that weird universe right now of craving restaurant food but a) not being able to access it and b) not wanting to put on pants. Very luckily, help is at hand from some of Sydney's favourite restaurants. From three hat titans to cute cafes, here's some of the food we're all craving most, either delivered straight to your door, or an Uber call away.
Whoever said rice bowls were a healthy takeaway option was definitely getting a little too high on their own supply. But they are a very comforting option. At any rate, there are nutritious pickles and seaweed in Dopa's rice bowl, and a perfect soft poached egg. And what's living in solitary confinement if you can't have a little karaage chicken now and then? Available via Uber Eats and Deliveroo.
Chef-owner Alex Kearns' daily changing takeaway and delivery menu offers all those refined, homestyle comfort dishes you've come to know and love over the years GPD has been servicing Glebe. But if there was ever a time to combine two great comfort loves - roast chook and macaroni - it's right now. Minimum order is $50, and delivery is $7. Bring on the rice pudding with palm sugar syrup and quince.
We're not suggesting you drink and drive, but you should certainly drive to drink LTD's phenomenal wine list, available via drive through, drop in or delivery within 3km, at their guerilla bootleggers bottle-o. They're open 3-8pm, Monday to Saturday, and if you email ahead, you can also order one of chef Tom Bromwich's lasagne for two - he's doing a beef version, and an eggplant version for all those plant-based lovers out there.

The little cafe that mysteriously once seated most of Potts Point on a Saturday morning offers pick up and delivery via Uber Eats and Deliveroo. Brunch may now be a weird thing you do in your lounge room alone or with your fellow captives, but you can at least make it something truly delicious. Their lamb wrap with tahini and yoghurt dressing is rich enough to split into breakfast and lunch if you're feeling the pinch.

Dinner for two, cooked by a three-hat chef eaten in your jammies is a weird new reality. But one we're going to lean into if it involves chef Dan Puskas' moussaka with tomato braised beans, a salad and rice pudding for dessert. Home dining is available weekly on Thursday and Friday from 5-8.30pm, ordered in advance and picked up from the restaurant. Their sommelier will also match a bottle of wine to your order, if you ask.
