Nextdish, a South Bay based Chinese meal delivery service, makes dishes in their commercial kitchen (lots of Shanghainese stuff), and also distributes dishes from local restaurants like Jenny’s Kitchen and Saigon Seafood Harbor.
It appears they have expanded their coverage all the way up the Peninsula, and in the East Bay, as far north as Hayward and Alamo (sorry, Oakland/Berkeley). Where I’m typing in the Tri-Valley region, the offerings look way better than any restaurant that delivers but, at present, menu options in San Francisco are rather limited. They advertise “healthy cooking, less salt, less oil, no MSG” and, as April Chan discussed in her article, How Chinese restaurants are shut out of the organic food movement, owner Allen Shi says a number of ingredients are organic or sustainable.
I also learned, via a Facebook ad, of a delivery service with some options in SF— MyShef has mostly noodles and dumplings, delivered refrigerated. The prices seem lower relative to restaurants serving the same dishes [Indian options look very good too].
Anyone tried these services, what do you like?
