The Best Restaurants To Order Food From When You Can't Get Off The Couch

We see you. You're still full from Christmas dinner, you've barely moved in three days, yet you still can't put down the chocolates. You're officially done with turkey and ham sandwiches and even the cheese board has lost its shine, but you're not emotionally ready to cook again after the military efforts of the 25th. This will be all of us at some point between Christmas and New Year's, and that's when you need our list of the best restaurants to order food from wherever you are in Dublin, because there's more to food delivery than pizza and chips (but that's there too if you want it - no judgement). This is where we'll be ordering from this festive season, thanks to Just Eat.

Bullet Duck And Dumplings, City Centre

Delivery areas: Dublin 1, Dublin 2, Dublin 8, Dublin 7, Dublin 3

Bullet Duck and Dumplings opened in August boasting of chefs from China and Hong Kong who are all grandparents - that's a lot of combined years of experience. They specialise in roast duck and pork, cooked in their bullet oven flown over from China, and their dumpling selection includes har gau prawn with sesame seeds and micro herbs which Irish Independent food critic Katy McGuinness called "excellent" when she reviewed them last month. Order from Bullet Duck & Dumplings here.

Shaka Poké, City Centre

Delivery areas: Dublin 1, Dublin 2, Dublin 4, Dublin 8

Irish poke specialists Shaka Poke serve Hawaiian fish bowls like the 'Heatwave' with Ahi tuna, wakame, jalapenos, cucumber, sweetcorn and chillies, and the 'Off The Wall' with salmon, edamame, carrot, red cabbage and mango, and we guarantee that this will swipe the last remnants of Christmas dinner from your system. Order from Shaka Poke here.

The Juicery, City Centre

Delivery areas: Dublin 1, Dublin 2, Dublin 8, Dublin 4, Dublin 6, Dublin 7

Now is actually the perfect time to give your body a little break so you can do it all again over New Year's. If you're feeling sluggish and weighed down by too much rich food (safe to assume this applies to everyone except maybe vegans), you need some cold-pressed goodness from The Juicery in George's Street Arcade. With the menu solely consisting of juices, smoothies, acai bowls and bone broth, there's nothing to even remotely pull you off course. Order from The Juicery here.

Zaytoon, City Centre

Delivery areas: Dublin 2, Dublin 6, Dublin 8, Crumlin

Everyone's favourite kebab house Zaytoon had a slick makeover earlier this year in advance of their expansion to Swords and Ranelagh, and the new menu is better than ever. Try the kubideh - delicately spiced and skewered beef and lamb mince, which comes with fresh bread, salad and chilli garlic sauce, or go old school with a lamb doner. Order from Zaytoon here.

Konkan, Clanbrassil Street & Dundrum
