Chengdu’s ever changing food scene has various offerings to be delivered straight to our doors. Whilst Sichuan boasts one of the most celebrated cuisines in the world, Chengdu is still lighter on quality international eateries than most cities along China’s Eastern Coast, and chuan cai doesn’t always leave us satisfied after a baijiu business dinner…Lucky for us all, Chengdu’s exciting start-up culture is giving rise to many independent or family-run delivery services which, aided by the ease of WeChat and low sunk costs, means there’s a new menu finding its way to us almost weekly.
From cheesecake to chapatis, the Chengdu Expat team tests out Chengdu’s food delivery services.
Having already established itself as Chengdu’s best sandwich delivery Service and best Café bakery, Munchwich also offers side dishes and, depending on the time of day, throws in a free soft drink and brownie too! We’ve tried our fair share of Munchwich’s offerings, more often than not when we’re hungover – and we love the wide range of sandwiches available (they have vegetarian options too!). The sandwiches are good quality, very filling and generally consistent (a quality not always found in Chengdu). Munchwich now also has a cafe in the Blue Caribbean complex, serving great coffee with a good range of beers on tap, as well as their trademark sandwiches and salads.Sandwiches usually arrive within the hour, and they come in smart and modern packaging. Delivery costs 10RMB within a 5 kilometer radius of the Munchwich shop, and 15RMB beyond that. Sandwiches range in price from 39-120RMB, sides are 15-30RMB.Order through WeChat, ID: iamMunchwichscan the QR-code for more info:

A decent cake in Chengdu isn’t easy to come by, but the ladies from Cheesecake Love (formerly of popular bakery Cakey Butta) make delicious mascarpone offerings that will deliver for free inside the Second Ring Road. For further afield addresses you will need to use UBER. Favourites are the red velvet, nutella and the rainbow cheesecake – there are also specials offered regularly. You can buy some cakes by the slice, in 6inch halves or as mini-cakes – but this depends on the daily availability.

Rob’s MVP Pizza is a new American run, no frills, pizza joint in Chengdu. Run by Rob from the States, the casual eatery has retro arcade games to keep you busy while you get your pizza fix – and a giant 110 inch screen to chill out and watch movies.Rob travelled around America sampling pizzas from across the country (a hard job but someone has to do it hey), as inspiration for his pizzas at Rob’s MVP Pizza. They’re made with top ingredients, are real cheesy and arrive piping hot.They also do a range of American style subs, drinks and sides like wings, wedges and fried mushrooms – delivery, or to eat in. Every week they have movie screenings on their giant telly (every Thursday), and twice monthly games nights.
Yalla Yalla (from the team behind Safari Dubai) is a hole in the wall shawarma joint, just a stones throw from Lan Kwai Fong.They serve up freshly made flatbread with halal chicken shawarma, falafel, and Indian style butter chicken.There are just 3 seats at the bar in Yalla Yalla, as it’s mostly geared up for delivery or take-away, but they’ll deliver all the way down to Hua Yang, so fear not if you live outside the third ring road.The chicken shawarma wrap (32RMB) was tasty, but it was the falafel wrap (22RMB) that stole the show. Crusted with sesame, the light, crunchy chickpea parcels sit happily drizzled in tahini with crisp pickled jalapenos and salad. You can add avocado if you like, but why reinvent the wheel. If you’ve really had a rough day and fancy the ultimate indulgence – their Shawarma Submarine (58RMB) is layered French fries, shawarma and salad – grilled under a decadent layer of cheese. You wont have room for seconds.Opening Hours:11am– 10pmTel: 173 4599 7390Address: Jinjiang District, Dongsheng Street No. 26, 锦江区东升街26号Order through WeChat, ID: yallayallachengduscan the QR-code für more info:
