Lunch wraps and other quick eats for busy work-from-home days

New week, new to-dos. 

At this point, you have probably adjusted to the work-from-home setup. While you’ve somehow learned how to cope with the blurry line between work and rest, some days can still get busier than usual. There are to-do lists that seem never-ending that you’d no longer have the time to cook up a delicious treat in the kitchen—let alone have a heavy meal.

The most suitable solution? On hectic days that leave you with no choice but to work non-stop for hours, make it a point to fuel up and have some quick bites as you hustle. Here are some delectable eats that you can order for delivery to satisfy your palate. 

When it comes to chicken poppers, what’s not to love? Apart from the goodness of this finger food, it’s also easy to eat: no waste, no fuss—just pure joy. Jackson’s Fried Chicken is offering this in three mouthwatering Korean flavors: classic, soy garlic, and Korean buffalo (P239 each). For first-timers, I would recommend the soy garlic variant, which features explosions of texture, sauce, and flavor that lie right in the middle of sweet and savory hints.

Any workday would not be complete without a cup of coffee. If you prefer light coffee, Urbanica has milk coffee offerings that could be the perfect work-from-home companions. Among its creamy coffee-based items are caramel, white chocolate, chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, hazelnut, and matcha. At present, the brand’s prices range from P70 to P84 on FoodPanda, which are initially priced between P100 to P120.

Not into coffee? Go for milk tea instead. Ranging from P84 to P175 on FoodPanda, Wantea not only has OG milk tea flavors that you love but also special blended drinks such as the strawberry mousse and salted caramel.

Another great option would be Mongolian bowls from Champion Hotpot. The best thing about this offering is the experience it comes with. You can customize your own food according to your liking—from the base, sauce, and toppings to the protein and vegetables. Each bowl is priced at P380.

In the mood for wraps? Here’s a new store that has just launched in the metro: Faasos, which boasts of various wraps that are quite filling in their own ways. Its flavors on the menu include meatball, teriyaki, salted egg, and buffalo chicken, among many others, with prices ranging between P210 and P250.

Should you find yourself craving steamed pork buns, Chowking’s Chunky Siopao Asado is the way to go. What makes this a great option is that it no longer comes with a separate sauce that you might spill on your work desk. Enjoy it as is or pair it with some chips for a more satisfying snack.

Have a delightful week, everyone!
