Empty stomachs are mandatory while ordering takout at these international restaurants—passports are optional. Bon voyage!


Operated by Iron Chef-winner Jose Garces, his flagship restaurant boasts a rustic atmosphere and an authentic dedication to Spanish cuisine. Although you can’t visit the six-seat chef’s counter or private dining space, you can still order the vibrant dishes—from the lobster paella to the garlic lemon lamb chops—via Caviar online delivery.

Cafe Ynez

Boasting a blend of Aztec heritage, Spanish influence and contemporary Mexican cooking, Cafe Ynez is undisputedly authentic. They offer American favorites, too, such as fish tacos and quesadillas, and more traditional dishes as well—like cordero rack of lamb and pollo mole. Delivery options are available via GrubHub and Caviar.

Dim Sum House by Jane G

This mother-son-owned franchise is still serving delivery via GrubHub. Guests can choose between Shanghai and Cantonese style dim sum, including a range of options from beef-stuffed scallion pancakes to nutty dan dan noodles.


Chef Christopher Kearse is mixing things up at Old City bistro Forsythia. A daily changing menu dotted in French delicacies like potato leek with puffed grains, roasted sunchokes and campanelle is one highlight of the weekday mojo, but a special three-course weekend tasting menu with chef’s favorites is an even better way to mix things up.

Saffron Indian Cuisine

This North Philadelphia restaurant offers authentic Indian cuisine that feeds the whole family. Available for delivery via GrubHub, their paneer makhni is a fan-favorite blend of cheese, peppers and tomatoes spiced to perfection. Be sure to add one of their side dishes as well, like the garlic naan or vegetable samosas.


Specializing in authentic Korean cuisine, Korean BBQ and sushi, Executive Chef Chris Cho built his family business from a small shop in the Olney area to a bustling restaurant at the Center City One highrise. With delivery available via Caviar and GrubHub, customers can try their fan-favorite bibimbap from the comfort of their home.

Trattoria Carina

Fresh pastas and sauces are the name of the game at this neighborhood bistro. Available on Caviar, diners can pick portions that will feed two- to four people. If you’re like us, order the four-person portion—leftovers are never a bad idea.


For over a decade, Chef Hiroyuki “ZAMA” Tanaka has perfected his abilities as a sushi chef and entrepreneur—and it shows. The selection of fish changes daily as it’s imported from various global locations. You can taste the quality in each dish from the wasabi lobster roll to the citrus-soy-glazed salmon—which are available with free delivery on your first order via Caviar.
