Sparkle Bites: Kanguru PH Food Delivery

It’s finally Friday! One of the things I love doing on weekends is catching up on my favorite series. What are you currently watching? I’m super addicted to Jane The Virgin! I was crushing on Rafael in Season 1, but now, I’m crushing on the guy who plays Rogelio IRL. Haha, don’t judge :p

Sometimes I watch on Hooq, sometimes I watch on Netflix. The only constant? My face mask!

One of the challenges of staying in is ordering yummy food to binge on (I’m a very picky eater and I have insane cravings). On top of that, ordering delivery for just one person can get challenging—especially if the minimum amount is huge and the wait time is over an hour.

That's why I was thrilled when I heard about Kanguru! It's a new food delivery service app, which allows you to order right from your iPhone!

I like that I can shop for food via an app and just add things to my cart—as if I’m online shopping. It means that I won’t have to talk to a (sometimes cranky) rep on the phone or listen to promos being pushed.

Just download this from the app store (available for Philippine accounts only) and you're good to go!

It’s a new way of ordering food for the not-so-tech savvy, so I’m going to walk you through the process. Here’s how it goes:

After setting up your account and plugging in your address, the app will reco the closest restaurants in your area.

Most of the restaurants are in Makati or BGC, so if you don’t live near these areas, you might be disappointed. But don’t worry—Kanguru is expanding their delivery route, so just keep checking the app for updates. I think they deliver to the south and a few selected areas in Pasig/Kapitolyo now.

Once you select the resto you want, their menu will pop up. Just swipe left or right to see all the options.

Once you know what you want to order, just add it to your Kanguru pouch! And look, you can add special instructions and tell them if you want something placed on the side.

After placing your order, you review your pouch and just wait! Delivery takes about 30 to 45 minutes only!

When I first ordered, I was a bit discombobulated. It was too easy and I didn’t talk to a single person. I wasn’t sure if my order went through, so I was glad when I got this…

Text confirmations that Kanguru got your order! You can also call the number if you want verbal confirmation or need to change/add something.

So there! This is my new favorite way to have food delivered. I like that there’s no minimum charge to have anything delivered (you can seriously just order a Diet Coke) and they’ll charge you a small delivery fee for that (P79 to P99, depending on your total). And you can pay via cash, PayPal, or credit card, too! I just hope they add more resto options soon—like Juju Eats and Chatime! For now though, I usually order from Backyard Brew and Señor Pollo.

Yay, excited to eat and veg out!

Yay, my order arrived on time! I look so excited to eat and veg out—haha!
