With all the effects that COVID-19 is putting in the restaurant industry around the world, restaurants are scrambling and finding a way to serve their food in ways much different than we'd imagine. Takeout and delivery are what restaurants are commonly doing but some have opted to even provide make-at-home kits of some of their more popular menu items for guests to try and make from the comfort of their own home.
Here are the three I've been seeing on Social Media and definitely ones I'd recommend because the food from all three I'm about to mention is FUEGO!🔥
Pad Thai - Thai Chef Street Food
The crew over at Thai Chef Street Food in Dupont Circle are currently selling pad thai kits for $9 and it comes with the following ingredients for you to make from the comfort of your own home!
You can see all the ingredients and also contact info on the card above. Their owner, Chalisa, happened to make this for her social media and was nice enough to share.
Here's their contact info. I believe they are doing 10% off call-in orders for pickup. UberEats and other delivery platforms shave off 30% of the sales from restaurants so it would be extremely helpful to order directly from restaurants. Consider this!

Cheese Fondue - Stable DC
One of the restaurants that I've highlighted before the Washington Post and others is Stable. They've got two awesome guys Silvan and David running the show for their Swiss-American cuisine. My fave experience was the cheese fondue that you'll see in the image and video below.
Consider ordering their cheese fondue so you can enjoy it in the comfort of your own home. Their Instagram is telling us that you can take some homemade bread as well as Swiss wine and beer.
Can't find the pricing but I wouldn't imagine it to be too expensive.
