Top Food Delivery Apps In Malta
The year 2020 the pandemic raged and it helped open up several possibilities to enhance convenience to us humans. Food delivery apps raised the freedom of choice to a new level for people hard pressed with time or those who wanted to enjoy a leisure meal right at home.
Food prices have risen over the years, one reason could be digital transformation– which could rank over inflation as well. Malta is no longer a cheaper option in Europe and it certainly is an additional price you pay for convenience.
Restaurant Delivery Via Bolt Food
Bolt Food delivery is pretty much comparable to Uber Eats that operates in over 6,000 cities across 45 countries. Bolt has a similar type of app and the manner of service is comparable too. The Bolt and Wolt apps put together has literally all the restaurants that operates in Malta included in their selection.
Bolt has an innovative notification setup and tracking process. After your order has been received, the app keeps you abreast regarding the status of the order at every stage. That is; when it’s being prepared, when a driver has been assigned, if the driver has other deliveries enroute, where the driver has reached and how soon he will reach you.
Bolt Food delivery serves more than 20 cities and most major towns surrounding these locations are also taken care of.
Some reputed restaurants that are available on the Bolt App are:
- TukTuk – TukTuk offers South Indian inspired dishes.
- KebabJi has a good collection of Lebanese food
- Manouche serves wonderful breakfast to all patrons in St Julians and has the repute of a craft bakery. It also produces some enviable pastries.
The number of options available (restaurants) on the app could vary from one location to another. So users are advised to download the app to ensure their favorite restaurants serves their location.
Order the goodies, track the progress as the restaurant prepares your order, know when the agent picks it up for delivery and see their exact location as they travel to drop it off point.
Bolt Food charges up to €5 for food delivery.
Bolt Food app has another ace up its sleeve, they deliver items of other categories too, such as:
Restaurant Delivery: Wolt In Malta
Wolt has seen a sudden rise in its adoption rate among patrons in Malta. The reason why people took time to take Wolt as a serious contender in the food delivery segment is because they find its features a bit less user friendly. One example being, there is no provision to include a note when you order for food.
I am sure you will agree, everyone has those little nuances when it comes to food, like “no garlics please” or “more cheese”.
This feature is literally a basic requirement in a food delivery app, but Wolt users do not have this option. But Wolt scores over Bolt with the number of clientele they possess in the app. Bolt does not have an expansive list of restaurants in comparison to Wolt. So Wolt certainly is doing something right and their PR strikes the right cord.
Some reputed restaurants that are available on the Wolt App are:
- Proscuiterria has the reputation for serving one of the best pizzas in Gzira. They maintain consistency in its preparation and the end result is a delectable pizza.
- Pastaus garners repute when it comes to making great pasta which they manage to deliver without much delay. Their commitment to serve pasta before it hardens is noteworthy.
Just like Bolt, Wolt also delivers items of other categories such as:
- Wine stores
- Home needs and interiors
- Grocery outlets and supermarkets
- Wenzhou Supermarket
- Greens Supermarket
- Beauty products, personal healthcare and makeup
