The COVID-19 pandemic has hit our food and beverage industry hard, forcing all restaurants to halt dine-in service. But by ordering pickup or delivery, you can help those still in service stay afloat. We’re now going to share some of our favorite local takeout, pickup, and delivery deals every Friday. So, if you’re up for a #treatyourself weekend, take a look at our list for this weekend below. And don’t forget to tip! Our hospitality workers need it now more than ever.


Several Thai Town restaurants, in collaboration with the Thai Town Council of Los Angeles, are offering dishes for just $5 through April 19. Participating restaurants include Crispy Pork, Crying Tiger, Pa Ord, and Sapp Coffee Shop, plus many others. Deals available for pickup only. See more details here. (You may also want to call ahead, as some restaurants are only offering the deals during select hours.)


Rosemead eatery Bánh Xèo Quán, a specialist in the savory Vietnamese pancake, has a takeout promo where you can buy three Vietnamese Crepes and get one free. Crepes are stuffed three ways: traditional (shrimp, pork, mushroom, egg, onion, beansprouts), fish, or a vegetarian option. Crepes are $12.50 each and come with the traditional sides of lettuce and herbs for wrapping the crepe in and fish sauce for dipping. They also do delivery (promo not applied) through Postmates.
