Restaurants with ZERO delivery fee

free-100

Hi again Shuttle Community. This week we decided to do something that we felt was very important.  We wanted to write our blog about some partner restaurants which decided to work with us on the monthly promotion that we have been doing for over 6 months now.  These restaurants exclusively allow us to deliver to customers for no delivery fee.  The only thing the customer has to pay for is the cost of the food! We think this is worth promoting, since we would always hear naysayers in the company’s beginnings say that no one would ever pay for delivery. This statement was found to be quite untrue, but we still believe that there are customers out there that paying a delivery fee inhibits them from trying the service.

So without much further ado; Here are the restaurants participating in our no delivery fee promotion!

First up is Belgrade. Belgrade originally found fame on the Korean TV show ‘Gourmet Road’ (식신로드)

Belgrade Bar&Grill debuted on the famous TV show ‘Gourmet Road’ and was introduced as the first and only Serbian restaurant in Korea. In the show, viewers find out what Jong Jun-Ha, Min-a from AOA, Park Ji-yoon and Lee Jae-Hoon think about Belgrade Bar&Grill.

Belgrade was opened with the idea of bringing the owners’ beloved Balkan cuisine to Seoul. Now with Shuttle Delivery it can arrive right to your door. Belgrade is very proud of their in-house cured and prepared meats, fired over a custom grill in true Balkan style. Experience tender Balkan Style beef, succulent pork, and juicy chicken dishes full of herbal flavors that tantalize your tastebuds. Welcome Belgrade to your home.

Next up is House of Wings. Their claim to fame is being focused solely on wings.  Wings are not considered the favorite piece of chicken for Koreans (They usually prefer thigh meat) so this was a bigger risk as a business in Seoul than it would be if opened in the States. This place focuses on high quality simple ingredients and homemade sauces to set themselves apart from pub grub wings.  The restaurant is owned by John and he has a great reputation as friendly and personable man. John has principles that he strives to abide by; He chooses ingredients based on sustainability and simplicity. He also uses only domestic fresh ingredients in his food and organic ingredients whenever possible.

His wings are categorized into world city names that represent the different sauces that Chef John creates. 5 flavors represented by these 5 global cities; Buffalo, Seoul, Roma, Beijing, and Bangkok. The Buffalo city wings do a great job of having a pretty traditional buffalo flavor with home-made hot sauce and butter. The Seoul city wings are sweeter and consist of soy sauce, garlic and red pepper flakes; Long-term Seoul residents will recognize the flavor as being similar to Korean style Sweet and Spicy (Yangnyeom sauce) Chicken. The Roma City wings are based on the recipe of the well known Parmesan and Garlic chicken eaten in the states. The Beijing City wings are based a bit on the American Chinese mainstay General Tso’s chicken with ingredients like Yuza Jam, brown rice vinegar, and chilli pepper. And the last variety of wings he offers are the Bangkok City wings; they have distinct Thai flavors, because ingredients like Thai red curry paste and coconut milk are used.

Next we have Persian Queen. Persian Queen gives you the royal treatment every time. Persian Queen is famous for its curry and taking an innovative approach to traditional Indian food with quality meats, vegetable, and spices. Dedicated chefs and owners make the dining experience at home or at the restaurant more fulfilling. One of the greatest Indian (North Indian) restaurants in Seoul but with just a cult following due to it’s small interior. It’s a very intimate place, perfect for a couple but it’s tiny so better just to get it delivered since there is no fee anyway 🙂

First Day of Summer

Today marks the official start to the summer of 2017, so congratulations, we have made it to another season! The official term to describe today as the beginning of summer is the summer solstice. The summer solstice typically occurs around the 21st of June in the northern hemisphere and is the time when the sun reaches its highest point of the year at the Tropic of Cancer, resulting in the longest day of the year. It’s a phenomenon which causes us to receive our largest amount of sunlight in one day.

heat-advisory

Even though summer only officially started today on June 21st, it was already starting to feel a lot like summer all around the peninsula. We were already getting warnings from the local media about a week before summer solstice regarding the avoidance of going outside if not absolutely necessary. Which is one of the many reasons that Shuttle Delivery was invented! The summer sun tends to make us more lethargic and so we should conserve our energy and have our food delivered to us.  Especially since the summer heat is much better enjoyed indoors with AC 🙂

summertimebbqtime

Summer is still one of our favorite times of year though. Not so much for the heat, which we truly hate, due to us spending most of our time on bikes buzzing about; but just the slower pace that everyone else takes and a much more fun attitude that everyone seems to share. There is also a lot of great food to enjoy in summer like  some creamy refreshing gelato delivered from our partner Zucca’s Gelato. The American summer classic, grilled burgers, are covered by ordering from spots like Left Coast, Bombs Burgers, Gilbert’s, I Am a Burger, and The Hike.  Plus we have so many BBQ joints! BBQ is also a summer mainstay and we have great options for delivery like Big Boy BBQ, Craftworks Taphouse, Manimal Smokehouse, and Rusty’s Smokehouse .
