Best Delivery Foods for Your Memorial Day Picnic

Not your typical picnic fare

Anyone can pack a soggy sandwich and some chips and call it a day at the beach (or the park). But amplify your picnic experience with restaurant foods that are just too challenging to make on your own, but still super portable for on-the-go. We’re talking handhelds, finger foods and meals in durable containers that you can easily eat with a fork.

So whether you’re taking the family on a picnic, heading out for a day on the boat or at the pool, why not order delivery? Here are some unique delivery ideas to take on-the-go.

Empanadas

Bite Squad will deliver empanadas.

If you haven’t tried an empanada, they are baked or fried handheld dough pies stuffed with almost anything—but the most popular ones are savory with ground beef, seafood or cheese. The best part about them is you don’t have to worry about plates or plasticware. They’re the new sandwich!

Bibimbap

Korean delivery from Bite Squad

Bibimbap is a flavorful Korean dish with a healthy portion of rice topped with sautéed vegetables, chili paste and beef or other meats. A lot of times you can add a fried egg for extra protein, too.  Just grab a fork and you’re good to go!

Flatbreads

Lighter and fresher than a thick, cheesy pizza, flatbreads are the perfect outdoor food to cure that craving for carbs. Plus, with crisp, earthy seasonal veggies, they’ll put you in that summertime mood.

Fried chicken

Hey, it’s okay for summer foods to be crispy, greasy and heavy, too! And when we opt to eat hearty foods, we prefer a big ol’ bucket of fried chicken! It’s a messy finger food, so don’t forget the wet wipes.

Burritos

When you order a burrito for delivery, it’s always tightly wrapped in foil or paper. That makes it so easy to transport, and even easier to eat—just unwrap a little with each bite and everyone stays clean! And if a few ingredients fall out, who cares? You’re outside!

Picnic tips

Packing up all the essentials for your picnic can be a bit of a chore. But if you order delivery, you won’t really need to prepare that much. Having someone bring the food to you just makes life easier.

  • Make sure everything you pack is able to be tossed or recycled, so you don’t have to bring anything home with you.
  • Don’t forget the essentials: wet wipes, a blanket, sunglasses, sunscreen, bug spray and drinks and utensils (if your delivery order didn’t include them).
  • Avoid foods that melt, like chocolate, ice cream sandwiches and soft cheeses.
  • Avoid foods that spoil in the hot sun like sushi or mayonnaise-based pasta salads.
