One of the best things about living in Los Angeles. is the food. LA has some of the best food in the country, and as Angelenos, we’re lucky enough to get it delivered whenever we want.
Since the pandemic hit we’ve been ordering from Postmates more than ever, and we thought it would be fun to take a look at LA’s favorite restaurants to order from. Some haunts are obvious while others may surprise you, but the results are all clear: Los Angeles serves up the tastiest delivery hands down.
With over a thousand Angelenos marking Tocaya Organica as a favorite delivery spot, it’s safe to say you can’t go wrong with anything you order here. The most popular menu item? The Fajita Del Rey Bowl: sautéed peppers and onions, cilantro-lime rice, black beans, vegan chipotle crema, guacamole, and pico de gallo (the chef recommends adding chicken tinga and queso fresco).
We might be biased but we love Sweetfin and order it an embarrassing amount of times for lunch while typing away at work. It looks like we aren’t alone in our addiction, with a whopping 1.1K of you adding it to your favorites as well. The #1 order? A TikTok Bento Box: Spicy Tuna over bamboo rice, Yuzu Salmon over citrus kale, yuzu truffle avocado dip with taro chips, and chile ginger noodles.
Would this even be an L.A. list without Erewhon? We dare say not. We may be staying safe at home, but we aren’t going to miss out on the goods. Close to two thousand have added Erewhon to their favorites, with the grocer’s beloved White Bean Kale Avocado salad being the most ordered item, ever.
I guess we should write more. Over 4K of you have made this your top delivery spot and we can’t blame you. When you need comfort, or just a darn good meal, Canter’s will have it for you. Their most ordered items? It should come as no surprise that everyone is hot for some matzo ball soup and a hot pastrami reuben during these trying times.
We may not be able to watch sports in person, but as the Dodgers proved, watching them on t.v. still puts on a helluva show. When it comes to game-time snacking, Fat Sal’s has been an L.A. favorite for ordering, with 2.9K of you firing up your Postmates app to get mouth-watering menu items like the Phenomenal Philly Cheesesteak: thinly sliced ribeye steak, grilled onions and melted american all on a warm hero.
Anyone else over making their own coffee? Is it me or do the beans at home just taste sad? 1.2K of you agree and have made Alfred Coffee one of the hottest establishments in L.A. to grab a better beverage. Their most popular menu items to get delivered? An iced latte and cold brew.
Have you heard the good news? Postmates delivers more than just food, but convenience now too! Over a thousand L.A. residents have added Pink Dot to their favorites. The top items ordered? Marlboro Golds and White Claws of course.

The Amazon Acai Bowl and the “Feel Better” Shot: Lemon, Cayenne, Echinacea, Ginger, Himalayan Salt, Turmeric – an overall wellness tonic that packs a serious healing punch.
We opine that the burrito is the perfect quarantine food. Easy to store for leftovers, good any time of day, and always delicious. The most popular item ordered here? The OG Chicken Burrito: organic grilled al pastor chicken, sautéed peppers and onions, crema, pico, cheese blend, Mexican rice & black beans rolled in a 14 inch tortilla.
Fresh sushi delivery is a revelation that will never cease to amaze us. Nobu L.A. has topped the charts as one of L.A.’s most ordered from establishments, with menu items like Yellowtail Jalapeno and the Spicy Tuna Roll flying out the door.
Rounding out our list is of course, Hugo’s Tacos. It wouldn’t be a L.A. list without tacos, and Hugo’s has proven to be one of Postmates’ most popular. Whether you like ‘em soft or crispy, you can’t go wrong with their most popular order: the three taco combo.
