Video: A Day in the Life of a Dabbawalla Delivering Lunches in Mumbai

Daniel Klein 9 comments

Each day in Mumbai, a group of men called Dabbawallas transport 175,000 homemade lunches from Indian homes to their family members' offices. They carry the tiffens ("lunch containers") on their heads, on bicycles, on trains and even across the tracks to get to the offices where husbands and sons of the ladies who prepared the food are awaiting lunch. Despite the various modes of transport, the lunches always arrive on time. More

How to Get a Ride Home for the Cost of a Pizza Delivery

Slice Adam Kuban 1 comment

Experimental Domino's delivery vehicle. [Photograph: Hugo90 on Flickr] From the obituary of geriatric psychiatrist Gene D. Cohen in the New York Times today: In the opening chapter of his latest book, "The Mature Mind," Dr. Cohen related an anecdote that in many ways encapsulated his theories. His in-laws had arrived for a visit in Washington in the midst of a snowstorm and emerged from the subway lost. Unable to hail a cab or reach the Cohen family by phone, Dr. Cohen's father-in-law had an idea. He and his wife walked across the street to a pizza parlor, ordered a... More

Ambiance Is Not a Topping

Slice DJ Bubbles 11 comments

"It sometimes seems as if he's living in an alternate pizza universe—one where Papa John is Chris Bianco and ambiance should be a topping that you can order like fennel sausage." Mic check 1, 2, 1, 2. Bubbles B in the place to be. Comin' outta retirement to work ya like a fireman. What's good, sliceheads? I know it's been a minute, but I have to break you off with a little something. I made a move to the Upper East Side (it's not all bad—Central Park, Museum Mile, D'Ag hags) and can't say much for the pizza thus far,... More

Money Pizza

Slice Adam Kuban 2 comments

Money Pizza is an promotional concept for an imaginary pizza chain that sells a $5 pizza. The magnetic fridge-based coin keeper holds $5 in change. As its creator, artist Matt Brown, says, "The concept eliminates the shame people feel when they pay for something all in change. No counting involved with this, both cashier and customer know exactly how much money there is on that pie." Of course you're still left scrounging for the tip. [via EMD]... More

A Novel Way to Deliver Pizza in Paris

Slice Adam Kuban 1 comment

From the New York Times comes word of this charming-bordering-on-twee way of getting pizza delivery in Paris: By the water, there is a small pink dot of a helium balloon, bobbing in the intermittent breeze. The balloon is key. It was given to you by Pink Flamingo, a pizza parlor down the nearby Rue Bichat, whose bicycle deliveryman will use it as a beacon to locate you and present the five pies you've ordered (10.50 to 16 euros each). They're not all for you, of course—you've got friends to help eat the pizza and drink the four bottles of red... More

What's On Your Quarantine Food Wish List?

Carey Jones 16 comments

While the worst of this month’s swine flu hysteria seems to have passed, authorities in some areas are still exercising extreme caution. After a visitor to the Wanchai Metropark hotel in Hong Kong tested positive for the virus, the Hong Kong health department—still reeling from the SARS epidemic six years ago—decided to hold the hotel’s three hundred other guests for a seven-day quarantine. Finding the hotel food options growing stale, guests have started exploring their delivery food alternatives. And while some are relying on Pizza Hut, the Wall Street Journal reports, “French guests have taken it up a notch: Their consulate has arranged for French dishes like poulet à la moutarde to be brought in.” Oh, the French—always providing for...

Domino's Launches Line of Bread Bowl Pastas

Fast Food Carey Jones 41 comments

Carbophobes, stop reading. After a few months of testing the markets in Southern California, Domino's has just rolled out its Bread Bowl Pastas nationwide--"So good," the tagline goes, "you'll devour the bowl." Unlike Pizza Hut's recently launched Tuscani Pastas, delivered in enormous family-sized tubs, Domino's versions are individually sized: single-meal portions of chicken alfredo, primavera, mac and cheese, Italian sausage marinara, and chicken carbonara pastas, baked into edible bowls. And if none of these sound good, customers can build their own--starting with a penne base, you can top it with alfredo, three-cheese or marinara sauce, and add up to three meat or veggie toppings. Prices range from $4.99 to $6.99, and ordering online knocks off a dollar. If all... More

Pizza Delivery Hack: How to Get Drivers to Ring the Right Buzzer

Slice Adam Kuban 7 comments

This is a super-specific "hack" that applies only to apartment dwellers—and, more specifically, to apartment dwellers in buildings with very few units. Like, with two or three units. Anyway, I have a recurring problem. In my building, it's just me and my landlord. When I order pizza delivery, half the time the driver rings the wrong buzzer. Yeah, when I call I make sure to tell them, "Ring buzzer No. 1. IT'S THE TOP BUTTON." You'd think that would be direction enough, but often it's not. It's not a huge problem at decent hours, but late at night it... More
