ISO: good low-fat home delivery in downtown Toronto?

grilledcheese Mar 21, 2008 03:46 PM

I want home delivery, but I don't want the high fat of foods like pizza and Chinese.

Can anyone recommend some low-fat alternates in downtown Toronto?

    Not sure exactly which specific restaurant would be best- depends on where you live (downtown, I know), but Greek food can be a good low fat option and there are places that deliver- if you stick to a tsatziki sauce, grilled meats and fish, rice etc. just get any dressing on the side if you get a salad.

      Tabule delivers Middle Eastern food - grilled chicken kebabs, salads, etc., would be good bets. Also, I think that "Fresh" delivers their healthy vegetarian fare via Restaurants on the Go (or one of those delivery services). For home delivered quality sushi (never as good as sushi in the restaurant but sometimes I crave it), I'm really liking Fukui these days.

        www.orderit.ca has many restaurants to choose from with healthy options.

        Some sushi places deliver.

        And Swiss Chalet is relatively clean eating (you can look at their nutritional info online).

        You can dig about here for more ideas:

          agree with Rabbit. Sushi and Swiss chalet are your best bets. With sushi, your lowest calorie options are sashimi and miso soup, even some sushi as long as its not the cream cheese or tempura type. Just stay away from tempura and terriaky (sugar laden). For swiss chalet, obviously dont go for the ribs or fries, but if you take the skin off the chicken and pair it with the salad, you have a really low fat meal.

            Try the greek salad at Swiss Chalet - it's head and shoulders above the garden salad (though you may want to use your own low fat dressing; I suspect theirs may be high in fat).

              thats also a good idea. Using your own dressing assures you that the nutritionals are to your low fat standard

            Swiss Chalet is not low fat.

              it really depends what you get. If you look at their nutritionals online, it wouldnt be hard to put together a full meal under 500 calories.

            Not sure about the fat content, but favourite delivery recently has been Raashna.

              Indian is not really low fat, is it?

                What about that "healthy" Indian place...north of Bloor on Yonge. Veda, I think? I haven't tried it, but I keep meaning to. The website is http://www.vedatakeout.com/commitment... and they do deliver. If you try it, let us know how it is...at least it's a change from Sushi:).

                    That's a great suggestion. I forgot about it. I had their food and liked it.

                    Well if Swiss Chalet is being suggested, then I think Indian can have as many low fat options.

                      ha,ha. I just heard KFC is introducing low-fat "grilled chicken" to its menu. Oh wait a minute, they don't deliver (yet). Never mind.
