From Burger Day to French Fry Day, Canada Takeout has been hard at work helping to support restaurants staying open across the country. It all started back on April 15 when they proudly launched #TakeoutDay. With its overwhelming success, Canada Takeout has since launched weekly food holidays to inspire Canadians takeout orders. Next up, World Day!
Celebrate the globally inspired flavours that your favourite restaurants have to offer and order takeout. World Day was created to recognize the diversity of our nation's restaurants — everything from popular food like Mexican, Japanese, and Italian to lesser-known cuisines like Pakistani, Turkish, and Hungarian. And if you're looking for the perfect bubbly beverage to accompany your delicious meal, Perrier Carbonated Natural Spring Water has been quenching thirst with crisp carbonation, no sugar, and zero calories for over 150 years, so it's always a refreshing choice.
If you're having trouble deciding where to order takeout from for World Day, here are 12 top-notch, worldly spots to help make up your mind and get your appetite ready!
