Merchant of the Week: El Triunfo

Living in the Northeast, it's not always easy to find really great Mexican food, but our our Merchant of the week, El Triunfo, is giving the residents of Boston just that - tasty, simple and downright delicious Mexican and El Salvadorian food. El Triunfo's food has made it a very popular, not-so-hidden gem in Boston's South End, but Mexican enthusiasts, there is no need to panic. Now, you can skip the lines and crowds and enjoy what your stomach has been rumbling for because El Triunfo is on Delivery.com!

El Triunfo, by the way, is Spanish for winner and the restaurant is definitely living up to their namesake. Unpretentious, yet with plenty of reasons to brag, El Triunfo offers fresh, savory and spot-on classic Mexican options. Popular favorites include the burrito, which comes stuffed with everything from carnitas to shrimp to zucchini fritters! Don't forget to open your minds and mouths to the El Salvadoran food as well, like Pupusa, Enchiladas and Tamales. 

Besides the food, El Triunfo's prices are so reasonable, it's hard to believe. Enchiladas with meat, fish or veggies are served with El Triunfo's classic toppings and a helping spoonful of refried beans for only $3.50!

Start browsing the menu on Delivery.com and order today to get a taste of some of Boston's best Mexican food.

A Little Bit of Paris in NYC

Ada is one of Delivery.com's new summer interns. Her recent semester abroad in France inspired her to search out some of the best French fare on Delivery.com. Check out what she found!


I just got back from 5 months in France, and after having French food on the daily I'm craving it wherever I go, at all hours of the day and night. Sadly, you can't easily find a half-decent creperie or a baguette sandwich here in NYC...without doing a little bit of searching, that is.

Luckily, here at Delivery.com we have countless renowned French bistros, bakeries and restaurants starting with "Chez" to order from. So if you're craving a Croque Monsieur, look no further! With this cherry-picked list of French restaurants, you can enjoy a little piece of Paris in the comfort of your own home, and maybe even satiate some nostalgia for "l'Hexagon". Bon appetit!

AOC Restaurant, 314 Bleecker St: This little bistro in the West Village serves up breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus a delectable brunch. Described by Zagat.com as "delicious French comfort food," order from here if you want a gourmet experience at a good price. The menu includes a long list of hors d'oeuvres - from home-made foie gras to the quiche du jour - soups, salads and an endless list of entrees that are quintessentially and deliciously French. And if that doesn't inspire you, AOC even includes some delicious burgers, sandwiches, and pastas.

Brasserie Les Halles, 15 John St: Ever heard of Anthony Bourdain? Yeah, well, Les Halles is his restaurant, with locations uptown on Park Avenue and downtown on John Street. The food served here is authentic French bistro-style food. Try the steak frites, accompanied by pomme frites fried in peanut oil. This, to be sure, is some true haute cuisine.

La Galette Cafe, 177 E 100th St: This little cafe mixes Senegalese and French cuisine. The food is hearty and the portions are generous. Try any one of the mix of French classics (salade Provencale, Croque Monsieur, frites, etc) or the Senegalese plat du jour, such as the Yassa aux Citrons (white rice with grilled chicken and onion, marinated in lemon juice, fresh herbs and Senegalese spices). And to top it off, you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing these dishes won't destroy your wallet.

Petit Abeille, 466 Hudson St: Petite Abeille in the West Village may actually be Belgian, but it still offers a great selection of traditionally French food such as salade Nicoise, fresh moules (mussels), and croquettes de fromage, plus a wide range of burgers (try the Petit Abeille burger, a fresh beef patty with bacon, lettuce and tomato on a brioche bun with their special sauce). And for dessert, the Belgian style definitely comes in handy when you check out their selection of beautiful Belgian waffles: with names like the Sugar Waffle, Banana Split Waffle and even the Dame Blanche Waffle, you know these waffles are serious biz.

PicNic Market & Cafe, 2665 Broadway: Serving up some serious eats for Francophiles, this little resto on the Upper West Side serves up what Chef Jean-Luc Kieffer calls "nostalgically French cuisine with a twist." Here you can find Alsatian classics such as Choucroute, Tarte Flambe and Spaetzle, as well as traditional French fare, like Cassoulet, Duck Confit, Beef Bourguignon, Coq au Vin and Cheese Souffle.

Sel et Poivre, 853 Lexington Ave: Sel et Poivre (Salt and Pepper) offers diners simple, basic French cuisine for much, much less than the cost of a ticket to France. For lunch, try an assorted cheese plate and Duck a l'Orange, or perhaps maybe Frogs legs Provencal or Calves Liver Lyonnais, if you're feeling adventurous. They also offer baguette sandwiches, such as Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil with Olive Oil, or Grilled Chicken, Lettuce and Tomatoes.

Order NYC's Best Sandwiches on Delivery.com

Whoever first put food in between two slices of bread (or tucked falafel into a pita) is a hero of the culinary arts. We can always turn to the trusty sandwich when hunger strikes, especially at the lunchtime hour. Luckily for New Yorkers' taste buds and empty bellies, Grub Street has compiled a list of the top 101 sandwiches in New York City, complete with mouthwatering photos. What's even better is that tons of the best sandwiches in the city are available to order from Delivery.com!

Grub Street's ranking features lots of sandwich shops that will deliver right to your home or office: order tried-and-true classics that your grandfather ate from Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop (their Tuna Melt hits #101) and Katz's Delicatessen (#14, Pastrami sandwich), or more contemporary fare like Num Pang's Cambodian sandwiches (Grub Street likes the Mackerel with Leeks, which comes in at #58 on the countdown). Also consider Peppers and Eggs from Defonte's of Brooklyn (#87) or the Cheesesteak from 99 Miles to Philly (#91).

If falafel strikes your sandwich fancy, order some Maoz. Maoz ranked as one of the best falafel joints in the NYC on Serious Eats' recent list. Maoz Vegetarian was started on the Reguliersbreestraat (try saying that three times fast) in Amsterdam in 1991, and after two decades has thankfully made its way to our little island.

Filling up on arguably the best meal eaten with your hands has never been so easy or delicious. Craving more sandwiches? Check out these other great NYC sandwich shops on Delivery.com.

  • Tebaya - The Chicken Katsu Sandwich, two breaded chicken cutlets slathered in miso sauce, won #69 on Grub Street.
  • Farinella Bakery - Try the Cuma, which Grub Street put at #74 for its "wheels of sublime smoked mozzerella."
  • Shorty's - Their Roast Pork Special hit #85 on Grub Street's countdown as "the thinking man's cheesesteak."
  • (V) Vegetarian Sandwich Bar - Pressed grilled sandwiches served on a white or whole-wheat Ciabatta with homemade spreads, which are freshly prepared every day.
  • Panini Tozt - Panini, NYC deli sandwiches, quesadillas, burritos, wraps, burgers, and Philly steaks!
  • America's Burgers & Wraps - Burgers, wraps, gyros, falafel, and salads.
