Editor’s Note: Updated with notable restaurants on May 12

California’s shelter in place order has temporarily transformed restaurants used to dine-in customers into hubs for takeout. In light of these challenging times, the following notable places are now available on DoorDash. Note that menus may be different from their dine-in counterparts, with family-style meal kits or a smaller, pared-down selection of delivery-only options. Hours are often scaled back. We’ll continue to update this story in real-time as additional restaurants of note become available on DoorDash.

Gen Korean BBQ House

Although there are five locations of this all-you-can-eat Korean barbecue spot in the South Bay, this location on Hostetter in San Jose is the most popular. 

2 Meats + 3 Sides + Steamed Rice

While you currently can’t get in on any of Gen’s all-you-can-eat action, the restaurant is offering a generously-portioned plate for only $10—less than half of what you’d pay for a normal AYCE dine-in experience.

Naschmarkt

The South Bay’s only Viennese restaurant has reopened its doors to serve takeaway versions of its Austrian plates.

Beef Goulash

Naschmarkt’s Hungarian Beef Goulash—braised beef shoulder served warm with buttery spätzle and cool sour cream—is a classic.

Rita’s Italian Ice & Frozen Custard

While there are plenty of fro-yo shops in the South Bay, you have to head to Rita’s if you want regional specialties like Italian ice and frozen custard. 

Italian Ice

Here Italian ice, which is finer than shaved ice but not as fine as sorbet, is made daily with fresh fruit.

Hand-Scooped Frozen Custard

A favorite in the Midwest, frozen custard is denser than traditional ice cream due to its higher egg volume.

Fleming’s

Main Filet & Lobster Three Course Dinner

Even a pandemic can’t stop special celebrations. Splurge on a three-course dinner featuring an 11-ounce filet mignon, North Atlantic lobster tail, a salad, and cake for dessert.


Nirvanaah! Sunnyvale

In addition to a variety of traditional Indian desserts like kulfi, Nirvanaah! also offers dozens of ice cream flavors. 

Double Scoop

Choose from a wide array of flavors, from Chocolate and Sugar-Free Pistachio to Blueberry Cheesecake and Alphonso Mango.

Hukilau

This longtime Hawaiian stalwart is now on DoorDash, available daily from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Spam Musubi

Perfect to eat on the go, on the beach, or at home, Spam Musubi—grilled Spam, sandwiched by two slabs of white rice and belted by a strip of nori—is a classic Hawaiian snack that highlights the island’s fusion cuisine.

Naschmarkt

The South Bay’s only Viennese restaurant has reopened its doors to serve takeaway versions of its Austrian plates.

Beef Goulash

Naschmarkt’s Hungarian Beef Goulash—braised beef shoulder served warm with buttery spätzle and cool sour cream—is a classic.
