Not only has technology revolutionize the way we interact, it has also greatly changed how we live, how we make payments, and how we purchase items every day. You can pick up your phone, connect to the internet and purchase electronics, gadgets, fashion items, book a taxi, make hotel reservations, purchase flight tickets and more.
The same can be done for food too. You can pick your phone, check out a couple of restaurants, their menus and order your favorite dishes without leaving the couch. The best part: it gets delivered to your doorsteps within minutes and you can pay on delivery. If you are ever hungry and you need to get food without leaving your home, here are the top food delivery platforms in Nigeria.
