Sports fan or not, the Olympic frenzy is hard to escape. And it’s about to hit town soon as the 2022 Olympic Winter Games open on February 4. While Canadian athletes are making us proud in Beijing, we are making them proud by glueing ourselves to our screens. C’mon, who wants to miss out on a memorable moment? So, we thank all the food Gods for SkipTheDishes.

The Canadian delivery app that was decreed the Official Food Delivery App of the Canadian Olympic Committee is saving us yet again. While we binge-watch the games with our gang, SkipTheDishes takes care of all our food cravings. It is the largest Canadian food delivery app for a reason, after all.

This year, we decided to take the whole game-viewing experience to new heights. We are going to pick our meals and snacks based on our favourite sport. And then have SkipTheDishes deliver it to us.

Below is a list of our favourite sport-specific foods and the hottest places in town where you can find them. FYI, these restaurants are partnered with SkipTheDishes so you can have the food delivered to your doorstep without having to miss out on the action.
