Nov 11, 2020 – FOOD DROP: Oak Park

Thank you to our west side Food Drop patrons. Over eighty orders validates you are among the most voracious of Chicagoans and gives us newfound respect on what it takes to reach our uptown locale in normal times. Keep an eye on our Events page for upcoming Food Drops.

Q: What is a Sun Wah Food Drop?
A: Our way of showing gratitude to our patrons by literally going the extra distance. Aggregated orders are brought out to a suburban location for an easy pick-up at a predetermined spot. For many, this means only taking a few minutes drive instead of a much longer traffic fight into the city.

Q: How does it work?
A: Once a Food Drop is announced on our Event Listing Page, there will be instructions to order and pay via credit card over the phone. A time and rendezvous location will be indicated.

Q: Where are all the service charges and fees?
A: Sun Wah Food Drops are executed by our own staff. There are no third-parties to whack the restaurant with a 30% cut or penalize our patrons with a 25% charge. There’s no “reservation fee” or “Chicago fee” piled on. A Food Drop order of any size only incurs a modest $5 surcharge toward covering gas and our staff’s labor.

Q: How is Sun Wah able to streamline the event?
A: Transactions are paid and finalized during ordering. Food Drop staff can focus on fetching your order. We’ve adjusted our arrival window by 30 minutes in hopes of avoiding the absolute worst parts of rush hour traffic. And finally, a streamlined menu providing listing of the favorite and frequently ordered items avoids bogging down the expediting process.
