Everything you need to know about new ‘drops’-model food app, DELLI.

Depop made waves in the fashion industry when it was set up in 2011 by Italian tech entrepreneur, Simon Beckerman. And what was there not to love about the app? Discovering small-batch brands, unearthing vintage gems, or even just opening up your own wardrobe to encourage a circular economy (and make a little cash on the side)… Depop can be fairly credited with having inspired the success of a slew of other apps – including FINDS, Vinted, and even our favourite interiors marketplace-on-your-phone, Narchie. 

And now Simon is back with a new app (alongside a founding team including the below pictured creative-turned-restaurateur Natalie Lee-Joe) and this time it’s for the foodies out there.

Meet DELLI, the new app for the food-obsessed. Hop onto the app, and you’re greeted with listings and images much like Depop – but instead of Y2K vintage, expect to drool over all sorts of funky foods: from coffee-flavoured Kombucha, to Korean chilli oil, to freshly baked bagels. 

The idea behind DELLI is that you can directly connect with (and buy from) food makers from London. There are options for delivery, which often serves nation-wide, but you can also input your postcode and filter to see only those from whom you can directly collect. Think of it like an indie-UberEats. 

In addition, a number of ‘bigger’ makers are treating it as a place to launch exclusive drops. AllPress Coffee, for example, is set to ‘drop’ a limited batch of its coffee roasts for those caffeine connoisseurs. 

And we’re obsessed with the variety of makers, totalling around 100, already on the app…

Hungry Buddhas

What is it? An Afro-Asian kitchen. Suki (pictured) was inspired by her own Jamaican, Ghanaian and Sierra Leonean heritage, and through sharing food with her British-Chinese fiancé, founded Hungry Buddhas – a tasty merge of cultures.

Try? Brown Stew Chicken Dumplings, or a Vegan Ackee Box (think plantain perfectly combined with stir-fried veg).

Araw Ice Cream


What is it? Ice cream flavours that’ll boggle your mind but make complete sense once you try them. Founder Keziah (pictured) was missing home over the pandemic and absolutely loves ice cream: enter, Araw. Small batch artisanal ice creams that draw from all over the world.

Try? Vegan Coco Raspberry Lychee.

Eat With Sp00ns

What is it? Indonesian bakes and treats. The brainchild of Rahel Stephanie, who was frustrated with how Indonesian food often seemed to be diluted in London – wanting to make sure that Londoners got a real taste of the country, and all whilst keeping it plant-based.

Try? Super fudgy Pandan Berry Blondies.

Lil’ Wong Bakes

What is it? Pandan Sandos (gorgeous, fluffy pandan-flavoured sponge sandwiches filled with fresh cream and summer berries), made by baker Sam Wong. Very clear that she’s making Pandan Sandos only right now!

Try? Pandan Sandos, of course.

Seasons - maker on DELLI app


What is it? Uber seasonal menu and bakes, by Naomi Blair Gould. Think the freshest of the fresh with everything from cheesecake to babka knots to hot cross buns.

Try? Wild garlic pesto knotted babka buns (pesto made from locally foraged seasonal wild garlic).

DELLI is taking over the Allpress Courtyard on Dalston Lane every weekend in August. Come check out the line up of DELLI Makers who’ll be serving up anything from Pandan sandos, dumplings to Indonesian cakes and bakes.
