Madrid, Nov 30 . .- Michelin-starred restaurants such as Gaitán or Yugo The Bunker, recognized as temples of the product such as Askuabarra or that have revolutionized the merger such as Soy Kitchen have joined inBite, a new platform for home delivery that It also offers to bring the entire restaurant experience home.
It is an initiative born as a result of the pandemic that has kept and still keeps many restaurants closed, as “a response to encourage the country’s economy,” says its director, Borja Boada, who indicates that this is a time “in which people He has discovered that he likes to be at home, meet friends, but they don’t always want to cook, and they are looking for alternatives to the ‘fast food’ “offered by the usual platforms.
With the experience developed at Fudeat, which brings together some of the best catering services for events and meetings in Spain, the promoters of inBite – which plays with the Anglo-Saxon words ‘invite’ and ‘in bite’ (in one bite) ) – They have Gastro Partners, a company specialized in transporting food in refrigerated vehicles, to make the delivery and guarantee their delivery “in perfect condition”, they explain to Efe.
“InBite was born as an alternative to the traditional delivery service” not only because it brings home menus and dishes from “first-rate” restaurants, but also because they offer “experiences” such as moving the chef from the chosen restaurant home or hiring a bar of cocktails or sake.
At the moment they have 14 restaurants in Madrid, although the idea is to grow to diversify an offer that also includes French cuisine from Le Bistroman Atelier, Mexican from Iztac, Hindi from Benares, Thai from Krachai, and American from La Gamella or the Chinese of El Bund, in addition to the Spanish of Por Fin or Amparito Roca, among others.
InBite covers towns within the M-50 in Madrid, “which is an opportunity for the capital’s restaurant offer to reach a larger population,” Boada points out.

Factbox: Why Singer's Killing Ignited Deadly Clashes Among Ethiopia's Oromo People
NAIROBI (Reuters) - The Oromo, Ethiopia's largest ethnic group, have long complained of their exclusion from political power. Many welcomed the 2018 appointment of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed but now some say he has not done enough for his community and question his credentials as an Oromo leader.
Why are some Oromo angry?
For decades, one party drawn from the northern Tigray region dominated Ethiopia's ruling coalition, fuelling Oromo resentment further south. A government plan to expand the capital using Oromo farmland in 2015 triggered three years of protests and bloody repression that eventually forced the prime minister's resignation and Abiy's appointment. Although Abiy has rolled out greater freedoms nationwide, parts of western and southern Oromiya are under federal military control, where Amnesty International has documented killings and abuses by security forces.
How have the Oromo expressed their anger?
Some powerful Oromo activists are publicly criticising Abiy, accusing him of pushing his new pan-Ethiopian Prosperity Party at the expense of Oromo interests. In October, Oromo youth demonstrated against Abiy in support of Oromo media magnate Jawar Mohammed in protests that killed 86 people. The insurgent Oromo Liberation Army has attacked government forces; the government also accuses them of targeting civilians.
How does that affect the prime minister?
Abiy's new Prosperity Party will compete in national elections that should be held within 12 months after officials say COVID-19 is under control. They were pushed back from August due to the pandemic. Abiy has promised the polls will be free and fair, unlike previous elections. But divisions in his heartland of Oromiya damage his chances; power in Ethiopia has traditionally come from the ability to command large ethnic voting blocs.
Does he face similar problems elsewhere?
Political leaders across the nation are courting voters and challenging the ruling party by demanding more land and resources for their own ethnic groups and redress for decades of government repression. In a nation of 109 million people with more than 80 ethnic groups, Abiy must treat challengers carefully: a forceful reaction could trigger a revolt, but permitting violence risks losing control.
