Pacific Essentials: Tapingo


At the University of the Pacific, we love food. Bon Appetit, our food service provider, operates eight different eateries throughout campus. For students wanting something different, the city of Stockton has a wealth of food options available.

I’m not going to lie though, there are times when I don’t want to walk off campus to get a bite of something different. That’s where Tapingo comes in handy.

Tapingo is an app for getting food delivered from restaurants that might not necessarily have delivery. Ordering is fast and easy and your food will get dropped off wherever you are.

I’ve gone ahead and compiled a list of local spots that deliver through Tapingo. See something that makes your stomach growl? Download the app and place an order! Feel like walking? There’s an option for picking up orders as well.
