Out & About: Malaysia, Are you Ready for UberEAts?

With the launch of UberEATS in Malaysia, we are welcoming yet another food delivery company except that this one originates from the ride-hailing app, UBER. UberEATS, is a standalone app that is powered by the same pioneering technology that made ride-hailing a norm around the world.  Malaysians can now enjoy a myriad culinary experiences and greater dining choices at the comfort of wherever you’re located at, be it the home, office or even a friend’s house during a party! The possibilities are pretty much endless, all this with just a touch of the button.

For this initial release, there are only three areas which they deliver to — KL’s central business district, Damansara Heights, and Bangsar. Of course, we should expect the coverage to expand further in the coming days, so fret not if you’re not located within these region. I’ve had a browse on the restaurant partners of UberEATS and within seconds, I’m already salivating at the thought of having so much choices available. Can you believe that there are about 200 restaurants already on the platform, offering foods, beverages and desserts of different cuisine?

During the launch we were given a chance to sample the food from Stika Studio, a fine dining restaurant with the chef preparing the dishes right in front of us. There was also Inside Scoop ice cream for us to sample, along with the servings of Nasi Lemak Antarabangsa. It was definitely a fun night, filled with delicious meals as Malaysia have always been famous for - the variety of food choices available! And now, with UberEATS hopes to bring this food experience right to your doorstep, minus the hassle of queues and the jam!

If you’re wondering how long your order would take to arrive, it will be approximately 35 minutes from start to finish and the service will be available from 9am till midnight. Presently, there is only option to pay via credit or debit cards with the delivery charges at RM5 with no minimum order required. Additionally, UBER have also ensured that the delivery process satisfy the Halal requirements for both restaurants and consumers by working together with JAKIM. Halal and non-Halal food will be delivered in different carrier bags, which is a good initiative for our Muslim friends.
