The most important tool anyone has these days has got to be a smart phone. With the ability to summon strangers over the internet to help us achieve what we want, it makes us that much more efficient and makes life that much awesome.
Latest to the fray in KL is UberEATS, which is now available from 21st September during the launch event which I was fortunate to be invited to witness.
Update 2018: UberEATS has ceased operations in Malaysia
The UberEATS application is available both on Android and IOS. At launch date, the service is covering KL CBD, Bangsar, and Damansara Height from 9am to midnight, seven days a week.
If you live or work in these areas, it is most definitely something to check out. I suspect they’ll increase coverage area pretty soon, like how initial Uber service was launched.
You can already find quite a number of restaurants participating in UberEATS – from cafe food, Western delights, to nasi lemak, and even ice cream. I also particularly like how they can be sorted by type of cuisine, popularity, or most importantly – by delivery time!
At the launch event, we were also informed that UberEATS pay attention our unique local culture and came up with a different carrying case each for halal and non-halal food, which I thought is a good way to ensure cultural sensitivity is taken care of.
Download the app today and check it out. I also got a promo code for you, key in eats-7sy3s and get RM 15 off your order via UberEATS.
