When it comes to proper Indian food in KL, you can’t go wrong by pointing to the district that bears the name “Little India” in the city – Brickfields.

Unfortunately for many of us who does use the car as mode of transportation, this area is also quite notorious when it comes to getting a parking spot. Not to mention about the traffic around the area during busy work week lunch hours.

For this reason, even though I’ve heard about Legend’s clay pot nasi briyani for quite a long time, I’ve yet to visit the restaurant to give it a try…. until I find them on the listing on GrabFood!

Working in KL, food delivery services such as GrabFood is really a godsend, no longer do we have to get confined to eating nearby the office, or worse, having to bear with the traffic driving out and try to get back to work within one hour (or two hours on Fridays but the traffic is even worse!)

It’s safe to say that many of us are familiar with ordering ride sharing services such as Grab, and thankfully using their app for food delivery is just as simple.

To start with, you can use the same credentials & payment methods on both apps.

Also, if you’re new to GrabFood, use KYSPEAKS15 promo code and free RM15 to your order, twice!

GrabFood app divide their offerings into different cuisines, and with each restaurant there’s also an estimated time from order-to-delivered timing, sometimes as low as 15-20 minutes.

Once you’ve made your order, a confirmation email will be sent out, and then there’s the fun part – you get to see the progress in real time – the order received at restaurant, food being prepared, rider picked up your meal, rider in transit, and finally arrival!

One of the coolest thing to me must be the way we get to see the riders delivering the meals in real time, on a map view with a moving icon and estimated time of arrival. This is an extra convenience for people who work in office towers that disallow delivery services to get into the building, we don’t have to waste anyone’s time by waiting downstairs, or having the riders wait unnecessarily. For residences though, you usually get the food delivered directly to your door step instead, even better!

The GrabFood network is expanding quite rapidly with more restaurant offerings as well as coverage in delivery area, do check it out on Android Play Store or Apple App Store.

Again, if you’re use to GrabFood, use KYSPEAKS15 promo code to enjoy free 2xRM15 to your orders.

September 27, 2017 14 Comments

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.
