Tag / food delivery

I’ve been using dahmakan for over a couple years now. In the earlier days when they only offer lunch boxes, I used to do “group orders” with my colleagues every now and then.

These days, they’ve expanded to include dinner, and the menu too has expanded with combo sets, drinks, and more.

First, for readers of KYspeaks, use BETASTY063 to get RM12 off your first purchase.

So for those who is new to dahmakn, you may wonder how does it work and how it is different from other food delivery service?

Unlike delivery services that source food from partnering restaurants, dahmakan is an end-to-end provider that handles sourcing of local ingredients, to having in house chefs cook and prepare the meals, and finally having them delivered to your door step. They have a firm control every step of the way to ensure quality and service delivery.

Everyday, there’s usually over a dozen different dishes to choose from, usually with choices of dishes that includes chicken, fish, or beef prepared in either traditional, Western, or even dishes with a bit of Japanese flair. Do check out their menu online.

Ordering is as simple as a few clicks away on your web browser, or if you prefer, there’s also a mobile app on Android and iOS which also help track down delivery time and where the riders are currently at.

One of my favorite things about dahmakan is the way you’re able to schedule when the food is delivered. For example, I had mine scheduled between 6:30 – 7 pm and sure enough, it was delivered by 6:51 pm on my doorstep. This makes for easier planning to have them delivered right after you get back home, but not too early, or too late.

Most importantly though, when it comes to any food services, it’s the quality of food you get. Of the numerous orders I had with dahmakan, they’ve never disappoint. My most recent order of slow cooked beef stew and nasi kerabu were as good as any, and they were still warm when I got them too.

The beef were tender, soft, and properly seasoned. Nasi kerabu was served with plenty of greens, that signature blue rice, and a huge portion of thigh meat. They were delicious.

If you haven’t yet, check out dahmakan.com and do use the BETASTY063 promo code. Dahmakan currently delivers to most of Klang Valley.

For those who haven’t been keeping up with what’s trending in 2018, well, now you can order food to be delivered via the GrabFood app. I in fact do use this service quite often since having to deal with driving out/parking/walking under the hot sun can get to be a bit of a chore especially during a busy work day.

As mentioned, the availability of choices on GrabFood now includes many of our favorite local restaurants food that we would have to sometimes line up under the hot sun to get just a few years ago. Now with just a few clicks, we get to consume these awesome dishes right at home, or in the office pantry.

Personally, I was very happy that Soong Kee’s Beef Noodle was voted onto the list and is now available on GrabFood app. I can have one of my favorite beef noodles come to me instead of me having to walk all the way from KLCC to Jalan Tun HS Lee for a bowl of this wholesome goodness.

The properly cooked mixed beef parts are done just right, together with the minced meat in it’s special sauce, and the firm, delicious homemade beef balls, are just perfect for lunch, especially since I don’t need to leave the house on a gloomy cold afternoon.

Soong Kee beef noodle, yums!

The GrabFood platform will continue to grow, and I can’t wait for more of our local favorites to get on board. If you’re new to GrabFood and want to discover new local delights, use the promo code – KYSPICKS. You’ll get RM 15 off with a minimum spend of RM 20, eligible for one use only.

 

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 - ordering is easy as 1-2-3

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!

GrabFood - seeing your lunch coming towards you in real time!

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.

UberEATS is now in KL

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.
