We're still green with envy from when we first reported on Uber's food and high fashion deliveries in New York, but it's finally our turn: UberEats launches in Australia today. At this stage it's only lucky Melbournians who can have their Pana chocolate and Rockwell & Sons smoked ribs home delivered, but Uber is quick to assure us there are plans to extend the service Australia wide.
Over 80 eateries have signed up for the Melbourne launch, including sweet treats mecca Burch & Purchase, trendy Supernormal, Greek fave Gazi, Lygon Street gelateria Pidapipo and health option Serotonin. In other words: all the delicious food you crave, that you couldn't normally order in. UberEats is available between 11am and 10pm in Melbourne and works much like you're usual Uber service - you can track delivery on the app instead of wondering how far away your food is while you slowly starve to death and drink more wine than you meant to (or is that just us?).
Delivery is currently free, but will shift to $5 once the dust has settled on the launch. You can download the app here: ubereats.com/melbourne.
