I Tried UberEATS, and I’ll Do it Again!

It would seem as though Uber is one of those companies that comes into a city, disrupts the status quo, causes chaos, and then happily and merrily moves along to the next city. Along the way, they introduce new things business ventures that are usually just a slight variation on their tried and true model. Though UberPOOL – a way for ordinary drivers to arrange for carpools with complete strangers – has been in the news recently, what interested me more today had to do with food.

It rained today, and I really didn’t want to have to leave the office – wearing canvas shoes and heading to work without an umbrella weren’t exactly the best idea. I gave UberEATS a go today, and I’m sure glad I did. Plus, it was super easy.

Checking out the menu on the app, the first item there happened to be an amazing looking Smokey Steak & Cheese Pie from The Pie Commission. Yep. Sold for two reasons. One, this is one fantastic restaurant that’s located on the Queensway in Etobicoke near where I live. Two, I’m pretty sure this particular pie isn’t on their regular menu. Like I said, sold.

I confirmed my address, clicked the order button, and then just like requesting a ride through Uber, I received my driver’s name, car make and model, and licence plate. My steak & cheese pie would arrive in 5 minutes. FIVE MINUTES!

The pie was delicious. I’m so glad I gave UberEATS a go. This definitely won’t be the last time. The best part of it is that there’s new menu items every day. Yeah, you’ll be spoiled for choice.

Ready for Summer with Somersby

Somersby Canada glassware set

I was quite elated to see this notification from Somersby Canada the other day! Just last month my friends took me out for my birthday to Korean Cowboy, a restaurant near Yonge & Eglinton that specializes in Anju. In case you didn’t know (don’t worry, neither did I), Anju is the Korean word for foods that are typically consumed with alcohol. Korean Cowboy in Toronto also happens to have a Somersby and Soju special. The best way to drink it is in shooters, but I’m sure you could change the ratios around in your own version to makeĀ it easier to drink in a cup.

Anyway, I very much look forward to summer drinks – maybe even on a patio!
