Tonight I’ve decided to write a little bit about an app that has vastly improved my life over the past few weeks, UberEATS – because who doesn’t love free food delivered straight to your door?
UberEATS is an on demand food delivery app, similar to some others on the market. However this is an extension of the Uber app (a taxi service in cities all around the world, including London), meaning it automatically pulls the same account details, so no faffing with signing up.
Thanks to a friend giving me her referral code I got my first meal (and subsequent other meals through using my referral code) completely free! Once you’ve downloaded the app, click on the three lines on the top left of the screen, then PROMOTIONS, add the code eats-thd9z, click apply, and voila, you’ve got £10 off your first order!
(You can refer your friends with your code too, find this out by clicking “FREE FOOD”)
The great thing about UberEATS is that you don’t currently get charged delivery fee, there’s no minimum spend, it’s all automatic through your bank account (so no fumbling around with cash), you’re not expected to tip (it even says that when on the check out screen), and they are incredibly helpful both on Twitter or via email if there are delays with delivery/food isn’t up to standard.
Although Vegan options are a little limited, I understand they are in the process of adding more restaurant options – however at the moment I’m pretty happy with the two I’ve found: Vantra Vitao & Wedge Issue Pizza – my orders have been rather tasty.
I hadn’t heard of this place before, so was a little dubious when I first ordered the “Living Lasagne”, but it was absolutely exquisite. The dish contains tomato, pesto, and seed cheese (whaaat?) all in thinly sliced layers of butternut squash! There is the option to have it raw or steamed, I’ve gone for steamed both times I’ve had it. I have also ordered the Pizette once which was a buckwheat pizza base with tomato sauce and seed cheese! This was good, however the base was incredibly chewy – not sure if it was meant to be like that or not, but it was delicious either way.
I can confirm that this is my new fave and I plan on visiting the actual restaurant on Oxford Street very soon… Might even blog about it? After some googling it looks pretty magical and very colourful!
As with the place mentioned above, I hadn’t heard of Wedge Issue Pizza either, but was incredibly happy to see that they had Vegan Cheese available as an option pizza! I went for the Clerkenwell Pizza (peppers, courgette, mushroom, onions, artichoke, sanmarzano tomato sauce, and vegan pizza cheese), substituting the courgette and mushroom with caramelised onion and roasted garlic. There’s also the option to add rocket for £2, which I went for as it nicely rounded up my pizza to £10 (which was free due to referring a friend), however next time if I’m paying, the amount they give you isn’t really worth £2 in my opinion. However it tasted great and I will definitely order from them again!
For £10 off your first UberEATS order, use the code: eats-thd9z (similarly if you’ve never used Uber before and want £15 off your first ride, you can use the code: thd9z)
In London, UberEATS is only accessible to people within a certain radius of central, you can check your postcode on the website (which also has a list of all the cities UberEATS is currently available in)!
