Asia spots its first secret Ubers in Singapore!
There’s no better place for a man of many appetites to call home than Singapore. Extravagant nightlife, architectural splendour, and sophisticated pursuits taken with a dose of spicy laksa.
Who else to have a first taste of the newest delight than Singapore’s resident gourmand, Dr. Leslie Tay? Doctor by day and esteemed food critic of iEatiShootiPost by night, Dr. Tay is a connoisseur of the well-executed pairing. When transitioning from a long day at his clinic to a relaxing dinner, transportation is the last hassle that Leslie should have to face. Having discovered Uber’s arrival in Singapore, Dr. Tay pushed the button for door to door magic to begin: in less than 3 minutes, Albert and his Mercedes S Class rolled up, and they were on their way.
Quickest to the podium, it’s no surprise that star Singaporean swimmer and Paralympics medalist Theresa Goh was next to seize the way of the future. As the flag-bearer for Singapore’s Paralympics team in both Beijing and London, it was only fitting for Theresa to welcome the new standard-bearer for elegant transportation to her home city-state. A push of a button later, an Uber pulled up and sped her to the pool for her latest training session. Singapore’s Rider #1 has come and gone, bringing home a world class service.

A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
