Using Uber Eats

We ordered from Uber Eats tonight for the first time – Chinese from Jung’s Golden Dragon on Magazine Street. I had never been to the restaurant but it was the closest listed Chinese restaurant to my delivery location.

Michelle placed the order of steamed dumplings, crab meat rangoon, sesame chicken and General Tso’s chicken from her phone on the drive home from the New Orleans Fairgrounds and Racetrack. My cousin’s horse, He’s Dann Good, was racing.

Dann (#8) tried but came in 5th.

We specified order time from 6:30 to 7pm and received it 6:39pm. The app let us know once the driver was five minutes away and then when he was pulling up. We ordered curbside, so I went out to the car to get the food.

The dumplings were very good as was the sesame chicken. They gave us large portions of steamed rice and lots of extra sauces and mustards. Unfortunately, the General Tso’s was bland and the crab rangoon was more pastry than filling, although the filling was tasty. They also gave us 3 fortune cookies, so that was good, too. All in all, for not having to go out and for only a small delivery charge, it was a filling and very acceptable meal.

The app is easy to navigate and the selection of restaurants in my area (New Orleans) is pretty extensive. When you enter your address it lists the restaurants closest to you but also the option to search by restaurant name or type of cuisine. You then order from restaurant’s menu and complete the charge process for your food to be on the way.

We will be placing another order soon!
