So you read our blog and went through our Chinese Muslim food businesses directory. While some of us would make every attempt to travel just for food, a handful of us would rather save ourselves the trouble of travelling so much, preferring to have the food delivered to us.

But why do some people choose to have food delivered to them? Well, it can be any or a combination of the following reasons.

  1. Can’t be bothered to travel.
  2. No transport.
  3. The place has limited access to public transport.
  4. Not familiar with the area.
  5. No time to travel.

Undeniably, there could be other reasons apart from the ones we’ve stated. Then what would be the ideal solution? Lo and behold the birth of the new norm – food delivery companies!

Keeping up with the trend, quite a number of Chinese Muslim businesses have engaged these companies to provide food delivery services to their customers. There’s Food Panda, Grab Food, dahmakan, DeliveryEat.my, honestbee,  and so many other food delivery companies for them to choose from.

We’ll just run you through a couple of the top players.

Food Panda

Food Panda is one of the largest online food delivery service in Malaysia, operating in most of the major and smaller-tier Malaysian cities including Kuala Lumpur, Penang, and Johor Bahru.

Since they have a wide coverage and number of restaurants on their platform, this means they also have a wide variety of food choices – including you guessed it, Chinese Muslim food. Hurrah!

Need to order on the go? Download their app at Apple and Google App stores.

Personal Experience

We have used Food Panda in Johor Bahru and we absolutely love the service. The app is super easy to use, plus the delivery was quick. Our food was still hot when it arrived.

Look out for their promos!

Grab Food

Grab Food, from the same people that came up with the e-hailing service – Grab, is a fast growing food delivery company.

Similar to Food Panda, they too have a wide coverage and are available in Klang Valley, Johor Bahru, Melaka, Penang, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Kota Bharu, Kuala Terengganu, Kuantan, Miri, Bintulu, Negeri Sembilan, Batu Pahat, Muar, Alor Setar, Sungai Petani, Langkawi, Ipoh and Taiping.

Craving for something? Chances are, they will have that particular dish or cuisine listed on their platform. Just go on the app and you’re just a tap away from getting your cravings satisfied.

Personal Experience

We have not used Grab Food! Yes, that’s the cold hard truth. It’s not because we have anything against the company, more of, we hardly order food so we don’t see why we should download another food delivery app. We might download it later, just to try it out though. Will update this post if that happens.

Protip

No protip since we have never used it. But, but, but, we do know people who have used Grab Food and some use it regularly, like on a weekly basis. Their advice? Make full use of the promo codes. Those are a steal!

Writing about food sure makes the tummy rumble.
