Uber Eats today announces it is bringing its delivery service to Tsing Yi, the first of many district launches for the global food delivery platform this year. This year also marks a new way of life where food delivery has become an integral part of Hong Kongers’ day to day. Uber Eats has observed a shift in Hong Kongers’ eating habits after a full year of adjusting to new ways to work and dine.
“I am thrilled to introduce Uber Eats to Tsing Yi today, delicious food on demand is a convenience we believe everyone across Hong Kong should enjoy. My team and I are committed to investing with our partners and the F&B community to unlock more innovative and delightful food choices for Hong Kongers,” said Elisa Janiec, General Manager of Uber Eats Hong Kong.

Chinese New Year Celebrations Reimagined
During 2021’s stay-at-home Chinese New Year holiday ( from February 12 – 16 ), Uber Eats recorded a 50% year-on-year increase in order volume. One single eater walked off some calories and placed a self-pick up order of over HKD3,400 worth of pasta, ravioli, salad and starters! Another opted for an easy door-to-door sushi party set worth over HKD2,400 to ring in the new year of the Ox.
Healthy homey meals on the rise
Looking back on the past year, Hong Kongers have been adapting swiftly to new modes of working and dining.
The pandemic has caused hungry Hong Kongers to rethink and readjust our lifestyles. To customers on Uber Eats, health has become a priority. Uber Eats has see
n an increase (800%) in healthy food orders during the dine-in restriction periods – people are ordering more from vegan, vegetarian-friendly, and healthy restaurants available on Uber Eats. We also saw Hong Kongers start eating dinner earlier to 6pm and order 22% more food items per order to enjoy with their family in the comfort of their own home – a silver lining for employees who work with companies that are embracing the new work-from-home model.
Dim Sum is the ultimate comfort food
When it comes to comfort food, dim sum never fails. Bringing traditional weekend yum cha activity back home, customers are ordering more siu mai and shrimp dumplings, why let dining restrictions stop you from dim sum? The world travellers of Hong Kong are also missing their Japanese, Vietnamese and Taiwanese food, with Japanese food orders increasing tenfold year over year.
Hong Kongers have also been giving a lot more love and support to smaller brick and mortar restaurants around town – orders at small medium restaurants have quadrupled over lockdown periods.
The world pandemic has taught us the importance of reaffirming our love and appreciation to others. Uber Eats has recently launched a gift note feature for people to send the ultimate gift of love – hearty dishes – to their loved ones in town or abroad with a personalized gift note.
