Starting from this week, San Franciscans can get their meals delivered by Uber in 10 minutes or less between the hours of 11am and 2pm.

The new launch was christened UberEATS (for obvious reasons) and the experiment was designed with techies in mind. Unlike Grubhub or Postmates, UberEats has a designated menu of three different meals that you can get delivered lightning fast.

For example, you could have gotten a halal chicken sandwich from Ike’s, a chicken and avocado udon bowl from Ramen Bar, or an Indian summer salad from Dosa delivered to you today, so long as you were within the SoMa or FiDi districts.

The delivery fee is also reasonable, going for a flat $3 on top of an $8-$12 meal.

Several San Francisco institutions like Ramen Bowl, Ike’s Place, Mr. Holmes Bakehouse and Uno Dos Tacos have already signed on.

San Francisco is the 6th city to receive UberEATS. Why?

“San Franciscans expect more,” Uber communications team member Lauren Zapata said to Eater SF. “We wanted to make sure we got it right before UberEats launched here.” A wide variety of cities served as test runs, including L.A., Chicago, New York, Boston and Barcelona.

Uber threw in some surprises too — Chef Michael Mina and Chef Ken Tominaga hand-delivered udon deliveries to lucky patrons.
