Melaka is a rather small town in Malaysia but even so, some may opt for deliveries especially on weekends.
If you’re feeling too lazy or if it’s not convenient to go out, check out some of the delivery apps in Malacca.
Here are some of the better food delivery services in Melaka that you can try.
Disclaimer: I have not tried every single one of them yet, but they’re the more popular ones. Also, deliveries from specific restaurants are not included (e.g. McD / KFC).
FoodPanda is the pioneer or one of the earliest food delivery apps in Malaysia. They were more focused in big cities before this, but have recently started their service in Melaka as well.
The biggest downside is that it’s not available in the more rural areas in Melaka, just like most apps at the moment.
The user interface is quite simple. Check if your location is available first, and if so, choose the menu from the respective restaurants that are listed.
Payment is normally done online but there’s probably a cash option too.
It’s probably easier / more convenient to use their app to order food.
Grab is now a household name in Malaysia thanks to their e-hailing service.
They have expanded to many sectors including finance (GrabPay), food (GrabFood) and so on.
You only need to use one app for all of their services, including this food delivery service.
Just like FoodPanda, coverage seems to be lacking for rural areas at the moment. If you’re staying in town or close to town, you should be covered.
As usual, make sure you’re within the coverage first and then select the restaurants that are available.
Choose your food from the menu provided and complete the order.
3. Runningman MY
Runningman.my is the only service I’ve tried so far that sends to more areas in Melaka compared to Grab and FoodPanda.
Unfortunately, if you live in more rural areas, the choices are limited. The user interface isn’t as responsive as GrabFood but it somehow still works.
I’ve ordered from them a couple of times and each time the food came for sure. The main downside is the time taken on weekends, and the app / website isn’t as responsive.
That being said, if you’re not covered for delivery by other apps, check this one out.
Tabaogo is another food delivery service that is available in Malacca. I haven’t used their service before so I can’t tell if they’re good or not.
As usual, they have their own app that you can use.
5. Delivery Squad
Another one I’ve heard of before but haven’t tried is this Delivery Squad.
They seem to cover only a few areas of Melaka and a part of Nilai.
If you’re within the coverage, do check them out.
