This year has brought about unique challenges which have forced us to find creative ways to celebrate moments that matter such as Father’s Day. While virtual has become the new reality and keeping our distance from our loved ones has become a new expression of showing love for them, Uber Eats has put together a list of popular meals ordered during lockdown to spoil dad this Father’s Day.
A Superhero with a sweet tooth
Not all superheroes wear capes and shields – some are called Dad and they’re always on call for whatever crisis life throws their way. Whether it’s changing a flat tyre or doing the household chores after a full day’s work, we reckon they deserve a sweet treat to say thank you for all their hard work. Apple Pie, Chocolate Chip Muffin and the good old-fashioned Sundae have been the most popular sweet treats ordered, clearly showing there are many dessert fans. With a variety of stores on the app with delectable sweet treats, why not head straight to the final course and find a dessert that best resonates with your family’s very own superhero.
He spends his days on the treadmill, drinks protein shakes every day and he loves playing soccer with the kids in the backyard! Does this sound familiar? If the dad in your family is a fitness freak, or just looking to be more health-conscious, the app has you covered this Father’s Day.
While some might argue that summer bodies are cancelled for 2020, Uber Eats is still seeing a trend towards healthy eating, and even more so in lockdown.
In the past 2 months, the app reveals the Poke Bowl was the most ordered healthy meal. Overall, healthy orders increased by 71% from the beginning of lockdown compared to the first week of the year. Other healthy items that have been popular include Thai Crunch and Greek Salad, and local flavour Mango Achaar.
Movie Marathon Dad
For the dad that never misses a new movie or series, Father’s Day is the perfect occasion for an indulgent meal. Burgers, Pizzas and Ribs and Wings Combo from Dad’s favourite restaurant will be the perfect treat for his Netflix marathon session.
Soulful Session Dad
This dad’s favourite memories are the good old family get-togethers featuring old classic tracks such as Miriam Makeba’s Pata Pata or UB40’s Red Red Wine, while you prepared a spread for Sunday lunch and he was the resident DJ. This Father’s Day, you don’t need to slave over a hot stove or spend hours making canapes. Let Uber Eats help you relive these memories, while you spend time with those that matter most and pick out the right tracks to impress Dad. With such a variety of cuisine available to order there is sure to be a meal for your favourite man.
Dad the Explorer
This dad travels more than you do, and sadly with non-essential travel prohibited, he must be itching for a new adventure. Why not take him on a food adventure by serving him breakfast, lunch and dinner each from a different country. How does French Toast sound for breakfast, Burritos and Enchiladas for lunch and Green Thai Curry for dinner?
With social distancing a new way of life, Uber Eats is making the process of sharing the love of food easier this Father’s Day with its new “Share this delivery” feature. This allows you to easily send treats and share the status of delivery with a simple tracking link. Is there a better way to say I love you Dad with their favourite meal or sweet treat?
