Malaysians still get to enjoy Ramadhan dishes and snacks through Grab, as the company states that they are continuing to support local businesses and micro-entrepreneurs to thrive during the Movement Control Order (MCO) period. Grab’s Ramadhan and Raya based options include:
GrabFood Ramadan Favourites
You can find this section straightaway on the Grab app (iOS, Android) after you’ve pressed the ‘Food’ option as ‘Ramadan Favourites’. The section will show you the nearby shops with with ‘iftar’ favourites like chicken rice and roti john. Grab is also working with local state councils in Seberang Perai City and Perak to make Ramadan favourites easily available and delivered via GrabFood.
Grab Ramadan e-Kitchen
This feature depends on your location, so be sure to check because it might not work if you don’t live in the Selangor area. Grab’s Ramadan e-Kitchen is where you can get ‘Ramadhan Bazaar’ food from 10 locations across Selangor. The food is carefully prepared and packed with health and safety guidelines in place.
It’s important to note that Grab highly recommends users to order by 5pm, so that their food arrives in time for ‘berbuka’ and to also give delivery-partners time to enjoy their ‘iftar’.
To look through what GrabExpress can offer during fasting month, scroll down the front page of the Grab app until you find the section ‘Delivering from home-based sellers’. This is where you can order food further from your usual location.
All orders close 2pm daily, and deliveries will be sent latest by 5pm. Besides ‘buka puasa’ food items, you can also shop for Ramadhan and Raya items there like Raya cookies, an assortment of ‘kuihs’ and even ice cream.
