Taipei-App-based ride-hailing giant Uber's food delivery service Uber Eats has gained traction since it was launched in Taiwan in November 2016, according to data released Wednesday by the food delivery service.
The number of Uber Eats' restaurant partners has risen to 3,000 in the first year following its launch, and its delivery workers have traveled just over 1.01 million kilometers over that time, the company said in a statement.
The most common cuisines delivered in the company's first year of operations were Taiwanese-style delicacies, followed by Japanese cuisine and Italian food.
Chicken was the top food item ordered by Taiwanese customers, Uber Eats said, with Taiwanese "popcorn chicken" (salted crispy chicken) the most popular, followed by a chicken and rice combo styled after New York street food, and Korean barbecue, the company said.
The most commonly delivered beverage was red tea with milk, it added.
