McDelivery

15 Apr

More and more McDonalds in Japan have begun offering delivery service called “McDelivery“.

Does McDonalds offer delivery service in your country? Have you ever used it?

I have used pizza delivery, ramen delivery and sushi delivery…but I still have never used Kentucky Fried Chicken or McDonalds delivery?

What types of food can be delivered in your country?

And, just like the pizza, Kentucky Fried Chicken and other delivery services in Japan, McDonald’s McDelivery have company mopeds that are used to deliver the food.mcbike

    In Taiwan we have the McDelivery for several years now. We love it especially on Friday lunch time at work, it’s always nice to have a lil junk good to celebrate TGIF!

    I’m surprised about the ramen delivery since I would think the noodles would be soggy by the time you got it. 🙂

    Yeah, we don’t have that here but then I am at least 50 miles away from the closest McDonalds so doubt they would be too keen!

        Ireland looks beautiful, judging from the pictures I’ve seen … but I prefer the convenience of the big city!

        Are there any shops, restaurants, etc near you at all?

        Not eating fast-food often is better for your health.

        Yeah, I am from London originally and kinda miss it…there are a few small towns near us, probably around 1,500 people or so.

        No chain stores or fast food places though. Must admit that it is kind of refreshjing!

        I’ve been living in Tokyo for most of my life now … I’m quite used to it.
        I think I’d go crazy if I moved to the countryside.

        It is nice to visit such places though!

        Have you never been to Japan at all?

        If you get another chance to visit Tokyo, you definitely should!

    McD in Hong Kong has this delivery service for some time (two or three years?). I think there’s a minimum meal cost. The staff person gets HK$2 (JPY 25) per delivery. I’ve never used the service and, frankly, I can’t relate to it – why deliver fast food like McD in a small place like Hong Kong where there’s a McBongo on practically every corner?

      ¥25? That’s not very much!

      Are waitresses, taxi drivers, delivery people, et al tipped in Hong Kong?

      There is no tipping in Japan.

        Hmm, for practical purposes 95% of the time there’s no tipping.

        How do you know who to tip, and how much to give?
        And is it a problem if you forget to?

        I’m American but I’m not used to tipping anymore.

        @tokyo5: We in HK go by the rule of thumb – 10% tip if there’s no service charge. Who to tip isn’t too hard to figure out & mostly ‘playable by ear.’ If you forget, it’s no big deal here. But I can relate to what you’re saying – last time I was in the USA it was mostly a tipping-fest. Broadly speaking, China has become a tipping-fest place on the rise, unfortunately.

        That’s another great thing about living in Japan … excellent service and product quality- – and tips aren’t expected or even wanted.

        Three years in Shinjuku? So you know how convenient, and also crowded Tokyo, is!
