Did you know that Momofuku Ando was the creator of instant ramen noodles? Me neither, until Expa (where I work) teamed up with the incredible folks at Momofuku + David Chang to create Ando - a new online, delivery-only restaurant. Soft launched previously, we are now ready to share Ando with you all (no more waitlist!) as long as you are in the current delivery zone. While I am a bit biased, this has to be some of the most delicious beta testing I have ever done. Do yourself a favor and try the cheesesteak - it’s so good! Want a taste of Ando? For this week only, we’re giving every customer in our delivery zone a free Ando Combo through our iOS app, which includes a half NYC cheesesteak, orange soda, and Milk Bar Mini cookie. Happy ordering!

@ericfriedman is this using UberRUSH for delivery?

Hey @chrismessina, correct! We're one of the early UberRUSH API partners (see our cameo in this video: https://developer.uber.com/docs/...)

@chrismessina @ericfriedman Ando is a big believer in delivery as a service and UberRUSH is helping us to power an amazing experience. Just like other product businesses that deliver in days/weeks use UPS/Fedex, I think that new delivery-based businesses will use UberRUSH to fuel their deliveries that are in the 24 hours timeframe.

@chrismessina We also developed an UberRUSH SDK for Node.js :-) https://www.npmjs.com/package/ub...

@ericfriedman Momofuku also invented noodles in a cup when he was 71. http://www.theymadethat.com/peop...

@chrismessina Uber disrupting itself by releasing UberRUSH is such a genius move. Ando feels like the perfect type of "Uber for XYZ" biz that can be built by using Uber. Good luck with this @ericfriedman.

@keesan might look at that 😉

@keesan @chrismessina this is awesome, thanks for open sourcing! Might use this module in the future :)
I just ate at Momofuku Friday and love love loved it. David Chang is a culinary god in NYC, so it's going to be especially cool when you a) don't have to wait in line for two hours b) will be able to get his food outside of NYC [and the select external locations he has]. The business model(s) of food in the US is by tech standards "undisrupted" insofar as there is high fixed cost without a focus on scalability. It's exciting to see an experienced, successful operator team up with a veteran, legendary chef. This is both going to be an exciting product as an end customer and a cool business to lead the next generation of food companies.

Love Momofuku. This is arguably the missing piece of the restaurant and food delivery business: a renowned restaurant and chef backed by modern day tech creating great dishes designed for delivery.

I've worked with Matt Keesan, the CTO, and he's one of the sharpest product / engineering minds I've ever seen.
