Uber entered the food delivery service in March 2016. Here are 10 Sydney restaurants that are signed up to Ubereats that will up the ante on that office party or desk-side lunch. 

Satisfy those crazy fried chicken cravings with a shoebox full of fried chicken from Butter. Image: Supplied
There is something devilishly good about the fried chicken from Butter, the Surry Hills storefront that sells fried chicken alongside sneakers and Champagne. This is chicken thigh dressed to impress, wearing a spicy red jacket that is best quenched with a slushie served on the side. Kick back in your high-tops with a bunch of mates to enjoy executive chef Julian Cincotta's streetwise incarnation of fried chicken and a tangle of shoestring fries. Vegos listen up: order the fresh ear of corn, which arrives anointed with a splodge of miso butter, and a 'shroom burger for a meat-free fest. Those with a love of food, fashion, music and culture take note: Butter has launched a new e-commerce streetwear concept store housing a range of sneakers and apparel. Butter, 6 Hunt St, Sydney.

The Italian Bowl
Part old-school Italian-Australian trattoria, part innovative eatery, the menu options on offer at The Italian Bowl run by Vince Muscolo and Alexi Spyridis let you choose your own adventure - allowing you to pick your favourite pasta shape and pair it with a sauce to suit. Tasting notes: give pesto with penne a go or fuse fettucine with an arrabiata sauce. Aside from pasta dishes, the chicken parmigiana, veal with mushroom sauce and king prawn risotto are hugely popular for those hankering for hearty meals. Stick with tradition for dessert and order the tiramisu.  255 King St, Newtown,       

The average time it takes to get a Love Supreme pizza delivered is 11 minutes and 39 seconds. And go! Image: Supplied
Love Supreme  
Love Supreme is the highly-evolved version of the much-loved Arthur's Pizza run by Vlad and Bosko Vujovic, who take the unleavened flatbread up a notch with 'with-the-works' toppings.  Follow the @lovesupremepizza Instagram account for updates to the menu and you will know that back on deck this week is the Gabo - Brussel sprouts, smoked bacon and a balsamic reduction. Pizza Sam demonstrates how amazing seasonal produce can be on a pizza: think pumpkin puree, sheep feta, smoked almonds and confit cherry tomatoes. 180 Oxford St, Paddington,

Seared albacore plays a starring role in this slightly spicy tuna poke from head chef Mark Jensen at Salmon & Bear.
Salmon & Bear
The first thing you need to know about poké, the Hawaiian-style sushi salad in a bowl, is how to pronounce it: it's pokay, okay? The second thing you need to understand about this island-inspired dish is that it has been reimagined with great effect by Salmon & Bear executive chef Mark Jensen. Say aloha to a poké with prawns in a lemon and coconut dressing served with edamame beans, avocado, cucumber, cherry tomato and snow pea sprouts. If your stomach is really growling, devour a Salmon 'BEARger' stuffed with cos lettuce, tomato, pickles, salsa verde and aioli.   6 Defries Avenue, Zetland,
Wrap your laughing gear around this whopper of a fried chicken sandwich from BL Burgers. Image: Supplied

BL Burgers
Chickpea and kumara burgers, pulled pork rolls with peppers and coriander, and a Blame Canada special starring maple-glazed streaky bacon on a beef pattie are just a few of the whimsical creations on offer at BL Burgers in Bondi. BL Burger's piece de resistance is the Classic Cheese burger, which head chef Allan Boque assembles on a St Malo Bakery milk bun with a beef pattie, slice of American cheese, pile of pickles, swirl of ketchup and slick of mustard.  BL Burgers and its big sister Bar Luca also serve first-rate fries. 1/151 Oxford St, Darlinghurst,

A feast of Syrian proportions at Almond Bar in Darlinghurst. #cookforSyria
Almond Bar
Almond Bar is a Darlinghurst gem that peppers its menu with updated Syrian classics that are close to the heart of co-owner sisters Carol and Sharon (head chef) Salloum. The Salloum family's passion for Middle Eastern food and culture is evident in the cooking, with all the food designed to be shared. Order an array of dips such as traditional hummus and labne, followed by pumpkin kibbeh, falafel, fattoush and tabouli. Carnivores will be kept happy with the shawarma and chef's Syrian duck. Watch Episode 10 on Food Safari Fire on SBS On Demand featuring Sharon Salloum. 379 Liverpool St, Darlinghurst,

The Guilty pleasure: a cocktail and a Calamity Jane hit the spot at The Guilty. Image: Supplied

The Guilty Take a billowy bun, filled with everything from American cheese and bacon to McClure's Pickles, add a calorific side of creamy mac and five cheese with pretzel bits and you will understand why The Guilty is in burger buzz feeds around the world.  The Weetbix fried chicken sandwich is - true to form - an absolute guilty pleasure. Chef James Hurlston (of Jimmy's Burger fame) also puts you through your paces with the Triple Kecksburger served with jalapenos and bacon. Eli's Ruby, an old-school Rueben that pairs pastrami with a kale kraut, is a slightly more virtuous option. 248 Palmer St Darlinghurst,

Butter up the boss with a selection of handmade Kakawa Chocolates. Image: Supplied

David Ralph and partner Jin Sun Kim, a chocolatier and pastry chef, know a few quick-fire ways to the heart: from hot chocolates to pralines and specialty slabs such as strawberry and pink peppercorn or chilli with dark chocolate. Dive deep into the Kakawa Chocolates menu to find ice-cream sandwiches, caramels and fudge or Easter-inspired options such as the hot cross bun, Peek a Boo Egg or pun-tastic Eggception. Getting a fix of raspberry and mint crisps and passionfruit rocky road is like getting a big hug from an old friend. This is chocolate as an art form. 147 William St, Darlinghurst, 
Friend or pho? Step aside soggy sandwiches. A bowl of steaming pho from So. 9 is just the ticket. Image: Supplied
So. 9
So 9 celebrates the inspired street food of Vietnam - from the toasted baguette known as banh mi to the coveted crispy banh xeo pancakes. Diners are asked to customise their own banh mi by choosing their own combo from the salad, roll and banh station menu where the flavours of pate, grilled pork, mayo, chilli and coriander sing of Southeast Asia. If you're feeling indecisive when ordering pho, go for chef Hien Pham's recommendation for a fragrant pho tai (noodle soup with sliced beef), which is your passport to Hanoi.  The eatery is named after the No. 9, a lucky number in Vietnamese culture. Shop 1, 18 Danks St, Waterloo,  

Get an order away on Ubereats for ACME and boom! It's there on your desk to enjoy. Image: Supplied
ndy Emerson, Cam Fairbairn, Mitchell Orr and Ed Loveday are the brains trust behind ACME, a restaurant that gives chef Mitchell Orr the creative freedom to cook contemporary cuisine that reads like an inspired mash-up of multicultural Australia. How about pine mushroom with pecorino custard and lardo?  Or strozzapreti with braised enoki and kale?  The squid ink malloreddus with calamari and broccolini hums with flavour.
60 Bayswater Rd, Ruchcutters Bay,
