Uber Eats is getting ready for the 91st Academy Awards! In anticipation of the star-studded ceremony, which will take place in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 24, the food-centric delivery app announced that it compiled a list of the most-ordered items inspired by Oscar-nominated films to help users curate the ideal viewing-party menu.
The award-worthy food lineup, which was revealed on Tuesday, February 19, includes an array of appetizers, main courses and desserts that channel everything from RBG – the nominated documentary about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg – to box-office darling Crazy Rich Asians, which wasn’t actually nominated for any statues despite its commercial and critical success.
So which dishes made the cut? For an appetizer, Uber Eats is offering The Drama Queen Roll from Mikado Japanese Cuisine in New Jersey. The Bohemian Rhapsody-inspired roll consists of a spicy tuna, avocado and crunch that’s laced with seared yellowtail, escolar, tobiko and sliced jalapeño, and then dressed with special spicy sauce and scallions.
Another available app is an international caviar flight, which is reminiscent of the lavish and expensive eats seen on the big screen in Crazy Rich Asians.
In terms of the main course, one selection on the menu is a Famous Star burger with cheese from Carl’s Jr., so you can feel just like no frills Ally in A Star Is Born. “This American favorite will have you humming the soundtrack,” the menu says of the food item, which boasts a charbroiled all-beef patty, melted American cheese, lettuce, tomato, sliced onions, dill pickles, special sauce and mayonnaise on a seeded bun.
Users can also order a dessert reminiscent of the kid-friendly film Incredibles 2, which is nominated for Best Animated Feature Film. The item – a fresh-baked Incredible Cookie from national chain Jason’s Deli – would surely earn Jack-Jack’s seal of approval. The sweet treat is billed as a “combination of different cookies’ superpowers that will reign over your taste buds.” It includes a combo of sugar, cranberry walnut oatmeal, chocolate chip and white chocolate macadamia nut confections.
Though not every food item mentioned above is available nationwide, (the menu is simply meant to inspire as you plan your Oscar viewing party), Uber Eats is promising users that delivery on Oscar night, which can be procured by using the app as you normally would, will arrive in 31 minutes or less.
Separately, the app is also offering a buy one, get one free deal from February 20-25, which allows users to get two dishes for the price of one. Let the eating commence!
