There are just some things we don’t want to do after a long day of kid-wrangling and cooking comes pretty high on that list for many of us. So for those times when slaving away in the kitchen means nothing more than getting out some plates and forks (or for when your helper is not around to lend an extra pair of hands), we give you the best food delivery options in Singapore.
For a hearty hit – The Shepherd’s Pie
We all know the feeling; the rain is lashing down outside, you’ve been stuck inside with the kids all day and all you want is something downright hearty – something like a good old fashioned pie. Well, ta da! The Shepherd’s Pie brings a dose of home cooked goodness right to your door with their utterly delish choice of chicken and beef pies. And at 9×9” they’re perfect for up to four people — or lots of hungry kids!
Pick up at various locations, delivery across Singapore.

In a hurry for a curry – Omar Shariff
Omar Shariff has got to be one of, if not the best, curry delivery restaurants we have ever tried. The food is always fantastically fresh (we are huge fans of the Pudina Chicken – chicken cooked in mint) and they are always just so darn friendly and obliging. With delivery that never takes more than 40 minutes, you can often expect a free treat thrown in for good measure.

Pick up a pizza – Peperoni Pizza
Ask any Italian where you get the best pizza in Singapore and they will tell you to give Peperoni a call. Using a wood fired oven, the pizza is thin and crispy while the toppings and tomato sauce is always beautifully fresh. No one trick pony, Peperoni Pizza also serves up delicious pastas and a wide range of appetizers including fried calamari, which is so good you’ll be hiding it from the kiddos so you won’t have to share.
Tempted by Thai – Thai To Go
We don’t know about you but there’s nothing we love more than ending the week by collapsing on the sofa (once the kids are tucked up in bed), with tv remote in one hand and Pad Thai in the other — and for those days when nothing tempts us more than Thai, we turn to Thai To Go. Super easy to order, you just put in your delivery postcode to work out your minimum delivery, choose from their range of tasty treats and voila – the perfect night in with the hubstar!

Busting for a burger – Cali Cafe
Hankering for a hamburger but after something a little more nutritious than feeding the kids… dare we say it… McDonald’s? Based in the foodie haven that is Rochester Park, Cali Cafe not only does one of the freshest burgers we have tried, the fact that they also have the likes of club sandwiches and baby back ribs makes it our new treat-day go-to.

If you’re in the mood for Mexican then Cafe Mexicana are the only two words you need to know mama – delivering fresh, crave completing dishes in under 40 minutes, you’ll wonder how you survived without it.
