With everyone staying home during the #circuitbreaker, we’re all eating a lot more takeaway. Here are the top food delivery apps and restos you should have on speed dial, including plenty of promos and discounts!
With circuit breaker measures in place, everyone in Singapore is now staying home for at least the next month. On the one hand, that means a whole lot more cooking (and online grocery shopping demand has gone through the roof, to everyone’s great frustration). On the other hand, the stay-home measures have done considerable damage to restaurants across Singapore (we saw one statistic saying restaurant attendance plummeted 90% during March!). From hawker stalls to bubble tea (who knew?) to Michelin superstars and everything in between, we all know Singapore is a foodie paradise, so it saddens us to see its F&B industry in such dire straits.
For both convenience and because we want to do whatever we can to #savefnbsg, we’ve put together our ultimate guide to food delivery in Singapore, including convenient food delivery apps and lots of special promos from independent restaurants (plus links to even more extensive lists). We’ve also included meal delivery services, which are kind of the best of both worlds — someone else does the cooking, but ensures you’re getting meals that are healthy, fresh, and can even be stored in the freezer!
Finally, please take a moment to consider how fortunate we are to be able to shelter in place at home with our families, and have thousands of delicious food options at our fingertips. According to the Community Foundation of Singapore, around 7,000 children in Singapore regularly depend on support for meals through programmes at their schools, and they’re now missing out on these meals due to the circuit breaker. Please consider donating to CFS’s Sayang Sayang Fund, which has launched a new meal programme initiative called “[email protected]” to provide disadvantaged students with support for their meals and ensure that children do not go hungry.
Read on for all our top food delivery picks, mama! And click here to see where to buy wine in Singapore!
Ketomei: Make your Keto or Low-carb life easy (and avoid the headaches of grocery shopping!) with Singapore’s first keto meal subscription service. Ketomei provides lunch and dinner six days a week, and takes pride in carefully sourcing quality, keto-friendly ingredients that are prepared in a safe and nutritious manner. They even make keto versions of local dishes; and meals are well-priced at around $10 each.
Use promo code SASSY to nab yourself an exclusive 15% discount! Plans are available in 1-, 3- and 6-week packages.
Fresher: These affordable, sustainable meals featuring all-natural proteins (at least 42g of protein per portion) and a line of keto-friendly recipes are designed for ease of use: they are blast frozen to lock in nutrients and freshness, which means they can keep for 4-5 months in your freezer, or up to 5 days in the fridge. This also makes it easier to order in bulk, which in turn helps reduce carbon emissions with fewer deliveries! The Fresher team works closely with nutritionists to design nutritionally-dense, perfectly portioned, filling meals (minimizing food waste in the process) that have made it a big hit with mamas around Singapore – we hear their hand-formed meatballs are a lunchbox smash. Take a look at their extensive menu (new original recipes added every couple weeks!) and just try to not start drooling…
AMGD: This meal delivery subscription service (the story behind the name is kind of funny) delivers healthy bowls and bentos that are freshly prepared right before drop-off to ensure delicious lunches and dinners.
While food delivery apps offer convenience and huge variety at your fingertips, do bear in mind that they take a huge cut of profits (up to 30%!) from restaurants, which is why we recommend ordering directly for from your favorite restaurant for delivery or takeaway if you can manage!
CapitaLand: Enjoy $5 off F&B orders across 16 participating CapitaLand malls with the promo code CLMALL5 on Deliveroo, foodpanda and GrabFood, from now till 7 June 2020.

Participating CapitaLand managed malls’ outlets include Bedok Mall Bugis Junction, Bugis+, Bukit Panjang Plaza, Clarke Quay, Funan, IMM, JCube, Junction 8, Lot One, Plaza Singapura, Raffles City Singapore, SingPost Centre, Tampines Mall, The Star Vista and Westgate.
Catersmith: Catersmith works with some of the top restaurants in Singapore (Artichoke, Blu Kouzina, NamNam) and while they normally focus on events for 10+ people, they’re now offering home delivery family meal sets for 3-5 pax.
Chope: They may be best known for their restaurant reservations, but Chope has leveraged their restaurant relationships to create a bevy of t=meal sets, takeaway and 1-for-1 deals.
Deliveroo: The biggest player on the food delivery in Singapore scene, Deliveroo’s easy-to-use app offers efficient food delivery from a massive array of restaurants, cafes and bakeries all over the island (with delivery availability based on your location). Delivery fees can be high (usually around $5), but we hear promo code STAYHOME15 will get you $3 off your order from select restaurants through 31 May.
Deliver.sg: This island-wide food delivery platform has no minimum delivery requirements, and works with lots of local restaurants covering Indonesian, Indian, Malay, Halal and other cuisines.
Food Panda: In addition to featuring over 6,000 restaurants (an exciting recent addition: Shake Shack!), Food Panda also offers supplementary services like pandamart (quick deliveries from convenience stores) and pandanow (24/7 grocery delivery). We like that the latter also includes wine from Wine Connection and flowers from Far East Flora. No more running errands for us!
Grab Food: Like Deliveroo and Food Panda, Grab Food has a wide array of offerings from across the island (Din Tai Fung is an exciting recent addition!). Other perks include the ability to pay in cash, with PayPal, and Grab credits (in addition to a credit card); you also earn Grab Points with purchases (and can apply points earned elsewhere, like when hailing rides). Delivery fees range from $3-$5.
SushiDeliverySG: Love sushi but worried it’ll arrive in less-than-fresh condition? SushiDeliverySG delivers super-fresh airflown fish prepared at one of seven kitchens around the island. Orders over $60 are free; otherwise there is a $5.90 delivery charge. Sushi is also delivered within 45 minutes.
WhyQ: It’s about time someone figured out how to help one of Singapore’s greatest assets – its hawker food – go digital! WhyQ has no minimum order requirements, and its delivery fee is a low $1.50. Simply enter your postal code to see what delectable hawker dishes you can have delivered straight to your door. We also love their initiative to gift meals to healthcare heroes. For the rest of us, use promo code STAYHOME for FREE delivery!
There are currently a number of campaigns and hashtags on social media where you can find independent restaurants to support. We highly recommend seeking out the hashtag #savefnbsg on Facebook or Instagram for more details; the food blogger Miss Tam Chiak has an extensive list going of hawker stalls now offering takeaway. The newly-launched www.dineinmovement.com is a collective of 40+ top restaurants (Burnt Ends, Tippling Club, Don Ho’s and many others) with all their delivery menus handily aggregated in one place. It’s definitely worth bookmarking if you want to treat yourself to a good meal, mama! Along the same lines, Trouble Brewing Company has launched an initiative called Adopt a Pub where, if you order from one of more than 20 popular restaurants (including Super Loco, The Beast, Cafe Melba and others) you can enter a unique tag that automatically sends a 10% donation to your favourite bar or restaurant.
Meanwhile, the Facebook group Singapore Restaurant Rescue has exploded to nearly 60,000 members; its aim is to showcase independent restaurants across Singapore (i.e. those that can’t afford to lose a big cut to the food delivery apps, or don’t normally offer delivery/takeaway options). Restaurants from across the island (and their devoted fans) have been posting notices all week – we love that there are tags by cuisine (Japanese, Mexican, Indian, etc.) as well so you can immediately find what suits you, no matter where you’re located.
Finally, if you’re feeling a little bit fancy, the Michelin Guide has put together a list of Michelin Starred restaurants in Singapore currently offering takeaway, delivery or even private chef services.
The list of restaurant delivery deals below is by no means comprehensive; it just highlights some of our personal favorites or deals that we thought were particularly compelling. We will be updating the list throughout the month as we receive more information.
