Here we go again, am I right? A year ago, we were only just adjusting to the stay-home life, some of us learning to cook for the first time, others constantly fussing over what to order via delivery. Now, it seems like we’re here again, back to the delivery and tapau life.
Well, we could sit around and mope about it, or continue to enjoy some of our favourite restaurants via delivery and takeaway, made all the better with discounts and deals, especially for this trying time. Here are 15 restaurant and F&B deals for delivery & pick-up to turn that frown upside down.
It’s a shame that dining-in has once again ceased almost immediately after the highly anticipated Tapas,24 arrived in Singapore. No matter, for they have launched a special takeaway and delivery menu comprising the restaurant’s best sellers for diners to enjoy at home, with exclusive promotions that run from now until further notice.
Like its namesake, Tapas,24 focuses on traditional tapas with a twist, highlighting bold flavours. Travelling to Barcelona now might be a long shot, but bag home a piece of it with the toasted “Tapas 24” Bikini Sandwich (S$16) with black truffles, Ibérico ham, and buffalo mozzarella, as well as the Barceloneta’s Bomba (S$6), a deep-fried breaded potato ball with pork and beef filling.
Tapas,24’s selection of Spanish wines and Cava are also available at special prices for both takeaway and delivery from now until further notice, and bottles will be discounted by 45%.
Tapas,24 is currently offering free island-wide delivery for all orders over S$150, as well as all orders within a 2km radius of the restaurant. Otherwise, a S$10 delivery fee applies. If you’re alright to make the trip down, receive a 15% discount on all food and (non-wine) beverage orders when you pick up your meal.
Orders can be placed from 12pm to 9pm, daily via phone (+65 6513 6810) or WhatsApp (+65 9821 8471).
While I understand that many are frustrated at not being able to dine-in now, it’s great that we can still savour great fare thanks to the wonders of delivery. The Butchers’ Wife is undoubtedly one of the restaurants I can imagine that will be swimming in orders just about, forever.
For one, authentic and good Pão de Queijo (S$14) is so difficult to find in Singapore, so that’s definitely going into my order list, stat. We’ve also heard that the Chargrilled Spanish Octopus (S$37) and Chargrilled Wagyu Picanha (Aus, 200g) (S$42) are also absolutely to-die-for. And while you’re busy ordering just about every dip on the menu, don’t forget to add a chockfull of Pita Bread (S$10) to go with.
This all-day menu is entirely new and created for sharing, perfect to relish slowly with family especially in a time like this.
3. La Takorea
I can say with a fair amount of confidence that Mexican and Korean cuisine are amongst some of the best ones out there. La Takorea, a TiffinLabs-owned digital restaurant, marries the two beautifully—and what a service to mankind, truly.
Through a collaboration with contestants from The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition, the teams worked closely with TiffinLabs chefs led by TiffinLabs co-founder and President of Operations Shaun Smithson and TiffinLabs R&D Chef Terence Chuah, who has worked in some of the world’s top restaurants including Mugaritz and Narisawa.
La Takorea’s fusion fare features the best parts of my favourite cuisines in stunning, standout dishes. For the one who’s looking to have a tiny taste of everything, The Perfect Trio Bundle (S$37.99) lets you pick a dumpling, taco, and bao of choice. But of course when in doubt, always go for the best-sellers; La Takorea’s Bao Chicka Wow Wow! (S$13.89) which features three crispy chicken-stuff golden brown baos, and Loaded Kimchi Fries (S$10.89), that certainly can’t go wrong.
Those with plant-based diets will be thrilled to find TiNDLE chicken on the menu in the forms of the Swipe Right TiNDLE Taco (S$12.89) and Superlike TiNDLE Bao (S$15.89)—it doesn’t get any more inclusive than this.
Currently, La Takorea offers 15% off the entire menu on Grab and S$3 off delivery fees (min spend S$35).
4. Chen’s Mapo Tofu
Szechuan cuisine is just another amidst the long list of comfort food, and for convenient yet delicious Chinese fare, Michelin-Bib Gourmand Chen’s Mapo Tofu certainly makes the cut. The affordable sister concept of Chen Kentaro’s two-Michelin-starred fine dining restaurant Shisen Hanten, Chen’s Mapo Tofu marries the best of Japanese and Szechuan dining into reliable favourites like the Dan Dan Mien (S$12.80) and Shoyu Buta Don (S$15.80), which features a delicate onsen egg atop Chen’s signature szechwan spiced pork on rice.
For an authentic taste of modern Szechuan cooking, the Mapo Tofu Don (S$11.80) is an unfailing classic on the menu that’s a savoury-spicy blend to satiate any Chinese take-out cravings. Alternatively, round up those orders at home and go straight for the bundle deals that give all the more bang for your buck. Yes, Chen’s Signature Premium Family Bundle (S$68.90), I’m looking at you. It’s an ultra-worth-it celebration of rice, noodle, soup, vegetable, and chicken dishes that feed four pax.
Island-wide delivery is available on Foodpanda, GrabFood and OddleEats, but snag an eye-popping 20% discount off a la carte menu items when you self collect at their stores.
Enjoy free delivery with a minimum spend of S$80 and a discounted delivery free of S$6 with a minimum spend of S$50.
Chen’s Mapo Tofu is currently open from 10.30am to 8.30pm (last order 8pm) for take-aways and island-wide deliveries.
5. The Straits Refreshment Co
The Straits Refreshment Co‘s menu features well-adored local nuances with a refreshing twist, designed to keep our favourite flavours reliable yet exciting. Here, you’ll find the familiar hints of gula melaka, pandan, and coconut—ever-reliable, and always delicious.
Drawing inspiration from the ways of the Straits, you can count on these beverages to be carefully prepared, and to deliver a much-needed boost to your day. I’m particularly excited about the Pandan Milk Tea (S$5), because we all know how much of a kicker this perfect combination is. Other hyperlocal drinks you’ll find are the Straits Coconut (S$4.70), Chendol Shake (S$6.30), Avocado Milk (S$6.30), and Citrus Burst Oldenlandia (S$5.30), which are all guaranteed to bring indulgence right to your doorstep.
For something to really pack a sweet punch, their selection of desserts does just the job. Snag yourself the Coconut Panna Cotta (S$4.50) in a gorgeous shade of blue or the Pulut Hitam/Orh Nee Tarts (S$12 for six pieces)—bite-sized, and easy to eat.
And if you’re wondering about the savoury offerings, I’ve got just the thing. The Potato Salad with Green Apple (Straits Hippe Bowl Series) (S$11.90) is a fantastic vegetarian-friendly option, otherwise, Straits Refreshment’s Special Stay Home Bundles are definitely worth every buck too. Get a Straits Salad Bowl and an Original Coconut Milkshake for just S$11.90 (UP S$16.70), as well as other equally value-for-money options.
Straits Refreshment is offering free delivery on all orders amounting to S$45 and above, valid from now until further notice. Otherwise, delivery starts from S$3.99 onwards.
6. Permata Singapore
Here’s another place that also graced our shores very recently. It pains me to watch all these restaurants take the blow of tightened COVID-19 measures especially when they’re fresh into the market. But we’re certain places like Permata Singapore will bounce back, as they’ve already proven through their pivot to takeaway and delivery deals.
Permata brings the cheer of Nusantara cuisine into our homes, and with it, hearty and comforting flavours delivered right to your doorstep. The Ayam Lemak Chili Padi (S$20 for 0.5kg, S$36 for 1kg) sounds like a sure-hit at the dining table while the Mee Rebus Permata (S$15) is probably one of the few reminders that homely flavours don’t only have to come from mom. They’ve also got vegan-friendly options like the Vegan Nasi Sayur Lodeh Plate (S$15) for those on plant-based diets.
Permata accepts delivery and pick-up orders daily from 8am to 8pm, but do allow a maximum of two hours waiting time for delivery orders.
Any mention of Candlenut will never not be without our Editor-in-Chief, Zat’s, enthused gushing flooding my mind. For starters, I already know, off the top of my head, that his meal there is not complete with the Blue Swimmer Crab Curry (S$25) and the incredible Kueh Salat (S$25). In fact, I feel like I’ve already been well-acquainted with the establishment despite never having visited. I’d really like to though—the kueh salat buff in me needs to know life with such delight.
The Aunt Caroline’s Babi Buah Keluak (S$25) and Candlenut’s Buah Keluak Fried Rice (S$20) are also dishes that’ll definitely make it to my order list. For a saccharine finish, the Lemongrass and Pandan Cake (S$20) sounds awfully divine, on top of my kueh salat order too, of course.
For delivery orders above S$100, enter the promo code <FREEDELIVERY> to claim your well-earned free delivery.
Tsuta is long comfortable with the Singaporean food market, and is often recognised as one of the first few Michelin-starred ramen joints to set foot here. This season, they’re offering a 1-for-1 discount on their award-winning ramens and dons as well as sets for two that include two ramen or don, one maki roll, one appetiser, and two drinks.
Select from classics like the Tonkotsu Soba (S$18) or try something bolder with the Mala Tonkotsu Soba (S$18). The Niku Meshi (S$9.50), which is diced roasted pork shoulder on rice topped with a fragrant onion sauce, sounds like a perfect lunch without going too overboard, so don’t worry, you’ll be spared from the impending food coma.
As a low-carb forward restaurant, Persea definitely has my attention, coming from someone who’s been working hard at reducing carbs and sugars from her diet. It shines a light on better eating without compromising on taste, and boy, is that relief for my food-adoring heart.
I’ve already got my eye on the Foie Gras (S$28) with curry leaves, Turkish yellow spice, hazelnuts, pomegranate as well as the Persea Burger (S$28) which is built with grass-finished beef, lettuce, tomato, onion, house pickle, and a choice of the protein “brioche” or gluten-free almond bun. The very best part of Persea’s menu is probably the fact that each menu item is listed with a ‘nett carb intake’, so you’ll know exactly what you’re putting into your body.
Persea offers free delivery on orders over S$100. Orders are taken from 11.30am to 9pm every day, and during peak hours, deliveries might take up to two hours.

10. Restaurant Nouri
To quote Restaurant Nouri themselves, Michelin spelt backwards is… delivery. I mean, not exactly, but you catch the drift. Award-winning fare doesn’t only have to be limited to dining-in; it’s well within reach to set your tables and make a fancy stay-home dinner out of it, as long as you try hard enough.
As their ‘Lockdown Project’, Nouri is bringing downright tasty yet unpretentious fare to your doorstep, with burger sets that’ll transform your home into an American diner just like that.
The Perfection Burger Set (S$44) will get you a classic burger (burger patty, cave-aged Gruyere, heirloom tomatoes, lettuce, shallots), nori fries, and milkshake, while the Seoulburger Set (S$44) is the same, just that your burger is swapped for, well, the Seoul Burger of course. Alternatively, you might want to opt for the kombucha for a drink option that’s easier on the gut, or top-up S$4 more for a boozy milkshake to go with your set. And looking at the state of things, you might need that extra spike, after all.
Island-wide delivery is available at S$15, or order via the Grab app if you prefer.
11. mezza9 @ Grand Hyatt
Home to many great restaurants, Grand Hyatt’s well-loved offerings are now available for delivery and pick up. Particularly, you’ll be able to find mezza9’s grub on the hotel’s order page, so that feasting at home comes seamlessly.
We’re certain that the Wok-Fried Boston Lobster Noodle (S$58) is already going to be a popular choice across households, and the Wok-Fried Tiger Prawns in Szechuan Style (S$25) is a great option if you’re in keeping with the seafood theme. For more meat-forward options, go all out and treat your family to the Grilled Australian New South Wales, Angus Beef Porterhouse, 1kg (S$99) for a knock-out dish that’s sure to satiate.
On top of fare from mezza9, you’ll also be able to order from Grand Hyatt’s other restaurants like Pete’s Place and StraitsKitchen through the same landing page.
12. Hadouken by Tipsy Collective
Birthed during last year’s ‘Circuit Breaker’, Hadouken SG by Tipsy Collective is once again back in full swing with their delivery and take out menus. Backed by a myriad of already successful concepts, it’s almost certain that the fare you’ll be getting at Hadouken is nothing short of delicious.
For mains, I’m looking directly at the Crabmeat Capellini (S$18), Moonlight Truffle Horfun (S$23) and Kikosho Mala Collagen Ramen by Chun Li (S$23) that already sound power-packed with flavour. I’ve heard that the Wagyu Beef Cubes (S$18) are a crowd favourite, so be sure to pop that into your order list as well.
Island-wide delivery is available daily from 12pm to 9pm at S$10 for orders above S$30, and S$20 for orders below S$30.
13. Mimi Restaurant
When I first tried the fare at Mimi Restaurant earlier this year, I remember their Smoked Honey Glazed Cod being a particular hit with everyone at the table. While that’s not available for delivery and takeaway, there are a whole host of other great dishes that are.
For those who have folks with more traditional palates, the Roasted Duck with Foie Gras Sauce (S$26) and Grandma Lee’s Fried Rice (S$24), which is classic fried rice made with BBQ Kurobuta char siew, succulent prawns, and fresh free-range eggs, should do just nicely. Finish off on a sweeter note with some warm Red Bean Pancake (S$12) that will top your food coma off just nicely.
Mimi offers 20% off for all takeaway & self-pickup orders, and free islandwide delivery with minimum spending of S$100.
14. Restaurant Salt
Not too long ago, I gave Restaurant Salt a go, and loved how experimental every dish was. Owner Shermaine’s goal has always been to exit the norm—ever innovating, ever-challenging what we know. Constantly up to the task, she’s pivoted a great deal during this trying period, and the team is back with deliveries and takeaways, stronger than ever.
Restaurant Salt has tweaked its menu to not only travel well (so that your meal still tastes superb once it reaches you), but to also ensure that it’s flavour-packed to get you through the day. There’s the gorgeous Beef Tataki (S$26.90) that’s honestly straight-up art in a bowl, as well as the restaurant’s take on “Chirashi” (S$27.90) which is a mouth-watering meld of koshihikari rice, smoked albacore tuna, Tasmanian salmon, and roe.
As someone who will bag home anything prettily packaged in clear bottles, I’m particularly excited about the Cold Brew Coffee Bundle (S$56) that will get you one Black, one White, one Mocha, and one White Oat Milk beverage. Otherwise, the Cold Brew Non-Coffee Bundle (S$56) is great for those who love their teas and consists of one Uji Matcha Milk, one Uji Houjicha Milk, one Earl Grey Lavender, and one Fruit Vinegar (Seasonal flavour) beverage. Both bundles serve up to eight portions each.
15. NY Verden Bar and Grill
NY Verden Bar and Grill is another establishment that’s new on the block, and absolutely blew our minds when we paid a visit. Unfortunately, dining-in ceased all too quickly and hardly allowed enough time for new restaurants like these to fully flesh out.
Until 18 August comes around and we can be free and merry again, you can still get your fix of deliciousness through delivery and takeaway. Food deliveries are truly a wonderful thing—up until recently, the thought of having Vichysoisse (S$18), a pairing of slow-roasted leek and cream of potato, and Duck Rillette (S$10) which has been marinated and confit for 48 hours, in the comfort of your home was just a distant dream.
Moving on to their mains, NY Verden pulls out their chops by venturing outside their comfort zone with a series of Japanese-inspired bento sets. Take your pick from the Miso Salmon Bento Set (S$26), Beef Yakiniku Bento Set (S$25), Chicken Karrage Bento Set (S$20), Kabayaki Mackerel Bento Set (S$20), and Iberico Pork Jowl Bento Set (S$25) for a fulfilling meal that’s as well-balanced as it is tasty. And of course, if you’re feeling baller enough, the Wagyu Tomahawk Steak Dry-Aged 21 Days (S$250) will make any steak night as special as special can get.
