As we enter Phase 1 of Singapore’s safe reopening following the Circuit Breaker period, one might argue we will be going through one more month of the same exact thing. For four more weeks, members of the public are still not allowed to dine-in at eateries, and can only leave their homes for essentials, as per the past two months of Circuit Breaker.
It looks like our deliverymen won’t be having a rest soon, seeing as people will continue ordering and taking away their meals from various eateries in Singapore.
If you’re looking for mookata or a steamboat to share with your family during birthday occasions or celebrations, you’ve come to the right place. In this listicle, we explore 7 unexpected places that do delivery in Singapore for you to try out during Phase 1 of reopening the country.
Some of these eateries even provide the equipment for you if you need it. Even if you’re lacking equipment at home, you can still enjoy the delights of sharing and cooking a delicious meal with your family.
If you haven’t heard of the famous hotpot brand under Paradise Group, Beauty in The Pot, you might have been living under a rock. Widely known for their flavourful and nourishing broths, the fresh ingredients served at the joint will definitely tingle your taste buds while you’re enjoying it at home with your family.
They have been offering islandwide delivery since 28 April 2020, with many set deals for up to six pax. Ranging from S$78 to S$168 for the set meals, the ingredients provided include sliced chicken thigh, sliced Spanish pork collar, dried beancurd skin and many more!
If you ever find yourself craving bubbling hot creamy broth with fresh hotpot ingredients, don’t hesitate to order from Beauty in The Pot’s oddle page. S$5 delivery fee will be charged for every order with minimum spending of S$70. You’ll also receive a half portion of prawn dumplings for free if you spend S$70 on your meal.
Unfortunately, the pot and condiments will not be provided by the hotpot chain, so be prepared with your own steamboat equipment at home.
Fancy yourself some cheese with your barbecued meat? Cheese Story Mookata has got you covered. Hidden away at Golden Mile Complex, Cheese Story Mookata is no ordinary mookata stall. With a side “pocket” of the grill to hold the melted nacho and mozzarella cheese, it’s easy to dip the cooked ingredients in to get the delightful taste of the savoury cheese.
They’re offering set meals that cost up to S$69, which are inclusive of various poultry, seafood and vegetables. You can also add on many other ingredients for different prices if you’re up for it. Free home delivery is provided if you hit the minimum order of S$59.
What’s most interesting about Cheese Story Mookata’s delivery is that the stove, grill, gas, soup and sauces are all included in the set meals. Because many of us don’t own mookata grills at home, Cheese Story Mookata is providing you the experience of cooking your own mookata from the comfort of your dining room.

I’m sure everyone has heard of Chinese hotpot chain Haidilao 海底捞. Founded in 1994, the brand remains popular and well-known till date, with many singing praises about their quality of food and service.
Combining the best characteristics of hotpot joints in China, Haidilao has since been extremely successful and has opened 768 chain restaurants around the world. Their delivery menu consists of various fresh hotpot ingredients, from poultry to leafy vegetables.
Haidilao has been available for delivery on oddle, providing set meals that cost up to a whopping S$368 for larger households. This Chinese hotpot restaurant is known for being a tad pricey, so if saving money is of high priority to you, you might want to skip this one.
However, if you’re celebrating a birthday or a special occasion, consider enjoying a scrumptious steamboat dinner to bring the family together. Do take note that rental of the pot and induction cooker is not available during the Circuit Breaker period, but keep an eye out after 1 June 2020, when the Circuit Breaker is officially over if you’re in need of the equipment!

Can’t get enough of mookata? Siam Square Mookata is also offering delivery services with equipment for you to be your own chef at home.

A different take on traditional hotpots, Qi Xiang Chicken Pot offers chicken soy sauce steamboat with more than 10 spices and mixtures of sauces put together to form its signature broth. As you can already tell, it definitely holds more flavour than your typical hotpot broth.
The steaming hot bubbling soup is served in a claypot instead of the stainless steel pots with dividers that we always see at famous hotpot joints. With ingredients ranging from a whole chicken to shabu shabu meat slices, there’s no doubt you’ll find something that sparks your interest on their website if you’re a fan of hotpot.
There’s a delivery and collection fee of S$10 islandwide, with the stove, pot and utensils included in your order. Unfortunately, there aren’t any set meals available on their website yet, so everything you order is a la carte. Head on to their website to make your order, and visit their Facebook page if you’re looking for more information!
