Here we go again—not as fun as the Mamma Mia song; we are entering a new normal and hopefully only for a month. With the announcement of new heightened restrictions, dining-in has taken a pause. I know there go our dinner plans, but luckily for us, there is still the joy of deliveries and pick-up. We have rounded 12 hawker deals for delivery and pick-up because who doesn’t want some nasi lemak or bak chor mee bright and early in the morning.
The current measures are a little disheartening for sure, but we can take a little comfort in knowing that we have sort of been here before, and just like the last time, we’ll get through it. In the meantime, we will be stuffing our faces with the likes of chwee kueh and slurping on ban mian while we tide this storm.
There is never a wrong time for pizza, and even better if they’re from ButterNut. While the great debate between thick crust pizza and thin crust pizza rages on, for now, let’s put that all aside and appreciate everything we love about thin-crust pizza. The flavours at ButterNut might send pizza purists into a frenzy since the flavours here are hardly authentic nor mainstream. But, if it’s done well, who is to say otherwise.
There are still classics like the Mushroom Truffle Pizza (S$11.90) and (somewhat controversial) Hawaiian Classic Pizza (S$11.90) to keep us grounded. The more outlandish flavours include their signature ButterNut Chicken Pizza (S$11.90) which features hefty chunks of butternut squash with oven-baked chicken on top. If you want to step outside your pizza comfort zone, you can get these pies via delivery or pick-up.
ButterNut offers island-wide delivery, or you can always pop down to their stall to collect these pizzas. Not to mention, ButterNut offers 30% off for members, which is just the cherry on top. All you have to do is like their Facebook page, and you can enjoy their discount. You can do this online via Facebook advance order or just show the good people of ButterNut that you’ve liked their Facebook page.

With all the erratic weather we’re having, there’s nothing like having a piping bowl of anything to feel extra cosy. Well, if you’re missing the bustling streets of Chinatown in Bangkok, then Yaowarat Thai Kway Chap is here for you.
Unlike our homegrown rendition of kway chap, their Signature Thai Kway Chap (S$7.50) is much milder and more peppery than we are used to. To accompany your kway chap, get a plate of moreish Fried Large Intensive (S$10) and scrumptious Deep Fried Pork Belly (S$10). Don’t worry—all the home workouts are sure to take care of all those extra calories.
It only gets better; Yaowarat Thai Kway Chap offers free island-wide delivery with a minimum order of S$35. For takeaways, spend a minimum of S$15, and you’ll get a Braised Set for free; how great is that?
More information about their outlets and opening hours here.
If there’s one hawker dining experience we’ve missed in the current lack of dining out, it’s feasting on some crabs at a zi char. Tearing into luscious crustacean flesh while revelling in the cackle of the crowds and the clang of the wok? A truly Singaporean hawker experience.
Crab lovers will definitely have their interest piqued by Good Year Seafood’s irresistible deal—two crabs for just S$50! Weighing in at around 500g, these crabs can be done however you like them from classic black pepper, hearty claypot vermicelli or even covered in addictive salted egg.
Islandwide delivery is available at S$10 flat without any minimum spend, but then you can get your food in one hour for S$18 if you’re rushing for time. There’s also free delivery and even a free prawn roll thrown in with orders above S$200 in case you’re thinking of indulging in a huge spread. You can order here.
Perhaps there’s a silver lining in these new regulations with Ah Hua Teochew Fishball Noodle. As much as I love Ah Hua Teochew Fishball Noodle, the distance did make it a rather arduous trip. Nevertheless, the umami-laden Handmade Fishball with Rice Needle Noodles (S$3) is the stuff dreams are made of. Luckily for us, Ah Hua delivers, and now we can get these noodles at our doorstep.
The process is pretty simple, all you have to do is Whatsapp Jean at +65 88150716, and she will sort you out for self-collection and/or delivery. Depending on where you live, the stall will deliver accordingly with different locations on different days of the week. So, do plan when you want to have your bowl noodles accordingly. Yes, all the handmade Teochew goodies await.
I know, paofan has been on the rise lately, and even more so now. After all, who wouldn’t want a hug in a bowl? But, while there are many reputable paofan stalls, there is none like T.K Kitchen – Paofan Paradise.
Get their Signature Seafood PaoFan (S$38) that comes with crabs, prawns, and scallop swimming in a crustacean-y broth along with a serving of that signature crispy rice. For something a little more luxurious, the X.O Fish PaoFan (S$45) or the White Pepper Pork Stomach Chicken PaoFan (S$40) if seafood is not your thing.
With island-wide delivery of their paofan and zi char, you’ll be feasting like a king in no time. Their delivery fees go by distance, so if you’re lucky enough to live within two kilometres of T.K Kitchen, you’ll get free delivery on their wares.
After that, delivery begins at S$6 with a minimum of S$40. More information about their various delivery fees can be found here. Or, if you’d like to opt for self-collection, you’ll also get to enjoy 10% off the bill.
I’m all for cakes and glorious bakes, but I know I’ll always have a soft spot for chendol. Sweet, coconutty, and fragrant, a bowl of this beats any kind of sugary dessert. When it comes to chendol, it seems like only Old Amoy Chendol will do. At only S$2 for a bowl of Chendol, this is the most affordable dessert you’ll ever get your hands on.
Old Amoy Chendol offers island-wide delivery, so all you have to do is text +65 87487590, and this icy treat will be yours in no time.
Lemaq grew from a home-based business serving close friends and family to a hawker dishing out plates of Malay and Indonesian delights. I can’t begin to tell you about the snaking queues that you’ll see in front of Lemaq’s stall during peak hours.
Well, now you can get all of Lemaq’s goodness delivered right to your doorstep. Lemaq now offers bento sets of the day. So, you can take a look at their menu here and choose which bento you like. On Tuesdays, for example, Ayam Masak Lemak Cili Padi (S$5.50) while on Thursdays, sink to the likes of Sotong Masak Hitam (S$7). Otherwise, the Bento Daging Masak Hijau (S$6), Bento Ayam Masak Merah (S$5.50), and Bento Sambal Sotong Kering (S$7) are available daily.
Of course, if these bento sets are not your cup of tea, Lemaq has a whole menu of a la carte items for you to choose from. In addition, Lemaq offers island-wide delivery with a minimum order of S$15. Delivery fees start from S$3 and are dependent on the area you live in; you can get a clearer idea here. Just make sure you place your orders at least one day in advance, and you can enjoy all that Lemaq has to offer.
You know my deep affection for vadai, and you know what they say, there is nothing a little fried food can’t cure. For the uninitiated, vadai is a deep-fried dough fritter that’s sometimes affixed with a crispy prawn and to be enjoyed with a raw green chilli. It’s comfort food at its best.
You’ll want some of these with you as you binge on Netflix. The Vadai Shop is who you’ll want to engage. The Vadai Shop offers island-wide delivery at a now-reduced price of S$7. With their vadais going at only S$1 per fluffy piece and a minimum order of 20 pieces, I’d say go big and have them all at home. All you have to do is fill up the Google form here, and you’re golden.
I know all of us miss travelling dearly—there’s no question about it. And anyone would tell you the best part of travelling is the food. Well, maybe One Prawn Noodle with their Penang-style prawn noodles will soothe some of that wanderlust. You’ll recognise Penang-style prawn noodles from their intensely flavoured broth that is sure to send you to flavour town.
I’d say go for their Classic (S$6/S$8) for starters, which comes chock-full of prawns and tender-to-a-fault slivers of pork. Now, if you need a little something more, then go all out with the Supreme (S$12) that comes with the whole nine yards of prawn noodles.
One Prawn Noodles offers island-wide delivery at S$8 and free delivery for orders above S$100. You can order through this number, +65 9639 8668, and your bowl of Penang awaits.
The answer is LokBuLok, who bundle S$1 loklok sticks with a free bottle of soju, so you can wash down the grease along with the ennui of the current stay-home measures. Get your hands on either the 35-stick Combo A (S$35), 55-stick Combo B (S$35), or if you’re having someone over then you’d want to pig out on the 85 sticks and 2 free bottles of soju in Combo C (S$85).
What makes the deal even sweeter is that while there is a S$10 islandwide delivery fee for a minimum order of S$35, they deliver for free if you spend S$85. If all of that sounds good, then place your orders here.
What is more symbolic of hawker food in Singapore than Hainanese Chicken Rice? While many may contend on where the best chicken rice can be found, Sinn Ji’s name is often thrown around, in particular for their succulent poached chicken.
If it’s your first time trying, it’s a no-brainer to get some Poached Chicken Rice (S$5.10) or Poached Drumstick Rice (S$6.60) for a juicier cut of meat. But if you’re not one for rice, order the Poached Chicken Noodle (S$6.10) to get them to send some noods over.
Sinn Ji delivers for any orders S$30 and above for S$8 delivery fee, and delivers free for orders over S$50. If you choose to pick it up yourself, you can also enjoy 15% off your order. More details here.
Those working in the CBD will be familiar with this legendary fish soup establishment, offering clean, comforting fish soup at affordable prices. While you can’t slurp down a piping hot bowl of soup at the Arcade Fish Soup‘s shop itself, at least you can avoid the bustling crowds now.
If you’re feeling like you’re due for a cleanse from all the inactivity, the Sliced Fish Soup (S$7 regular, S$9 large) might be what you need. But if you prefer your fish soup with a bit more oomph, there are also the Fried Fish Soup (S$7 regular, S$9 large) and Mixed Fish Soup (S$7 regular, S$9 large) available at the same price.
With just a minimum order of S$20, they offer a very reasonable flat islandwide delivery fee of just S$4, while any orders over S$100 will get your fish soup delivered free of charge.
