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 10 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 you are feeling blue from the new restrictions, perhaps some juicy burgers will be just the salve that soothes. Ashes Burnnit is where you’ll get one of the best hawker burgers on the market. After all, there’s no better feeling than wolfing down handmade burgers as we tide our time till June.
While Ashes Burnnit is available on various delivery platforms, doing a pick-up or take-away is where you get to snag the best deal. Of course, making sure you stay safe while doing so.
For pick-up or pre-order, make sure you Whatsapp the Ashes Burnnit outlet you’re heading to so they have enough lead time to prepare. You can find the numbers of the various outlets here.
Now, these are the extra treats you’ll enjoy when you opt for pick-up or takeaway. First, with a minimum order of S$20, you’ll receive one complimentary portion of a la carte Cheese Fries and Froissant. Then, with a minimum spend of S$40, get a Smashed Cheeseburger and Froissant set thrown in. Truly, bang for your buck.

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.
If there were anyone that knows how to serve up a plate of Western food, it would be Big Boys Sizzling Westen Hot Plate. You have all the classics here, from the Black Pepper Chicken Chop (S$8.90), Classic Batter Fish (S$9.90), and Signature Cornflake Chicken (S$10.90).
Not to mention, my absolute favourite and, dare I say, best on the island, Mentaiko Fries (S$6.50). Crunchy and covered in a punchy, salmon-pink sauce, you will want this all time.
Luckily for us, Big Boys Sizzlings Western Hot Plate has island-wide delivery, so it’s mentaiko fries all the time. Moreover, with the promo code ‘BIG20’, you’ll get to enjoy 20% off their entire menu. I know, get ordering and savour all that Big Boys has to offer; I promise it’s worth all the calories.
