I can’t even begin to cover how much I’ve written and talked about plant-based diets. There’ve been debates, points of contention, but ultimately the science doesn’t lie. We need to start doing something about our diets if we plan to stick around on planet Earth for a while longer. So whether you’re looking to gift your vegan or vegetarian friend with some delicious yet diet-friendly food, or if you’re looking to skip on meat for just a meal, here are 6 F&B spots with plant-based menu items that offer delivery and takeaway.
1. CHIX HOT
Co-owned by Singapore Idol Season One winner Taufik Batisah, some might argue that chicken isn’t the only thing that’s hot at CHIX HOT. Okay, okay, I’ll keep it PG, I promise. Nevertheless, CHIX HOT has been crowned as Singapore’s best fried chicken by some veterans I know in the field, and not without reason. Their juicy, tender, yet oh-so-tasty chicken really is the stuff of dreams. Not only do they do their meats well, but their plant-based meals also slap equally hard.
Get all sloppy and messy (you’re at home anyway, who cares) with Quorn patty sliders slapped with overflowing sauces such as The Pepperjack (S$9.90) with its meat-free patty, pepperjack cheese, pickles, CHIX white sauce, as well as the delicious Soul Slider (S$8.90) that features a meat-free patty, slaw, pickles, CHIX pink sauce.

2. Green Common
Those actively involved in the meat-free lifestyle would probably be already acquainted with the plant-based playground that is Green Common by the Green Monday group. A celebration of all things plant-based, Green Common is a melting pot of the various meat-free options you can find.
From now until 13 June 2021, get convenient bento boxes delivered to you or picked up on platforms such as Oddle, Deliveroo, and foodpanda. More substantial offerings that are sure to keep you full include the Hainanese Trick’en Rice (S$11.77++, U.P. S$18++) and Aglio Olio with Gardein Fishless Fillets (S$9.42++, U.P. S$16++). If you’re looking for something just to quell the munchies, give the OmniMeat Strip Rice Dumplings with Porcini & Vegan Salted Egg (S$9.90) a shot then.
3. 2am: dessertbar
When we think of plant-based burgers, meats, and mostly savouries come to mind. 2am: dessertbar by Janice Wong, however, challenges the norm as they always do. They are bringing us plant-based as well as keto sweet treats so that vegans, lactose-intolerant, and everyone in between can still savour their own version of respite.
Four plant-based desserts have joined the menu at 2am: dessertbar, namely the Sticky Date Pudding (S$9 for a slice, S$45 for whole), Cinnamon Roll (S$20), Vanilla Almond Ice Cream (S$5), and Roasted Banana Ice Cream (S$5.50)—all made with plant-based milk and butter substitutes. If your diet allows for it, don’t also forget to try the low-carb, keto-friendly additions that include the likes of Matcha Basque Cheesecake (S$9 for slice, S$60 for whole), Lemon Pound Cake (S$6 for slice, S$35 for whole), and others, for a guilt-free time of snacking.

My best friend Yvonne and I stumbled upon REBEL when we were on the hunt for affordable bánh mì in town. After all, there’s very little not to adore about a crispy, airy short baguette stuffed with savoury meats and other garnishes.
Uniquely enough, they’ve now got the plant-based bánh mì—the MF Saucy (S$7.90)—which is made with Quorn Meatballs cooked in a rich tomato sauce, tangy Asian slaw, and fresh coriander. Though I personally love the Asian Po Boy (S$10), which features battered shrimp, mayo, sweet Thai chilli, tangy Asian slaw, and fresh coriander, Yvonne swears by the Saucy Rebel (S$7.90), which essentially has the same ingredients as MF Saucy, just made with beef meatballs instead.

5. La Takorea
La Takorea takes two of the best cuisines (well, in my opinion at least) and rolls them into a one-stop Mexican-Korean place for some of the heartiest fare around. Birthed from a collaboration between contestants from The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition and TiffinLabs chefs, the team has managed to take two typically meat-forward cuisines and included a couple of plant-based options for a more diverse menu.
Shop the Swipe Right TiNDLE Taco (S$12.89) and Superlike TiNDLE Bao (S$15.89); both made with new plant-based chicken, TiNDLE. So it’s a great change from the usual plant-based pork or beef that you’re used to seeing.
La Takorea is available for order on Grab and currently offers 15% off the entire menu, as well as S$3 off delivery fees (min spend S$35).
6. Quorn Home Delivery Menu
What better way to finish off this listicle than with offerings from Quorn itself, who has designed their very own home delivery dim sum menu because there’s no bad time for dim sum, is there?
Great as light bites or a guilt-free breakfast, Quorn’s dim sum menu features the likes of Quorn BBQ Bun (24 pcs/pack) (S$15.60), Quorn Shaomai (48 pcs/pack) (S$34.50), Quorn BBQ Pastry Puffs (24 pcs/pack) (S$20.50), and Quorn Japanese Gyoza (24 pcs/pack) (S$19.50).
