I love hawker food simply because they are yummy, inexpensive and where else can I get chicken rice that won’t burn a hole in my wallet? I have to admit though, there are times when I get a bit lazy to walk to the nearest hawker centre to queue for food.
Add the sweltering heat and chope-ing of seats to the equation, food delivery undoubtedly makes it convenient and accessible in many ways.
We’ve made things even easier by compiling a list of Hawker Food Delivery Services In Singapore To Satisfy Your Local Food Cravings from your favourite stalls!
WhyQ is a food delivery app that brings dishes from over 1,800 hawker stalls island-wide right to your doorsteps whether you’re crunching deadlines at work or unwinding at home. You can get your food without any minimum order and at a low delivery fee of only S$1.50 per item. That’s how affordable it is!
Some of the popular hawker centres include Chomp Chomp, Maxwell, and my favourite, Amoy Food Street Centre. You could also pre-order your food a day in advance, at peak meal times, and up to 30 minutes before your delivery, without having to worry about getting hungry any time of the week. WhyQ delivers breakfast in selected areas too so you can enjoy your nasi lemak before heading to work.
It’s good for people like me who are simply lazy and want hawker food delivered to the office or home earlier. If you are looking for corporate catering (*hint Christmas*) get their corporate rate for as low as S$5 per person for company events.

3. Plum Food
Plum Food acts as a personal food curator, selecting the best restaurants and hawkers centres for you to choose from.
Snack on the tarts and cakes from Tong Heng, or gobble up truffle-infused rice bowls from Chirashi King Kong. With so many food choices right at your fingertips, you’re going to have a hard time choosing. If you are a bit fickle-minded and don’t know what to order, their daily-curated menu might give you an insight into the latest in-season food.
They have a reward system where you get S$10 off for every friend you refer — good food brings people together at Plum Food and there is no limit to the number of people you can refer.
There is no delivery fee too, but it comes with a catch: you’ll have to collect the food from the nearest designated pick up point.

Deliveroo provides options from hawker food to high-end restaurants, all easily delivered to your doorstep. Take note that they don’t have fast food restaurants on their list, but everything else is fair game.
My guilty pleasure would be ordering from New Hawa Restaurant over the weekend for my family. Butter sotong, lala, and mee goreng are some of our favourites for a hearty seafood feast. Mmm!
The good thing about Deliveroo is that you will know exactly where your rider is, from when the food is picked up, right up to when the driver has arrived. Now you won’t be left hanging, and wondering what happened to your order.
Do note that there is a minimum delivery charge of S$3. But psst, keep an eye out, because you can get delivery from certain restaurants for free! A minimum order of S$12 is required, so rally your colleagues or family members to order together. The more the merrier, right?
