Best for Hawker Food Cravings: WhyQ

Best for Hawker Food Delivery: WhyQ (halal and vegetarian food delivery available)

WhyQ brings famous Singaporean hawker food to you for just $1.5! These hawker foods are limited to the region you are in (click here to check your region). From what I see, I could spot at least one famous hawker in each region. So no worries! Order ahead.

Do keep in mind that you’ll have to pay a small delivery fee if your total bill is below $12. You can also order between different stalls as long as they are within the same hawker centre. Hurray!

Special diet: vegetarian-friendly, halal (depending on the hawker centre near you)

Best Modern TingKat: Grain

Grain delivers clean, fusion meals to you via an on-demand or subscription basis. The latter being the “modern Tingkat” that I am referring to.

The good part is that they have vegetarian-friendly options and each meal is freshly cooked. The most awesome part is that they have Koi available (Yes, save us from this bubble tea drought)! Order in-advance to get the meal that you want!

Special diet: gluten-free, vegetarian-friendly

SGDelivery.Online offers islandwide delivery, but the delivery fee will be dependent on your location. On Mondays and Tuesdays certain locations will have free delivery, so do check their webpage for information. Minimum order applies as well.

Another local favourite -- Geylang Lor 9 Fresh Frog Porridge! Good news is that they deliver islandwide with a flat fee of $7. Order in advance to avoid disappointment!

Opening hours: Monday - Sunday, 12pm - 12am (delivery time within 5-10pm)

Best Korean Food Delivery: Seorae Korean Charcoal BBQ

Don’t settle for instant noodles to satisfy your Korean food cravings, do it properly! With Seorae Korean Charcoal BBQ, you can do so and enjoy free islandwide delivery by ordering more than $39!

To be honest, if you want to feast on good Korean food, your order bill tends to be more than $39. So hitting the minimum order shouldn’t be an issue.

Opening hours: Sunday- Thursday, 11.30am - 10pm and Friday- Saturday, 11.30am - 11pm

Best Sushi & Japanese Food Delivery: Sushi Delivery and Standing Sushi Bar

Best Sushi & Japanese Food Delivery Singapore: Sushi Delivery (islandwide delivery available)

Sushi Delivery is especially appealing to me because they promise to deliver your sushi within an hour, at a flat rate of $5.00, no matter where you stay. More importantly, if you think your sushi isn't fresh, they’d change it for you. Knowing that most Japanese food lovers are probably gunning for the sashimi, Sushi Delivery is a life- and tummy-saver. They also offer non-raw options for those who don’t enjoy raw fish!

I’ve also added in a local favourite, Standing Sushi Bar. Like Sushi Delivery, they also offer delicious Japanese food via islandwide delivery ($9 flat fee -- affordable delivery like how we all like it!). Make sure you order online at least 2 hours in advance to get it on time.

Special diet: vegetarian-friendly (Standing Sushi Bar)

Best Thai Food Delivery: Thai Accent

Best Thai Food Delivery Singapore: Thai Accent (vegetarian-friendly food delivery available)

Authentic thai food with just $5 delivery fee (islandwide delivery)! I've checked: Thai Accent offers one of the lowest delivery fees for thai food. They don’t really have a website so you can only view their menu through chope. To order, you’d need to call 6376 9282 or WhatsApp 9678 5854.

Opening hours: Monday - Sunday, 11.30am - 10pm (closes at 9pm during Circuit Breaker)

Special diet: vegetarian-friendly

Best Dim Sum Delivery: Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant

Best Dim Sum Delivery Singapore: Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant (supper delivery available)

Singapore classic favourite, Swee Choon, now offers islandwide delivery for just $5 (minimum order applies).

Opening hours: Mondays- Saturdays, 11am-2.30pm, 6pm- 6am and Sundays 10am-3pm, 6PM-6AM (closed on Tuesday; 10am - 1am daily during Circuit Breaker). *Orders after 9pm will receive an additional 15% discount -- great for supper delivery!

Best Indian Food Delivery: Khansama

Recommended by Namita, the founder of Indian Spicebox and author of two cookbooks (she recommends the chicken tikka masala and butter chicken curry)! Khansama offers free delivery islandwide. It opens till 12.30pm. If you are looking for supper delivery, consider trying this too!

Opening hours: Monday - Sunday, 10am - 12.30pm

Special diet: vegetarian-friendly

Best Birthday Cakes Delivery: Cat & The Fiddle, Fresh Fruit Labs and Sweedy Patisserie

Best Birthday Cakes Delivery Singapore: Sweedy Patisserie (islandwide delivery)

I’ve picked Cat & The Fiddle for its affordable delivery fees and awesome cheesecake (one of my personal favourites). Delivery fee can go as low as $6.90 if you order in advance.

In case you are more of a fruit or chocolate cake person, Fresh Fruit Labs also offer low delivery fee ($10). Their cakes have been approved by ladyironchef -- enough said.

Lastly, how could I forget the durian cake lovers! That’s why I’ve included Sweedy Patisserie, which is known for their Mao Shan Wang Mille Crepe. In the month of May 2020, as long as you purchase a whole cake, you can receive a 10% discount and free delivery.

Hope these suggestions trigger your craving for other food, apart from Macdonald delivery! I know Macdonald is great but do give other small eateries a chance as well. Think of it as a way to support them ;)
