Based on data tracked from March 1 to May 31, 2021, Singaporeans chomped through an average of S$32 on food delivery every day. As predicted, the number of people getting food delivered to their homes peaked in the first week of the Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) lockdown, with those between the ages of 25 and 34 responsible for 44% of transactions made.
Since it is unlikely we'd be able to travel for now, why not take a gastronomic tour instead and check out these F&B options the next time you order in?
Go for Greek 🇬🇷
Instead of dipping your toes into the sapphire waters of Greece, why not go for one of Blu Kouzina's homemade dips with a generous side of pita bread? While you're at it, be sure to order the ultimate in comfort food - Beef Mousaka, oven baked eggplant with minced beef and potatoes. Staying the East? Then check out the Cypriot pitas from Souvlaki Bar.
Taste of Taiwan 🇹🇼
A popular destination for Singaporeans, Taiwan's night markets are famous for their calorific street food and moreish desserts. Connoisseurs of the notorious smelly tofu should check out Old Tu Kee Smelly Tofu to get their fix. For something with a little more mass appeal, Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks won't disappoint.
Itching for Indonesian 🇮🇩
We've lost count of the number of times someone has gone, "I miss Bali!" Friends, we will be reunited with the island paradise soon enough. Until then, let's find solace in Bebek Goreng Pak Ndut's Original Crispy Fried Duck with Rice or Gado & Grill's Bihun Bakso.
Seeking some Spanish 🇪🇸
While it's relatively easy to find good Italian food in Singapore, the same cannot be said for Spanish. Our knowledge of Spanish cuisine seems unfortunately limited to sangria (it's a drink) and tapas (it's the general word for appetiser). So while we wait to fulfil that bucket-list visit to the Sagrada Familia, give our dreams the necessary sustenance with Micasa's Seafood Paella or order a selection of tapas directly on My Little Tapas Bar's website.
