One good way is of course to have some chilled traditional desserts aka tang shui 糖水which is a lifesaver in such unbearable heat. The Chinese Potion is a newly launched home-based business selling such traditional brewed 糖水, prepared fresh daily and each bowl comes chock full of ingredients. Each of the ingredients used in the 糖水 concoctions is carefully selected to nourish the health and benefit skin rejuvenation such as snow fungus, peach gum, snow lotus seed, which aid in natural collagen production in the body.

Retailing at $6 per bowl, there is a total of 4 糖水 to choose from, with more information available in their Instagram page. My favourite out of the 4 will be the peach gum, which comes with diced apple cubes and the osmanthus which lends a floral aroma.

There is a minimum order of 5 bowls for each delivery and the delivery charge ranges from $7-$10 depending on the location. To order, simply WhatsApp to 9763 5766.

Now you can get food and beverages from SPRMRKT via the order link below and deliveries will be made across all of their three outlets. I had the opportunity to experience a few of the signature and new dishes from SPRMRKT’s all-day cafe menu for brunch this week, delivered directly to my home, and it is as good as dining in at the actual restaurant.

Pictured is the spread of food that includes a serving of Brussel Sprouts ($15), an excellent starter of charred Brussel sprouts with burnt corn and pomegranate in a sriracha mayo and Aburi Salmon Grain Bowl ($24) on a bed of organic Cambodian brown rice with tomatoes, avocado, poach egg over a ginger shoyu dressing. The ginger shoyu dressing is a smart way to give it an umami soya sauce flavour while ridding off any fishiness from the salmon. Additionally, the delivery also comes with the SPRMRKT Breakfast Platter ($28) and Tiramisu ($12). The former is the classic big breakfast served in most cafes and this version comes with a choice of two eggs, mixed mushrooms, two pork sausages with one being a chorizo, bacon, confit tomato, fresh greens and toast. The latter is the perfect ending to a meal with a tiramisu that’s made using a vanilla sponge that is soaked in cold brew coffee with mascarpone and cream. To wash it all done, finish with a bottle of cold brew which has been sweetened with honey.

During this period, if you wish to place a takeaway order, you can simply WhatsApp or call the respective SPRMRKT outlets in Dempsey Hill and Cluny Court before heading down to collect. For islandwide delivery, there is a delivery charge of $10. With just a few days left till 1 June, if you contact the outlets directly and place an order for takeaway or delivery, you get to enjoy a 15% off all ala carte items.

One such easy-to-prepare and comfort food recipe that we can all make is the Japanese curry. The ingredients are fairly easy to get and all it takes is less than 30 minutes for you to whip up a meal. To save time, you first boil some carrots and potatoes before cutting them up into cubes. Next, you heat up a pan with oil and stir-fry the meat (in my case, I used chicken fillet or you can even use minced pork), onions, carrots and potatoes for approximately 5 minutes till brown. Once that is done, you add water and simmer the ingredients till its fully cooked before you switch to low heat and add in the S&B Golden Curry Sauce Mix. Stir the mixture well till the sauce mix is completely melted down and it thickens slightly. The final step is to pour it over your preferred choice of rice or noodles, in this case, I used the udon noodles.

I was kindly gifted with two chiffon cakes, flavours that are not available in the market yet. One of the cakes is a Bakkwa Chiffon ($12 for 8 inch and $6 for inch), which at first came across as somewhat weird as we are used to having sweet chiffon cakes. However, all my doubts were quashed as the soft fluffy texture when you bite into the cake with the smoky aroma from the generous amount of bakkwa bits make it an excellent slice of chiffon. In addition, I also come to know that their bakkwa is handmade from pork hind leg and all the chiffons are made with 100% natural ingredients without any added MSG, preservatives, artificial flavouring or colouring. To balance the savouriness, there’s also the Sweet Potato Chiffon that comes with a tinge of sweetness from the chunks of purple sweet potato within it. All in all, the cakes were light and moist, perfect with a cup of coffee or tea. Besides these two flavours, the café also has Pandan and Gula Melaka in their menu.

The surprise didn’t stop there as the Bakkwa Pau ($5.40 for 6 pieces) was another amazement. Paying homage to the traditional char siew bao, instead of using BBQ pork, the soft bun is filled with the same smoky bakkwa. This is highly recommended to be in your steamer and the best part is that it is made with 100% natural ingredients without the addition of preservatives. You can check out the chiffons and pau from their Facebook page ( and enjoy free delivery when you order $30 or above. A flat delivery fee of $5 is applicable if your order falls below $30.

Biryani. The good folks at Mr. Biryani has put together two different set packages, in addition to their ala carte menu items; for takeaways and deliveries that you can enjoy at the comfort of your own home. Pictured is the Package A ($60 nett, inclusive of delivery fee) which is good for 2-4 pax. You get a selection of a starter, two biryani, two dishes and two naans which we chose the gobi Manchurian, Hyderabad chicken dhum biryani, boneless mutton biryani, butter chicken masala, paneer butter masala, garlic and butter naan respectively. Trust me when I say this, the amount of food will definitely fill you up. Even though there are some type of food that is not suitable for delivery as the taste might be compromised, you can rest assure that the biryani that we have gotten is still top notch and the perfumed spices, as you open up the boxes, will instantly fill the dining table. If you have seen my previous reviews of Mr. Biryani, you would have already guessed that it’s one of my top biryani spots and it still stays that way till today. If you prefer to order the ala carte items, do note that there is a $10 delivery fee is your orders fall below $60.

With several outlets around where I stay at, it’s not only a convenient option but the food clearly struck a chord with us. Even so when my friends from overseas visit Singapore, I have even brought them to try out PUTIEN before. In spite of this circuit breaker, that is not stopping us from having our favourite Lor Mee as they have introduced set meal options to their takeaway and delivery menu. For a set meal for 2 to a family of 4-5 pax, they have definitely got you covered, in addition to the other ala carte menu items that are also available for order. Pictured is the Meat Lovers Set for 2 ($42.80) which comes with all the things that I adore from PUTIEN such as the Fujian Lor Mee, Sweet & Sour Pork with Lychees and Spinach in Supreme Stock. This set also comes with 2 bottles of pearl barley with winter melon beverage. Fortunately, they are also still retailing their Spice Mum Chili Sauce ($7.40), which is an absolute essential condiment to your every meal. I will usually spam the chili sauce into my lor mee and hence, I will most likely need more than the given serving.

There is also an ongoing 20% off on all takeaway ala carte items and you can order via and indicate the specific PUTIEN outlet for pick-up.
