For those that like their soon kueh skin super thin, give this place a try! I prefer the bamboo shoot version ($2.50) as it has lots of hay bee (dried shrimp) and a more intense taste, but if you prefer less hay bee then go for the turnip version ($1.50). Each box comes with sufficient condiments (chilli and black sauce) - which is my main grouse with the other more purist soon kueh shop that is also trending on social media now.
.
BTW I'm very spoilt when it comes to soon kueh cos I'm used to eating the ones that my dad brings home from Jakarta when he travels there for work. I find the soon kueh shops in sg all have such THICK and awful skin. Amazing that this noodle-converted-to-kueh shop can outdo all the traditional kueh shops (in my view anyway).
.
πŸ“ : Link to order form on their Instagram account.
πŸ’‘ : $7 flat fee islandwide delivery or self collect from Jurong.

Food court prices with better quality meats. The garlic dip is my favorite as I find the spicy miso too salty. Sets come with soup and kimchi and 200g of meat.
.
Not exactly curbside but I'm giving this one a Special Mention cos you get a grace period of 15min (?) at the PLQ mall basement carpark which is just enough time to self collect. Sadly, after Phase 2 started, they stopped offering Islandwide delivery via Grab so I have no choice but to self collect since as a solo diner I cannot meet the $35 minimum order on their oddle page.

Since my favorite izakaya is not doing takeaway during lockdown, I have been getting my izakaya fix from Shukuu due to their curbside location (a shop house in Telok Ayer) and reasonable prices. They have a good selection of easy to drink sake, priced around $70+gst. For food, their mentai rosti, kani miso and deep fried squid tentacles are my favorites. Avoid their fried chicken karaage (an izakaya staple) as it is unfortunately sub par.
.
πŸ“ž : WhatsApp to order. Contact and menu on their fb.
πŸ’‘ : 20% discount off food for self collection
πŸš™ : easy streetside parking just outside the shop, since Stanley street deserted now you don't even need parallel parking skills.

I always order this dish for brunch, and I'm happy to say it travels really well in takeout form! Just pop the bread in the toaster for a few minutes when you get home and it will be as good as new. If you want you can even give the bone marrow a quick 20s zap in the microwave.
.
Unfortunately they didn't post the regular menu on their social media but Chope has it.
.
πŸ“ Call to order. Contact on their fb.
πŸ’‘ : one for one on burpple applies for self collection
πŸš™ : easy parking as you can stop your car right outside the shop which is in a residential neighborhood.

Steamboat kits are the best option for couples and small families as you get variety without food wastage. Also ideal for busy (lazy) people like me who want to save on prep work and avoid crowded supermarkets. This kit starts from $30 for pork, and comes with a soup base and two types of chilli sauces too.
.
This shop only offers one type of soup so I probably wouldn't order from them again as I prefer a spicy soup base. But if you have more subtle ( sophisticated?) taste buds as most Singaporeans do, then this is a reasonably priced option with fresh and plentiful ingredients.
.
πŸ“ž : WhatsApp or call to order. Contact on their fb.
πŸš™ : If you self collect you must do so by 5pm. Easy curbside pickup for drivers as it is in a industrial kind of area.
πŸ’‘ : you may want to top up on a la carte order of meat because it's quite little meat for 2 pax (estimate 100g)

The. Best. Tart. Ever. This hazelnut chocolate confection looks delicate and pretty from the outside, yet packs a solid punch with dark chocolate ganache inside and a gooey hazelnut praline center. Major love for this neighborhood cafe, that also serves yummy food.
.
πŸ“ž : WhatsApp in advance to order
πŸš™ : plenty of streetside parking just outside the shop.

I adore the honey themed food here, so healthy yet tasty! None of that deep fried stuff that are typical to lazy cafes. Of their range of waffle sandwiches, the beef ragu is my favourite as it is slightly spicy from JalapeΓ±os, and includes a sunny side up with perfect flowy yolk. This sandwich is part of the $35.90 Bundle B, which includes a salmon mentai don and two honey drinks, perfect for a couple. When taking out, the waffle is packed separately so that the toppings don't make it soggy.
.
Order was ready waiting for me when I arrived about 30min after my telephone order πŸ‘
.
πŸ“ž : call or WhatsApp to order. Contact on their fb or ig.
πŸš™ : easy street parking just outside the shop (minimal parallel parking skills required as there are many lots available during covid)
πŸ’‘: don't miss out on their tarts (better than the cakes)

My neighborhood steakhouse now does bento boxes, perfect for a quick lunch or TV dinner when you're having back to back work calls all day. I like the variety of the bento box, but the full a la carte menu is available as well.
.
Unfortunately not the most advanced online ordering app. You can't indicate the collection time so the staff will have to call you to confirm πŸ˜‚
.
πŸ“ : https://smartweb-2.tabsquare.com/intro
πŸ’‘ : 25% discount for self collection.

I love that they have unique flavours such as hae bee hiam, bak kwa, beetroot and carrot, in addition to the traditional soon and chives (韭菜) flavors. The skin is unlike typical soon kueh skin, more like ζ°΄ζ™ΆεŒ… skin. The soon kueh also comes frozen if you want to keep it in your feeezer for up to a week and steam it yourself for an instant meal.
.
Just call or WhatsApp your order and pay by paynow. you'll need to get out of your car to register at the guard house before you can access the compound.
.
πŸ’‘ : note that they are purists, so no chilli or condiments are provided.

One of my regular haunts for their next level baguettes, and I'm glad to see that they were busy with takeaway orders on second day of CB!
.
Unfortunately the shop was a little squeezy and hectic during lunchtime, and I had to wait about ten minutes even though I ordered in advance and arrived at my indicated time. Also their online oddle shop doesn't haven't the full menu so it's better to WhatsApp your order, but then you have to use the germy nets payment machine. Hopefully they sort out their oddle menu soon.
.
WhatsApp 9777 7519 to order (menu on their Facebook page).

Ramly-esque patties with tons of dressing, just the way I like my burgers. The quartet (four cheese) is my favorite but the truffle mushroom (pictured) comes a close second with its luxurious truffle smell. Not a big fan of the somewhat artificial tasting mac and cheese though.
.
My order is always ready at the specified time indicated in the oddle app πŸ‘, i love the no-contact pickup method at tampines food co.
.

πŸ’‘: Temperature checks apply for pickups. You have to fill in your contact details using a qr scan code.

Nangfa offers plenty of dishes that travel well in a takeout container ! The seafood glass noodle salad is my go to when I want a simple but satisfying lunch. Goes best with Thai iced tea to wash down the 🌢 .
.
My order is always packed and waiting for me at the specified time indicated in the oddle app πŸ‘
.
πŸš— : 10min grace period at hdb carpark nearby, perfect for pick ups
πŸ’‘ : way more authentic than nakhon next door, in case you were wondering.
