During the circuit breaker, many people either turn to food deliveries/takeaways or become chefs trying out different recipes.

Trust both Cecil and Vince to send a table of food and we can eat it over several meals. If you have followed my page regularly, you will probably noticed that we love Indian food a lot and Karu’s definitely ticked all the right boxes for me in terms of flavour, portion and variety. The signature Curry Fish Head ($26, small) is the star for me as the red snapper meat is firm and tender to the bite, while the gravy is perfect alongside some white rice. The other dishes that we have gotten included the Chicken Masala ($7), Chicken 65 ($7), Palak Paneer ($11) and portions of biryani rice and naans, all equally delish that is worth all the calories.

This National Day Bundle Set is available exclusively for delivery or pick up by ordering from the below link, and the set is good for 4 pax which comes with a full slab of the Satay Baby Back Ribs, full slab of Hickory BBQ Baby Back Ribs, a choice of either Satay Pork Belly or Chicken Satay, Buffalo Wings, Pilaf Rice and Mac & Cheese. If you are a fan of Morganfield’s or trying them for the first time, you will know why they are called the Home of Sticky Bones, especially for their low and slow BBQ tradition of the baby back ribs, and in this case, it is hand-rubbed with the Singapore’s iconic satay sauce spice before flame-grilled and basted with coconut milk and lemongrass. The tender, fall-off-the-bone ribs melt in your mouth while bringing a spicy flavour from the sauce.

Alongside the Satay Baby Back Ribs are the Satay Pork Belly and Chicken Skewers, both marinated in a unique blend of spices and flame-grilled till cooked. A side of chunky peanut sauce will be given for your dipping pleasures, mimicking the actual satay eating experience.

The National Day Bundle Set will be available from 2 August till 31 August and when you order from the below delivery website, enjoy a $10 off when you enter the promo code upon checkout.

Since then, they have ventured into the delivery concept and now delivers the same dishes as before islandwide. Pictured is the Braised Duck Half Portion ($25) with add-ons of Tau Kwa ($2.50), Preserved Vegetables ($2.50), Braised Eggs ($1.50 each) and Yam Rice ($1.50 each). There is a minimum order of $25 for deliveries and you can enjoy free delivery for orders above $40 or a delivery fee of $10 applies.

What I like about Changi KK Duck is that they cooked the duck so well that there is zero gaminess to the meat and it is best paired with the umami-packed thick braised sauce that has strong hints of garlic in it. The sauce can also be poured over the yam rice for that gooey comforting mouthfeel. As with the term “ugly delicious” this is exactly the type of dish that might not win in a beauty pageant but in terms of flavour, this packs a punch. Special mention to both the tangy garlic chilli sauce and sambal chilli sauce, which helps to cut through the richness from the meat and sauce.

Even with the current dine in restrictions, the restaurant is still continuing its menu innovations and releasing new dishes periodically. From now to 31 October, the restaurant is launching the Exquisite Lobster Delicacies menu, with over eight dishes in the lineup. You can throw a party at home and have a lobster feast with three of the dishes made with the Australian Western Rock Lobsters, a prized catch that is new in the Singapore’s dining scene. This breed of lobster is the most valuable single-species lobster in Australia, famed for the firm, sweet, creamy, and extremely rich white meat.

If you prefer the local lobsters, there are also five dishes from this limited-time menu with the Braised Lobster with Sea Urchin Sauce & Rice ($48), a rich and decadent dish of two premium ingredients with spinach rice. There is also the Black Truffle Custard Lobster Ball ($48), a dish of multiple layers with the earthiness from the black truffle to the sweetness of the lobster meat and creaminess from the custard. My top pick has got to be my favourite Lobster Rice Roll ($25), with the steamed rice rolls still retaining a nice chew from the delivery with the chunky lobster meat within it and the umami soy sauce mixture that you pour over to give it the ultimate boost in flavours.

Besides the Exquisite Lobster Delicacies menu, Wan Hao will also continue the $15 nett bentos, $15 nett dim sum bento and 30% takeaway for ala carte orders.

You can either opt for drive-through collection or choose the delivery option with complimentary delivery when you spend more than $150 nett (after discounts).

Over at Java+, the restaurant has specially curated a series of takeaway bentos with Western and Asian flavours that allow you to customize your choice of two entrees and one main or opt for their pre-selected options. For Java+’s Create Your Own Bento (link to order below), it is priced at $20 nett, which in my opinion is not only value-for-money, you have a variety of entrees to choose from as there are a total of 12 options such as the Roasted Kipfler Herbed Potatoes and Mushroom Risotto while there are 7 mains like the Mediterranean Seabass Stew that I have gotten which is cooked in a white wine tomato broth and comes with olives, tomatoes and capers. Each order of the takeaway bento also comes with a complimentary soup of the day.

Besides the Create Your Own Bento, Java+ has the Flavours of Happiness Bento (from $10 nett) and a Jumbo Takeaway Family Feast ($250 nett) of either the Meat Paradise or Treasures of the Sea that can feed 4 to 6 pax.

Not only will your tummies thank you for the delicious pastas and pizzas from The Priority Club, there are also games to keep you and your loved ones occupied during this stay home period.

The Curry Chicken Pasta ($17.90) is made with the signature Japanese curry and topped with crispy popcorn chicken while the Salted Egg Crab Pasta ($19.90) pays homage to one of the nation’s favourite ingredient, the salted egg sauce that is complemented with shredded crab meat. Besides the variety of pastas, there are also pizzas such as the Pineapple Quest Pizza ($19.90) or Pac Pan Pepperoni Pizza ($19.90) that you can order in to share with the family. Pizza enthusiasts will disagree to have pineapples in their pizzas but I am actually neutral about it and this Pineapple Quest has ham, bacon and pineapple on a pizza dough with BBQ tomato sauce.

This version is made with a buttery Oreo tart base with Nutella and Oreo crumbs at the top. I thoroughly enjoy this as much as the original Nutella tarts, and borrowing a quote from a famous snack brand, “once you pop, you can’t stop” – this is exactly what it is the moment you open the bottle and start with the first tart.

While you are at it, why not also cart out a bottle of the Cheese Time Meltz ($23), buttery crust with a hit of parmesan cheese and thyme for the perfect tea time snack.

Pictured is the Family Set ($68), which comes with a whole braised duck that has been chopped up, a separate box of braised pork belly, eggs and beancurd with four boxes of white rice. The order also comes with additional braising liquid and two kinds of chilli, a tangy one and another that has a belacan consistency with hae bee hiam inside.

Duck Empire is a home based business that has mastered the art of traditional Teochew braised duck and their food does not contain any MSG or added preservatives. The star of the show, the duck, has a light herbal flavour while not being overly salty. You can taste the quality of the soy sauce and hints of star anise and cinnamon sticks in the braise too. There are some parts that are on the drier side, which is expected of duck, but most are juicy to the bite.

From the fast expanding King of Fried Rice to the legendary Nam Sing Hokkien Fried Mee from Old Airport Road Food Centre, Ann Chin Popiah, Famous Eunos Bak Chor Mee, supper hotspot Scissors Cut Hainanese Curry Rice and the Michelin-recommended Jian Bo Tiong Bahru Shui Kueh, one can eat to your hearts content with such variety.

As with other good hokkien fried mee, the taste is different when you eat it freshly prepared and when its packeted. During the course of the delivery, the noodles soak up the broth even more, giving it an elevated taste profile as well. At Nam Sing, the hokkien mee is of the drier version with the use of thin bee hoon and yellow noodles, cooked in a rich prawn and meat stock. There is no sambal belacan as well, and instead cut chillies in soya sauce is given. Ann Chin Popiah is a heritage brand that has over seven outlets islandwide and their unique selling point is their freshly made popiah skin wrapped in the normal popiah ingredients with the addition of fried flour bits and eggs. Jian Bo Shui Kueh needs no introduction as the main stall at Tiong Bahru Market has a constant queue during the opening hours. A simple dish it might seemed, but everything about the steamed rice cakes with chye poh works magically.

If you have not already known, Shisen Hanten was awarded two stars in the MICHELIN Guide Singapore 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, making it the highest Michelin-rated Chinese restaurant in Singapore for four years running. This year, the lineup of mooncakes, both baked and snowskin, are packed in a beautiful midnight-blue box with an illustration of a full moon to symbolize the festival and touches of gold to enhance its extravagance and abundance.

From the signatures Classic Double Yolk Baked Mooncake ($79/4pcs) and Baked Mooncake with Mixed Nuts and Jamón Ibérico (Pictured, $79/4pcs), there are also low sugar options such as the newly launched Japanese Pumpkin and Sakura Petals with Low Sugar White Lotus Paste ($79/4pcs) and Macadamia Nuts with Low Sugar White Lotus Paste ($75/4pcs). Between the four baked ones, my favourites are the mixed nuts with jamón ibérico as the addition of these savoury ingredients help to balance the sweetness coming from the white lotus paste while the healthier option of macadamia nuts with the low sugar white lotus paste goes perfectly well with a pot of Chinese tea.

The handmade Yi Bua ($7.90 for 6 pieces) comes in two flavours, the traditional one in white is a steamed dumpling made with glutinous rice and potato flour and filled with a sweetened mixture of gula melaka, grated coconut filling, ginger juice and crushed roasted peanut. The modernized one in pink comes with additional peanuts in it. Both are shaped in a triangular form with a banana leaf at the base for easy consumption.

The Hainanese MONGA Crispy Chic Toast Bun with Ice Lemon Tea ($9.90) will be available till 31 July, and it comes with an XXL crispy fried chicken sandwiched between two soft fluffy buns, with cheese, tomato, cucumber and lettuce added to it. You can also enjoy this sandwich with sides such as coleslaw, Hainanese curry sauce or a sweet & sour tomato sauce. If you prefer something sweet, there is a whole range of butter cakes with flavours such as Rum and Raisin ($9), Teh Tarik and Kopi Guyou, and to wash it all down, there is the Bao Cha Series of milk tea such as the Oolong Milk Tea ($4.80) which comes with konjac pearls in it.

The former is infused with premium gula melaka from Indonesia and has a rich caramel sweetness and aroma, best paired with a spread of kaya coconut jam, peanut butter, ice cream or enjoyed on its own with a cup of freshly brewed coffee. The latter has the nostalgic milk bread taste as it is made with natural milk and has a soft texture. The mildly sweet flavour complements well with stronger flavoured items such as scrambled eggs and cold cuts.
