[SG] Affordable Delivery Options during Circuit Breaker

Thursday, April 16, 2020

It's not an easy period for most of us, from restaurateurs, our beloved hawkers to the ones who have been obediently staying home like us. While there has been many delivery options out there, we have had some difficulty in finding affordable ones that are practically achievable and not too extravagant in this period of prudent spending.

We've been cooking more often this period, but of course there are lazier days. Often ordering for just 2 of us in the household, the easiest option would be to order via the delivery platforms, but we also wanted to show some support to those doing their own delivery this period, without having to order excessively!

1. 6oz Espresso Bar - For your coffee fix
  • Free delivery with min. spending of $10
  • Whatsapp your orders and preferred delivery slot to 8833 2866



2. Yat Ka Yan - Chinese desserts and snacks for your tea time (or anytime!)
  • Free delivery with min. spending of $15
  • Orders to be placed at least 1 day in advance
  • Whatsapp them at 9631 2359



3. Uncle Chieng's - old school ice cream blocks
  • Free delivery with min. order of 2 blocks of ice-cream ($16)
  • Each block of ice-cream at $8
  • Whatsapp your order to 9335 3323
They have slightly limited areas of delivery, which include mainly the central area - Tiong Bahru, Queentown, Redhill, Bukit Merah. River Valley, Telok Blangah, Pasir Panjang, Tanjong Pagar, Chinatown, Orchard Road, Holland and Bukit Timah.

We tried ordering from them and got pretty prompt responses on Whatsapp, and got our ice-cream delivered two days later. They have ran out of colourful bread and wafer biscuits though, but you can still match your ice-cream with other bread!

Flavours available:


While there are other ice-cream sellers around and doing islandwide delivery, this was very manageable for us as min. order is only at 2 blocks, and we happen to be within the area of delivery!


4. Toast Box - For your local delights and comforting kopi
  • Free delivery with min. spending of $25
  • Delivery is available for households within 10mins walking distance from their outlets (but good thing they have quite a number of outlets islandwide), $5 surcharge applies for areas exceeding the 10mins walking distance
  • Orders to be made at least 3 hours in advance

We personally tried this and found this a good option for lunch, just that you'd have to plan ahead as orders have to be made at least 3 hours in advance. The items were hand-delivered by Toast Box staff hence the restriction on the distance, delivery time was very prompt and our food and coffee were still warm when they arrived.

5. Wee Nam Kee Chicken Rice - staple essentials!
  • Free delivery with min. spending of $30
  • Orders to be placed at least 1 day in advance
  • Whatsapp them at 8896 5136 to place your orders (same number as Monga and Founder BKT)



We've tried it in-store previously and it's quite a decent one, with special mention to their Fish Head Curry, which is now at $25.70 nett, the perfect accompaniment with rice! A comforting fix of local dishes, and a pretty sumptuous meal! Add them on your Whatsapp contact to view their menu via their Whatsapp business profile, along with Monga and Founder BKT, but minimum purchase remains at $30 for each brand.


6. Monga Fried Chicken - There's always days for fried chicken
  • Free delivery with min. spending of $30
  • Orders to be placed at least 1 day in advance
  • Whatsapp them at 8896 5136 to place your orders (same number as Wee Nam Kee and Founder BKT), alternative number at 9655 1411


7. Founder Bak Kut Teh
  • Free delivery with min. spending of $30
  • Orders to be placed at least 1 day in advance
  • Whatsapp them at 8896 5136 to place your orders (same number as Wee Nam Kee and Monga)




Apart from just BKT, they've got a series of newly launched Mama's Home-cooked dishes, so you can also have a mix of dishes back home!

We hope this list has been useful in helping you find an affordable option during this period! You can also check out Hawkers United - Dabao 2020 on Facebook for more hawker options posted up there.

Do note that due to more demand for delivery, response time might take longer as most of these are managed by their own staff and are not automated systems to process orders. Do be patient and also be a little nicer to all these people working behind the scenes to bring us food! Stay safe and stay healthy!
