Food - home delivery

Postby Scandinavia » Fri, 04 Jan 2008 4:22 pm

Relocating to Singapore we find ourselves in the restaurants all the time since it takes time to get all the kitchen ware in place and then to get food in stock at home.

Now I wonder what food is available out there for home delivery?

I know:

Mcdonalds, Pizzahut and Canadien Pizza does.

I would have loved Mexican food available for home delivery?

Also I finally managed to get a good food chain that delivers to my doorstep. What a relief! www.coldstorage.com.sg

Hope this helps other relocators who needs a good initial fill up when arriving.... You need your EP number, an adress and a local phone though. I had all this from my company which I guess is a luxury

All,

I got the delivery on time and the only but was that 20% of the articles from coldstorage was left out.

This was a saturday delivery so that might have played a role in the high percentage of left out products?

Still it was just so good to get all the heavy goods delivered to the doorstep!

durain,

If it didn't scare me so much, I'd say we definitely think a lot alike. :o

cuisine express deliver from many restaurants in the central, east and west districts of the city. Included are lots of western restaurants like hard rock, tony romas, indian cuisine, chinese cuisine, and mediteranean.

Delivery charges are high as are the prices, you can only order after 6pm and delivery takes up to 1.5 hours.

sometimes tho you just need a rack of ribs :D

you can also get KFC delivered but I don't know why you would.

Jasons market place, and most cold storages in town, will also deliver for free after a shopping spree in store, spend $150 and they deliver for free, same day.

makes sure you don't miss any products and the carrying of tins of tomatoes. :D NO durian blech!
