Take-out food and home delivery

Post by Hedgie » Wed, 05 Jul 2006 7:31 am

Do hawker center stalls wrap food up for take-out dining if you wanted to eat it at home? Is home delivery from restaurants a common thing in Singapore?

hi hedgie

yes, all the stalls in hawker centres allow take-away (some may charge extra for take-aways) however, not all the restaurants (except fast food joints) home delivery. restaurants allow you to order and take-away though...

Thanks sanz! I suspect pizza delivery is not too common there right? :)

Pizza Hut and Canadian 2 for 1 both do home delivery. These are terrible US style pizzas (stuffed crust and anything else you can think of) though rather than Italian styled - more is less.

Banana Leaf Appollo is the only Indian restaurant i know that delivers. Lovely food and you get a choice of Northern or Southern curries - they're on Race Course road so stop by and get a menu. Word of warning, their phone service is awful so you must order well in advance - you could do it from work though if you know you want it once or twice a week. There is a place called Dial-a-curry but the food has been awful when we tried it. If you get one of the expat magazines you will find a couple of other delivery options as well but it's not that common.

I lived in NYC for quite a while, so when I came back to Singapore, it was quite a change since delivery is not a culture here. Most of the time, you have to get out of the apartment to get what you want, and it can be pretty darn incovenient if its late and you dont have a car. That being said, it also depends on the area which you are living in. Where are you gonna be putting up?

bling bling, I'm not sure where I'll be living. I first need to set up some office space and I will probably do this somewhere in the financial district (Raffles, central, suntec ??) . I would like to live somewhere near there either by walking or close by MRT. Wherever I live, I'd like it to be close to an area that is lively at night with places to eat open, as well as bars. Any suggestions on neighborhoods I should consider?

hi hedgie, think you might end up staying in orchard/central area (one of the areas where foreigners like to reside). if you are talking about after midnight snacks, it's abit difficult in this area as 24hrs coffeshops are usually found in heartlands. there are a few bars/clubs in orchard area; if all else fails, there's always the hotel lounges! :wink: three mrts; orchard, somerset and dhoby ghaut to choose from.

another area you can consider is apartments near clarke quay (mohamed sultan rd), depending on how fast you walk, clarke quay mrt is abt 15-20mins away.

hope this helps!
