SICK OF COOKING? CHECK OUT THESE WHOLESOME FOOD DELIVERIES IN SINGAPORE
Updated: Apr 26, 2020
"Let Food be Thy Medicine" Hippocrates said. Well, I don't know about you but right now my fave medicine is chocolate and banana bread. Or even chocolate banana bread. A tad 'basic' perhaps, but I'm craving good home cooking that's comforting but still made with high quality ingredients. There are ways in which we can balance things out a little and opt for the lesser of evils - perhaps the baked treat is made with natural sweeteners rather than refined cane sugar, or you order out for ceviche instead of fish and chips. This is a great time to support our friends in the F&B industry by supplementing your home-cooking with delivery services from our favourite restaurants and food suppliers, and below you'll find some of our personal stalwarts as well as options that come highly recommended from our tribe.
DAIRY-FREE & HEALTHY FARE - THE LIVING CAFE

Nori rolls, bountiful salads, bone broth, brunch faves, raw pizza and an array of toothsome raw desserts are for the taking at this palate-pleasing neighbourhood cafe. Once a weekend treat when I found myself in the Bukit Timah hood, now I can tuck into select items a casa - just note not all dishes are available for delivery, although they do deliver island-wide.
GRAINS & SALADS - ARTEMIS GRILL & SKYBAR

Once a go-to for a CBD power lunch or special occasion dinner, the modern Mediterranean Artemis are offering fab salad bowls, mix and match sides, grilled meats, pastas and even gluten-free foccacia. Yum. Perfect for lunch, and there are veg, keto, gf and carnivore options to keep everyone happy. Prices are friendly and you can even opt for vouchers to gift a pal.
AUSSIE-STYLE BRUNCH - CARROTSTICKS & CRAVINGS

The al fresco terrace at the Robertson Quay outlet is where you'd usually find us wiling away the weekend in our yoga pants, knocking back the kombucha and Singapore's best avo-toast. With vegan, veggie, keto, gf and 'regular' items on the menu, you can still get your brunch fix by whatsapping them for delivery. While you're at it, why not tag on a veggie box to stock up your fridge - just note that these require a 2 day advance order.
GLUTEN-FREE ITALIAN - AMO

Ah, the good old days of yore when I was still going to an office... an office conveniently located just a stone's throw from my favourite Italian which has a separate, fully gluten-free menu. The work-wives and I used to gather for vino and tuck into grilled veggies, burrata and home-made ravioli with chestnut flour. So whilst this isn't technically a 'clean eats' recco, those of us who are allergic to wheat and gluten find solace in the extensive options available here. To order from the gluten-free menu, give them a call rather than Deliveroo.
PALEO SWEET TREATS - BAKENING

Everything at this bakery is paleo, dairy-free, soy and peanut-free and of course there are no nasty additives or preservatives. Best-sellers include their fluffy keto sandwich breads, as well as almond bread and coconut bread, which frankly tastes more like dessert to me! The Sea-Salt Crunch cookies are incredibly more-ish, and teeny tiny so no guilt attached - the simple ingredients are just Cashew, Arrowroot, Organic Coconut Sugar, Sea Salt Flakes, Baking Soda. There's also a ridiculously tasty looking chocolate fudge cake that I have yet to try... You can choose the option of organic coconut sugar or organic erythritol.

A stalwart in this household, I literally can't live without The Whole Kitchen's gf sourdough. They've recently introduced a Low-Carb Nut & Seed Bread that is fabulous toasted and slathered with nut butter or....ahem... salted butter and cheese! Their refined-sugar free cakes and muffins are also brilliant treats, with a special shout out to Lemon Pistachio cake. They deliver Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The immunity booster shots are like rocket fuel, and best gulped down in one go! Get all your vitamins and minerals the natural way, through whole foods that are cold pressed and delivered straight to your door.
