Growing tired of eating the same few meals you’ve had in the past few weeks?

If you have no idea on where you can start finding more options for your daily meals, fret not. We’ve got you covered with this list of food options you can use.

1. Foodleh 

Created by two university students, Lim Yi Fan and Ng Chee Peng, Foodleh has over 60 listings of hawker stalls throughout Singapore. The crowd-sourced platform is able to filter the listings based on the type of cuisine, and also helps the restaurants and hawker stalls to cut out the middlemen fees.

2. Googlepay Singapore 

Just earlier this week, Google added a new food discovery feature on its Googlepay Singapore app. Users are able to browse the menus of the restaurants in the area they are at and curate their orders. However, the order must be eventually placed by WhatsApp or a phone call, as well as to sort out the pick up or delivery with the merchants too.

At the very least, it also allows merchants to cut out the middlemen fees.

3. The Smart Local’s delivery listings 

The Smart Local (TSL) has curated a list of food and beverages options on its website.

The best part? It also lists down the delivery fees for the different merchants too. TSL lists include several zi char options, so if you’re looking to have a feast at home with your family, this listing is for you!

 4. Hawkers United

A Facebook group created at the start of the circuit breaker period, Hawkers United features a plethora of options. The only caveat is that you have to scroll through post after post to find what you are looking for.

However, this group also contains all the hawkers who are trying to keep their businesses afloat during this tough period, so why not give them a show of support?

5. Telegram groups 

There are plenty of Telegram groups out there, and someone out there (whoever you are, kudos to you!) has compiled a list of food groups based on the different areas of Singapore in a Google document.

In each group, there are numerous listings and how much it costs to deliver the food to your place, so you do not need to be worried about any hidden costs.

There are over 80 groups listed in this document, so you don’t need to worry about a lack of options at all!

We hope you can satisfy your cravings and hunger with this resource list! In the meantime, stay home and stay safe, everyone!
