honestbee Is The Ultimate Bae
The pinch about most food deliveries is that you have to order lots of dishes in order to hit the minimum order amount, which averages at $15.
On top of that, users will also have to pay an additional delivery fee of about $3 to $5.
So to make the order worthwhile, users usually ‘jio’ their friends to place an order together with them, and then split the delivery cost among the group.
But here’s what makes honestbee Food stand out from the rest: it offers free delivery and there is no minimum order amount, making it the perfect option for single-diners or smaller orders.
It also features over 1,000 food and beverage merchants offering a variety of food – from small bites to family feasts, there’s something for every craving.
Not only that, honestbee Food claims that the list of partnering merchants on their platform is curated and approved by foodies, so even a random pick is bound to be a good choice!
To ease your headache on what food to order, here are some hot favourites for you to consider:
1. JUMBO Seafood
This restaurant chain has been around for 30 years now, and has been the default place for Singaporeans to go for their seafood fix.
They offer quality seafood and a mean version of chilli crab! It’s a definite must-try, but if sweet and spicy isn’t your thing, you can also try out other crab variations such as the black pepper or the salted egg yolk crab.
The best part is when you mop up the gravy – which is thickly layered with egg – with pillowy fried mantous. Slurrrrp!
And since this restaurant is so popular, it is often crowded and usually requires a reservation in advance.
So make life easier for yourself and simply have it delivered, so you can enjoy the goodness of JUMBO Seafood at the comfort of your own home!
PastaMania is the largest Italian restaurant chain in Singapore, serving cheap and tasty casual meals of pastas, baked rice and pizzas – all priced at around just $10!
Dubbed the ‘pasta people’, PastaMania naturally serves a rather extensive variety of pastas, from Mediterranean classics to more creative creations, such as chicken cheese salsiccia, and salted egg chicken.
If you’re on a budget and still want to go fancy, then PastaMania definitely makes the perfect choice for you!
3. Lucha Loco
Once you try Lucha Loco, you are bound to go loco for their tacos!
Lucha Loco is Singapore’s first taqueria which offers gourmet Mexican street food, so it really is the best place to satisfy all your Mexican cravings.
Their tacos stuffed with pork belly, tiger prawns or Baja fish are all tasty options. You can easily put a light meal together with a selection of appetisers and tacos, or opt to share a more substantial main like the grain-fed sirloin with cactus, salsa verde and chimichurri sauce.
In fact, the menu at Lucha Loco was developed by Executive Chef Mario Malvaez in collaboration with Chef Jason Jones, co-founder of the hugely popular Mexican resturant Mamasita in Melbourne.
So yes, their Mexican fare is definitely authentic and delicioso!
