2020 has been a bad year for everyone, period.
Most industries in Singapore have been badly hit by the pandemic, which has left many of us scrambling to save our sinking boats. The F&B sector especially has suffered and things got worse when the Circuit Breaker was put in place, restricting people from dining out and patronising these establishments.
Aside from COVID-19, many of these F&B ventures have also decided to close for other reasons such as the end of their lease. Whatever the case, we are sad to see these places go and we hope that better opportunities will come their way soon.
With that, here is a list of F&B outlets in Singapore that have closed their doors in 2020.
We honestly can’t wait to get 2020 over and done with. It’s only June, yet the past 6 months have felt like a very long episode of Black Mirror.
If you’re like us and you’re looking forward to your next holiday, you may want to take note of the Public Holidays for 2021. While there may still be plenty of uncertainty over whether it would be possible for us to be able to travel overseas next year, a little early planning never hurts anyone.
There will be 11 annual public holidays in 2021, where three of these will fall on a Friday and one will be on a Monday. Altogether, there will be four long weekends, three fewer than in 2020.
This year hasn’t been a good one for anyone, and the F&B industry in Singapore is one of the hardest-hit sectors. This has caused many well-loved eateries to close their doors.
Joining the other eateries that have shut down in Singapore is The Pelican, which will officially cease operations on 30 June 2020.
The day all of us bubble tea lovers have been waiting for has come after an arduous 2-month wait.
Bubble tea stores are FINALLY allowed to reopen on 19 June 2020 during Phase 2 along with other F&B establishments.
When those late-night supper cravings hit, instant noodles have always been there for us. Easy to put together, wallet-friendly and addictively delicious, what is there not to love?
Over the years, the instant noodle scene has grown drastically and we are constantly seeing new brands and variations of this popular instant snack enter the market. Forming a wide spectrum with cheap, classic options such as Indomie Mi Goreng to more fancy variations like Hai Chi Jia Guo Ba Fen, the choices are endless.
Want to try something new but don’t know where to start? Here are the 21 best instant noodles in Singapore you can give a shot the next time you need to stock up your pantry.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably would have come across some form of these spicy noodles from Hai Chi Jia that have been making waves across the internet for the past few weeks. These popular snacks in Singapore have become very popular as they are not only easy to prepare but incredibly addictive.
Joining the popular Mala Oden and Spicy Clam Noodles (Hua Jia Fen) is the new Jiao Ma Guo Ba Fen, which is essentially our favourite spicy mala vermicelli paired with chunks of crispy rice.
If you love the Mala Oden and Spicy Clam Noodles from Hai Chi Jia, you definitely need to give the Jiao Ma Guo Ba Fen a shot and get a few cups of these from snacksdelivery.sg.
Craving for western food while stuck at home during the Circuit Breaker? Fret not, as there are a number of eateries in Singapore serving Western fare that do islandwide delivery so you can get your chicken chop and fish & chips fix.
While there are a number of western restaurants that already do islandwide deliveries, did you know that some of your favourite hawker and coffee shop stalls selling old-school and restaurant-quality western food have jumped onto the bandwagon and now offer islandwide western food delivery services during the Circuit Breaker too? We have here a list of such stalls so you can #supportlocal the next time you crave some good ol’ pasta or steak.
With the new measures and the extension of the Circuit Breaker in place, most of us are bummed out, we’re sure. And it’s definitely worse if your birthday falls during this period, especially since cake shops and confectionery are considered non-essential services as of 21st April 2020.
If you’re worried about not being able to celebrate your birthday in style, fret not. We have gathered a list of places where you can order a delicious whole cake to celebrate your birthday with your family (and even friends, over Zoom!), and have it delivered to your doorstep.
Without further ado, here are 13 cake places in Singapore that still deliver to your doorstep for birthday celebrations at home.
