It’s an open truth — F&B businesses have not been having the easiest time during this COVID-19 period. With everybody staying in and the decreased footfall, there has been a massive plunge in sales in the F&B sector.
Even though many establishments have pushed out delivery and takeaway services, some have not been able to tide through. Whether it was the high rental costs or low profits, these burdens were too heavy to bear.
Here is a list of 30 F&B businesses in Singapore which are planning to or have already shut down for good during COVID-19. Nevertheless, we hope that this is not goodbye forever and we’ll see them come back stronger than ever.
Fun fact: Kway chap is actually a Teochew dish. Another fun fact (that you already know): It’s a very popular Teochew dish. If there’s one dish that we would kill for on rainy days, it would have to be this.
When you’re eating kway chap, it’s impossible to get bored. The medley of ingredients squeezed onto one plate keeps you excited throughout the meal, from start to finish. We love that you can come up with all kinds of permutations in every bite — kway and intestines, tau pok and pork belly, and so on.

Three times a day, the billion-dollar question comes up — “What should we eat?” Deciding what to have during mealtimes now is almost as difficult as fixing a 1000-piece puzzle, with so many options at hand.
It doesn’t help that many restaurants, cafes and hawker stalls are offering islandwide food delivery now. But since most of these places charge for delivery based on distance, we’ve compiled out a comprehensive guide to 130 cafes and restaurants doing islandwide food delivery sorted out by their areas (Central, East, North, South and West Singapore).
This way, you can simply narrow down your choices to those within your area if you’re looking to trim off some of the delivery fees! You’re welcome.
We all have our favourite aisle in the supermarket, whether it’s “bread, spreads & jam” or “condiments & dried goods”. For some of us, though, it isn’t an aisle. It’s a full-blown section. That’s right, the ice cream section.
We know, that place is dangerous territory — where temptations flow like no tomorrow and any remnants of self-control we thought we had fade into oblivion. But, some days just call for an ice cream treat.
If you’re always reaching for that same Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey tub or that box of Magnum sticks, we’re here to introduce you to a whole new world. We’ve compiled a list of 10 other excellent ice creams right under your nose that you’ve been sorely missing out on!
How about trying something new for a change? You’ll never know unless you try.
Heads up, Westies. IKEA is coming your way next year in 2021.
Their third outlet is opening in JEM, taking over the former space of Robinsons. While the new space is relatively smaller than IKEA’s other two outlets, the smaller concept of IKEA housed within a shopping mall itself will be the first of its kind within the region.
Spanning across three floors, the new store will occupy 70, 000 square feet of space in total. Shoppers can expect the entire collection of IKEA’s products, from their iconic Poäng chair to your favourite Docksta table.
