We get it. You’re bummed about not being able to dine out during this circuit breaker period. Trust us, we’re on the same boat. And maybe, just sometimes, we need a little pick-me-up in the form of sweet dessert treats. Thanks to delivery apps, we’re able to order in our favourite desserts at any time of the day.
Whether you’re craving doughnuts in the middle of the day, or cakes as a dessert treat after a satisfying dinner, you can be sure that the desserts that you’re craving for will be delivered to your doorstep.
Here are our 20 dessert places in Singapore that offer islandwide delivery. Ranging from homely egg tarts to diabetic-friendly cakes to luxurious eclairs, the choices are endless.
The COVID-19 pandemic has almost destroyed the Food & Beverage (F&B) industry in a matter of weeks. Singapore restaurant sales went down by 90% in March 2020 and with the recent introduction of Circuit Breaker in Singapore, restaurants, cafes and hawkers are unable to offer dine-in services for their customers and many F&B merchants have scrambled to join the main delivery apps in Singapore—GrabFood, Food Panda and Deliveroo.
Since the start of Circuit Breaker in Singapore, there are more and more food places in Singapore that started to offer islandwide food deliveries in Singapore. And it’s not just restaurants and cafes that are doing that.
Before COVID-19, most hawker stalls are not even on food delivery apps. But since then, many hawker stalls have started to offer islandwide food deliveries by partnering with courier companies and local drivers. Other food places have also come up with takeaway menus and promotions during the COVID-19 period in order to stay afloat.
At the same time, many F&B places have chosen to close temporarily as the Circuit Breaker situation simply isn’t in their favour (operating costs wise) to continue.
F&B merchants have been appealing to delivery platforms for weeks since the worsening of the COVID-19 situation to reduce their commissions. So far, the delivery apps refused, further profiting from the COVID-19 crisis.
We have been huge advocates of food delivery services since they first started in Singapore several years ago. We order our meals using food delivery apps at least 3-4 times a week. But we have to say that it is time for us to minimise using food delivery apps because they are charging up to 40% commission for deliveries and to order directly from restaurants, eateries and hawkers as much as possible to support them. #SaveFnbSG
Good news, ice cream lovers! Chip Guan Heng, one of Singapore’s oldest ice cream distributors, is now offering island-wide delivery for their old-school ice cream at S$4 per block. Yes, it’s the same S$1.20 hawker ice cream that Singapore is known for, except that you can get an entire block at S$4.
To place an order, you must have a minimum order of $50 for delivery. Free delivery is offered for orders above S$80.
If you’re already a cooking whizz, getting through mealtimes during the Circuit Breaker won’t be much of a problem for you. However, if you have two left feet in the kitchen and are constantly accidentally breaking or setting things on fire, this month-long stay-home period may be a bit of a problem for you.
Fret not, as there are actually a number of recipes out there that do not require you to use a stove or anything else that may potentially burn down your house. Sometimes, all you just need is a microwave, and if you love scrambled eggs, we have a quick and easy recipe for microwaved scrambled eggs. You can easily whip these up for breakfast or a midday snack while you work from home.
If you’re a seafood lover like us, you would know how satisfying it is to chow down on some uber fresh seafood. However, due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak, it has become increasingly harder for us to get ourselves some quality produce from under the sea.

This means that you don’t have to slap on a surgical mask and make a panicked trip to the market yourself. With that, here are 11 Fresh Seafood & Fish Delivery Services in Singapore to order seafood online.
From massive pearl groupers to thick cuts of Norwegian salmon, these places have everything you need to prepare that seafood feast you’ve been craving for.
Now that eating out is no longer an option, takeouts are going to make more frequent appearances in our daily routines. But, we’re not complaining.
With numerous restaurants in Singapore pushing out new takeaway menus and offers during this COVID-19 period, takeaways have never looked more exciting. Think barbecued meats platters and paellas still sizzling in greased pans.
Sure, heading out to get food may not be as convenient as just boiling up some instant noodles. But, let’s do what we can to support our F&B businesses during this trying period.
We’ve rounded up 34 restaurants in Singapore with new takeaway menus and promotions during this circuit breaker! So, grab your containers and bags and let’s get down to business.

In light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, many establishments in the Food & Beverage industry have sadly been very hard hit. With recent measures being put in place by the government, a number of restaurants, bars and cafes across Singapore have been forced to close their shutters or move to takeaway and delivery options just so that we can try to flatten the curve of COVID-19 infections.
We have here a list of places that have temporarily closed their doors during this period and will not be having delivery or takeaway options. We sincerely hope that the situation gets better soon so these businesses can start their engines again to make back whatever losses they may incur right now.
May we all stay safe during this exhausting period!
