Trying out UberEATS with Ayam Penyet President (Lucky Plaza)


It was another one of those days when we were feeling lazy. Too lazy to cook, too lazy to go out to buy food. Since I had a Groupon voucher for UberEATS lying around - $2.99 for $20 for first orders - we decided to use it to order in.

Trying out foodpanda with Warung Surabaya


It was a stifling hot afternoon. Mom did not feel like cooking dinner, and neither of us felt like going out for dinner or even to da pau (pack food) back. Our fridge was near empty as well as we were only going to the supermarket the next day. 

So what to do? At 6pm we decided to check out food delivery websites.

Ka Soh / Swee Kee Fish Head Noodle House - Menu

Har cheong gai on top, fish soup at the bottom, small tub of pork lard in the middle on the left
Yesterday afternoon I was in the Telok Ayer area near Swee Kee Fish Head Noodle House. I had not had their fish noodle soup for at least six months and hoped to dapau something back for dinner. Unfortunately they do not serve customers in between lunchtime and dinnertime. A friend, tempted by my talk of hot crispy har cheong gai, went down that evening and sent me pictures of his san lor hor fun, har cheong gai and two pyramids of fried pork lard.

The Salad Shop at UOB Plaza 2

A third shop selling salad in the Raffles Place area is The Salad Shop at UOB Plaza 2. Its location is not very obvious, as it is at the back of the building facing the river. But all you have to do is to take the road in-between Standard Chartered building and UOB Plaza 2, towards the river, then turn left, and you're there.

SaladStop! at Chevron House

Image from http://www.saladstop.com.sg

Lots of salad bars have sprung up around Raffles Place, and the demand has definitely warranted the truckloads of fresh vegetables being delivered here everyday. SaladStop! is a player that has (I think) the most outlets around Singapore, and there are two just in the Raffles Place area. It is currently my favourite, just for offering the most bang for your buck.
