This list was last updated on 28 April. The new restaurants on the list appear first. For our master list of restaurants offering delivery or takeout, click here.

01 | The Coastal Settlement 

For some sunny cafe vibes and great local food, The Coastal Settlement’s your go-to. Must-tries include the TCS Nasi Lemak with its grilled tiger prawns, baked otah and crackling fried chicken, as well as the wonderfully tender beef rendang. And for the spice-fiends, there’s the mala pot that’s brimming with fresh seafood, veggies, and Sichuan spices. 

02 | Restaurant Ibid

Brainchild of lawyer-turned-chef and MasterChef Asia champ Woo Wai Leong, Restaurant Ibid serves up mod-Chinese cuisine that’s as tasty as it is unique. We’ve got our eye on the new Guo Bao fried chicken sandwich, which is exactly what it sounds like: only with a fat, succulent chicken cutlet that’s marinated in a unique house blend of spices wedged between a lightly toasted brioche. Top it off with their Lao Gan Ma slaw — also a new addition — for the ultimate food-coma binge.

03 | The Coconut Club

Few things are as comforting as a warm, fluffy bed of coconut rice. For all your Nasi Lemak-related cravings, The Coconut Club has what you’re after: pair your rice with an assortment of mains (chicken, fried fish, otah…) paired with delicious homemade sambal chili. Round it off with a plate of wobbly, sweet coconut jelly for a satisfying finish.

04 | New Ubin Seafood

Who can say no to a hearty tze char dinner? Certainly not us. Thankfully New Ubin Seafood now offers islandwide delivery with its plethora of dishes: if you can imagine it, you can order it. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by choice, go with one of their many set menus — our favourite’s the one with har cheong kai, crispy pork jowls, Hong Kong-style black halibut and salt and pepper pork. 

05 | Quentin’s

For traditional, home-made Eurasian food, there’s really no place better than Quentin’s. A wide selection of their menu is now available for takeaway, including classics like the fiery pork chili garam andbraised Babi pongteh. Go with a slice of Sugee cake for dessert to complete the ‘made-by-grandma’ experience.

06 | Kam’s Roast

If you’re craving for traditional Chinese roasts, Kam’s Roast has just about every fowl you can imagine — all cooked to glistening, crackling perfection. On top of regular char siew, they’ve even got Iberico pork. To thank customers for their support, Kam’s Roast is also giving out complimentary portions of its immunity boosting herbal soup — a century-old recipe that’s made with a plethora of nourishing Chinese herbs — with every order.

07 | Candlenut

For heart-warming and stomach-sating foods, you can’t go wrong with the world’s first (and only) Michelin-starred Peranakan restaurant. They’ve served up an extensive takeaway menu that includes signatures like their Chef’s Mum’s Chicken Curry and Westholme Wagyu Beef Rib Rendang. Of course, it isn’t a Peranakan meal without some homemade kueh — finish off your dinner with Candlenut’s rendition of the two-tiered kueh salat for some very sweet dreams.

08 | Violet Oon Singapore

When it comes to Peranakan food, trust Violet Oon to know what’s good. Her line of restaurants now offers a spread of delectable favourites available for takeaway and delivery. Slurp up some hearty beef hor fun or dig into a vibrant plate of dry laksa — if you’re looking for something a little different, try the meatless meatball rendang, or their new Impossible satay. But for a real classic, go with the classic Shepherd’s Pie Tray: we recommend a large helping.

09 | The Halia at Singapore Botanic Gardens

Missing the outdoors? The Halia will deliver a refreshing dose of nature to you with its new menu of local favourites, all inspired by its verdant settings. We love the chili crab spaghettini (which is exactly as delicious as it sounds) — and if you need something to temper the heat, you’ll love their spread of homemade drinks and juices like the Masala chai and calamansi quencher.

10 | Xiao Ya Tou

There’s modern Singaporean food, and then there’s Xiao Ya Tou. If you prefer your local faves with a bit of a modern kick, you’ll be glad to know that the quirky restaurant is offering not only takeaways, but a free drink for you to sip on while you wait in your car. Be sure to get the XYT Lu Rou Fan and extra helpings of their deep-fried Hakka wings.

11 | Po

Don’t underestimate the mood-boosting effect of a lovingly-made popiah. Po’s delectable rolls are recreated from traditional family recipes, so you know you’re getting the real deal. Their classic popiah set includes 4 skins and classic fillings and condiments that’s filling enough for two, though they have some pretty darn good mains as well — we love the wagyu cheek rendang and the warm-your-insides seafood congee.

12 | Scaled by Ah Hua Kelong

Fresh seafood doesn’t have to be a distant dream. As one of Singapore’s first fish farmer-owned restaurants, you’re guaranteed the freshest catch of the day delivered right to your doorstep. Go for the pan seared seabass (whose assam broth will keep you warm and sated for hours), and pair it with a side of binge-worthy Kelong Fried Collar.
