Don’t Break The Bank: Cheap Eats

Bored of the food you have in the pantry? Sick of doing the dishes? Trying to support local businesses? We feel you. If you’re looking for a way to spice up your quarantine routine, consult this list of budget – and lockdown – friendly meals.

Try Takeout

Sometimes food just tastes better out of a takeout container. Many restaurants are still offering takeout – so call ahead or take a walk, but don’t forget your mask!

This is a great way to #SupportLocal without going through a third party. Plus, it’s a nice excuse to get out of the house. You’ll save money on delivery fees and get some fresh air.

WealthUp Tip: If you’re in need of your hotpot fix pronto, the ever popular HaiDiLao is having a takeaway promo from their Clarke Quay branch in Singapore. From now till 1st June, get 35% off your order if you opt for self pick-up. Simply call in to 6337 8626 or 6337 8627 to place an order

Don’t Forget Delivery

There are countless restaurants that deliver in Singapore, so check online or call up your favorite spot. Many restaurants are offering no touch delivery options or are offering gift cards for in-store dining once restrictions are lifted. If the place your craving doesn’t offer direct delivery, try searching one of the many food delivery apps! Check out our comparison below to find the best option.

Make It From Scratch

If you’re craving restaurant quality food but don’t feel comfortable doing takeout or delivery, try a meal-kit delivery service. This is also a great way to bond as a family or relieve some stress. The best part? You can still support local businesses! Services like Cookit are Singapore-based, so you don’t have to feel guilty.
