Easy dinner and drink combos
We may already be in Phase 3, but food delivery has become a mainstay – especially when you’re too nua to brave the crowds or too busy to whip up a meal.
Here’s a piece of good news – the newly launched CDL eMall is offering free islandwide* delivery for orders above $30 from now till 31st January 2021. Better yet, you can order from up to three stores per mall. Mix and match items from F&B and retail merchants at City Square Mall, Palais Renaissance and Republic Plaza – so you can sneak in that extra BBT too.
To help you get the most of this deal, here are 5 easy dinner and drink combos to get:
*Island-wide delivery available except for locations at Sentosa, Tuas, Jurong Island, Pulau Ubin and other off-shore islands.
1. Carbs and BBT to fuel those who are always OT-ing
We’ve all been through days when work gets so overwhelming you’d forget you even had a stomach. To fuel you through a long day, get the Super Dario Extra ($11) – a freshly baked lasagne that’s made with a generous portion of minced beef and Pecorino, a type of sheep’s cheese.
Pair it with The Whale Tea’s Volcanic Whale Sapphire ($4.80) for an extra boost of nutrients. The blue liquid on top isn’t just syrup with food colouring; it’s a liquid made from spirulina, a superfood that helps you clock in vitamins, copper and iron. This drink also uses peach gum as an alternative to your usual boba, a sweet jelly that’s packed with collagen and amino acids.
2. Healthier options for fitspo co-workers or those on a diet
For those who’ve resolved to eat clean for some gains this month, give yourself a break from meal preps by getting Aussie Roll’s Salmon Roll ($3.10) and The Herbal Bar’s sugar-free drinks like Hawthorn & Roselle tea ($4).
There’s also the best-selling Salmon Avocado Roll ($3.30) to opt for. If it’s just your significant other who’s on a diet, indulge in their Soft Shell Crab Roll ($3.30) or Black Pepper Duck ($3.10) instead.
For rainy days, The Herbal Bar’s double boiled soups will hit the spot, such as their Chinese Cabbage Fish Maw & Meatballs soup ($11.80). Those with sweet cravings can also get desserts like Almond Tofu with Longan ($3.50) and Herbal Jelly ($4.50).
3. Vegetarian and halal dishes to include everyone in the office
It can be tricky to decide on one place for everyone in the department to eat together, considering the varying dietary requirements there may be. To avoid having to split orders, Saute–San offers vegetarian, vegan and halal dishes that can accommodate everyone.
They’ve even got the veggie haters covered with options like the Handmade Vegan Katsu Curry Rice ($17.90) that uses a plant-based patty that tastes just like real meat. Apart from Japanese fare, they also offer Korean and Western meals such as Housemade Kimchi Pancake ($11.90) and Pasta Aglio Olio ($16.90).
4. Comfort Asian food like toast, laksa and kueh
Ondeh-ondeh, Curry Chicken With Bread and Coconut Pandan Latte.
If hearty local fare is what you’re craving, Kueh & Mee has everything from set meals like Curry Chicken With Bread ($7.90), Signature Mee Siam ($6.90) to traditional toast and kuehs such as Ondeh-Ondeh ($0.50/piece).
For drinks, they offer both traditional Kopi and Teh and cafe style coffees like latte, cappuccino and flat white. If you’re feeling adventurous, try their Coconut Pandan Latte ($5.50) that gives your daily cup of joe a local twist.
5. Steak and wine for a fancy night in with your partner
If you prefer spending quality time with bae indoors but are not quite the masterchef yet, bring the fine dining to your home with Nalati’s fancy meals. Meat lovers can get the tender Pan-seared MBS 9 Wagyu Strip-loin with Red Wine Jus ($41.52), and seafood lovers can get the Pan-seared Seabass with Butter Sauce and Spring Vegetables ($28.68).
Wash it all down with a bottle of champagne from Bar A Vin, that offers quality ones from France like Gardet ($105). Apart from champagnes, they also have a wide selection of red and white wines from countries such as New Zealand, Italy and Spain.
