11 Tingkat Delivery Services In Singapore For Those Who Are Too Busy Or Tired To Cook

Tingkat delivery in Singapore

Not all of us have the time to cook at home, so we turn to our go-to fast food joints, restaurants, or delivery apps. But eating out isn’t always healthy and can get expensive. Since we’re already spending that money, we might as well consider healthier meal options.

Enter tingkat delivery services in Singapore, which conveniently bring balanced, home-cooked meals to our doorstep with menus that change every day. Some of these companies are even dietician-approved and Halal-certified.

What is tingkat delivery?

Tingkat delivery is a colloquial term for a system of daily delivered meals. The concept was based on how people would pack tiffin meals for their loved ones in the past. It gets its name from the fact that these meals were often packed in metal, stacked boxes, or tingkats.

It steers away from traditional food delivery, as the meals are usually family-style, with multiple dishes for sharing to eat with rice. These days, dishes can be quite inventive, with international cuisines like Western, Korean, and Thai dishes available.

Tingkat meals are also delivered across a span of days, rather than a one-off order. This allows for meal planning and time saved on cooking and cleaning.
