[Food Delivery] Shepherd's Pie SG

I'm excited for one of the latest recommendation by Best in Singapore 5 Best Pie Delivery in Singapore - Shepherd's Pie SG!

Traditionally, Shepherd’s Pies were made using sheep or lamb meat. However, as I scrolled through the website of Shepherd's Pie SG, I noticed many of the pies and items were actually made using beef - which I love!

Not only shepherd's pies, Shepherd's Pie SG also offers other items on the menu that incorporates the ingredients from their shepherd pies - such as Lagsana from the tender ground beef they have, or Mac n Cheese with the well-aged cheese they use for the pies.

These are the stuff I ended up ordering for lunch!


The food arrived warm, and within an hour of ordering. 
Needless to say, I started with the Shepherd's Pie!

Medium 400g - $18.90
Massive 800g - $29.90


Look at the creamy mash and slight cheese pull.


There is a super generous amount of meat filling underneath, packed with flavours of onions and olive. It is even good to just eat as it is, but nice too to pair it with the brown sauce that comes along. Definitely my favourite item in the delivery.

Personal Tray - $13.90

Not sure why the lagsana came labeled as Pia's Homemade Lagsana instead - I'm guessing they changed the name to tSienna’s Traditional Lasagna recently but have not updated the labels?


Again, there is plentiful beef filling and cheeses (Mozarella, Cheddar, and Ricotta cheese) packed between the lasagna sheets. The herbs also gave more depth to the flavour.


Last order of the delivery is the Mac n Cheese.

2 pax serving - $30.90


Decided to try the bacon version for a change. I'm not a fan of pork in general, but this dish does fine! It will definitely be a good alternative for people who don't / can't take beef.
I like how creamy the Parmesan and Gruyere Cheese are, contrasted by the more crispy bacon pieces.

[Food Delivery] The Fruit Hut

 


With the growing trend of food deliveries (both pre and current covid period), I'd been lusting over some rather exotic-sounding fruits that can only be commonly found on fruit delivery sites. However, most of them have a high minimum order for free delivery (e.g. $80, I can't bring myself to order $80 of fruits unless I know for certain they're damn good haha) or the delivery fees are hefty (like $15).

So I was glad that The Fruit Hut offers free delivery for fruit orders above $60, or just $9.70 for any orders below. On top of that, they offer 2-hour delivery time slots within the next hour of ordering! Talk about efficiency! They are also highly recommended by Best in Singapore - 10 Best Fruits Delivery in Singapore.


I had the following in my fruits basket delivered (top right, clockwise):
AUS Sapphire S/L Grape
Thai Golden Honey Mango
Ecuador Yellow Passion Fruit
USA Dinosaur Grenades

The Thai Golden Honey Mango are going at 3pcs for $12.90 currently. However, they were extremely sour (is it meant for thai mango salad?) so I guess I picked the wrong season to order mangoes.

Thankfully there were the dinosaur grenades to save the day!

Yes, you read correctly, GRENADES!


USA Dinosaur Grenade (3pcs) $11.00
Dinosaur grenade is actually pluot - a hybrid plant grown from a plum and an apricot. Pluots are extremely sweet and I really enjoyed them!

Here's how it looks after being sliced.



Ecuador Yellow Passion Fruit (2pcs) $6.90

One of the fruits I've been wanting to try is the Ecuador passion fruits, which is supposedly a sweet version of normal tangy passion fruits. It certainly didn't fail my expectations!
The seeds were fleshy and honeyed (not tangy at all), while maintaining that unique 'fragrance' of passion fruits. Amazing!




AUS Sapphire S/L Grape (500g) $12.00

Lastly, sapphire grapes from australia which my sister had been recommending for some time. They were definitely more saccharine than the usual grapes we get from supermarket. And most importantly - they are seedless! So convenient to eat!


My bowl of sweet vitamins for the day!

Let me know your comments if you check out The Fruit Hut!

[Food Delivery] The Acai Lab - Acai Bowl Delivery SG

The hot weather recently feels like I'm being baked alive! As much as possible, we have the airconditioning or fan on while we're at home, hopefully it will cool our bodies down. What helps is also yummy icy acai bowls delivered for our meals!

Got 2 large bowls for lunch over the weekend from The Acai Lab! Recommended by Best in Singapore as usual :) The Acai Lab is the first and only açaí delivery specialist in Singapore.


We had the Signature Acai Bowl and Berry Berries since we prefer more fruits for our acai bowls usually. We even added more fruit toppings as you can see from the picture - those small containers at the bottom :D


(Large) $15.60

This signature bowl consist of the 10 most popular toppings, giving you the perfect mouthful all in one bite! The top 10 toppings are Granola, Banana, Strawberry, Blueberry, Kiwi, Raisin, Pumpkin Seed, Coconut Flake, Cranberry, Chia Seed. I absolutely love this combination and would highly recommend this bowl!


(Large) $15.60

The Berry Berries bowl is loaded with all the antioxidants you need as it comes with all the "berry" fruits! Not only that, the acai base for Berry Berries is a special Mango-Acai blend which taste better (sweeter) than the usual acai I feel!



With 7 açaí specialised kitchens scattered around the island, The Acai Lab offers islandwide delivery within 60 minutes of ordering.

[Food Delivery] Pizza Delivery Singapore

I'm back with another food delivery review!
This time round, we had food ordered from Pizza Delivery Singapore to host our family for dinner.

There are sharing bundles available for larger groups to give you some cost savings. Unfortunately, the 3-4 pax bundle was not available on the website thus I had to order ala carte.

We chose 2 large (12") pizzas, 6 chicken wings, and 6 fried prawns to share amongst 5 pax.


I got to know about this pizza delivery service from Best in SingaporePizza Delivery Singapore is an upscale fast-casual concept that serves up artisan-style pizzas and pasta made on-demand, ready in minutes and delivered to our doorstep all under 1 hour. 

The pizza sauces and toppings are also freshly prepped every morning – right on the spot with each incoming order and fired up in custom-made Italian stone oven replica.



Hawaiian Pizza (12" 8 slices)
We have to order the classic Hawaiian! It is also always an in-house favourite with tender chicken ham slices, classic Italian tomato sauce, juicy chicken breast, capsicum peppers, mozzarella cheese and topped with succulent pineapple chunks (yay!)



Seafood Pizza (12" 8 slices)
Dive into a supreme seafood combination of juicy prawns, tuna chunks, fresh tender squid and succulent scallops drenched in mozzarella cheese and extra virgin olive oil. 

Here's a clearer photo of the pizza from the website where you can see the squid better!





Crispy Chicken Wings | 6 Pieces
This is my personal favourite as the wings are well seasoned and the skin is crispy!



Honey Mustard Prawn | 6 Pieces
The prawns look abit different from the website photos honestly. (see stock photo below) But thankfully the taste was still good. It's enough to go on its own even without the honey mustard sauce!



Pizza Delivery Singapore is having 50% when you purchase 2 pizzas (automatically deducted at check out) and you can mix any size or flavours for each pair. So, make use of the promotion to try it ;)

Besides, it offers free island-wide delivery for purchases over $60 too!

[Review] Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow

With the added strains on our bodies, due to the less-than-optimal ergonomics wfh spaces most of us may have (improper design of work space / lack of comfy chairs and what's not), I thought it would be good to treat my body better in other aspects as well. That includes getting proper rest at night, especially after a long day of strenous (okay, I'm exaggerating maybe) wfh.


Thus, I was super excited to have the chance to try out the Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow which topped the chart of 8 Best Comfortable Pillows to Buy in Singapore!


The Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow offers a responsive Latex foam support and is completed with a removable Tencel fabric pillow cover.

Benefits of Natural Latex:

Latex foam has a denser material as compared to memory foam or fibre. A Latex pillow moulds to the shape of your head which gives you the right level of sleep support. Latex materials are extremely durable with hypoallergenic properties that have lesser dust, bacteria or mould issues. It is highly recommended for people with allergies to provide a good relaxing sleep. Being impression-resistant, it can also hold its shape for many years while still feeling soft.


I'm more of a side sleeper, so noticed that this pillow comes with a thicker profile which can follow the natural curvature of the body while sleeping on my side! Also, it is quite firm which I feel that can provide better support on the head and neck. The pillow promises to cradle the head and reliefs pressure on the cervical spine.


Tencel Fabric Removable Pillow Cover:

Unlike many pillows, Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow has a removable pillow cover. Luxuriously threaded with Tencel fabric, this cover can be machine washed which helps to extend the pillow’s life in the long run. Tencel fabric is known for its natural comfort, environmentally responsible production process and being softer as compared to cotton. It is hypoallergenic, lightweight, and extremely ideal for hot weather climates.


Many thanks to Best In Singapore and Origin for sending the pillow over. Do check out other review articles on Best In Singapore if you have something in mind to get!

[Food Delivery] Sushi Delivery Singapore

What a strange period we are living in currently. Where our freedom to dine out is temporarily compromised for the past few months. I certainly appreciate the yummy food delivery services to add some cheer to our cooped-up lives :)

I was craving for some Japanese food and was introduced to Sushi Delivery Singapore by Best in Singapore just in time! As the name suggest, Sushi Delivery Singapore is online Japanese food site that does delivery services to satisfy your Japanese food craving.

First thing I noticed about Sushi Delivery Singapore is that they have a pretty wholesome selection of dishes to choose from. There is definitely bound to be something for everyone in the family!

We had a variety of sushi and appetizers/sides to try.



Kani Salad 可児サラダ
$8.30


First up is the salad which I absolutely loved. Though made up of simple ingredients, the combination of various light flavours of the greens with the salty kani (crab) stick and tobiko (roe) really delights the palate. I like the contrast of the creamy texture of the kani and sauce, against the crunchy vegetables as well.



Chuka Kurage
$4.60


The jellyfish is on the saltier end, which is probably more suited as a side/snack to go with beers and sakes!


Tako Yaki (5pcs) タコ焼き
$4.90


The takoyaki balls came with an octopus filling in each, and generously drizzled with Japanese mayonnaise and bonito flakes! This is definitely something I would order again for future deliveries.


Yam Net Sponge Roll (5pcs) ヤムネットスポンジロール
$5.90


This is not something common at a sushi place I guess? The yam net spring roll reminds me of the chinese tze char yam ring dish, with the "net" deep fried to perfection. The yam has a fragrant scent to it too!


Shrimp Crouton (5pcs) エビクルトン
$4.90


Give me shrimps anytime. What's more shrimps coated with croutons, deep fried to a golden perfection. Needless to say, they are one of my favourites. 
Also not to worry about the deep frying if you're more health conscious, they were not oily at all I feel, while maintaining the crunch!



Now, let's move on to the sushi, shall we?

Kappa Maki (1 Roll) (V) カッパマキ
$3.90


Japanese cucumber wrapped in sushi rice and nori (seaweed) never go wrong. This is vegan, by the way. Remember I said there's bound to be something for everyone at the beginning? :)


Champion Floss Maki (8pcs) チャンピオンフロスマキ
$15.90


A maki made with chicken and floss is something I have not tried before honestly. This fusion sushi roll is quite unique-tasting. The maki has grilled teriyaki chicken matched with crunchy Japanese cucumber, Parmesan and nacho cheeses, wrapped in nori (seaweed) and sushi rice. Then finally topped with savory sweet chicken floss and tobiko (flying fish roe). Share with me your thoughts if you try this! :)



California Maki (8pcs) カリフォルニアまき
$10.90


Lastly, we have the california maki, which is an all-time favourite for many people I guess? This sushi roll has a generous serving of sweet kani (crab) stick, crunchy Japanese cucumber, sweet tamago and crab stick are wrapped in nori and sushi rice and coated with a generous serving of savoury sweet tobiko. The Japanese mayonnaise certainly adds a touch of extra creaminess to this maki roll. I finished about the whole roll myself :X
