Are you a working mother who is strapped for time and unable to whip up yummy Asian meals for your family? We bring you a list of nine tingkat delivery services for your consideration
You have just reached home after a long tiring day at work. The kids need help with their homework, the laundry needs to be done, and dinner needs to be put on the table. On days like these, even dining out seems like a chore and you find yourself having exhausted your list of fast food delivery options − not that those would do your family’s health any good. So what now? Mums, cut yourself some slack and engage a tingkat delivery service that deliver sumptuous meals right to your doorstep at dinnertime.
A tingkat is a type of metal lunchbox comprising stacked tiers, each containing a different dish. Also known as tiffin carriers, they are used widely in some South Asian countries. Tingkat delivery services here offer a wide range of items on their menus, so there’s no way your tastebuds will be bored! Here’s a list of nine tingkat delivery services to trust your family’s lunch or dinner with:
1. Tingkat Delivery Singapore
Tingkat Delivery Singapore prides itself on offering its customers healthy food that boasts quality and flavours similar to your home cooked meals. They even have a team of nutritionists who put together well-balanced menus that cater to the health and tastebuds of Singaporeans! How’s that for dedication? Their tingkat menu offers two menu options for both lunch and dinner: Premium and Superior.
Customers agree that Tingkat Delivery Singapore pays close attention to the ingredients used in their tingkat meals and have even commented that their dishes are neither oily nor salty. Sounds perfect for the health-conscious Singaporean family!

2. KCK Food Catering
KCK Food Catering offers daily dinner delivery that will reach your doorstep in convenient microwaveable containers − so there’s no need to trouble yourself transferring the food to a microwave-safe container for reheating. The downside? They only deliver to selected areas in Singapore, so do be sure to check on that before placing an order. If you’re not decided on whether you want tingkat meals on a long-term basis, start off with their ten-day trial package first!

To make the meals of Singaporeans enjoyable with their carefully planned menu. It changes every fortnight, which means no room for you to get bored if you sign up for their tingkat delivery service. Both lunch and dinner options are available here. You can also opt for your meals to be delivered in microwaveable containers instead of in a tingkat.
