With #WFH and #HBL plus the Gov’s call to #stayhome during this “circuit breaker” period, many of us will probably be cooking more at home. Unsurprisingly, supplies are somewhat slim at the supermarkets and the queues to enter, and pay, are long. Similarly, online delivery slots for the bigger grocery retailers are filled. If you managed to get a slot, and have received your groceries, congratulations! For the rest, these online fresh food delivery stores can help bring fruits, vegetables, meats, seafood, and more to your doorstep. We’ll keep adding to the list — let us know if there’s one we should include.
Do remember to buy responsibly, and get only what you need. Finally, be patient if your order takes a little more time to reach you. In the meantime, you can still ‘dabao’ and support local hawkers (#HawkersUnited on Facebook has a good and growing list). Stay calm, mask up, and wash your hands. We’ll get through this together :)
Ah Hua Kelong
You won’t be able to sit and eat at Ah Hua Kelong’s restaurants during the circuit breaker “shutdown”. Don’t worry, you can continue to enjoy the fresh seafood that it is known for, including seabass, golden pomfret, and chunky otah, as well as ready-to-cook items such as Cantonese Steam Seabass Fillet.
Get best wet-market quality produce, including poultry, pork, beef, lamb, and seafood. BBQ and Steamboat bundles (both good for five to six persons) are available too. Tip: the German Thuringer Snails sausages are perfect on top of a bed of rosti!
Delivery times 10am – 2pm, or 2pm – 6pm, Tuesdays to Sundays
Free delivery for purchases above $50
Apart from locally-farmed, chef-quality premium barramundi cuts, Kuhlbarra also carries Norwegian salmon, as well as stocks and other ingredients that pair well with the fish.

Just add tofu and Barra slices, and you have a perfect meal in a bowl. Check out the recipes on the website; they’re contributed by well-known local chefs.

Frenz Organic Free Range Eggs
Available in Singapore for the first time, Frenz eggs are free range and certified-organic eggs from New Zealand. They come gently washed and UV-sanitised to reduce bacteria like listeria and salmonella, and are also naturally rich in protein, higher in Omega 3s, and have less saturated fats than other eggs. Available at Culina at COMO Dempsey, SuperNature Forum, and SuperNature online.
The first thing that you notice upon cracking the egg is its intense orange-coloured yolk. This is due to algae and spirulina added to the chicken feed, giving the yolk a nutty aroma, and making it extra thick and creamy. Perfect for making onsen eggs, we say.
Delivery times 10am – 6pm, Mondays to Saturdays
Free delivery for three boxes and above
