Takeaway and delivery is the way to go since Circuit Breaker started in Singapore, and with Singapore reopening the island in phases, it will still be at least another 4 to 6 weeks before we can dine out at restaurants. Here are some of the meals we had at home in the past month, and hopefully it helps if you are looking for some inspirations.
Violet Oon Singapore Satay Bar & Grill
Another concept of VIolet Oon Singapore, Violet Oon Singapore Satay Bar & Grill is available for delivery and takeaway. We like the heavy flavours of the local Peranakan delights we tried, such as the VO Street Satay which is served with a spiced ground peanut sauce with fresh puree of pineapple along with a side of steamed rice cakes. Another dish we highly recommend is the Ayam Panggang Berempah with Nasi Kuning, which basically is grilled chicken marinated in milk and spices accompanied with a serving of glutinous and jasmine rice infused with turmeric steamed with coconut milk. Other dishes we tried and took a liking includes the Eggplant with Sambal and the Garam Asam Barramundi with Pineapple and Ginger Flower which features locally farmed Barramundi.
