[2019 Edition] Price Guide For Tingkat Delivery Services in Singapore

GrabFood isn’t the only show in town if you’re looking for home food deliveries.

 

You have just completed a 12-hour work day and is looking forward to some personal time. But on the train, you realise that back at home, you will have to prepare a meal for yourself and the children. At home, you struggle to think of what to cook and decide to order in instead. If you are a working parent, this situation might not be unfamiliar to you.

Unlike typical food delivery services, Tingkat meals are generally healthier as they contain less salt and oil which remind us of home-cooked food. Each Tingkat lunchbox has three to five tiers, with each layer consisting of a different dish. This means a greater variety in every meal.

Most catering companies offer Tingkat delivery services on a daily or weekly basis. Whether you have no time to cook or you do not know how to cook, there is a Tingkat for you. If you have just given birth, confinement meals that are packed with nutrients will help you recover quickly.

With each Tingkat meal costing $5 on average, they are healthy yet economical. We have compiled this price guide from various caterers for you to find out which option is the best for you and your family.

Tingkat Brings The Best In Local Cuisine With The Convenience Of Ordering In

For the most value-for-money Tingkat, choose Hilltop. If you have a large family with 6 people, consider engaging Yassin Kampung or Fong Fu Food Industries. If you have just given birth, go with Tian Wei Signature’s confinement package.

If you work in the CBD area and prefer home-cooked food, the Tingkat from Fong Fu Food Industries will keep you full. Lastly, if you want to lose weight, the specially curated Tingkat from Yeyeah Delights will keep you satisfied, while allowing you to monitor your calorie count.

Despite the limited delivery areas, the general trend observed across all ten Tingkat caterers is that if the number of people increases, the price per pax is cheaper. So, pool together your family and friends to order together!
