7th July 2020 by Anthia Chng 3 Min ReadIf you thought takeaways were all about boring meals to fill you up, think again. Nowadays, there are plenty of options for your foodie fix! And you can get them through your foodpanda app, which offers more than just another convenient meal. From grocery shopping to gift buying, here are five ways you can maximise your food delivery app.#1 Satisfy your cravings, stat!Get your cravings sorted in a snap with doodpanda’s fast delivery service. One of the biggest perks of using a food delivery app to order in is the short waiting time. Craving fried chicken and bubble tea? Try Chix Hot Chicken, Singapore’s first Nashville hot chicken restaurant. Wash it down with milk tea from the oh-so-popular Chicha San Chen – because no one does bubble tea as well as the Taiwanese! #2 Get your heavy household essentials deliveredOn a non-food related note, did you know you can stock up on household items on your foodpanda app? Shop from more than 40,000 products from partners such as HaoMart, FairPrice Xpress, Cheers and foodpanda’s own convenience store, pandamart! Now you don’t have to lug home big packs of laundry detergent, cleaning solutions or rice; just order from wherever you are and let the app do all the heavy lifting.#3 Celebrate special occasions at homeEven if you’re not a kitchen whizz, it’s not that hard to be the hostess with the mostest. Our solution? Cater for your mini at-home party with premium food offerings from some of the best restaurants in town! Have an all-out brunch with PS. Cafe’s signature burgers and a calorie-worthy slice of double chocolate blackout cake (we’re not judging), or treat your guests to an elegant Pan-Asian dinner from Coriander Leaf. Through July, enjoy free deliveries for selected top rated restaurants. #4 Skip the queue by ordering in advanceIf you happen to be near the restaurant, a tip is to order your food in advance and collect it at your preferred timing! Not only will you get to save on delivery, some food vendors have included a discount if you self-collect. What’s more, the waiting time is reduced!#5 Send your bestie a practical giftThere’s nothing worse than getting a gift for someone, only to find out later that they have no use for it. Surprise your loved one with a practical present that’s just a click away. Cooking enthusiasts will love the range of organic teas and kitchen essentials like honey, curry powder and ginger powder from Himalayan Premium Foods. Started in 2011, the farm in Kathmandu, Nepal, incorporates traditional, organic and sustainable farming methods, which omit chemicals or pesticides. Rain and spring water are used to watering the plants, and natural compost is used as fertilisers. Written in collaboration with:foodpanda.sgLiked this? Check out more stories on our Wine & Dine page!
