Any food-lover will tell you that eating is an experience; so over at Deliveroo, we're always trying to think of ways to make your experience more fun. Singapore's food scene may be teeming with buzzy new restaurants, but for a change of scenery, why not take things outside and get closer to Mother Nature with a picnic. Plain sandwiches and fruit? Not on our watch! Forget the basket - just bring something to sit on and leave the rest to us. After your main meal, take your picnic to the next level and get these sweet treats delivered right to your mat.
1) Not-so-plain Vanilla
Despite their name, this bakery is anything but plain; with Strawberry White Chocolate, Dark Chocolate Ganache, Carrot, Cookies and Cream and their legendary Red Velvet, Plain Vanilla's got all the flavours in the cupcake rainbow. The bakery claims to use only the finest ingredients and it only takes one taste of their rich vanilla cream cheese icing to know that they're telling the truth.
Recently, the bakery has committed to reducing their carbon footprint and they're making it easy for customers to adopt an eco-conscious lifestyle alongside them. In addition to implementing a no plastic-straw policy, they offer a small discount when customers bring their own cups or lunch boxes. To reduce the amount of single-use disposables, they also retail reusable cups and bags. Order from Plain Vanilla and you can eat good, do good and feel good all at once!
2) Get cultured
At just 113 Kcal per 100g, you can have your frozen yogurt and eat it too. Yolé imports their ingredients all the way from Spain and Italy to make the perfect blend of tart and sweet dessert. We're obsessed with this brand's take on artisanal yogurt and with the innovative flavours that they come up with. Legend has it that there are over 1000 topping combinations available, so basically, you're spoilt for choice. Even though things have been heating up in Singapore lately, we vow to get your frozen yogurt to you the way it was meant to be eaten – frozen.
3) Tarte by Cheryl Koh localises their flavours
