Remember when food delivery was ubiquitous during the pandemic and you could easily indulge in food from your favourite restaurants while working from home?

If you’d missed that convenience in the new normal, GrabFood has heard your wishes. 

The platform has recently rolled out a pilot for a brand-new way of ordering food delivery — Pre-Order SG Faves.

What makes Pre-Order SG Faves different from your usual pre-orders in-app on GrabFood?

It’s not a mere pre-order system, but it’s instead a way for foodies to pre-order food from some of the most renowned restaurants in Singapore — all for a delivery fee of 99 cents. At present, the pilot is available in Bukit Batok, Bukit Panjang and parts of Choa Chu Kang. 

You just have to place your order two hours before the stipulated timeslot to enjoy doorstep delivery at a flat 99-cent delivery fee. A pro tip: Delivery is free for GrabUnlimited subscribers.

Furthermore, you can now get S$3 off your pre-order on a first come, first served basis. This promo is stackable with GrabUnlimited offers.

The new pre-ordering system aims to satiate cravings for these popular merchants — many of which are usually out of delivery range or would incur higher delivery fees.

The service will be available from Mondays to Fridays, with specific merchants available each day. Merchants included in the selection so far include:

  • Eggslut
  • Chen’s Mapo Tofu
  • Tiong Bahru Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice
  • Waa Cow!
  • Shake Shack
  • Eighteen Chefs
  • Nana Original Thai Food
  • Dapur Penyet
  • Taste of India

To access Pre-Order SG Faves, make sure you’ve the latest version of the Grab app and your location set to a place within the aforementioned pilot area.

Once you’ve done so, you’d be able to scroll down on the GrabFood homepage and click on the “Pre-Order SG Faves” option on the carousel.

After that, you can select your preferred day and meal slot, and place your order.

Ultimately, the good news is that you no longer have to rack your brains on alternatives to your cravings, even if you’re staying in the west of Singapore.

The bad news? You’re going to have to find a way to burn off those extra calories — a happy problem, we say.

So follow your heart and feast on anything you desire, from Shake Shack’s signature ShackBurger (from S$9.90) as a midday pick-me-up when you WFH to decadent truffle wagyu beef bowls (S$29) from Waa Cow! as a reward after a tiring day. Because you deserve it.

Place your pre-orders via Pre-Order SG Faves on GrabFood for a delivery fee of 99 cents (free for GrabUnlimited subscribers).
