Ah, it’s March… where has all the time gone? Marking off the slew of holidays and long weekends off our calendars, most of us have since returned to our usual routines. If you’ve put self-care on the back-burner for the past few months, it’s time to kick back and relax. Don’t forget the upcoming March holidays—a good opportunity for spending quality time with your loved ones. Regardless, if you’re scouring for an easy way to fill up your empty schedule, chilling out with a nice meal at home is always a good idea. Rejuvenate your days with new restaurants on Oddle Eats in March 2021, complete with islandwide delivery.
Be covered for family meals (to celebrate the young ones’ term break) and solo candlelit dinners at home with these delivery spots. Good time? You bet!
Our first stop for the day is Blimpie, a deli that has its roots in a neighborhood in New Jersey and serves up sub sandwiches.
At the top of their list of MVPs is the bestselling Blimpie Best (from $10.50), with a double whammy of turkey ham and oven-roasted turkey, plus beef salami and pepperoni. Finally, the fillings are topped with provolone cheese and a drizzle of red grape vinegar and olive oil. Feeling extra hungry? Upgrade your pass to The Blimp (from $13.50), which comes with fresh roast beef instead of turkey ham.
With islandwide delivery, there’s no need to take the MRT… or the subway.(Ba-dum-tss.) Time to dig into these subs in the comfort of your home!

On the drinks menu, they’ve got the Hoppy 10 ($6.50), a special brew for their 10th anniversary. Evergreen options include the smooth and light-bodied 33.1 Blond Lager ($6.50), a more intense 33.3 Stout ($6.50) with an aftertaste that is reminiscent of coffee and bitter chocolate, and the 33.9 Wheat Beer ($6.50) with hints of banana.
5. Swatow City Restaurant
Priding itself on serving the most authentic Teochew-style seafood on our shores, Swatow City Restaurant is the next place you’ve got to add to your to-try list.
And, yes, Teochew-style meals just aren’t complete without braised dishes on the table. An essential in this category is the Teochew Braised Sliced Duck 潮州卤鸭 (from $19). The dish is painstakingly prepared by chefs from Shantou, Guangdong, the very place that inspired Swatow’s Teochew fare. Can’t get more authentic than this!
Can’t make up your mind? The Set Menus (2 pax for $48, 4 pax for $98, 6 pax for $138) will solve all your woes. All sets come with Soup of the Day, Teochew Braised Sliced Duck with Bean Curd, and even a Mango Pudding for dessert. Convenient, delicious, and even more fuss-free with islandwide delivery via Oddle Eats!
6. Cajun On Wheels
Ready for a real catch? Reel in the soulful flavours of Louisiana and Creole-style seafood with Cajun On Wheels, delivering islandwide to your home. What’s more, they are halal-certified! Great for sharing, the Poseidon Bucket ($98 for 2 pax) features Sri Lankan Crab, Prawns, White Clams, Blue Mussels, and more with a sauce of your choice.
Expecting more guests? The Olympian Bucket ($226 for 5-6 pax) will please even the pickiest of the Greek gods (yes, even Zeus himself). It’s a mega-upsized version of the Poseidon Bucket, but with a generous serving of Boston Lobster to top it all off. Can’t help but be shell-fish when it’s this good.
Also, do try their infusion of Cajun cooking with more traditional Malay flavours. For one, the Charcoal Grilled Giant Squid ($20) is grilled with Kicap Manis and served with a Sambal Matah dip and sides. Who knew New Orleans’ soul food could go so well with our own?
Since its inception in 1998, Riverwalk Tandoorhas established itself as one of the biggest Indian restaurant chains in Singapore. The Tandoori Chicken ($18 for 6 pcs, $30 for 12 pcs) is something you can’t miss out on. Seasoned with yoghurt and masala, the chicken is broiled in an authentic, old-school tandoor oven. Prepared in the same way, the Tandoori Jhingha ($20 for 6 pcs, $35 for 12 pcs), or roasted tiger prawns, are also delightfully smoky and yummy.
Bigger groups, have the North Indian Chicken Bento Set ($54.50 for 5 pax) sent to your home with islandwide delivery. It comes with garlic naan and basmati rice to pair with butter chicken and the lentil-based dhall tadka. Plus, it comes with gulab jamun (deep-fried milk balls soaked in sugar syrup) for a sweet end to your meal!
8. Casa Verde
If you’re a big fan of Peperoni Pizzeria, you will love Casa Verde, both of which fall under Les Amis Group. Casa Verde, or ‘green house’ in Italian, is nestled amidst lush foliage in the heart of the Botanic Gardens. The restaurant boasts a wide selection of wood-fired thin crust pizzas and much more.
With islandwide delivery, it’s time to feast to your heart’s delight. Bring a piece of the gardens home with their wholesome, heartwarming Italian fare!
9. Jelebu Dry Laksa
Named after a road in Bukit Panjang, Jelebu Dry Laksa is a home-based business that has amassed a following for its take on the hawker dish. (Learn more about Chef Renée Tang Eyrn’s story in our Humans Of F&B feature here.)
The star of the show is the Jelebu Platter ($118 for 4-5 pax), which is topped with a whole butter-poached lobster, 4 grilled tiger prawns, crispy sakura ebi, and asari clams a.k.a. lala. Beneath all of that luxe seafood is the Signature Dry Laksa. Cooked with organic young coconut milk and 12 herbs and spices, it’s decadent without being cloying or jelak.
The Jelebu Platter is only available from Wednesdays to Sundays, so do plan out your week and order ahead!
Finding vegan food isn’t all that easy in Singapore, and it goes without saying that vegan dim sum is even more of a rarity. With Vegamama, though, having a dim sum party with your vegan friends can be more than just a dream.
Fancy yourself a plate of nasi padang with the best flavours from the Malay archipelago? With [email protected], it’s time to feast like a true-blue sultan in your own home.

12. Crystal Jade Hong Kong Kitchen
With three Crystal Jade restaurants joining Oddle Eats this month, it’s a reason to celebrate. Crystal Jade Hong Kong Kitchen, with its reimagination of timeless and irresistible Cantonese favourites, is here to bring the char chaan teng experience to your home!
Most of us see burgers as great grub for busy days, rather than something to savour and appreciate with every bite. With CARNE, helmed by Mauro Colagreco, an Italian-Argentine chef who ranked top in the World’s Best Restaurants in 2019 and owner of the 3-Michelin starred Mirazur in France, that sentiment is about to change.
This is no run-of-the-mill burger chain. As a Certified B Corporation, CARNE is committed to supporting small communities and local producers all while promoting sustainable food production. Patties are made with 100% natural grass-fed beef that doesn’t endanger native grasslands, and vegetables are cultivated without chemicals and come from local orchards, all to minimize our impact on the environment.
Feast on the Beef and chimchurri burger (from $24), with a succulent beef patty, local arugula, and organic red onion sandwiched in between pillowy buns. Otherwise, the Classic burger (from $19.50) is sure to placate your cravings without compromising ethical consumption.
