Pizza Delivery Singapore: Worth It?

Today I’m back with another food delivery review! And I’m reviewing Pizza Delivery Singapore!

Pizza delivery is no stranger in the local food delivery scene and not as unique as Sushi delivery I would say. So how does this new player score up against the big players in the market? It is listed as one of the Best Pizza Deliveries in Singapore by Best In Singapore. Is it worth it? Let’s put it to the test and find out!

What I ordered from Pizza Delivery:

At the time of order, there’s a buy 2nd pizza at 50% off. So I indicated the full price and the price I paid in the bracket.

Promotion at the time of my order

The current promotion is Buy 1 Free 1 for Medium and Large pizzas.

  • La Amatriciana Pizza – Small $13.90 ($6.95)
  • Beef Salami Pizza – Small $13.90 ($6.95)
  • Mistocarne Pizza – Small $16.90 ($8.45)
  • Chicken Alfredo Pizza – Small $16.90 ($8.45)
  • Margherita Pizza – Small $13.90 ($6.95)
  • Seafood Pizza – Small $16.90 ($8.45)
  • Mozzarella Cheese Stick $11.90
  • Fish Finger $9.90

The Pizza Delivery experience and the food itself

During the time of order, we were asked to select a time slot and I picked 6.15pm to 7.15pm. The order arrived slightly late at 7.20pm and the time sticker states that the food was prepared and ready at about 5.50pm.

Yes, the pizzas and side dishes are not even lukewarm by the time i received it. I did not reheat the food before I ate it, because I’ve always been receiving hot pizzas if not at least warm pizzas from other places. What if I ordered the pizzas at a location where I don’t have kitchen access?

I would also like to add in the fact that 1 side dish item was missing from my order. I ordered 2x Mozzarella Cheese Sticks (I love cheese that’s why the double order) and they only delivered one. Thankfully the customer service is pretty top-notch and they rectify the order pretty quickly.

This time around, I timed it and I received it within 20 minutes of dispatch. The 2nd box of Mozzarella Cheese Sticks came slightly lukewarm and definitely tasted better too. The Fish Finger is pretty decent though, I would recommend that over Cheese Sticks. You can get better Cheese Sticks for less elsewhere.

Let’s focus on the Pizza

My order missing 1x serving of Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

I ordered 6 different pizzas in small size (6inches) as I wanted to try as many variations as possible. I like that their pizzas are thin crust by default as I’m not a thick crust fan.

Margherita Pizza

They always say if you want to know if a pizza place is good, try their plain cheese aka Margherita Pizza. And I’m sorry to say this pizza did not perform up to expectations. The cheese is exceptionally thin for a plain cheese pizza.

Seafood Pizza

Out of the 6 pizzas ordered, the Seafood Pizza and the Beef Salami pizzas are the better tasting ones. The Mistocarne is not too bad too and you can avoid ordering the rest. 😛

Worth It or Not?

Comparing with the bigger players in the market, I feel that Pizza Delivery has got lots to catch up. One part is certainly to find out how others deliver their pizzas hot to the consumers. They probably have to work on the delivery times per dispatch. It’s rather odd that one driver delivered in an hour and the order only used 20 minutes.

Worth It Rating:

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

The customer service definitely made up for the additional 0.5 stars.

  • Kappa Maki (Vegetarian) – $3.90
  • Chuka Kurage – $4.67
  • Kani Salad – $8.30

  • Champion Floss Maki – $15.90

Do note that as I wasn’t sent any raw items like sashimi or raw sushi, I will not be able to comment on their freshness with regards to the raw fish menu available on their site.

With the recent Circuit Breaker and Singapore opening up in Phases, I find that a Sushi Delivery service that delivers island-wide is one of their plus points. I’ve very limited sushi choices that deliver to my place so it’s kinda sad.

Let’s get down to the food itself!

My favourites out of the list of items would be the Kani Salad, Champion Floss Maki and the Shrimp Crouton. The Yam Net Sponge Roll will make it to the list if only it can retain it’s crispiness when it was delivered to me. The outer layer was a bit soggy when I received it. But the filling is nice though, not too sweet and jelat!

I really like the Kani Salad and even added the Chuka Kurage for more bite! It’s really refreshing and ingredients used are definitely fresh!

The Champion Floss Maki is a interesting rendition of a traditional maki roll and it’s tad of sweetness blends pretty well with the savoury ingredients.

Shrimp Crouton managed to maintain its crisps and the filling is very generous.

Sushi Delivery Shipping Rates

All orders under $60 will be at a flat rate of $5.90.
Orders above $60 will be enjoying free delivery.
Sushi Delivery also provides a 1 hour delivery service, they will delivery within the hour of the time-slot chosen to your doorstep!

Worth It or Not?

Judging based on just the items I’ve received. I will recommend to order only if you really do not have available Sushi takeaway options nearby and if you are really craving for Sushi.

Price-wise is decent and they do have a wide range of Maki rolls and Donburis to choose from.

Worth It Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Durian Delivery Right To Your Doorstep!

It’s the Durian season!!! Who’s a fan of Durians here?

Durian Delivery Singapore

With things going digital nowadays, there’s no need to go to Geylang, Balestier, Toa Payoh or where ever to have your Durian fix!

Durian Delivery Singapore

Durian Delivery Singapore brings you fresh Durians straight from the plantation in Malaysia, pack them into boxes on the same day and deliver right to your doorstep! So you can enjoy the King of Fruits within the comfort of your own home!

Royal MSW a.k.a Old Tree MSW 

I’m sure many of you are very familiar with the Mao Shan Wang variety of the Durian. And before Durian Delivery, I thought that Mao Shan Wang is about the best of Durians you can get but they have something even better! The Royal Mao Shan Wang which are harvested from old Mao Shan Wang trees, giving the fruit deeper flavors.

Soft Creamy Durian from Durian Delivery

I was sent the two varieties and was thinking in my heart, really got difference meh? Or is it just a marketing gimmick, especially since the Royal MSW variety is slightly higher in price. I tried both, and immediately decided to keep the Royal MSW to myself and shared the regular MSW with my Father, who’s like a Durian Connoisseur. 😛

But even the regular MSW from Durian Delivery garner pretty high ratings from my Father. My brother brought home some MSW from another Durian stall and it’s good but not as rich in flavor as those from Durian Delivery and the flesh is also not as soft.

But I really recommend the Royal MSW, it’s so rich in taste and just the right amount of bitter to sweet ratio! And as it’s delivered fresh right to your doorstep, it’s really soft and creamy and aromatic! You can smell the nice aroma the moment you peel off the plastic!

And I must say the price range from Durian Delivery Singapore is very reasonable! One box of 400g(de-husked) of Royal MSW is only $29.90! (The above image is what you get in one box of 400g! Very worth it right!)

Did I also mentioned that both variants of the MSW have got really thin seeds? So you really get a lot of flesh to dig into!

Get your Durians from Durian Delivery Singapore today! I’m definitely going to get my Durian fix from them in future!

XOXO,

Tokyo Travelogue: A Day Of Eating!

Tokyo Travelogue: Makan Edition

No Tokyo travelogue will do without food. Food is probably the most essential of a trip I would say, especially when you’re travelling in Japan!

So I’ve spent a day in Tokyo eating to my heart’s fill before spending the night at Tokyo Tower enjoying the night view~

Tsukiji Fish Market

Need I say more about anything on Tsukiji Fish Market? It’s the place to go to for fresh sashimi and sushi! And what’s better than starting the day with an awesome Sushi breakfast? Tsukiji Fish Market was scheduled to move in Nov 2016 but plans were delayed until winter season in 2017/2018 earliest! So I say, plan your trips there soon! You never know when they might decide to bring forward the move date!

Other than fresh fish, you can find dried goods store around the market where you can get those Dried Hotate for souvenirs! Fresh fruits can be seen in the market too!

And not forgetting the Tamagoyaki! This is a must try!

Grilled Hotate! Fresh and juicy!! Need I say more?

End your Tsukiji trip with a soft serve and you can never go wrong with Matcha when in Japan! (^.^)/

Just follow the crowd from Tsukiji Train station and you find your way to the fish market! You should be safe as long as you pass by Tsukiji Hongan-ji~

Pablo Cafe Omotesando 

Other than Baked, Pablo would be the other famous Cheese tart from Japan. Since I’m in Omotesando, how can I miss the opportunity to visit the cafe right? There will be a slight queue for dining in at the cafe at level 2, so do take note of that.

Ordered their original cheese tart served warm. It comes with maple syrup and vanilla ice cream which makes it more delish! I really love how fluffy the cheese tart is. It literally melts in your mouth! Prefer this over Baked personally and can’t wait for them to have an outlet in Singapore.

Luke’s Lobster Omotesando 

tokyo travelogue luke lobster

I first knew of Luke’s Lobster from a friend’s Instagram post and I tell myself I need to try it out when I’m in Tokyo.

I reached Luke’s Lobster around late afternoon 4.30pm and sadly they have sold out of their famous Lobster roll!! (>~<)/ But since we’re there, I’ve decided to try out their other options which is the Shrimp and Crab roll. I love how they have half and half option so we can try out two flavours in one roll! Though I must say that I wished I have gone straight for the Crab roll option because that is so good! The bread is warm and soft and oh so fragrant! I shared one roll with my mum as we both had quite a lot to eat already but I dare say I could finish one whole roll myself!

If you want to try out their signature Lobster roll, would definitely recommend you to visit earlier in the day! And I must say, I’m so loving the peaceful and vibrant vibe of Omotesando. Just sitting by Luke’s Lobster enjoying my roll and people watch. That is a lifestyle to look forward to. (^.^)/

Pokemon Cafe Singapore – Overall Review

joyceforensia-pokemon-cafe

Perhaps it was AFA weekend, but the queue was pretty short and fast when I was there on a Saturday afternoon around lunch time. The waitress will go down the queue explaining the menu to you and taking your orders. Once there’s a vacant table available, they will lead you into the cafe to your seats. But not before collecting the freebies based on your orders and taking a photo with the backdrop!

The food was served pretty quickly and the taste is pretty decent. It’s not fantastic, but it’s not bad either. Drinks wise pretty much taste like normal soft drinks. The latte and milk might taste better but they don’t come with free charms. LOLOL.

alola-volcano

Is it worth a visit? If you’re a huge fan of Pokemon/Pikachu, I would say yes. But of course, once is enough. They do have merchandise available for purchase even if you don’t dine at the cafe. And they do have a Pikachu Praline Cake at $9.90 available for takeaways too.
