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.

Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow

I must say that the stars aligned when Best In Singapore approached me to review Origin’s latest Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow as I’ve been having sleeping issues with my current pillow. 

Sleep Quality is very important and hence it’s advisable to invest on your bed, beddings and pillow!

Waking up with shoulder and neck aches. Having to toss and turn to find that perfect comfortable position so you can fall asleep. Having to stack pillows together to get that neck support. I could go on whole day about the issues that I faced with my old pillow. Long story short, I wasn’t having quality sleep and that pillow was a huge contributor to that.

Now when I was asked to review the Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow I’m like sure. I based it on one very simple rule if it’s able to improve the quality of my sleep.

Features of Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow

Before I go on, I need to put a disclaimer that I’m not paid for this review ok? I’m only provided the pillow for the review!

My own pillow was a memory foam pillow and I assumed it’s like one of the best types out there but apparently I was wrong!

Origin’s pillow is made of Latex Foam which is denser than memory foam. It will mould to the shape of your head to give you the right amount of support. It is also hypoallergenic so you won’t have to worry if you’ve sensitive skin or any sort of allergies. This was a pretty important characteristic to me as I felt that at this age, I really need a dense pillow that gives my neck support while I sleep.

Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow:
Dense yet soft to touch with Tencel Removal Cover

I’m sure everyone experiences their pillows yellowing after some time and even if it’s still good, you tend to not want to keep it anymore. Origin’s pillow included a removable cover made of Tencel Fabric which is so so soft and also has that cooling effect. This is definitely a plus point to me as I’m a Tencel convert and only using Tencel sheets nowadays.

The Verdict: Worth it?

Loving my new Origin Latex Foam Pillow

I woke up with no aches from the very first night I slept with the Origin pillow. And after one week plus of sleeping with it, I can say that it really did improve my sleep quality! I can fall asleep quicker without having to adjust my pillows or the height.

My Rating for the Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

There’s nothing I dislike about it but there’s always room of improvement for everything! If you like a dense and firm pillow which you still can sink into, I highly recommend the Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow!

Sushi Delivery Singapore – Worth It?

Featuring Sushi Delivery Singapore aka SushiDelivery.SG today in partnership with Best In Singapore.

Inspired by the famed buzz feed Worth It series on Youtube which I’m a huge fan of. I’m going to start a Worth It series on my blog, reviewing all things from food to skincare and even services!

This is the tasting menu:

  • California Maki – $10.90
  • Kappa Maki (Vegetarian) – $3.90
  • Chuka Kurage – $4.67
  • Kani Salad – $8.30
  • Shrimp Crouton – $4.90
  • Takoyaki – $4.90
  • Yam Net Sponge Roll – $5.90
  • 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,

Hand Bouquet By Floral Garage Singapore

Online Florists on the bloom

Flowers is a great choice of gift for many occasions. Be it celebrations, or just sending flowers to a significant someone to make their day.

With technology these days, you no longer have to head to the florist physically to get the flowers. With many online florists available, sending flowers is as easy as a click of the button. And you don’t have to worry about last minute flower purchase as you can plan ahead and place an order in advance with online florists.

Lovely Blooms by Florist Garage Singapore

Florist Garage have recently sent me a surprise hand bouquet and even though I was expecting a flower delivery, I still got a pleasant surprise as they sent me my favorite Daisies! Plus, receiving flowers is always a mood brightener. Well, unless someone send you a bouquet of Chrysanthemum. 😛 (You’ll get my joke if you understand the Chinese culture.)

giselle floral garage

This bouquet named Giselle, is one of the popular bouquets at Floral Garage. It’s such a lovely bouquet of pink and white Gerberas (a type of daisy) and is a great alternative to the usual roses. I was inspired by the bouquet that I created a makeup look based on the colors of the lovely blooms that week.

But if you prefer roses with the same bouquet style, they provide alternatives too!

For an example this bouquet called Spirited Away that is actually recommended as an alternative to Giselle for something similar but with Roses. It’s also cheaper depending on the number of roses.

Floral Garage Subscription

Have you heard of a flower subscription? This is my first time hearing about it and I do find it very useful especially when you have multiple occasions coming up within the next week months. You can plan ahead for monthly or weekly deliveries or according to the special dates coming up. And you can either choose from the bouquets on site, ask for customization or leave it to the team at Floral Garage to surprise your loved ones! You can also sign up for a subscription yourself if you love flowers and enjoy receiving flowers on a regular basis. You don’t have to tell anyone that you’re the one sending flowers to yourself! 😛

So now you know where to go when you need to order a lovely bouquet of flowers for that special occasion.

XOXO,
Joyce.Forensia
