With busy work-from-home schedules and restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s okay if you don’t always find time to cook. Food delivery services have been a blessing. We love the convenience. However, we also believe that good things shouldn’t be rushed. Here’s why you should choose local & private chef food delivery in Singapore, like Esseplore. 

1. Fresh Ingredients 

It’s no secret restaurants enhance the flavour of food, adding extra unnecessary calories and saturated fats to meals. Furthermore, to keep food costs low, some restaurants utilise highly processed ingredients in their recipes. As a hyperlocal food delivery service in Singapore, Esseplore ensures that our chefs only use fresh ingredients. There are many reasons why they are better. Using fresh ingredients retains the nutrients in produce with natural hydration and provides flavour-authenticity to the dish. Try it! Also, it’s the healthier choice. 

2. Healthier 

The health factor is one of the main reasons local chefs food delivery in Singapore is better than take-out. Many studies have shown that most restaurant foods contain higher amounts of sodium, saturated fat, total fat, and overall calories. With Feastbox’s meals, you can trust that there are no preservatives, food colourants, additives, MSG, or instant mixes. Instead, our feasts often contain more vegetables, fewer carbohydrates, and less fat. The ingredients used are also carefully cleaned before preparation, retaining vital nutrients like vitamins and minerals. Plus, our chefs prepare your food from their heart, like you’re a part of their family. You’ll definitely feel that love and consideration for your health. 

3. Hygienic Preparation 

Good hygiene is EVERYTHING! A chef’s kitchen must be sparkling and sanitised after every preparation. Esseplore is strict about this aspect and ensures all chefs go through a meticulous screening process. They have to meet the requirements set by the Singapore Food Agency for food safety and hygiene and the Fire Safety and Shelter Department. The chefs’ food and kitchen quality standards are also evaluated by the Executive Head Chef, Resident Chef, and Chef Recruitment Officer. And while it isn’t necessary to get a Food Safety Certification, Esseplore considers it a MUST. From the kitchen to the food delivery to your home, we make sure your meal is received safe, clean and warm! 

4. Diverse Cuisines & Chefs 

These meals are a great way to explore other food cultures. It’s one of the many perks of ordering from Esseplore. Our community of chefs come from diverse backgrounds, and many of them specialise in multiple cuisines. These menus are usually filled with family recipes. Rest assured, you’ll be getting an authentic taste of the food you try. For example, Dine like the Chettiars is an authentic Chettinad feast from a small region in India by our Chef Latha Chandrasekaran, and the Baba Nyonya Delicacy is a truly Nonya meal by our Peranakan Chef duo, Nonya_licious. With Feastbox, there’s always something new and exciting, a cuisine and feast waiting for you to try. 

5. Support Local 

Support local food businesses like home chefs

No doubt the pandemic has affected everyone in some way, including our friends in the Food & Beverage Industry. Feastbox is an initiative that emerged in early 2020 as a way to help local specialty &  private chefs, and food entrepreneurs to continue selling their food from home without bearing the brunt of extra costs. Getting food delivery helps us support these chefs and allows us to help them build their own business.
