Every gastronome dreams of visiting Singapore. But let’s face it, dining out is never going to be the same again. Social distancing, wearing masks, and washing your hands more times have slowly become a norm. Restaurateurs believe that dining out will not be completely wiped out, and restaurants have been putting up a fair fight. However, trying to cope with the pandemic has brought out growth opportunities no one saw coming outside the walls of the restaurant, like gourmet dining at home.

Food delivery services were on a steady rise even before the pandemic. Though affected, they bounced back quickly by adopting compulsory safety measures for kitchen and delivery staff.

Fine dining establishments have also come a long way since the coronavirus outbreak. Many gourmet restaurants and private catering businesses have successfully incorporated this delivery model into their daily operations. This new perspective came with struggles. Restaurateurs were forced to explore outside their comfort zones. This includes designing menus with time-sensitive ingredients, presentation and packaging, reliable and efficient delivery services and more.

The public has embraced the idea of enjoying a curated gourmet food at home. By letting customers take part in crafting this culinary experience to suit their tastes, a unique gastronomical journey at home is quite enticing.
