5 Must-Have Apps For the Best Lunch Deals in Singapore
This article was written by our friends, over at Wantedly.
Convenience has taken on a whole new meaning for us Singaporeans obsessed with food. I vaguely recall a time when convenience meant microwaveable meals from 7Eleven, and the only food delivery options were either McDonald’s, pizza or Spize with exorbitant delivery fees and hour-long waiting times.
Today, a great deal for our meal is never far away – and I mean this literally. The food delivery scene is now saturated with players big and small, racing to deliver under 30 minutes. Besides food delivery, there are a plethora of food and dining related services to make sure our food obsession never ends. From 1-for-1 deals and cash back rewards, to mobile wallet payments and beating the queue for food, here’s a list of five must-have apps to help you maximise your lunch hour and snag the best deals in Singapore.

If you want to upgrade your lunch meals to restaurant food and avoid queuing in line for your food, MealPal offers a monthly subscription plan for pick-up restaurant meals in CBD, Novena, Buona Vista and Orchard.
For a monthly fee of S$95.88, The Basic Restaurant Plan gives you 12 restaurant meals for $7.99 each. The All-Access plan gives you two additional hawker meals for just $2 more. Whenever you’re up for a lunch upgrade, just make your order before 10.30am and set your pick-up time before heading down.
Watch your colleagues next door munch on their salad and fast food with jealousy; you’re now the kid with the cool lunchbox back in primary school.
