Restaurants are responding to the latest COVID-19 restrictions – no dine-in whatsoever – with attractive delivery offers. From hotpot to Michelin-starred fine dining, there’s something for everyone. Eat well in lockdown while supporting the hard-hit F&B industry!
Black Sheep Restaurants
We’re already fans of Black Sheep’s own delivery app, GO, providing reliable and hygienic delivery services for their restaurants. But now you can also sign up for the Black Sheep Supper Cult ($1,400/5 nights) to get your weeknight dinners sorted. It’s an easy, five-day delivery meal plan with a choice of a Naughty or Nice experience – for instance, you could be getting beef massaman curry and crispy chicken wings from Soul Food Thai on Tuesday and spicy rigatoni vodka and Mario’s meatballs from Carbone on Friday. The price is inclusive of delivery from Kennedy Town to Tai Hang and even up to the Peak.
Or pay it forward! Consider supporting Black Sheep Restaurats by purchasing gift cards and redeeming them when dining in at a later time.

Or go simple and opt for the Cornerstone Sandwich Set ($200) to get the bavette, ciabatta and two cans of Peroni. Order online.

Chef Osborn himself will choose the winning sandwich by the end of August, and it will be featured on the menu at Cornerstone throughout September. The winner will also get a sit-down with Cornerstone’s head chef, Neal Ledesma, as well as complimentary brunch for two.
