Who said dining at home can't be fun? These virtual restaurants in Singapore are changing up the food delivery scene with their cool concepts.
Singapore’s food scene is nothing short of vibrant. From chic cafes and top-notch restaurants to amazing buffet spots and awesome hawker centres, you’ll never run out of options when hunger beckons. But if you’re working from home or feeling lazy to step out, virtual restaurants in Singapore are the next best thing. Unlike regular eateries that offer food delivery services, these places operate out of cloud kitchens and only exist exclusively online. So if you’re looking for a unique dining experience, it’s just one click away!

Conceptualised by Les Amis Group, Kitch is its first cloud kitchen to unite five dining brands under one roof. Have your fill of Asian dishes like nasi lemak and laksa from Lemak Boys, slurp-worthy ramen noodles from its partnership with One Prawn Noodles, or porridge varieties from Mui Kee Congee. Also, look forward to two new brands: Peperoni Pronto and Yujin Bowls. The former is an offshoot of Peperoni Pizzeria where you can have pizzas in XXL portions. Meanwhile, the latter is a spinoff from Yujin Izakaya, specialising in hearty Japanese salmon bowls like aburi mentaiko.
