Recreate the restaurant experience with your own personal touch
It’s been over 20 days since the circuit breaker started and chances are, you’re missing dining out in our F&B scene. Thankfully, local restaurants and bars have stepped up by offering takeaways and deliveries. Another initiative we love is the DIY meal kits. These come with detailed instructions, all the fresh ingredients you need, measured to the exact amount.
Open Farm Community
Open Farm Community has launched OFC Provisions, a grocery that supports local farms which also aims at reducing local waste. It now has DIY pasta kits for you to assemble yourself at home. These meal kits serve two people and come in two options: Carbon Neutral Beef Bolognese and Kin Yan Organic Mushroom Tortellini. While you shop for your kits, order fresh vegetables to make a salad. The Garden Herbs Box is made up of fresh organic herbs from the restaurant’s garden, while the Community Supported Agriculture comprises of 3kg worth of mixed local and ‘ugly’ but perfectly edible vegetables that change based on availability. OFC Provisions is available for purchase at Tiong Bahru Bakery Eng Hoon, from 8am to 5pm and Tiong Bahru Bakery Safari from 11am to 9pm.
