Whether it’s the Singaporean-peppery version or the Malaysia-herbal version, it is a popular dish amongst many. Being primarily soup-based, some might wonder why it’s even considered to be one of the best foods to get delivered.

5. Salad/Poké Bowls
For the more health-conscious folks out there, salads and Poké bowls are one of the best foods to get delivered for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the dish is served cold to begin with. Secondly, as long as the dish is stored in well-insulated bags while being delivered to you, the risk of getting food poisoning is low. If you really want to be on the safe side, we will recommend steering clear from seafood options, and asking for the sauce to be packed on the side.
