Tingkat dinner delivery from Hong Choo Catering

After Kim’s Kitchen trial tingkat (posts 1,2,3), we decided to try another caterer. Hong Choo Catering was recommended by sis-in-law, who said that (compared to Kim’s Kitchen) the food is more child-friendly for her 7-year-old daughter.

We’re now into our 3rd month of tingkat dinner with Hong Choo. Of course, it still can’t beat our own home cooking. But compared to Kim’s Kitchen, we prefer Hong Choo’s cooking.

The food tastes light but flavorful, and isn’t greasy. We don’t feel thirsty after eating, which is a sign of no MSG or very little use of it. The dishes are quite similar to our family’s recipes too.

Here are 8 meals, taken randomly over the past 3 weeks or so.

We took the 4 dishes for 3 people option. Costs S$250 nett for 20 days. Add $10 for plastic microwaveable boxes instead of metal containers.

Once in a while, there’s a meal or two that’s not so much to our liking. But overall, we are quite happy to stay with Hong Choo for now. Sometimes, the chicken or pork dishes tend to be a little tough or stringy.

Unlike Kim’s Kitchen which is operated like a large corporation, Hong Choo seems to be smaller in scale. They don’t even have a website. And they also don’t have a pre-planned menu, so you won’t know in advance what you’ll be getting.

I asked them about this before. They replied that it can be difficult to stick to a pre-planned menu as some ingredients may not be available. They prefer to cook using whatever fresh ingredients they can get on the day. As a home cook, I also encounter the same situation, so I can accept this arrangement.

On the whole, this is one of the better tingkat caterers we’ve experienced. Portions are sufficient. Their pricing is very reasonable too. They also seem to provide tingkat lunch.
