How the livingmenu system works
Accurate as of 2/10/2021:
- From the app (you can browse as guest also), you can view the menu options available for the week ahead. Do note that the stalls and menu options available differ everyday.
- You can order for the week ahead. For example: on 2/10/2021, you can order ahead for delivery up to 8/10/2021.
- There is a cut-off timing for you to cancel your order should you change your mind. Usually it is the night before the chosen delivery date.
- Delivery charges are based on the previous weeks’ usage level of the app. If more people in your area used the app, then the delivery charges will be lower or even free.
- There are membership tiers based on your spending on you can get delivery fee discounts up to 50%.
- Payment: For my first order, I made my payment via GooglePay.
My personal experience
Livingmenu’s concept is interesting because it allows me to enjoy food from all over the island without exorbitant delivery charges. It feels like a groupbuy for hawker food.
The app is pretty easy to understand and navigate and you can only create an account when you are ordering for the first time.
Credit cards are accepted and I used GooglePay. There was a payment processing fee of $0.50.
To operate efficiently I guess, there is only one option from each stall and no options to customise orders.
Remember to provide good directions (e.g. which lift lobby, direction to turn after exiting lift) when saving your address to help the delivery staff reach you faster.
I made my first order on 29/9/2021 for delivery on 30/9/2021. The delivery timing is between 12pm to 1pm and the food arrived at around 12:50pm. It was on time but I would have preferred if livingmenu can deliver earlier as my family was really hungry by that time.
The app constantly shows an update of the estimated delivery time based on the location of the delivery staff.
Delivery was contactless. The staff placed the order at my door and pressed the doorbell. The app also showed that the delivery was completed.
My order was delivered in a paper bag and without cutlery as part of livingmenu’s effort to Go Green!
My second order was on 20/10/2021. The food (Penang laksa, mee pok, avocado) arrived early this time around 11:15am which was great.
The first time we ordered, the food we received were pretty good but were already cold. We had to reheat them up in the microwave before consumption.
The second time round, the food (Penang laksa, mee pok) were still warm despite the delivery being from Golden Mile Food Centre to the north end of Singapore. Taste wise they were all good and I will repurchase in future.
Livingmenu was responsive and fast to my feedback via WhatsApp.
