Hello November! We’ve reached the second last month of the year, which means it’s time to start getting into the Christmas spirit and look forward to 2021! It’s been a challenging year for everyone, but I hope as much as possible, you’re hanging in there.
I’ve been sharing several food delivery posts this year, especially with pandemic circumstances bringing me to using more food delivery services, but since Singapore has been safely re-opening, this is my last food delivery post for the year. I was introduced to Shepherd’s Pie Singapore by BestinSingapore.com, who included them in their post on the “5 Best Pie Delivery in Singapore”. If you haven’t already heard of them, the Best in Singapore team helps to find the best things in Singapore in all kinds of categories and then shares them across their website and social media channels.
I read a lot of good reviews of Shepherd’s Pie Singapore online, so was looking forward to trying it for myself too, but regret to say that my experience was a disappointing one. Below is my review.
(Note: I’m not sure if something went wrong with my order, because the items I received seems very different from what I’ve seen in other reviews.)
To start off the review, here is a screenshot of my order with the prices of each item. I ordered two shepherd’s pies (the signature beef and the chicken), one lasagna and one mac and cheese. Yes, the prices are quite expensive for an online food delivery business, and unfortunately, the quality of the items I ordered did not match up to these prices.
I have to say though, the delivery service was great! My order was on time, everything was still neatly packed and intact in the bag and the delivery rider was friendly.
I really enjoy shepherd’s pies actually and have eaten plenty of them. The two pies I ordered were average, good enough but not great. The layer of mashed potato on top was on the thinner side, and both the beef and chicken were rather bland tasting. Average, but definitely not worth the price. Quite surprising considering that they specialise in them.
Now, for the lasagna and mac and cheese… The good news is that the lasagna tasted pretty good! The bad news: the portion of my lasagna (which is for 1 pax) was a 3 inch by 3 inchsquare. For $13.90, I really wasn’t expecting a portion that is more suitable for a child. The mac and cheese was the most disappointing of all. The portion was small (only filling about 2-3 cm of the foil container it came in), the dish was dry with hardly any cheese and the top macaroni pieces were crispy. Charging $16.90 for this, I’m shocked that this was allowed to be delivered.
I regret that this review has to end on a negative note, but I can’t recommend this place. Links are still provided below for reference.
