The foodies have spoken and the votes have been counted! Deliveroo Singapore is proud to unveil its first annual Restaurant Awards winners, recognising some of the most beloved restaurants and grocers on the platform!
With 2021 being an immensely challenging year for the F&B industry, Deliveroo's first-ever Restaurant Awards honour restaurants for their perseverance in continuing to satisfy foodies' cravings amidst the pandemic. Chosen through a public voting process held on Deliveroo's Facebook page, the Awards spotlight the crème de la crème of Deliveroo's restaurant and grocery partners across nine distinct categories. The range of categories reflect local taste buds and popular food trends as seen in Deliveroo's annual 'Deliveroo 100 Report', including healthy eating such as customisable nutritious bowls, on-demand groceries and comfort foods such as fried chicken and burgers.
The public voting was open on 6 December 2021, and in four weeks, close to 6,000 local foodies voted and helped pick the winners in each award category. Winners include popular comfort food favourites such as Starbucks, Popeyes, Jollibee and Swensen's, taking home the awards for 'Go-to Restaurant for Guilty Pleasures', 'Best Value-For-Money Restaurant', 'Most-Loved Chain' and 'Best Halal Restaurant' respectively. Food Republic, famous for carrying a wide range of yummy local delights clinched the 'Best Hawker' award.
