Best Apps for Eats in 2019

Who doesn’t love to eat out? From treating yourself at some fancy restaurant, to saving yourself the hassle of cooking at home, there are plenty of great reasons to eat out. But if eating out in 2018 broke the bank for you, fret not, because we have the apps that’ll keep you going back to your favourite restaurants without having to worry about eating grass for the next few meals.

Eatigo

If you aren’t already using Eatigo, well you should start! With discounts of up to 50%, you can get meals at great restaurants all over the island at a bargain. The idea is simple, pick a date and time, and based off the time you’ve chosen, you can qualify for discounts of up to 50%. The app instantly helps you to make a reservation so all you have to do is to show up on time.

The discounts change according to the day, and the time of day as well, so whether you’re planning ahead, or looking for a cheap bite in the vicinity, it’s always easy to make a decision. The less popular the date and time, like a late lunch or early dinner on a weekday, the greater the discount offered. This is perfect for those of you with flexible lunch breaks or prefer having late dinners. It also works on the weekends, so if you want to sleep in and get out for brunch, this is definitely the app for you. 

Entertainer

1-for-1. On. Everything.

This is the app for those of you who love going out on fancy dates. With 1-for-1 deals on all offers, you’ll find yourself saving a bomb on those special occasions, whether celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or whatever occasion, there are all kinds of restaurants on offer in the app. With the likes of gustatory giants under its repertoire, impress your date by bringing them to Art, helmed by Michelin-star Chef Beppe De Vito, the meals are as much a treat for your taste buds as it is for your eyes, and it’ll be light on the wallet too.

Plus, the app goes beyond just the high class dining, save on all sorts of meals with 1-for-1 offers rom Yoshinoya, Bangkok Jam, Harry’s and more. You can even find offers on activities like Wave House, and BOUNCE Singapore.

The offers are on a paid purchase, for $95, enjoy a years’ worth of deals (which is certainly less than the savings if you make the most of the promotions available. Just a trip to Fat Cow and you’d already have broken even with the app). But if you aren’t convinced just yet, there’s a 14 day trial which you can make use of to get a taste of 1-for-1 goodness. Plus, there’s also the option of sending the offers to friends and family members to make the app even more worthwhile.
