Whether you're too lazy for a late-night liquor run or get the munchies while crunching numbers at your desk, these food and drink delivery services have you covered.

Alcohol Delivery

With a wide range of commercial brews like Tiger, Erdinger and Stella Artois (as well as all manner of spirits like Yamazaki whisky, Grey Goose vodka, and Hendrick's gin) this delivery service promises to have your goods to your door within one hour of placing your order. As long as you get your order in between 10am and 2am, the party can continue.

Feedex

Not exactly a delivery service, per se, this company works more like a mediator for lunch rush queues. Simply place your food order at the beginning of the day and the Feedex team will have it ready for collection at their Telok Ayer headquarters. Much like picking up a takeout order, the local food-centric company works with famous hawkers like Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak at Adam Food Centre and Lee Hong Kee's famed roasted meats in Tiong Bahru.

Foodpanda

One of Singapore's more established food delivery services has recently expanded their repertoire of restaurants. Whittling down food options according to your location, there's a pretty dizzying array of restaurants to order from. Whether it's Japanese or Italian you're craving, they've even put down how long it will take for the food to reach you, as well as delivery minimum spending.

Grain

The best option for health-conscious and calorie-counting eaters, this delivery service not only promises to bring you a box of delicious healthy food, they also promise to deliver it within 15 minutes of ordering. The daily-changing menus are dreamed up by legit chefs (think those who have worked in the likes of Mugaritz and Jaan) in a central kitchen with items like Assam chicken black rice with goji berry cabbage for 540 calories and seared flank steak salad with blue cheese for 461 calories. They've also got fresh juice mixes like capsicum, watermelon and mint. The only downside? They only deliver in the Marina Bay area for now.

Liquor Bar

This one's worth mentioning because of their huge range of artisanal spirits, on top of their commercial stuff. You'll find pages of tequilas like 1800 Anejo, vodkas like Crystal Head and single malts from Bowmore. Most deliveries will come within the same day, if not two hours after ordering. One of the only drawbacks is that they stop delivering at 7pm, which is pretty early compared to other delivery services.

Lunchbox

Catered for the CBD lunch crowd, this delivery service works with CBD-area restaurants, central kitchens and catering groups to have your lunch in 45 minutes. Despite the fact that they only work with a handful of restaurants like Sawasdee Thai Food and Angel's Bistro, they've also got dibs on Chinatown Food Street, which has a bunch of local food stalls. Plus, you can order food from multiple places to create a mix-and-match lunch. One of the downsides to this service is that they only deliver three times a day between 11.45am and 2pm, so you better get your orders in at around 11am.

Mabuk Monkey

Another drink delivery service, Mabuk Monkey's mantra lies in islandwide delivery within one hour until midnight. Although their spirits list isn't as extensive, they've got the basics covered with stuff like Absolut, Grey Goose, Jose Cuervo tequila and Bombay Sapphire gin. Plus, you can throw in mixers, ice, cups and wines to get the party going. The best part is that they carry a big range of craft brews from local favorite, Brewerkz, to Brew Dog and St. Bernardus. Oh and did we mention their white wines and beers come pre-chilled?

NomNom

One for those with a sweet tooth, this dessert subscription delivery service rounds up a box of treats that will be delivered monthly. Each time, there's a curated selection of cupcakes, cakes, tarts, macaroons and even teas from shops like Carpenter & Cook, Ciel Patisserie, Kreme Couture, The Audacious Cakery and more. Packaged neatly in a brown box, the service comes in one-, three-, and six-month subscriptions.

Ring to Drink

Another liquor delivery service that promises to deliver within an hour of ordering, Ring to Drink have got thoughtful bundles of booze with mixers and snacks for those expected hunger pangs. Aside from hard spirits like vodka, gin, whisky and tequila, they also stock a range of wines, champagnes and beers. We're not saying it's high-shelf stuff, but it's certainly convenient to have a service deliver until midnight. Plus, if you email them in advance, they may be able to source that bottle of vintage you were looking for.

Room Service

Another recognized online food delivery company, they've got a slew of restaurants you can order from, as well. Whether you crave commercial stuff like Nando's, California Pizza Kitchen, Chili's or Trattoria Italian, they've got you covered. They also deliver from places like popular Korean fried chicken Kko Kko Na Ra, Zsofi Tapas Bar and even the Ribs and Wine Company (RAWC). Simply key in your location and filter choices according to cuisine or restaurant. They deliver between 11am and 11pm daily.
