Additional reporting by Dudi Aureus.
While Singapore has entered Phase 3 (Heightened Alert), we have to wait one more week before we can dine out again. In the meantime, make the most out of staying home with our picks of international delicacies you can enjoy at home. Taste the flavours of Europe with Kingdom Of Belgians or take a trip along the Mediterranean coasts with sumptuous offerings from The Lounge at Riviera. Make a pitstop in London, home of the famous Burger & Lobster which now boasts a number of outlets across the globe, and get served the popular lobster roll.
For something a little more casual, Chix Hot Chicken's Nashville style fried chicken is bound to please spice heads and so does Famous Treasure with its mala-based offerings; or tread new waters with quintessential Japanese fare from Neon Pigeon's latest virtual concept, Coop.
1/6 The Lounge at Riviera
A sumptuous Mediterranean feast at home is possible, thanks to executive chef Rémy Carmignani and executive pastry chef Nicolas Vergnole's signature dishes for delivery. Get started on the grass-fed lamb croquetas, which are essentially little balls of goodies made with slow-braised lamb shoulder coated with bread crumbs and deep-fried to perfection. Keep the appetite going with the star dish of the meal—Tajines Makfoul. Carmignani's take on the Moroccan slow-cooked grass-fed lamb shank tajine is jazzed up with a lamb jus-coated barley with almonds as well as freshly-baked Moroccan Batbout bread to mop up all the sauce. Dessert gives you plenty of options but we'll always go for the slightly sweet and tangy lemon tart. Order here.

2/6 Burger & Lobster
Surprise the family with a delicious spread courtesy of Burger & Lobster. Naturally, it won't be complete without the signature Original Lobster Roll, comprising the chilled chunks of steamed lobster meat accented with lemon mayo and stuffed in a buttery and toasted brioche roll. Served with fries and salad. The burgers deserve your attention, too, especially the smoked bbq burger consisting of a flavoursome Nebraskan beef patty swiped with sweet bbq sauce and stacked with smoked cheddar, maple bacon, bbq mayo, kale, tomato and balsamic onion. These are sandwiched between fluffy burger buns that don't turn into mush even after soaking in the juices. Order here.

3/6 Famous Treasure
Another family-friendly restaurant offering its takeaway and delivery menus is Famous Treasure. Choose from its extensive menu spanning Teochew, Hokkien and Cantonese and Singaporean cuisines, then dig into hot favourites including deep-fried prawn paste chicken, Sichuan mala chicken and Singapore chilli crab. Make it a hefty meal with carbs, and you'll do well ordering the yang chow fried rice or the signature char kway teow. Order here.

4/6 Chix Hot Chicken
The very first of its kind, Chix Hot Chicken's Nasville style hot fried chicken will set your tongue ablaze with flavour from their proprietary southern dry rub. But beyond the fried chook are their crowd favourite hot chicken sandwiches like the Soul Slider, featuring a heaping fried boneless chicken thigh and Chix pink sauce, and the Wakie Brekkie Wrap of crispy chicken tenders, scrambled eggs and tater tots. Do save some space for their delectable finger food as well, including the fully loaded Dirty Taters and addictively crisp Cracklin' Chicken Skins. Order here.

5/6 Kingdom of Belgians
Kingdom Of Belgian's takeaway menu is stocked full of hearty 'Meal In A Box' dishes and fuss-free ready to eat frozen options for you to enjoy the flavours of Belgium from the comfort of home. The Meal In A Box range varies from traditional boulet liegeois (meatballs in apple and onion gravy) and beef carbonnade, to satisfying deep-fried pork burgers. Besides that, stock the fridge up with marinated meats like the lemon rosemary pork collar or frozen portions of sausage & stoemp (Belgian dish of mashed potatoes and other root vegetables) and beef lasagne; and don't forget to treat yourself to a sweet morsel of liege waffles.

Neon Pigeon's latest concept, Coop, is a virtual Japanese takeout that offers fuss-free fare for diners with a taste for the Land of the Rising Sun. Donburis and ramen aside, Coop's sando-burgers are a humble intersection of sando and burger, featuring pillowy potato buns and crisp, fried fillings. Have a classic pork katsu, or choose from alternatives like New Zealand cod, tofu and chicken, the latter of which take a page from gochujang drenched Korean fried chicken.
Other standouts are found in the ramen selection, notably the sake smoked pork ramen bathed in an umami-packed paitan broth prepared overnight with duck consommé, niboshi (dried sardines), dried mushrooms, and lemon ginger tare. It's simmered for 72 hours to further enrich the taste before the addition of ramen noodles, napa cabbage, mushrooms, ramen egg and spring onions. Have it with pork and langoustine gyozas for maximum enjoyment.
