TIAN WEI SIGNATURE

New mums who are apprehensive about traditional confinement food overload may like Tian Wei’s balanced offerings (pictured opposite). Its 28-day package starts with a full week of time-honoured classics (pig’s trotters, stir-fried liver with beehoon and the like).

Subsequently, there’s a handful of fusion meals each week to break up the monotony, such as coq au vin, toasted oats millet rice, and papaya-and-white fungus dessert. It works with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) physicians to ensure you’re getting all the nutrition you need.

A traditional meal consists of a meat or fish dish, a vegetable dish, rice – this changes daily and includes pumpkin rice, five-grain rice and fried rice – soup, and red date tea.

A fusion meal, on the other hand, comprises a meat fish dish, rice, dessert, and red date tea. There’s no MSG or beef. Two Sheng Hua tonics – believed to be beneficial for the immediate postpartum period because of its warming properties – are provided for the first two dinners. View the menu online.

Tian Wei is fairly accommodating when it comes to special dietary requests. Depending on the ingredients requested to omit, it might either substitute with another suitable ingredient, or change to a different dish.

Meals come in microwaveable bentoboxes, packed in thermal bags. They’re delivered daily, except for major public holidays. Lunch and dinner meals are different, and delivered separately.

HOW MUCH $1,688 for 28-day lunch-and-dinner package. A seven-day, once-daily package is also available. Get an early bird discount when you order one month before your estimated delivery date.

Book a $30 trial package and sample the day’s regular menu, or choose a $40 package, which comprises three fusion and three traditional dishes, as well as a soup, dessert, and red date tea.

Sizzling Dyyana is one of the rare confinement meal delivery services that’s halal. Dyyana Awang runs a one-woman show from home, so slots are limited.

She announces the day’s menu – which follows whatever’s fresh at the market that day – via Whatsapp every morning with detailed information on the nutritional benefits of the ingredients featured.
