How would you like $25,000 and a chance to start your own restaurant? Deliveroo is giving five aspiring entrepreneurs – or should I say, foodiepreneurs – the chance to get their dream business going at the Deliveroo Food Market at Mediapolis, all part of a drive to nurture the next generation of game-changers in the food industry.
From an initial online proposal, to a two-hour pop up kitchen at the Incubaker, these five talented candidates will be battling it out on Deliveroo Pitch Day on 16 October!
1. my Life Giving Food
My Life Giving Food is one story that inspires, as its founder, Candice Chiew is a cancer survivor who advocates good nutritious food. Her gluten free wrap, which debuted at the Deliveroo Pop-up Kitchen, features fresh vegetables and a healthy portion of tempeh, a traditional fermented soybean with Indonesian origins.
Fancy chowing down on your favourite local dishes as a fancy schmancy appetiser? Wearelittlebites by Kristoffer Tian not only combines traditional comfort food with innovative cooking methods and presentation, but also advocates sustainable dining! The budding business also has a private dining gig going on, which you can check out on their Instagram.
3. Teratak Cinta Rasa
Helmed by Deliveroo rider Muhammad Shahari Bin Ahmad, Teratak Cinta Rasa elevates the beloved Roti John by adding a dollop of lava salted egg for that extra umami kick.
4. Healthy Fares
Healthy Fares by fitness enthusiast, Siva Thangaveloo will definitely be a crowd favourite. The mini brown rice bowl with vegetables and chicken meat balls was delicious, and surprisingly filling for its size!
5. Wang Yuan Fish Soup
Programmer Kenneth Pek has engineered his way to a perfect fish soup recipe. Think umami fish soup paired with fresh fish slices, cruciferous vegetables, organic chicken, and black pork cooked to order.
It’ll definitely be exciting to watch these five presenters pitch their business plans and key dishes at the final stage on 16 October 2019. If you wanna catch them live, be sure to register on the event page!
