Cloud kitchen concepts are here to stay

The current climate has changed the landscape of dining dramatically, as many traditional F&B businesses go digital to remain viable. And although virtual restaurants have been around for some years now, they have definitely grown more popular over the course of the last few months. To try exclusive items available only through delivery directly to your doorstep, check out any of the four cloud kitchen concepts listed below. From Italian and Mediterranean eats to mouth-watering Japanese donburis, trust these dark kitchens to keep you satisfied in the comfort of your own home.

More than just a cloud kitchen, this all-in-one Italian-Mediterranean restaurant, grocer and bar by Beppe De Vito will now bring you delicious mains like Beef Lasagna, Iberico Pork Collar and Chicken Cacciatore alongside cocktail kits and pre-prepped Italian staples like fresh herbs, homemade pasta and sauces. So never leave home again to hunt for gourmet Italian eats or groceries and instead have them all delivered to your home with Grammi.


Launched by homegrown restaurant group New Ubin, UbinEats is another nascent dark kitchen dedicated to local, ready-to-eat meals for solo diners.

If you’ve been a long time patron of Greek restaurant Blu Kouzina at Dempsey Hill, then Vios should be your go-to for quick yet quality Mediterranean meals at home. A digital restaurant arm only operating through Deliveroo’s cloud kitchen concept, Vios provides wholesome and nutritious grain bowls directly to your doorstep.
