Singapore is a nation of foodies.
I’m but one of them: A few weeks ago, I finally did the Rail Corridor trek with a friend — but this activity was only mooted because of the foodie spots in the area. Needless to say, the route became a “Food Corridor” instead, with #gains in other *ahem* areas.
But seriously, just ask your friends and many of them are always cafe-hopping or at the latest hot new resto. Plus, they have credit cards that offer dining perks, at least one food delivery app installed on their phones, plan their holidays around must-eat highlights, weave a meal into every meet-up, and of course, have some form of food-related subscription.
We’ll also go to any lengths to get our food, even if we can’t physically go out to eat or buy it ourselves. Remember the Circuit Breaker period, circa 2020? Food delivery was a life-saver! And for those of us who got served quarantine notices, fell ill with Covid-19 or simply couldn’t leave our desk due to a work discussion that overran into lunch, yup, food delivery to the rescue again!
To sweeten the deal, food delivery apps also offer discounted pick-up promos, grocery delivery… and one such app — foodpanda — also offers dine-in at restaurant deals! In addition, foodpanda also has its pandapro subscription plan that offers even more perks at a low, low rate from $3.99/month.
Aaaand, on top of this, foodpanda will be running their flagship event, pandapro week, where new and existing subscribers will get extra deals on top of the usual subscription perks from 23 to 29 May 2022.
Let’s first take a look at what foodpanda’s pandapro subscription offers.
Become a promo pro with pandapro
Aside from having that cheeky pink panda ambassador, Pau-Pau, who is such a cutie, pandapro offers great deals so you can become a promo pro, aka Lobang King/Queen. Imagine all the money saved on your favourite food and groceries, along with the delighted looks of your friends who also benefit by just hanging out with you!
Here’s a look at the perks that pandapro offers:
- Unlimited free delivery on your foodpanda orders from selected restaurants
- Extra 5% off all pick-up orders
- 20-35% off the full menu when you dine-in at selected restaurants
- 2 x 10% off monthly pandamart vouchers
This means pandapro subscribers get an all-rounded programme with food delivery, pick-up, groceries, and even dine-in. Did we mention it’s from just $3.99 a month? That’s a great rate, given the other foodie subscription plans available right now (we won’t name names, but #IYKYK).

Save over $300/month with pandapro
Word has it that with a pandapro subscription, you’re able to save over $300 a month thanks to all of the discounts and deals. While it might be different for everyone, here’s what my savings in a typical week might look like:

Of course, for those who rely on food delivery daily to tide them through a crazy week of work meetings and family duties, in addition to dining out during the weekends and going for a round of drinks with friends on Friday nights to destress, the savings could actually be much, much more. It’s actually quite mind-blowing how much can be saved.
