Sturia Oscietra Caviar from Classic Deli

Being stuck at home does not mean that you have to contend with run-of-the-mill groceries.

Stanbroke Wagyu Striploin from Classic Deli

Classic Deli

Classic Fine Foods, one of Singapore’s leading distributors of fine and gourmet food products, has launched its first online grocery store that caters directly to consumers. The new Classic Deli will be stocking many of the same products that they supply to Singapore’s finest restaurants, including a wide selection of meats, fresh produce, charcuterie, caviar, and truffle-based condiments.

Meat lovers will certainly be drawn in by their selection of beef and lamb. Think Wagyu marble score 6-7 striploins ($374.90/3.3kg) and Black Angus cuts for the former, and Grain Fed Western Australian Lamb and Pasture Fed New Zealand Lamb for the latter. Its range of frozen seafood is equally impressive, boasting premium ingredients like Spanish Carabinero ($87.90/1kg) and Langoustines ($43/800g). Besides the meat and seafood, Classic Deli is also well stocked with premium larder essentials like Abruzzo dried pasta, Italian and Spanish olive oils, Puglian burrata, and balsamic vinegars from Emilia-Romagna.

Consumers get to enjoy 10% off their first order using code 10DELI. Shoppers who spend above $150 can enjoy free island-wide delivery. Simply place your order before 4.30pm and items will be delivered the next day (except Sunday).
