Eating In or Eating Out

Eating In or Eating Out

These surveys were done during the reopening phase and not during Singapore’s heightened alert periods. Remember to follow the guidelines when deciding to dine outdoors.

Having a good meal outdoors is starting to become the norm again, but we wanted to know how the current situation affected our panelist’s decisions to dine out.

There’s still a good amount of panelists who dine outdoors at least 2-3 days a week!

In the collected comments, panelists do mention the current situation as a deterrent to eating out. But that they felt comfortable enough to dine out with the SOPs in place.

Additionally, other popular reasons for dining out included:

  1. Singapore is a food hub.
  2. Singaporeans love eating.

Cost of Eating Out

A further question we posed to our panelists was how much they spend per meal per day.

Daily expenditure per day for dining out

It appears that most of our panelists dine outdoors for the convenience more than having a fancy meal. With only about 11% spending more than $20 per day.
