Lifetime has teamed up with Grain in Singapore to also curate a special dinner menu for the premiere of #MasterChefAsia. Each order also includes 4 different meals!


Unadon with Winter Vegetables Nimono

Japanese lovers, take notice: your unadon is now available with your nimono (those simmered vegetables that we all love munching on). You know what they say about two is better than one - it all comes out in this dish. Stewed in bonito and pork broth for 6 hours, the vegetables come out tender, giving you all the flavors you’ve come to love.

Grilled Artichoke Baked Frittata

Artichoke lovers and non-lovers alike are sure to dig into this simple (but tedious) artichoke egg frittata - sans meat. Artichoke is char-grilled, then marinated with olive oil, oregano, vinegar and salty love for 5 days and 5 nights. Throw this resulting flavorful delight with eggs baked with love and behold, grilled artichoke, baked frittata.

Bibimbap with Grilled Red Chicken

Bibimbap has always been a traditionally healthy Korean dish. And... we have just upped the mark. With brown and black rice, our bibimbap 2.0 is a mix of complex carbs, pumping slow energy to fuel your day. Topped with grilled red chicken and vegetables, take a trip to Korea and be back within the hour. We promise you’ll still have energy left over. Enjoy mildly warm or at room temperature.

Tarragon Yoghurt Chicken on Spring Vegetables Salad
This meal hugs the palate with great intensity. The chicken pairs great with yoghurt and tarragon, unfolding a sensual aftertaste and a smart sweetness, which balances its aroma perfectly. This is the perfect way to pick yourself up after a hectic work week.
Ordering your On-Demand dinner in Singapore is also as easy as requesting your ride: Open your Uber app on Sept 3rd, between 7:00pm and 8:30pm. Toggle over the MasterChef Asia option that appears in the app, and request your meal.

  1. Not for me over here... Tsk! Tsk! Sobsssss!!!!!!

    1. Suituapui: hopefully Uber will reach you in Sarawak in the not too distant future! :)

  2. I can foresee this promo will be crazy tomorrow... so I'll just hedge my bets and eat dinner beforehand (by 7.30 p.m. I would've already be done with dinner)

    1. SC: i'm gonna try to turn on the app and cross my fingers that i'll be fortunate enough to have a driver with all these goodies roaming around near me :D

  3. Replies
    1. Linda: food comes to you ;)

  4. I'm gonna try this tonight, it's gonna be awesome!

    1. Audrey: i think the demand will exceed the supply!

  5. My mouth started watering just from reading all these wonderful meals. Though I was not able to watch, I think that this is a very interesting concept and hope to be seeing much more of it in the future. Until then I will just have to do a little research on these recipes and try and make them at home for myself.
