I am a new mommy who has decided to order Chilli Padi’s confinement meals after a trial. They offer very yummy dishes like salmon tofu cake and buckwheat noodles with egg and long bean. I am glad that they do not always stick to the old school confinement dishes. The bowls of soups are very rich and they always ensure that the meals are well balanced in terms of nutrients.

First time Ordering the 28Days confinement meal from Chilli Padi and comparing with my first confinement meal from another company I preferred the meal from Chilli Padi and the food is really delicious. Especially love their Salmon and Pig’s trotters with Vinegar. Highly recommended to order from them!
