Tian Wei Signature Confinement Food Singapore Review
Here i documented my 28-days confinement meal journey with Tian Wei Signature. As you can see from the photograph, everyday they have different type of meal. It was such a joy everytime i am having their confinement meals, because so many varieties and all tasted good. I could see that Tian Wei crafting each menu carefully to make sure the meals are nutricious and wholesome.
Each meal comes with a red date tea, a staple in traditional Chinese confinement believed to offer natural benefits to postpartum mothers. Infused with carefully selected ingredients and herbs, Tian Wei Signature serves an appetising menu while still retaining rich traditional tastes of confinement favourites with confinement food recipes Singapore.
Tian Wei Signature confinement meals are improvised and concocted to especially help in the wellbeing of newborn mothers, like the Slice Fish with Egg in Ginger Broth believed to promote better blood circulation. My favourite confinement food is their signature Braised Pork Trotter in Black Vinegar and all the herbal soups. They also has a range of dishes with the beneficial ingredients such as the Fenugreek Green Papaya Fish Soup that can aid in increasing breast-milk production. Throughout my confinement i proudly said that i was exclusively breastfeeding baby Kai and thank God that i managed to have sufficient supply, the confinement foods help me a lot too!
Best thing, the food is delivered right on my door step daily without fail. I really appreciate that every day my meal delivered were still warm when arrived and they properly packed on microwave friendly containers.
And one thing i was so amazed that they also treat every customer special, as they have customer service officers who always keep in touch with me. They making sure everything are okay and asking about my feedback about the foods or i can even make some requests to alter my foods preference. Like for example for first few weeks when baby Kai had jaundice i can request the menu to have less herbs until his jaundice level stabilize.
Throughout confinement journey with Tian Wei Signature, i never have to worry on my nutrition and post-partum recovery.
If you do not have a confinement nanny or are not assured that regular confinement meals can be prepared daily by yourself or a family member (like my case), consider engaging in a confinement meal catering service with delivery in Singapore is such a good decision. Colloquially referred to as “tingkat” confinement food, such services ensure you can have a peace of mind that every meal will be prepared for your recovery.
