[Review] OurPasar Essentials: An Online Halal Grocer that Meets your Daily Needs

January 10, 2021 0 Comments A+ a-

In the past year, many of us have turned to online retailers and service providers to avoid crowds due to the pandemic. In one way or another, we have/ have heard of friends who have become e-experts overnight - from buying online groceries to attending classes via ZOOM.

OurPasar - An Online Halal Grocer
I was recently introduced to OurPasar, an online halal grocer which sells a wide range of produce such as meat, poultry, seafood and vegetables.

I tried their service to deliver 1 kg of Frozen Sirloin to my home. Here's my review:

1) Careful Packaging
My item was delivered in a clean new styrofoam box to retain temperatures and the raw beef was fully submerged in ice. The beef was still kept frozen (and not half thawed), so thumbs up for that!

2) Packed Fresh
The beef I purchased was frozen so I had expected it to have been at least a few months old. Surprisingly, my sirloin was just packed the day before.

OurPasar's goal is to keep its produce fresh by shortening the gap between food producers to end consumers. It tightly controls the supply chain and keeps processes efficient to ensure sustained quality and freshness of the produce from farm to table.

3) Reasonable Price
OurPasar's price is comparable to supermarkets and wet markets. For instance, their vegetables are less than S$2.50 and the sirloin I had was is at S$15/kg (U.P. S$17).

Do Check Them Out!
If you would like to try an alternative local grocer or have halal needs, do check out OurPasar.

They have regular promotions and special discounts. The current ones include:
  • The sirloin I had is now at $15/kg (sliced into 5 convenient slices for steaks).

And so if you are curious, I used my sirloin to cook a dish of Stir-Fried Beef Cubes with Mixed Vegetables. How will you cook yours? :)
