Skip the
queue,
collect
your food

The Dabao App is a mobile app on iOS and Android that allows you to browse, order, and pay for dabao-ed food: so you can just collect your food and go.

About us

Less waiting,

more eating

We created the Dabao app out of the frustrations with queueing we share. We are an ordering & payment platform for you to browse, order and pay for your favourite food and drinks. Pre-order ahead to skip the queue, and just collect it when it's ready!

Let's work
together

Are you running a store that sells food or beverages in Singapore? We would love to work with you.
