So you read our blog and went through our Chinese Muslim food businesses directory. While some of us would make every attempt to travel just for food, a handful of us would rather save ourselves the trouble of travelling so much, preferring to have the food delivered to us.

But why do some people choose to have food delivered to them? Well, it can be any or a combination of the following reasons.

  1. Can’t be bothered to travel.
  2. No transport.
  3. The place has limited access to public transport.
  4. Not familiar with the area.
  5. No time to travel.
