1. Dessert on a pizza

This dish will definitely be the talk of the town: Pezzo is offering a new pizza in collaboration with GrabFood that’s bound to get your guests oohing and aahing over these heavenly slices. It features a scoop of coconut ice cream in the middle with generous amounts of grated coconut and gula melaka glaze; it’s truly a treat to beat those sunny days, and a must-have as part of your Raya goodies! 😋

Here’s a special promotion for all you ondeh-ondeh lovers.

2. Double the sweetness with ondeh ondeh AND ice cream together

One of the reasons why we have to put ondeh ondeh again on the list is because it’s just so versatile! It’s the perfect dessert for all types of foodies; be it the adventurous ones who love to try an ondeh ondeh pizza or those who prefer a different twist, something like GrabFood x Swensen's Ondeh Ondeh ice cream!😍 The ice cream features a creamy pandan and milk outer layer, and an oozy gula melaka, brown sugar, and coconut centre—just like the kueh 🤤

Grab is partnering up exclusively with Swensen’s to make your treat even sweeter with their special gift: a free, limited edition Swensen’s x GrabFood tote bag! Purchase 3 pints of Swensen’s ice cream (include at least 1 pint of Ondeh Ondeh ice cream in your cart), and the tote bag is all yours! It’s going to come in handy for those last-minute Raya preps, especially when you’re out stocking up for your Raya hauls. Green really is a good colour this year, isn’t it? 😉
