HungryGoWhere, the Singapore-centric food portal, today launched HungryDeals, a discount site for culinary indulgence. HungryDeals will feature new discounts from restaurants and bars in Singapore on a daily basis which will be activated if the deals are purchased by minimum number of customers.
HungryDeals is one more addition to the burgeoning list of Groupon-esque sites in Singapore. HungryDeals however has an advantage due to access to the huge user base in its main site, HungryGoWhere. In an interview with SGEntrepreneurs, HungryGoWhere co-founder, Dennis Goh mentions that, “While group buying sites are great by themselves, there is a need to link them up to an ecosystem.”
Founded in 2006 by Dennis Goh, Wong Hoong An and Yung Yih, HungryGoWhere is a one stop food and beverages portal focused on Singapore, Kuala Lampur and Hong Kong market. It features restaurant reviews from users, provides food delivery services from restaurants and a search engine to find nearby restaurants or bars. Last year, HungryGoWhere announced a partnership with Microsoft to have its reviews featured on MSN Singapore. It recently expanded its hungry network to incude HungryDelivery and Hungry BBQ.
