Whether you are looking for a Beach Club, Lounge/Bar, Upscale Restaurant, Street Food, Fresh Seafood, or Quality In-Room dining, Singapore cuisine will not disappoint.

Singapore can be daunting to search at random. I have some guidance to help save time, find what you crave, and introduce you to new cuisines & cultures that abound here.

First, here are some Local tips to apply during your vacation.

Getting around by metro or bus is easy.  Cab drivers are honest and speak good English. Public attractions get very busy, so arrive before they open.  Tap water is safe to drink.

Remember your water bottle. Singapore is a modern city with free WIFI everywhere. Explore the restaurants in Singapore, eat all the food, drink all the coffee or tea, and leave no plate unturned.

Many of the districts in Singapore have consolidated ethnicity, leading to a focus on the meal preferences of the majority of residents.  Here are some recommendations to help you hit hot points of various cuisines;

  • Find the top shopping, entertainment, and restaurants in Singapore on Orchard Road. You will not be disappointed with the culinary artistry at Eden Restaurant; they will set the mark high.
  • The district of Tiong Bahru offers a variety of flavours in a trendy area.  You will find a mix of new and old eateries, hawker fare (street food), and modern cafes.  Many of the younger generation flock here for food and fun.
  • The area that is home to Middle Eastern and Malay seasoning is called Kampong Glam. There are 19th-century shops that give a unique feel of traveling back in time while offering casual dining and stunning landmarks.
  • The district Little India is focused on the lively tastes and vibrant colors of Indian cuisine. Understated canteens, gold shops, fresh flowers, and quality silks await you here. Come and taste Indian tradition while surrounded by scores of attractions.
  • Chinatown is worth exploring for Dim Sum or other Chinese classics.  In a small labyrinth of streets lined with antique, craft, clothes & souvenir boutiques, discover Club Street for fashionable Wine Bars or Complex Market.
  • Don’t miss the heritage-laden district of Katong, which is well known for its Peranakan cuisine and culture. Try some Laksa Noodles around the Eurasian Heritage Centre, then ride the beautiful cycle paths.
  • For the freshest seafood restaurants in Singapore, head to the East Coast. Get your reservations as they are popular. Take a look into East Coast Seafood Center or Jumbo Seafood, sit outside near the water, and enjoy the freshest options with bold tastes.
  • Lau Pa Sat is Singapore’s best food court, and it is also known as Hawker Center. It is busy but seats 2500 and is within walking distance from Chinatown. Local cab drivers may not recommend it due to the traffic. Do not be dissuaded.

These recommendations are the tip of the iceberg of Singaporean cuisine, and I hope they can help you. Arrive hungry.  Thanks for reading.
