Dining out in Singapore

Singapore is often described as the melting pot of Asian cuisine. Singapore has a rich multicultural heritage and its residents are mostly made up of Chinese, Malay and Indian decent.

Its not surprising then to find a good mix of Chinese, Malay and Indian food in Singapore, there is also several uniquely Singaporean dishes that can trace some of their origins back to a cuisine of another country.

When in Singapore a must do is to eat at a hawker center. Hawker centers are like large outdoor food courts that were set up by the government to get the old hawker cart venders into one place and improve food quality standards. Singaporeans love to eat and it shows in the quality of the tasty food at a hawker centre. The food can be cheap and quick with some of the best food coming from the cheaper hawker centers in Chinatown or Little India over  the more expensive Orchid Rd centers.

The Singapore government is having a big drive to attract more and more tourists to the city, old waterfront port areas have now been transformed into stylish alfresco dining centers. Popular areas to check out include Boat Quay, Clark Quay, Far East Square and Club Street.

Local food we recommend to try in Singapore is Char kway teow, Laksa Hainanese chicken rice or perhaps even a fish head curry. One fruit that is popular with the locals may not be so tasty to tourist is called the Durian, This prickly looking fruit is considered a delicacy and smells so bad it is banned in many public places. Singaporeans love the durian so much that their version of the Sydney Opera House, Esplanade Theatres on the Bay, is shaped to resemble a durian.
