Singapore is a foodie heaven – you’ll never run out of great places to eat and drink. Because of the city state’s cultural diversity there’s a vast range of cuisines on offer from Western to Chinese, Indian, Malay, Indonesian and Nyonya cooking, a blend of Chinese and Malay cooking styles developed by the Peranakan community. Then there are fusions of everything as well!

Not only that but the price range is extreme – you can eat Michelin-star food at a hawker centre for $S5 or at a fine dining restaurant for hundreds. This is “the” place to satiate your taste buds.

There’s also a huge number of places to eat and drink: restaurants, cafes, hawker centres and street food stalls. Quite a few hawker stalls even have Michelin stars they’re so good and – with an average meal cost of less than $S5 a serve – you have every foodie’s heaven.

And you’re going to have an appetite! With so many things to see and do, you’ll need to fuel up. Check out my comprehensive hotel list, area guides and itineraries if you’d like to design your holiday around your tastebuds – I do!
