Hokkienmee, egg noodles stir-fried with pork and prawns, OrhLua which is an oyster omelet and fish head curry are a few unimaginably delicious foods prepared by the Hawker centers around Singapore.If you want to drift down the streets and watch the magic come alive, this would be the best option. Hawker centers mushroomed in Singapore during the 1950s. Today, street food is plentiful in the lion city. When traversing the streets of Singapore look out for Lau Pa sat, Maxwell Food Centre and Old Airport Road which create unique food fantasies.

Intermarriage certainly created marvels in the kitchen. Descendants of Chinese traders who took Malay wives fused Chinese dishes with uniquely Malay tastes. Their cuisine is called Peranakan cuisine and is popular among modern Singaporeans and hungry travellers. Taste this unique blend in a dish called Laksa. It is best prepared at 328 KatongLaksa. Make it a point to visit the restaurant on your next visit to Singapore.

Making it to San Pellegrino’s annual 2014 list of world’s top 50 restaurants are Restaurant André and NakuGhin, Singapore’s celebrity restaurants. They are simply the best in every aspect and the comfortable and spacious spaces they inhabit are undeniably luring.

Singapore is admittedly a city of food because when all fails there are a host of cafes to visit. For those hunger pangs that arise at odd hours, you can visit Common Man Coffee Roasters and Flock Café. I am sure your only query is where it would be best to start your food safari in Singapore.
