Food Culture in Singapore – Flavours You Must Savour!

From western dishes to typical Chinese cuisine, Malay food to Japanese cuisine, the food culture in Singapore is an indication of a cultural diffusion in its local context!

 

A multi-cultural explosion

One aspect that Singapore is well-known across the world is because of its food culture. Singapore’s cuisine has been influenced by its surrounding countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, China, Thailand, Indonesia, and India. With diverse influences and traditions intertwining, the Singaporean cuisine will indulge you in an unforgettable culinary journey with its unique blend of flavors.

 

The three important pillars

The Singaporeans are extremely proud of the culinary heritage of the country. Noodles, rice, and seafood are known as the three pillars of Singapore cuisine. Noodles are normally served stir-fried or in soup. Most of the rice dishes tend to be of Chinese, Indian or the “over rice” variety. Being an island-city state, there is no wonder that Singapore is home to some of the amazing seafood dishes like BBQ Crayfish, Sambal Stingray, and Black Pepper Crab.

 

Where to eat

There is no surprise that Singapore is called “a food obsessive’s paradise”! One could find a myriad of dining spots ranging from hawker centres to high-end restaurants. If you are residing at a hotel apartment in Singapore the likes of Citadines Fusionopolis Singapore, you’ll find many dining venues to savour authentic Singapore dishes.

 

Essentials

The brilliance of the Singapore cuisine lies in its bold flavours and intense aromas. Coconut is an essential ingredient when cooking most of the Singaporean dishes. In addition, spices like cumin, saffron, and cinnamon are added to both sweet and savoury dishes to make food richly flavorful and aromatic.
