For a delicious, mouth-watering experience of some of the best street food in Singapore, head over to the Chinatown Food Street located on Smith Street for a culinary experience that promises to leave your taste buds buzzing with flavour! Make sure that you make your accommodation base in one of the stylish serviced apartments in Singapore such as the kind featured at the Somerset Orchard Singapore. Located smack bang in the middle of Singapore’s most elite shopping mecca, these serviced apartments on Orchard Road Singapore offer you a singular hospitality experience in the midst of world-class entertainment and shopping options. If you are craving a unique explosion of cultural flavours, the Chinatown Food Street is the perfect host to satisfy those gastronomic urges. Some of the local favourites prepared to suit your degree of spiciness are the laksa, which is a rich and creamy coconut soup with thick and hearty hokkien noodles and oodles of vegetables, seafood, or meat; and the satay, otherwise known as sizzling chunks of meat or veggies on a stick. You have the option of dining al fresco under the sun (remember to bring ample amounts of water and sunblock!), or at night beneath the enchanting row of red Chinese lanterns affording a unique allure. If you’re in the mood for something unique, visit Boon Tat for their sensational BBQ squid, which many visitor

s have sampled and loved. Or try the delicious “Ah Boling”, which is a decadent peanut soup pumped with rice balls for some steaming goodness in a bowl. A reigning favourite with both locals and international visitors is the Chicken Bao available at Da Dong Dian Xin. Order the large portion and split among friends or indulge yourself; you’ll be in avian heaven.
