Singapore, as the meeting point of all cultures Chinese, Indian and Malaysian, offers a unique cultural experience to travellers. This cultural blend is highly noticeable in Malaysian dishes as well.

Chilli crabs

If you head to a restaurant of a luxury hotel in Singapore the likes of PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, chilli crabs will be one of the best dishes you’ll come across. Since they use Sri Lankan crabs for this dish, you’ll find the crabs extra meaty.

Fish head curry

It’s not just the large heads of fish you find in this dish, but also veggies (such as okra). The Indian community prepares the best fish head curries in Singapore.

This dish is available at restaurants and even at hawker centres. It’s a dish of broad white noodles fried with black soya sauce and Chinese sausages.

Bak Kut Teh and Rice

Everyone loves Chinese herbs and spices. Bak kut teh is prepared by immersing these Chinese flavours in pork ribs and then seasoning with light and dark sauce. They have a halal version of this dish too.

Nasi Lemak

Packed in a banana leaf, Nasi Lemak is indeed a hearty meal in Singapore. You find chilli paste, a slice of omelette, and a piece of cucumber inside.
