Blistering heat, street food and an array of multicultural dishes on offer are just some of the trademarks of Singapore. It’s only a five hour plane ride, and sometimes just heading in for 48 hours only is enough. Just a taste of all those tangy flavours that the country is famous for.
When I’m in Singapore I feel like all I do is eat. I gorge and walk and sweat and gorge some more. From the more relaxed pacing of dining at markets and on the street, to munching away while I’m out and about. It’s no wonder this is one of my favourite hubs to dine at.
While Din Tai Fung hits those nostalgic notes of Taiwan cuisine for me, the fusion styles of Haramiya presented a great night out. Then there’s the traditional joints Kway Guan Huat, No Signboard Seafood, Roland Restaurant, Sungei Road Laksa, The Fishball Story and Tian Tian Chicken Rice – they all demonstrate with good reason why they are so popular. And they definitely need to be considered when planning a trip to this little slice of paradise.
I’d definitely like to try more of their fine dining scene. But dipping my toe into the water at the Tippling Club was an excellent demonstration of just how incredible the culinary landscape is in Singapore. I left with a giggly head from all those delicious cocktails, and a very full belly from course after course of delights.
