Anyone who wishes to get a taste of South East Asia must surely visit Singapore. Truly a melting pot of cuisines, peoples and religions, food is available all day, from wonderful street food to haute cuisine in five star hotels and traditional tea shops.

With over 2,000 eating establishments Singapore has much to offer from Chinese, Malay, Northern and Southern Indian, Korean, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese and pizza. Nonya cooking is a mix of Chinese and Malay and comes closest to describing Singapore’s own food style, tending to be hot and spicy and in some cases quite complex, the recipes are a combination of chillies, turmeric, lemongrass, shrimp paste and nuts.
Classic Singapore dishes include Chilli or Black Pepper Crab, Curry Kapitain, Fried Singapore Noodles, Laksa Leemak and Hokkien Mee Soup.
When visiting Singapore crack some peanuts in the Long Bar at the Raffles Hotel, eat seafood on Boat Quay and take high tea at the Shangri-La Hotel.
