Where to try them
Singapore is Asia’s food paradise. Step into any food centre and you will be spoilt for choice by the array of cuisines offered.
|You’ll find all sorts of Chinese dishes under one roof at Maxwell Food Centre in Chinatown: century egg congee, char kway teow (flat rice noodles stir-fried with pork lard and cockles) and the world-famous Hainanese chicken rice from Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice.|
|If you are seeking vibrant flavours, Malay fare delivers, with use of herbs and spices. For satay (grilled meat on skewers, served with a spicy peanut sauce), try one of the many pushcarts at Satay by the Bay. Hajah Maimunah in Kampong Glam is famous for its nasi padang, white rice served with a choice of meat and vegetable dishes.|
|Peranakan (Straits Chinese) fare combines both Chinese and Malay flavours. For Peranakan eateries, head to the Katong precinct. Try laksa, a noodle dish with spicy coconut milk-based broth, at 328 Katong Laksa, or hit restaurants like Guan Hoe Soon for good old Peranakan fare.|
With a spread of dining deals available, there is no better time to visit the Lion City.
