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.

Can’t decide? Sample everything at places like Newton Food Centre, Lau Pa Sat and Makansutra Glutton’s Bay.

With a spread of dining deals available, there is no better time to visit the Lion City.
