The Food of Singapore
Wondering what culinary delights await you should you ever make the trip to Singapore? Before diving into the types of cuisine, let’s explore where you may be indulging in these fine eats. Hawker centers, commonly found in Singapore, Malaysia, and Hong Kong, are outdoor hubs lined with inexpensive eateries, like an American food court, just government owned and held to a slightly higher standard. Should you find a suitable stall to dine in, you may find yourself chowing down on the “national” dish, chicken rice, or other favorites like fried carrot cake, laksa, kaya toast, rojak, char kway teow, or hokkien prawn mee. Being a coastal country, expect a lot of seafood, including crab, prawns, and the occasional fish head.
