Eating & Drinking in Singapore

Singaporeans love going out and they are passionate about food whether it's hawkers' stall food or gourmet. They also love to hang out at funky clubs and chic bars.

Singapore is well known for its range of ethnic foods, from Chinese,Indian,Thai and Malay, to French, Russian, Middle East and Pacific Fusion. It may be a small country, but the choice of food available can confuse the first time visitor to Singapore. Probably the most distinctive eating places in Singapore are the hawker centres which house dozens of food and drink stalls under one roof. Walk around the whole place and check out what you would like before ordering. Prices are cheap and comparable to those in coffeeshops.. When ordering, tell the hawker your table number and you should get your food within 10-15 minutes. Usually open 10am to about midnight.

Choosing a restaurant or a food to try is not easy, and the following is only a guide to some of the best ethnic foodie experiences in Singpaore. For the ultimate Singaporean experience, the visitor should always try the hawker stalls and sample Nonya cooking.

Hawker Stall - Lau Pa Sat (Old Market)
Lau Pa Sat (Old Market) was built in 1894 and is now a national monument built around the largest Victorian filigree castiron structure in S.E. Asia. Its hawker stalls are legendary and serve food until the early hours of the morning. It is located in the heart of the business district. Take the MRT to Raffles Place then head up Robinson Road to Boon Tat Street.

Clarke Quay on the Waterfront, Singapore
