Singapore is a food-lover’s paradise. Offering all kinds of local specialties and international cuisines to its visitors, the destination will definitely surprise you with its toothsome delicacies.

From Chinese, French, Italian to Indian and Malay, you will get everything to satisfy your food cravings. While several Hawker Centres serve you with flavorful chilli crabs and sambal stingray, you can sip in an amazing afternoon tea at the famous Raffles Hotel.

Meet locals and have an early breakfast with them at legendary Tiong Bahru Food Center or Forty Hands. While the former serves you a typical breakfast of toast, eggs and coffee, the latter is known for its fulfilling morning meal.
