You can get virtually any kind of food and cuisine from around the world in Singapore, from high-end restaurants to hole-in-the-wall joints. But our country’s best offering to the world must be our hawker centres. Veritable temples of small stalls selling indigenous and regional street-food under one roof, you can enjoy a full meal for about five dollars.
At Lau Pa Sat in the Central Business District, you can savour the best of our local cuisine as well as the delicate Victorian cast-iron structure of the unique octagonal building, and at Newton Food Centre you can enjoy your meal amidst cooler and greener surroundings as the centre features an open plan layout with architectural references from nearby colonial houses. Right in the heart of Orchard Road, a must try is the Takashimaya Food Village where you can get a taste of Singapore’s best cusine at 1 location.
