Singapore, symbolized by the iconic Merlion is a place where cultures meet and flavours mix.
The Little Red Dot on the world map, Singapore is the fusion of the old and new Asia, merged with influences from East and West. In this melting pot of different cultures, one finds gastronomic delights from many different parts of the world.
You can treat yourself to Chinese specialties, traditional Malaysian fare, Indian meals, Peranakan (Singapore’s oldest fusion cuisine), or try out international cuisine including Japanese and Korean spreads, Thai food, Arab delicacies, Moroccan buffet, Spanish bites, Italian feast, or French banquets.
What is more remarkable is that even for a non-fish and a non-meat eater like me, Singapore has enough to delight the taste buds.
