Singapore’s Foodie Feasts
Eating is Singapore’s favourite pastime. If you appreciate a good meal, there’s a cuisine for every taste and budget. Start with popular street food that reflects our many cultures. Proceed to local restaurants for an authentic taste of iconic dishes, and finally, graduate to Michelin-starred establishments for fi ne dining. There has never been a better time to experience the city’s culinary scene as it continues to both excite and innovate.
Surrounded by the dynamic cultures of Southeast Asia, with all their regional culinary nuances, Singapore has drawn from these influences to form an array of eating experiences, from Chinese to Malaysian and Indian, each with its unique aroma and flavour.
The best way to gain insights into local gastronomic tastes is to visit the hawker centres. Lau Pa Sat Market, Maxwell Food Centre in Chinatown or Makansutra Glutton’s by the Bay are some of the nation’s most popular spots. Here you can try a myriad of mouth-watering local dishes such as Hainanese chicken rice, chilli crab, or the rich spicy noodle soup ‘laksa’.
The launch of Singapore’s inaugural Michelin Guide in July this year has seen hawker stalls awarded stars alongside local and celebrity chefs.
And no visit would be complete without a Singapore Sling, the cocktail forever associated with the Long Bar at Raffles Hotel. Or try more contemporary cocktails in the many vibrant roof-top bars such as 1-Altitude, LeVel.33 or Ce La Vi, offering spectacular views over the night time skyline and showing off Singapore’s cosmopolitan glamour.
Culinary cruising from Singapore with Holland America Line
Elegant mid-sized ships sail from Singapore on 13 to 15-night winter cruises that feature the highlights of Indonesia – including Java, Komodo Island and beautiful Bali. The fascinating Far East Discovery departs from Singapore to Ko Samui (Thailand), with an overnight stay in Laem Chabang (Bangkok), then heads for Cambodia and Vietnam with a day cruising the limestone stacks of Halong Bay.
Some cruises already include an overnight on board in Singapore, however it’s easy to extend your clients’ stay in the city. Stay for three nights to truly experience what Singapore has to offer.
Across a choice of elegant restaurants, cafes and eateries – from a casual bite pool-side, a complimentary iced tea on deck to a five course affair served with panache, guests enjoy the most delicious dining experiences.
