The depth and diversity of local flavors is something to watch out for, while the mouthwatering flavours are something that you will relish lifelong.

  • Wanton Mee

Typically eaten dry, Wanton Mee tastes best when drenched with some light sweet sauce. This noodle dish is influenced by Hong Kong cuisine but has now become a part of the Singaporean food culture. The dish is accompanied by wanton dumplings, slices of pork char siew, and a small bowl of soup on the side.

  • Laksa

One of the yummiest dishes that you will taste in Singapore is Laksa. This dish is a cross between Malay and Chinese cuisine and comes in many variants. The most popular variant is the one in which rice noodles is served with chicken meat, fish cakes, egg, and spicy coconut curry soup. You may also ask to add tofu puffs and cockles.

  • Chili Crab

With tomato chili serving as the base, hard-shell crabs are served in a semi-thick gravy. Though the name of this dish has chili as the prefix, it is not actually that chili. Order bread along with the dish to soak the gravy and enjoy it to the fullest.
