Singapore is often described as “cosmopolitan” and a “melting pot” of cultures and the variety of food found here certainly reflects that.
These days, living in the suburbs of the San Francisco Bay Area, I’m pretty spoilt for choices when it comes to Asian food. There’s Korean, Vietnamese, Thai, Taiwanese, Cantonese, Indian and Pakistani foods available. But in Singapore the variety of Chinese restaurants is wider, with plenty of Hokkien and Teochew restaurants as well as Singapore’s own blend of unique dishes. Not to mention all the cafes (and finally, good flat whites!), and other cuisines like Italian, French, German and more.
So for the past five days that I’ve been here, there’s been so much eating. I wish I could tell you everything I’ve been eating but that’s probably way too much – you could check out my Instagram feed (olduvaireads) for more!
Other things consumed but not photographed well or photographed at all – the other kind of carrot cake, the fried one. Hokkien mee. Roti prata. Chicken rice. Duck rice. Chwee Kueh. Fish noodles. Braised duck. Sushi.
And the eating continues!
