Singapore and Food: Made for each other!!

Did you know that Singapore has a food culture that is deep-rooted in all of its denizens? Well, even if you didn’t know, it will not take long for you to figure that out once you arrive in Singapore as you will see this frenzied food culture everywhere. Food centers, communal eating, personal and business meetings planned over food and a live to eat culture are very much an integral part of Singapore.

And the multi-cultural nature of this city ensures that there is no dearth of cuisines. You can enjoy a Lebanese meal with at Arab street, an Indonesian meal at the Malaysian quarter, a South Indian meal at Little India, a Hainanese Chicken Rice meal at Chinatown and many other global culinary offerings. And this culinary experience runs from inexpensive street stalls to moderately priced food centers to top of the line boutique restaurants.

You don’t need to look hard to find a good restaurant here in Singapore and the best part is that the variety is tremendous and the taste is really very good. And even vegetarians have a lot of options here. I am a vegetarian and I simply loved this food culture.

And the icing on the cake is that this food culture does not end with food, but continues into the night with a great drinking and party scene. Starting with Zouk to the many clubs, bars and lounges on and around orchard road and other happening spots of the city, the food and drink culture lives on. The famous Singapore Sling drink is an icon in this circuit.

Even a tourist gets be a part of this food culture due to 2 main reasons. One, this culture is very infectious and second, Singapore being a small city, every place is very accessible to everyone. This food and drink culture is definitely one of the top things to do in Singapore for a visiting tourist. The locals will anyways be indulging in it every time.
