Get a taste for this multi-cultural city-state through its delectable food scene
Singapore's food scene is unlike any other. From hawkers handing family recipes down the generations, and restaurants from relatively unknown regions of Southeast Asia, to experimental addresses peddling molecular gastronomy or focusing purely on desserts, its diverse culture (a mix of Malay, Chinese, Indonesian, Indian, Peranakan, Western) is best savoured through its food.
And, with the city-state's 50th anniversary of independence, now's the time to stop over.
