Dear tourists,

Newsflash: Singaporeans eat to live!

10) The durian, king of fruits!

You can smell it from a distance, a “fragrance” reminiscent of the pungent blue cheese Roquefort, and identifiable by its prickly appearance, many have described the durian as smelling of rot. Despite this, it has a light texture of buttery custard on the tongue. Unique to South East Asia, don’t leave Singapore without trying it!

9) Kaya Toast, the perfect Singaporean-East-Meets-West Breakfast

Singapore kopi and kaya toastKaya is a truly Asian spread made from eggs and coconut milk. Eat this with two three-quarter boiled eggs, a thick teh tarik, and life is good.

8) Chilli Crab, a Singaporean Superstar!

Popular among locals and tourists alike, this dish is native to Singapore and it involves getting down and dirty by eating with your hands. Absolutely barbaric, but I wouldn’t have this hot hot hot delicacy any other way!

7) Roti Prata

Definitely a competitor for French Crepes, these Indian-inspired Singaporean pancake beat all its international counterparts. Served plain or with eggs/onions/cheese/mushrooms/etc., and accompanied by a bowl of spicy curry, this dish is palatable any time of the day for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a mid day snack.

6) Char Kuay Teow
