Singapore is unlike any other place in Asia. It’s a city with a lot of unusual rules: littering is illegal here, as is chewing gum, spitting, not flushing the toilet, singing in public, and feeding the pigeons. But as a result, it’s an extremely clean and very wealthy city, so well-maintained that it’s often compared to Disneyland. Singapore was recently featured in the movie “Crazy Rich Asians,” where the city was as much a character as the A-list actors. It’s a stunning and sparkling city, one that is extremely forward-thinking and sustainable.
But you’re here to find out where to eat! While Singapore has a plethora of fine-dining options, the most flavorful bites in town can be found in the hawker centers, where each stall typically specializes in one specific dish, such as Hainan chicken rice, or satay, or noodle soup, or dumplings. Anders first visited Singapore in 2016, and has returned two additional times to eat his way through the city. He was Kaitlin’s food guide on her first visit in June 2019, when Singapore hosted The World’s 50 Best restaurant ceremony. We ate at Anders’ old favorites, and tried a ton of new spots. Together we have compiled all our Singapore favorites in this foodie map. You’ll find coffee shops, natural wine bars, high-end restaurants, and, of course, the best hawker stalls in town. Navigate the map easily either by scrolling through the list on the right or by clicking the points on the map. Places are listed in geographical order.
