Travelers would be happy to know that Singapore has been opening its borders to tourists. Though this is done slowly, there’s hope for those who have been itching to travel and explore. Singapore has earned the reputation of being a city that never sleeps and a sanctuary for people with restless hearts.
This is so because the city may be hustling 24/7, but it is never short on picturesque landscapes and lush, green spaces that evoke a relaxed kind of passion. Aside from these stunning sceneries, Singapore also takes pride in its delicacies that encapsulates what cultural fusion truly is.
Food you should try
Singaporean food is to-die-for, so never miss on the chance to try the best delicacies this country has to offer. Their food is as diverse as their culture. Here, you’ll get a taste of a blend of western, Indian, Indonesian, Chinese, and Malay food.
Chinese Hainanese chicken
Among them is Hainanese chicken paired with white rice. This steamed chicken dish is usually served for lunch. Its main selling point is the fragrant aroma and flavor that ooze out from the steamed rice. The chicken stock also completes the overall taste of the dish.
Singapore is also a haven for seafood lovers and when you’re here, never pass on the chance to taste their chili crab dish. This delicacy is made of hard-shell crabs that were cooked in thick chili and tomato gravy. With the crabs partially cracked, you can expect the flavors of the sauce to seep into the crab meat. The dish looks so inviting that you might not stop yourself from digging it with your hands.
If you’re a noodle lover, you can also try their infamous laksa — a dish made with rice noodles being mixed in coconut curry, chicken meat, egg, fish cakes, and shrimp. This Malay and Chinese cuisine is nothing but perfection.
