Restaurants in Singapore

The residents of Singapore love to eat out. By one estimate there are 20,000 restaurants feeding its population of 5 million. Some of the best restaurants in Singapore are white glove, gourmet destinations while more humble options include countless street food stalls—with its rigorously enforced health codes, you can dine at them without fear. Singapore restaurants run the gamut of cuisines—at the crossroads of Southeast Asia, you'll find Thai, Malay, Indonesian and other options, while the country's large Indian population has the subcontinent's cuisine covered. Unique to Singapore, and a few cities in Malaysia, is Peranakan cuisine, a hybrid of Chinese and Malaysian cuisines.

To experience the full range of the city's culinary scene, check out Singapore restaurants that are a once-per-trip splurge, like Saint Pierre, as well as the food stalls. In Saint Pierre's formal central business district dining room, the kitchen serves dishes that are a unique combination of Japanese and French. The selection of foie gras is one of its specialties. When it's time to check out some of the more wallet-friendly options, Hainanese chicken is an unofficial national dish—chicken poached in stock and served with a chili and garlic sauce.
