Singapore restaurants

Singapore is better known for its convergence of cultures than for its own culture, and its dining scene reflects that. While many of the city's restaurants draw on the cooking of its three main population groups—Chinese, Malay, and Indian—there are also numerous eateries serving sophisticated international cuisine. If Singapore does have a distinctive culinary tradition, though, it's noodles, especially laksa, a dish of velvety white rice noodles in curried coconut gravy, usually served with baby shrimp, fried egg, and chicken. Locals tend not to be fussy about mealtimes: Over the weekend, brunch flows seamlessly into early dinner. Dining prices here can be expensive; a high-end dinner will cost about the same here as it would in a major American city like Los Angeles.
