From the cheap and cheerful to grand temples of fine dining, Singapore’s rich cultural heritage has produced some of the most exciting food anywhere.
I’m always happy to be in Singapore. It’s one of the great, great eating cities, and nobody says it enough. It has a fantastic natural cuisine but also this exciting mixture of Indian, Malay, English and Arab. Unlike other major Southeast Asian city’s – say Bangkok, Jakarta and Phnom Penh – Singapore is clean, neat, tidy, safe and efficient. My goodness, it’s efficient: restaurant bookings, taxis, public transport, a coffee order; and people smile here.
