Singapore: Food                                       

Chinese, Indian, Malay, Indonesian and Western foods are all represented in Singapore cooking.

Nonya cooking is a local variation on Chinese and Malay food, mixing Chinese ingredients with local spices such as lemongrass and coconut cream. The popular spicy, coconut-based soup laksa is a classic Nonya dish.

Singapore is a great place to discover tropical fruit. Some examples include rambutan, mangosteen, durian, jackfruit, pomelo, and starfruit.





In Singapore, one word you should know in the Malay language is makan meaing eat. Because of Singapore’s unique heritage, and because it lies at the crossroads of the great East-West trade routes, it’s no wonder that it boasts an exciting range of authentic local cuisines.
