Whether it is unique dining concepts, old-time favourites or award-wining cuisines, your tastebuds will thank you when you indulge in the food in Singapore.

For variety on a budget, visit the local coffee shop known as the 'kopi tiam' (say 'ko-pee tee-yum') - commonly found in residential areas with many small stalls selling simple, local food. Slightly bigger is the hawker centre, typically offering a wide selection of inexpensive dishes and the best way to enjoy local fare. Popular centres include the ones at Maxwell Road, Chinatown Complex Food Centre and Tiong Bahru.

If you prefer Korean, Japanese, Italian, French or other international flavours, there are also close to 7,000 restaurants for you to choose from. Popular dining hotspots include Holland Village, Dempsey Hill, Club Street and Bras Basah.
