Having lived in Singapore for 10 months I got to know quite a few places to get food.
That’s why I want to give you a short list of must try restaurants in Singapore (especially if you are craving non-Asian food).
When I first got to Singapore I had a lot of problems in finding food for me because I don’t really like eating seafood or spicy food which made it very difficult for me to find good Asian food. But luckily I managed to survive!
↠ Satay by the Bay ↞
18 Marina Gardens Dr, Singapore 018953
OMG! I don’t know if you ever tried Satay Sticks but I can guarantee you that these are the best ever!
There are actually a couple of small stands that sell Satay but I highly recommend the stand on the left side right when you enter this outdoor food court. You get 14 Satay sticks for 10$ with a really good Peanut Sauce. What I always loved to eat with the Satay is an Ekmek from the Turkish Place.
↠ Urban Bites ↞
161 Telok Ayer St, Singapore 068615
This is a Lebanese/Mediterranean restaurant at Telok Ayer. But keep in mind that this restaurant is not open all day. Bummer. Anyways, this place has really good food and offers free mint or normal water. One of my favorite dishes there was a pomegranate-walnut dip with fresh bread. Yum…
↠ Piedra Negra ↞
241 Beach Rd, Singapore 189753
I really like Mexican Food and so I needed to find a good place in Singapore to get good Burritos or Tacos.
And so I found this place in Haji Lane (which is a great location itself).
↠ Lau Pa Sat ↞
2 Shenton Way, Singapore 068804
This is not a restaurant but a Hawker Center. You can find these all over Singapore but this one is probably the most famous among tourists. I really liked going there with friends. They have such a big variety of foods for quite good money. Of course, if you go to other non-famous hawker centers you can get good food for even cheaper but I think that when in Singapore, a trip to Raffles Place and Lau Pa Sat is a must!
↠ Simply Wrapps ↞
I went to this wrap place quite a few times to get some healthy and fresh wraps. You can actually choose all the ingredients you want in the wrap and even choose the tortilla bread! I can highly recommend this place. It might be slightly expensive but I always took half of my wrap home because I only managed to eat one-half.
↠ Pita Bakery ↞
29 Bali Ln, Singapore 189865
For a project for Uni, we actually had to interview a foreign business owner in Singapore and I went to this place because my friend and I went there one day and found the owner really friendly. We got to try some pitas and hummus and I must say: the Pitas are pretty amazing! It is a very small shop but they make their Pitas themselves and the owner even recognized me again even though I did not go there for a month (such a happy moment!).
↠ Each-a-cup ↞
So this is not a must eat but rather a must drink: Bubble Tea. There are a few different shops all across Singapore that sell Bubble Tea but I liked this one the most. You can choose your sugar and ice level. My favorite was the Honey Green Tea with no sugar but some ice (since Singapore is hot all day long).
Do you know any other good Restaurants in Singapore? Let me know by commenting below. I would love to try out something new next time I am there.
