SINGAPORE'S RESTAURANTS

With almost everything imported, maybe we'll never hit the heights of the greatest gastronomic institutions in the world. There are, however, still many wonderful restaurants in Singapore. Here's our favourites

 

SINGAPORE-STYLE SEAFOOD

Majestic Bay Seafood Restaurant—great chili crab, pepper crab, coffee crab, rice noodles with abalone, geoduck clam shabu-shabu, our default restaurant for visiting friends. Takes classic Singaporean dishes and elevates them with premium ingredients. At the base of Gardens By the Bay, could be nicely combined with a garden visit
