I would be lying if I said that the food is not one of the best things about living in Singapore. From hawker centres to high end restaurants, Singaporeans are passionate about their food and there is no dish you cannot find mastered here. The cuisine in Singapore is unique compared to other Asian countries because of the rich history and diversity of traditions present in this small island. Whilst Chinese cooking methods and recipes have had a major influence over the local dishes served, that is heavily over laid with the type of ingredients available in this hot and humid part of the world, in addition to further Malay, Indian, European, and other Asian cooking influences.
After just one year of living in Singapore, I have eaten my way through many hawker centres and there are a few local dishes that have become firm favourites of mine. Take this fun quiz to find out how well you know all the favourite dishes of Singapore and discover some new places to eat here as well!
