OUR BURGEONING F&B SCENE
It’s amazing that a nation as tiny as Singapore boasts a culinary scene with such a variety of food, it could rival that of just about any big city in the world. There’s our traditional cuisine, which is a constant source of pride with its rich heritage and incredible avours. Following the inux of big-name chefs with the opening of Marina Bay Sands in 2010, the dining scene has also exploded with options; we’ve cycled through trends such as ultra-luxe ne dining restaurants – think the likes of Waku Ghin and Restaurant Andre – and the hip and more affordable concepts by young chefs. Right now, even our local cuisine is enjoying a moment of renaissance: Home-grown chefs are experimenting with fusing familiar avours using modern techniques, or marrying Eastern and Western inuences – restaurants such as Wild Rocket, Labyrinth and even the hipster-cool gastropark Timbre+ are all adept at it. With the long-awaited launch of the local edition of The Michelin Guide, Singapore has nally sealed her reputation as one of the food capitals of the world.
