EAT AS THE LOCALS EAT
Food is one thing that unites the otherwise multicultural nation, and it is so important to the Singaporean way of life that, "Have you eaten?" is a common way to greet people. While the list of must-try food is long, these are among the most popular.
Hainanese Chicken Rice: Poached chicken accompanies rice cooked in chicken stock and is usually paired with a small bowl of chicken stock and a variety of small condiments (chili sauce, fresh ginger and/or dark soy sauce).
Chili Crab: It is very common to eat this popular and not-too-spicy dish of mud crabs stir fried in a slightly thick tomato and chili sauce by hand.
Noodles: Try Char Kway Teow, flat rice noodles stir-fried in dark soy sauce with prawns, cockles, beansprouts, chives and often includes Chinese sausage with a mixture of other vegetables.
Satay: This kid-friendly favorite typically features chicken, beef, mutton or tripe on a skewer; and is usually served with a side of peanut sauce, cucumber and onion.
