singapore restaurant dining foodSingapore has great variety when it comes to food, whether you're craving local Asian tastes or gourmet dining. There are various "dining districts" filled with restaurant choices.

Near Boat Quay is Clarke Quay, a waterfront strip of pubs, wine bars and restaurants. Cuisines represented include Cantonese, Turkish, Italian, Spanish (tapas), Vietnamese and more.

In Little India, you'll find all manner of Indian eateries.

The hottest restaurant in the area around the Esplanade/Raffles City is My Humble House, known for its contemporary take on Chinese cuisine. Advance reservations are strongly recommended -- we weren't able to get a seat on our trip. Adjacent is a more casual (still chic, still popular) spin-off called Space@My Humble House; we couldn't get in there, either!

On Orchard Road, there's a huge variety of eating places; one of our favorites was the food hall in the basement of Takashimaya, a Japanese department store.

At the Singapore Botanic Garden, Au Jardin, with both inside and alfresco seating, is a lovely spot for lunch. It's no surprise that it spotlights cuisine using locally sourced ingredients, but the menu's originality is delightful.
