Singapore has great variety when it comes to food, whether you're craving local street food 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, Persian, Indian, Mexican, Spanish (tapas), Vietnamese and more.
In Little India, you'll find all manner of Indian eateries.
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.
Looking for a splurge? Rhubarb, a French restaurant with just seven tables, is lauded by locals and visitors alike for its degustation menu (recent offerings included foie gras with king crab and beef with snails). Children under 8 are not permitted.
Try one of Singapore's most unique dining experiences at NOX - Dine in the Dark, where visitors sit in a pitch-black dining room and are served by visually impaired waitstaff. Many diners find that their other senses are enhanced as they eat and drink this way. (Just to be safe, you may not want to wear your nicest outfit!)
The Curry Culture is one of the best Indian restaurants in town. There's a broad menu with numerous options for vegetarians, but -- as you'd expect from the name -- curries are the specialty.
