Popular Foods in Singapore

Many people have asked me what are the popular foods in Singapore. Well Singapore is a place of many cultures and has many variety of foods suitable for the young and old and all around the world. The restaurants, hawker centres, food courts, kiosks, food outlets all provide such a vast variety from local, indian, malay, nyonya, and some are fusion cultivated from the cross heritage. The Peranakan or also called Nyonya food is an example of cross heritage of Chinese Hokkien descendants to Singapore, married to the Malay traditional food thus create a food with Chinese and Malay dominance.
