When asked my favourite thing about Singapore without hesitation I reply the food. What Singapore lacks in culture and edge, it makes up in tasty, affordable, local food.
Even for someone who cannot eat wheat or soya sauce there are a plethora of tasty options in the little red dot. And truth be told anyone with a food restriction would be hard pressed not to find options here. Vegetarian? Not a problem - we've got a ton options be they Indian, Malay, Chinese, or Western. Cannot take pork because you keep kosher to some extent - not a problem - see the sentence before and don't hesitate to try the Muslim hawker stalls - just keep in mind they may have shellfish. Health nut? Don't worry our coffee shops have you covered with yogurt and muesli or pick up fresh cut fruit at the hawker centre. Down right picky? I dare you to not find at least one stall at a hawker centre with something you can eat.
My favourite things here in Singapore are local food, but to keep my health in check I do tend to eat my fair share of salads. Now, if you were to ask me what I miss most about New York, after the people a strong cup of coffee would be the answer. With both eating restrictions in mind and a strong desire to find the best cup of coffee, I'm on a mission to find the best eats and drinks in Singapore.
