Things to Keep in Mind While Eating in Singapore

  • Be aware of the different cutlery used in the cuisine - from chopsticks, spoons and forks. Some dishes even require you to use hands
  • Be careful about nut and soy allergies, and lactose intolerance - most dishes use nuts, soy and dairy
  • If you do not have a high tolerance for spice, ask your chef beforehand to go easy on the spice
  • Street-food joints sell out fast or have long lines, so reach the joints quickly and avoid the long waiting period
  • Don't forget to Instagram your food! #FoodPorn much?
