the buzz





Set in an invaluable position along the India-China trade route, Singapore quickly grew to be one of the world’s most important port cities during the 19th century, attracting thousands of immigrants looking for better opportunities. As a result, many of the citizens of the island city-state today are of Chinese, Indian, and Malay descent. Perhaps Singapore’s diversity is most apparent in its food, a fusion of various cultures’ cooking styles into cuisine that’s uniquely Singaporean. In one of Singapore’s popular hawker centers (emporiums of cheap, delicious food), the mouth-watering options are endless. Wandering from stall to stall, one can nibble on the Malay specialty satay, stop to sample the Chinese treat Hainanese chicken rice, and finish things off with the Indian snack roti prata, a delicious fried dough. Of course, no visit to Singapore would be complete without a meal of fish head curry, arguably the country’s most famous dish. Both the Indian and Chinese versions of this dish are immensely popular across Singapore.

The honey mustard chicken is nice although I think the vegetables can do with more seasoning.
