My Favourite Food in Singapore

Hi there. Thanks so much for dropping by. I’ve moved to Singapore Actually

Hope to see you there 🙂


I was thinking this list should come with a disclaimer as many people in Singapore take food very seriously and I am no food critic.  I didn’t go to culinary school and I can’t cook for nuts.  This is just a list of my absolute favourite food, beverages and desserts in Singapore.

    That’s great that Domino’s Pizza is on your list as the best pizza in Singapore! We have that in Ohio too. I wonder if it’s the same recipe.

    Great list but Dang! Now I am hungry.
    When I visit, one of my favorite things is charcuterie and cheese at Jones The Grocer. A bit decadent but oh-so-good for a mid-afternoon or late(r) night snack.

    p.s. Found your blog via the Ion X’mas tree, which was tagged with “photography”.

    I have had such a great time reading your blog! So glad I found you on your SITS day. I wish I’d seen this post in January before we had a holiday there! I will remember this for next time.

    Best wishes,

    I am new to your blog and I love it! To add to your list of your favourite fast food, what do you think of McSpicy burger? I like that burger so much and that is the thing that I always have at least once when I go to Singapore 🙂

      Oh yes…I thought I was the only one who liked it. It’s really addictive too. DIdn’t know that you could only get it in Singapore.

      Thanks so much for your kind words merry 🙂 So glad you dropped by.
