What you may not know is that you are still missing out on a lot more good food if you just keep going back to that one place, no matter how good the food there is!
While it is not often deemed as so by many, Singapore is indeed a food paradise, and real foodies would agree! Here are five top restaurants, each serving different kinds of foods (and ambience) so you could make your pick based on what you are looking for. That said, you might want to bookmark this post before diving in!
1) Tian Wei Seafood – For a homely, local feel
Address: 81 Tagore Ln, #01-10 TAG A, Singapore 787502
No.: +65 6727 5596
A place for embracing the goodness of local foods! No other food describes authentic Singapore cuisine quite as good as Zi Char! A Zi Char menu normally presents a huge selection of rice-based dishes like the fish head steamboat, black pepper crab, and cereal prawn. A Zi Char place like this serves authentic dishes in which various cooking methods can be applied to one type of meat like chicken and pork or seafood, which you’ll find as you browse through the menu.
Tucked away in Tagore Lane, reserving a table or two here ensures that you can have your meals on time, avoiding all the traffics towards the centre of the city. After all, hunger and heavy traffic simply don’t make a good combination! One thing about Tian Wei Seafood that makes it stand out more than the others is that it serves the beyond spicy, tongue-numbing Mala Crab! If that intimidates you, fret not! The head chef has come up with three different levels of spiciness so you could adjust how spicy (or mildly spicy) you want your Mala Crab to be. Want to have a fulfilling meal without burning a hole in your pocket? Head down to Tian Wei Seafood tonight and enjoy a meal everyone in your family would love!
