Singapore is known as Asia’s hub for diversity and inclusivity. It came about after the nation’s demand for foreign labour in the ’90s, and on its 44th National Day, Singapore was dubbed a “PossibiCity” as well.
Setting foot in Singapore is like alighting on different places. Sentosa.com.sg has the ultimate guide to help you get to the famous attractions of the country. In one corner, you have Chinatown, where the Sri Mariamman Temple stands next to the Jamae Mosque. On the other corner, you’ll find Arab Street or Little India.
When it comes to cuisine, Singapore also features a wide variety of flavours from all over the world. In the famous Sentosa Island alone, you’ll find different gastronomic spots that represent a range of cravings that can satisfy both the foodie and the wanderlust in you.
Signature Sweets from Korea and Japan
Singapore’s neighbouring countries brought their signature sweets to Sentosa’s hungry locals and tourists. Snowstory, a Korean dessert bar, not only offers the world-famous shaved ice treat but also brings the winter experience to hot and humid Singapore. The dessert bar is decorated with a snow theme that can be enjoyed by locals of all ages.
Another dessert stop known for bringing signature treats is Little Hokkaido. This café offers dairy desserts that Hokkaido is known for like soft ice creams and cheesecakes. The shop has its in-house brand of coffee that goes well with its desserts. It also has unique Japanese drinks like hojicha, ramune soda and float, white peach juice, and yuzu and honey juice.
Fusing Flavours in Fusion Kitchens
If you’re at the melting pot of Asia, it’s but fitting to sample flavours from fusion restaurants. These restaurants offer more than just a mix and match of food, taking elements from different countries and regions and turning them into unique flavours never previously tasted.
BaliThai (in case you haven’t guessed from their name) is a fusion of Thai and Indonesian cuisine. Mouth-watering dishes like phad prik tour, hotplate seafood tofu, peek gai sod sai, and crispy prawn cakes present a mix of salty, sweet, sour and spicy flavours.
Lastly, there’s MUSEO, which is not only a fusion of different regional influences but is a marriage of food and art. The restaurant is also a painting studio that holds regular art sessions. Patrons can tap into their creative side in the afternoon and enjoy the dine-in-a-cup menu for dinner.
Sentosa’s food scene is a reflection of the island’s vibrancy and energy. The merging of cultures is a culmination of passion, heat, and flavours all found in one diverse place.
