Nothing brings people closer than a shared love for food. Singapore is a melting pot of cultures and it reflects in the very flavours of our cuisines. Indulge in the delicious taste of Singapore’s favourite dishes even as air travel is largely limited today – we chat with our SGN friends from all around the globe on their recommendations for the most sedap and shiok eats for a taste of home away from Singapore.

Are the places featured still a little far off for you? Why not try out some of these recipes by the members of our SGN community instead:

Check out Monica Devi Lim’s three-part Lockdown Cooking series that features authentic Singapore chicken rice, an Asian take on pasta vongole, and some indulgent (very guilty) bakes. If you’re looking for something hearty, why not try out Rozz’s recipes for bak kut teh porridge and bak chor bee hoon

Pro tip: You can pop by your local Asian grocer to pick up most of the ingredients. Don’t forget to keep a look out for familiar brands!
