There’s nothing quite like eating in Southeast Asia. Street food, food halls, night markets — it’s one of the easiest places to experience a variety of delicacies at your finger tips. 

Singapore is at the top of the list of places where culinary exploration is off the charts and Afar has put together a list of places where visitors can find some of the city’s best eats. 

One place to start is Pek Kio Hawker Center says Afar local expert Arwen Joyce. 

“In the morning, kopi (local coffee) and soup shops do a swift business, and in the evenings, lines form in front of carrot cake (radish omelette) and wonton mee (wonton noodles) stalls,” writes Joyce.

Afar staff also highlights the Maxwell Food Centre for its stellar street food, advising readers to “check out the tasty Hainanese Chicken Rice at the famous Maxwell Food Centre; you'll want to find the Tian Tian stall.”

Singapore’s Redhill Market is also on the list. 

“Grab a seat at one of the newsprint-covered tables (or “chope” the table by putting down a pack of tissues to let others know it’s taken) and then stroll the aisles to check out what looks good,” writes Joyce.

These three will definitely get foodies started. For the rest, click here.
