The Best Restaurants in Singapore

The StarTripper Journal presents the best places to dine in Singapore, both International gourmet and traditional cuisine.

Our Team to Singapore are two professional travelers living in Thailand.

Singapore, founded as a trading post of the East India Company by Sir Stamford Raffles in 1819, the world's third wealthiest country per capita, a thriving cosmopolitan city with a history deeply rooted in trade and commerce. Dining, along with shopping, is said to be the country's national pastime, and Singapore has become one of the world’s new culinary capitals.

Orchard Road is Singapore’s most well-known shopping belt – Wisma Atria and 313 Somerset, boast a mind-boggling array of department stores, shops, cafes, and food courts. Robinsons, The Heeren and Tangs are located here. Robinsons offers personalized shopping experiences within the VIP lounge, fashion, and curated home collections. Tangs boasts a vast apparel selection including local designers, as well as electronics and home goods. Stores range from local boutiques to international brands in the mega malls along this world-famous street.

Singapore’s food scene is a wonderful mix of cultures, ingredients and cooking methods – a food-crazy continent. Singapore serves up so many options it can be difficult to choose where to eat – the range has expanded to include Italian, Spanish, Lebanese, Turkish, Nepalese, Vietnamese, Thai and more. Singapore is really one of the food capitals of Asia.

So come on, shake it loose, shop, dine and enjoy until the dark fall on, and then why not go dancing on the one of the exciting nightclubs.

Currency is Singapore dollar (SGD).
