Great Singapore restaurants
Though it is impossible to measure such things, Singapore may well be the country with the most world class restaurants per capita on the planet. If you are planning to travel to Singapore make sure to bring an empty stomach, as there is an incredible multicultural platter of gourmet goods on offer.
Here are a few must-visit restaurants for the foody in Singapore.
Nasi Padang River Valley
This is one of the best places to get some traditional Malay grub on the island. The price is high but that is a reflection of the quality in store for any diner willing to pay it. While you might be able to get similar fare elsewhere for cheaper the quality will not be anywhere near the same. For the traveller looking for authentic Malay eats, this place is essential.

Those really in the mood to splash the cash should check out this funky, innovative eatery. The menu and interior both scream of the wild creativity of chef Andrew Walsh. Esquina serves tapas but, with items like wobbly roasted smoky bone marrow, spicy squid ink calamari and black olive ice cream, it's tapas as you are unlikely to have experienced it before.
If you are in the mood for something special but don't feel like splashing the cash, this great little restaurant offers quite the bargain. The Prawn Iaska is the menu highlight: a creamy, coconut milk broth, it houses a treasure trove of authentic, hearty umani goodness. Unmissable.

In the mood for some comfort food? Then head over to the elegant, welcoming Pete's Place where delicious wood-fired pizza, rich clam linguini and a terrific wine list will put a very big smile on your face.
