Top 5 Culturally Diverse Restaurants in Singapore
Food, glorious food! This word is constantly on our lips as our eyes are sheepishly looking for the next dish, restaurant, little bistro or place to have our lazy weekend lunch or conquer the evening with a good gourmet dinner.
Aside its practical use, eating has always been about sharing and gathering with friends and family. Think about it, whenever you hang out with your buddies or take your significant other on a date, you end up sharing a table, devouring some super delicious dish you’ve been craving for days or end up downing glasses of wine that go well with that dinner. It’s only natural!
Nowadays, we can’t and won’t complain about the diversity of restaurants out there. You could practically find yourself in any big city of the world and the huge variety of eating-places is outstanding.
Singapore is one of those places. Moreover, among others, food-wise it is considered one of the best cities in the world. Yes, it is a foodie place and we’re happy to encounter a world cuisine in the city we’re living in.
Together with the famous hawker-centers and local coffee shops, which are scattered all over the city, and literally at every corner of the street, Singapore is also blooming with restaurants. Be them decent priced or out of this world expensive, with a minimal design or traditionally decorated, these places have already become famous in the local food culture.
Since we are living in such a multicultural environment, we have decided to take a virtual tour around the best five culturally diverse restaurants in Singapore.
Fancy to try them? ☺
1. Jamie’s Italian.
It’s newly opened and it belongs to Jamie Oliver. We all know Jamie and his passion for Italian cuisine. Even though he is not Italian at all, we all agree that he should have been! His dishes are always mouthwatering and visually stunning.
Jamie’s restaurant can be found at VivoCity and we are sure you won’t regret visiting it.
You will find a rich menu that covers everything from antipasti to various types of pasta and risotto, main dishes based on meat and fish, super delicious salads and awesome desserts. Since we are talking about Italian fine dining, don’t forget to pair your dinner with a good wine. Their selection is wide and you can definitely choose something to your liking.
Thai cuisine has conquered the whole world through its fragrant and well-spiced curries and soups. The ingredients are nicely chosen and blended with condiments, that you simply cannot refuse a Thai meal!
Kha is one of those restaurants, which knows how to treat you well. As it is a fine dining establishment, you will hereby find a lovely atmosphere that will go together with the delicious and authentic dishes from the ‘Isaan’ region.
With aromatic flavours and interiors that resemble a traditional Thai house…what more could you wish for?
