Best Singapore Food For Kids
There are many delicious Singapore food for kids to eat on your
holidays. Singapore's cuisine is ethnically diverse, as is its
population. Your family will be able to enjoy the mix of Indian,
Chinese, Malay and Indonesian dishes. There is, of course, food
available from all around the world. The usual fast food restaurants are
also all over the place too.
A visit to the hawker stalls
is a must do when you travel to Singapore with kids. My kids love these
type of places. Your table will be assigned a number. There will be
various stalls specializing in a few dishes. Wander around and order
your dishes from the vendors. They will deliver them to your table. This
is a great way to experience lots of delicious Singapore dishes on a
budget. You will usually find satays, noodle dishes, soups, butter
chicken and curries and lots more! The stalls have a hygiene rating from
the government of A, B or C. Stick to the A or B ratings to be safe.
will also find large food courts in many of the malls offering
traditional Singapore food as well as international fare at a cheap
price. You will find something for everyone at these places!
