From Singapore Hotels & Singapore Lifestyle
Restaurants are a part of everyday Singapore life.
There are few places in the world where life revolves around food quite like it does in Singapore. Singaporeans talk about food all the time just like the English talk of the weather. The city has restaurants of every imaginable cuisine, for every imaginable budget.

Restaurants in Singapore
Variety of Cuisines
The wide racial mix of Chinese, Malays and Indians, as well as an expatriate population from all over the world, has led to a range of cuisines in Restaurants which is nothing less than incredible. These waves of immigrants brought with them their favourite dishes, ingredients and techniques, resulting in a variety of food which has merged then re-emerged as unique.

Restaurants by Location
Restaurants in areas such as Boat Quay, Tanjong Pagar, Clarke Quay, Holland Village and Pasir Panjang feature new Dining concepts, while waterfront Dining hubs - One Fullerton, Stadium Waterfront, Robertson Quay and Empress Place Waterfront - are developing faster than you can whip up an appetite. Today, there are few International Cuisines which aren't well represented here, so much so that the choice is becoming wonderfully daunting. For most Singaporeans, however, nothing beats local Indian Cuisine, Chinese Cuisine, Malay & Indonesian Cuisine and Peranakan Cuisine specialities - and homegrown favourite dishes like Fish Head Curry and Chilli Crab.

- Dining Concepts: Destination Dining
For the more adventurous, you may want to try a dining option that's far far away from the city and the usual hang-out haunts. Here, the inaccessibility and "exoticness" of the restaurants enhances the whole experience, with "fresh air" to go with the food.
In fact, destination dining is fast becoming popular with many Singaporeans and restaurants in a park offer a unique back-to-nature dining experience. It is one of the leisure options that our parks offer to cater to the diverse and increasingly sophisticated lifestyle needs of Singaporeans. Afterall, unlike other countries, Singapore has very little hinterland and Singaporeans can't always be taking vacations. People who live in the city need to get out of the city and away from the stress of work.
Restaurants that blend in with nature are not entirely new on the local dining scene. The National Parks Board (NParks) has been leasing space to Food & Beverage operators in its parks since the 1970s. Currently, there are about 40 restaurants and cafes located within its parks.
