Coconuts Singapore Food & Drink

In this day and age, everything’s up in the air and lines are constantly becoming blurred. But one thing’s for sure – eating is the national hobby of Singapore. That much we know. Forget complaining or sleeping – we all love our food, and we’re always thinking about how best to maximize our stomach space to fill it with all the dishes we love (admit it). If we aren’t tucking into a plate of bak chor mee or nasi lemak at our favourite hawker centre, we’re probably dreaming about where to get our next durian dessert fix or arguing over which stall sells the best chicken rice ever. But that’s what makes Singapore so amazing when it comes to food – we’ve got such a mishmash of cultures, you can pretty much find any cuisine you’re craving for, from Japanese ramen and Korean fried chicken to Mexican tacos and Italian pastas. The perks of living in such a deliciously diverse metropolis? You won’t even have to break the bank to stuff your face, ‘cause the F&B scene here boasts an extensive range of affordable food courts, easily accessible takeaway joints, mid-tier cafes, and fancy fine dining restaurants. So if you want the lowdown on new eatery openings, menu switch-ups, visiting celeb chefs, pop-up food trucks, festive feasts, Insta-worthy creations and everything in between, come to us. We’ll help all you fickle foodies decide where to chow down on your next meal, so you won’t have to waste your hard-earned dollars on awful grub.
