Singapore: A Taste of Singapore
A Taste of Singapore
In 1819, the British came to the island to build ports and to colonize the area. The ports were very successful and attracted a large number of migrants seeking work. People of Chinese, Indian, British, and Malay descent are among the main groups that moved to Singapore over the years and they have all influenced its diverse culture.
Chinese, Malay, and Indian are the main culinary styles that you can sample in Singapore. For example, can have the sweet coconut dish putu mayam for breakfast, Indian curry for lunch, and Chinese spring rolls for dinner, and still have only sampled a tiny variety of Singapore’s cuisine.
