Singapore - Food shopping
Food is an essential part of Singapore’s heritage and helps to bring together the Chinese, Malay and Indian backgrounds of its multicultural citizens. Eating out with friends and family is an important part of daily life. The variety of eating places is huge, ranging from exclusive restaurants in five star hotels to the humble hawker stall.
American fast food is everywhere. Fast food chains like MacDonald’s, KFC, Burger King and Pizza Hut and coffee shops chains like Starbucks and Spinelli’s have many outlets. There are many restaurants serving Italian, French and other European cuisines.
There are many specialty stores and delicatessens catering to different national groups and a few stores sell organic, macrobiotic and other health foods mostly imported from Australia and the USA.
