Singapore is a nation that prides itself as one of the best for food in Asia. But with the lacklustre results of the recent Singapore Michelin Guide 2018, which failed to produce a single three-Michelin-starred restaurant, the local dining scene was met with international headlines that read: “Singapore’s Famous Food Scene Gets Taken Down A Notch”. Still, the gastronomical city-state is unshaken. Eateries continue to roll out their interesting iteration of — if we do say so ourselves — five-star local offerings. And with National Day 2018 just around the corner, a wondrous showcase of the country’s rich culinary diversity will be in full force.
