With the international food scene in Singapore booming, it's no surprise that Chinese cuisine is one of the favourites here, as well as in many other countries. A signature dish from Chinese food culture that we can't get enough of is roast duck. We'll always love the traditional version, but there are some Asian eateries in Singapore who are also pushing the boat out and putting their own spin on the classic Peking duck. The results are delicious, so we're taking a trip around Singapore to seek out some quirky dishes that will open your mind to the world of food innovation.
