Singapore's eateries are numerous and offer a wealth of different cuisines, due to the fact that the city has always had a melting pot of a population, where different cultures and nationalities mix. While many of the cuisines here are Asian in background, there's also a high level of western influence, with Eurasian and fusion foods becoming increasingly popular. Thanks to the ever more diverse Singaporean population, the city really is one in which you can eat your way around the globe.
