In the April issue of Time Out Singapore: The best places for local dishes

Written by
Iliyas Ong

Which is the best laksa in Singapore? Or chicken rice, char kway teow and chilli crab? Questions like these are loaded, poignant and so hotly debated among locals they’re pretty much philosophical. So we called a symposium.

We asked our readers what their favourite local dishes are and where we could find them, and then we ate our way across the island to try them all. I can’t say I agree with the majority (328 Katong Laksa, seriously?), but, hey – in most cases the popular votes do matter. We round up what Singaporeans love eating, where to find them, and what it's like to be in a hawker's boots. 

Of course, what's a meal without some desserts? Complete yours with our list of the best local sweet treats. 

Ever wondered what it's like to have a personal shopper? In this issue, we find out. From high-street brands like Zara to Club 21, we try out these styling services and got our wardrobe sorted. 

And if you're planning a staycation sometime soon, look this way. We checked in to various boutique hotels around the island to let you know which ones are worth checking out.
