Contrary to what's said in the movie, the best satay in Singapore is not in Newton. You're better off saving your money by heading to East Coast Lagoon Food Village for some Haron Satay. The marinated meat on sticks are unbeatable here, that's the reason why they have been in the business for a long, long time. Choose from chicken, beef and lamb satay, pair it with rice cakes and tasty peanut sauce, take in the sea breeze and you're in your own tropical heaven.
If you're going to do a film set in Singapore, you need to dedicate a chunk of screentime to the variety of local food we have here. Despite its flaws, that's probably what Crazy Rich Asians did right – it had everything from hawker fare and homecooked goodness to over the top wedding banquets only the wealthy can afford. If that Newton hawker centre montage made you drool a little, here's something to get you proper hungry.
