ThetravellingG0urmet's City Tips

  • In high end restaurants, a 10% gratuity/service charge is already included, so no need to tip! As a rule, Singapore is generally very safe.. Singapore is the Switzerland of Asia.

    I was the very FIRST gourmet in the world to match Mooncakes with Moet and Chandon NV Champagne on 28 August, 2008 on the Singapore Flyer. At that time it was the world's biggest and highest giant observation wheel. You can also have dinner her in the evenings while the wheel goes around giving you spectacular panoramic views of the city state.

    Here you see how Singapore has been transformed from a sleepy backwater to become a dynamic city thanks to the late Lee Kwan Yew the 1st Prime Minister and his able and dedicated Ministers. The Theatres by the Bay aka the "Two Durians" due to its resemblance to the King of Fruits.

    This is where you can savour the finger licking good original Chilli Crab. The owner's mother created the recipe years ago. My good friend, Roland is the owner who runs the place with his son and brother. Mum pops in frequently to make sure the XChilli Crab is up to her standard! Also fantastic Dim Sum on weekends!
