One of the best places in the world to try street food is Singapore. The food is safe and quality is good. The first night of my stay in Singapore I went to East Coast Park, located about 15 minutes east of Singapore City. East Coast Food Village is the only seaside hawker centre in Singapore. Here I enjoyed delicious food, including several kinds of sate, and meanwhile had a great view over the beach and sea.
Two other good places to try Singapore street food are Maxwell Road Hawker Centre in Chinatown, where I ate delicious dim sum. And Bugis Hawker Centre. These place were crowded during lunch time, but the street food was worth to wait for.
A less crowded place where I had lunch was at Blair Road, west of Chinatown. This area also is interesting for people who are interested in Chinese architecture.
Furthermore I decided not to take breakfast in the hotel. Many hotels ask at least €10 for breakfast. I stayed in V Hotel Lavender and on ground floor there are several good bakeries and eateries. So every morning I started the day with a coffee and some delicious breads for only a couple of dollars that I ate in a nearby park. No queues for the buffet and a good and cheap start of the day!
