Full description
Learn about Singaporean cuisine which is famous for its diversity and variety of influences from several ethnic groups. This is largely due to its history as a major seaport with a large immigrant population.

Explore the charming neighborhood and its Peranakan cuisine on a private guided tour. Embark on a culinary journey and taste a variety of local foods.

Peranakan people are descendants of early Chinese migrants who settled in Singapore and intermarried with local Malays. Peranakan cuisine is a fusion of Chinese ingredients and spices with the Malay cooking techniques. As such, dishes are distinguished by their unique aromas, textures, and tastes.

During your tour, you will taste a variety of foods including Curry Puffs, Roti Prata, Teochew Kueh (dumplings), and many more. You may also pick up one or two Singlish words, a delightful slang consisting of English, Malay, Hokkien, Teochew, and Cantonese.
