Guidebook for Singapore

Essentials
Amazing wet market specialising in seafood at wholesale prices. Primarily Halal, so there might be limits to purchases (e.g. no pork, non-conventional cuts of meats). Loads of options to local grocery fare such as petai, wing beans, dried shrimp, belachan, and loads loads more! A definite must-see site for a dedicated foodie and cook. Do note that wet markets in Singapore generally don't open on Mondays and operate only till noon.

Food Scene
Northern Chinese cuisine anyone? Northern Chinese might be a little foreign to some, and makes use of spices such as cumin, sesame, chilli, and can be quite different from common everyday Chinese fare. This spot has skewers that is charcoal roasted right on your table, and you can even get a whole shoulder of lamb (highly recommended!) Sited in the gloriously seedy and vibrant Geylang, it's worth a visit for the delicious food, and sticky beak into Singapore's 'underbelly' town. Restaurant is open till 6am, and decorated in a bizarre but fascinatingly kitsch manner reminiscent of a colour-blind nanna on crack.

Awesome cozy restaurant that has limited seating, so you have to get reservations in fast. Dinners are next to impossible to book without being at least a week's advance booking, so lunch might be a better bet. Helmed by Aussie David Pynt, formerly from Noma out of Denmark, the restaurant is simply titled as a BBQ joint, but it's far far more than that. Bring your credit card - you'll need it, but it's worth it.

Drinks & Nightlife
Nearest pub to the apartment. Drinks are ok, but BBQ is not the best. Dont recommend eating there unless desperate or seriously craving bad BBQ.

Great little wine bar with good selection at non-crazy prices. Simple food to line your stomach before a night of indulgence. It is a chain across Singapore (plus some other parts of Asia), and for a fuller selection, its big brother locations at Robertson Walk are a cooler bet.

Structured like a speakeasy, this cool little joint serves beautifully made cocktails. Pricey, but a nice way to start off the night. The mysterious little bar has no signage, and you just have to push open the door to the side to gain entry.

The Flower Dome & Cloud Forest Dome are stunning. Do go about 4 or 5pm, and prepare to stay until the light changes and magic hour. Drinks at IndoChine afterwards at one of the SuperTree structures afterwards gives you a great eyeful of the Singapore skyline.
