Overview

Singapore and Penang have a lot in common both in culinary and cultural terms. For centuries they have been at a crossroads of ancient trade, and immigration, giving them a strong multicultural personality.

Singapore & Penang Street Foodshows the authentic taste of delicious street food in Malaysia and how the street-food scene in Singapore has become more food court nowadays. Regulated out of existence years ago, street food vendors moved into hawker centers where even the most delicate stomachs have the opportunity to partake. Strict safety and hygiene regulations make Singapore's hawker food some of the safest street food around, keeping high standards of tastiness and authenticity.

Beside five different Chinese cuisines, Singapore also offers Indian, Malaysian, Indonesian and Thai street-food dishes. In Penang you will find similar dishes but with a different touch, a different interpretation. The range of regional varieties is endless.
