Where to eat?
The food scene is broadly divided in two options- the kopitiam and hawker stalls and the restaurants and food chains.
Kopitiam and hawker stalls-
A kopitiam, as Google would say, is an open air coffee house, but this term can be expanded to include the stalls that serve different foods and beverages along with the coffee. A hawker centre is just an elaborate version of the kopitiam with much more stalls and much more varieties of food to choose from.
For your budget eating needs, any hawker centre is your go to place. A full meal here can range from 2.5 SGD to 7 or 8 SGD depending on what all you order. And this same can cost you around 10 to 15 SGD at the food courts in most malls in Singapore.
The cuisines, I noticed at most hawker centres, were predominantly Southeast Asian. So strap in and enjoy that fishball noodle, or chicken rice, or roast duck, or the various shrimp and fish preparations! Most stalls have the various meat preparations on display, so you just have to walk up to them, order rice and noodle or soup and point out the different meats that you want to go with. Simple enough.
Restaurants and food chains-
These are just your run of the mill usual restaurants and there's nothing great to be said about them, except for the fact that they are pricier than the hawker centres. And there's a whole range of prices for that too which ranged from literally 30 SGD to almost a 100 SGD for two, considering the fact we picked the budget options. But there are restaurants here more costlier than these. And of course you won't miss your favourite food chains like McDonald's or KFC or Starbucks here. They are aplenty. A meal here would set you back around 10 SGD approximately. (Starbucks is definitely pricier than back in India)
