Singapore Food

Singapore is known for its food – from local Michelin star hawker fare to food in celebrated restaurants said to be “worth taking a plane ride for” by the New York Times. The number of Singapore restaurants, cafes and food stalls is staggering and new places for food & beverages sprout up by the week. Yet you commonly hear in Singapore –  What to Eat?  Where to eat?  In this independent Singapore food blog The Ordinary Patrons share their discoveries with local foodies and visitors who may be asking those very questions.



Read our latest articles about eateries ordinary patrons have visited recently. The Ordinary Patrons write regularly about Singapore restaurants, cafes and other food and beverage establishments we visit – giving our frank opinion about the food, service and atmosphere of the place and whether they think the prices give good value. We visit an eatery just as the average customers do and pay for our own meals. This Singapore food blog covers neighbourhood cafes as well as hip swanky restaurants, simple local Singapore food and also exotic cuisines from all over the world. The Ordinary Patrons blog may give a glimpse of where ordinary locals eat in Singapore. Browsing our Singapore food blog may help you decide what to eat and where to eat.
