Food Adventures

If you want to truly understand the Singaporean culture and psyche, there’s no better way than to take a food tour.

You’ll be walking through our bustling hawker centres, hidden alleyways, and vibrant neighbourhoods with our passionate guides. From the intangible UNESCO world heritage of our hawker stores, to speakeasies to Michelin-star restaurants, get to experience the diverse range of culinary offerings this vibrant city has to offer.

On our tours you will be savouring the iconic Hainanese chicken rice, navigating a prata with your fingers, indulging in a steaming bowl of laksa, all the while tasting your way through Singapore’s rich culinary history and discover the unique blend of Malay, Chinese, Indian, and Western influences.

If you are up for it, join us on one of our Ugly Food Tours where we will show you some of the most unique neighbourhoods that are well off the tourist path.

But it’s not just about the food. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet local hawkers heroes and chefs, learn about the cultural significance of certain dishes, and gain insight into the daily life and traditions of Singaporeans.

So come along and join us on a food tour of Singapore. It’s the ultimate way to explore this vibrant city.

Bon appetit!

Not Another Tiong Bahru Tour

From$50

Get a snapshot of Singapore’s development through this beautiful, charming and often-misunderstood “hipster” enclave.

Click here to book a chic walk through Tiong Bahru

The original hipster enclave in Singapore!

The distinctive architecture of the district houses old school patisseries beside french bakeries, old dressmakers alongside chic indie boutiques. There is also so much history in the area. Starting from the houses built during the colonial era, to the fires that used to ravage the area, to the gentrified neighbourhood it is today. We think that Tiong Bahru today contains snapshots of Singapore through our various phases of development.

Whis-Kueh, A Spirited Local Tasting Experience

From$120

We will be diving into the rich history and flavors of traditional kueh (or bite-sized desserts) from different culture influences of Singapore.

But the highlight of the tour is definitely the kueh and whisky pairing at the end. As a lovers of both food and spirits, we can attest to the incredible flavors that can be achieved when the two are combined. The complex, smoky notes of the whisky perfectly complement the sweet and delicate flavors of the kueh, creating a truly unique and indulgent experience.

This Experience is our love letter to all things Kueh!

Kueh is very much a part of common SouthEast Asian “culture vocabulary”. Most of us would have memories munching on the pretty and delicious treats. Some of us would have seen them offered up for prayers and rituals during festivals. The lucky few amongst us would remember sitting around a table with family members hand-shaping the intricate and delicate shapes together.

In this experience, we will introduce you to some of our favourite kuehs, and show you the evolution of these tasty treats over the years. We will also attempt the unusual pairing of kuehs with spirits from one of the independent bottlers in Singapore.

This experience is a jointly brought to you by Indie Singapore, Furama City Centre and Interco-MLE.
