Where to get the best of Singapore hawker food without leaving your hotel

Singapore is well-known for being a food heaven: We love our food. Tourists share tales of our dishes on their food diaries. Master Chefs fly from all over the world to taste our hawker fare.

From a simple plate of chicken rice, to the iconic chili crab, Singapore’s got a dish for even the fussiest of epicureans. And when you dine in Singapore, the best way to truly savour the local tastes is through our hawker food.

Instead of going out on a hunt, possibly getting lost in the sea of people swarming this small city, or even ending up with sub-par dishes, Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore brings you quality hawker food.

Here’s a selection of local favourites you can find in the various Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore establishments.
