4 must try street foods in Singapore

Whether you’re a tourist or a native, going to Singapore is not complete if you don’t try the hawker food there. Unlike most countries, the “must-do” activity here is to eat. Here’s a short guide on what are the foods that you must try when in Singapore.   Satay A famous hawker food in Singapore that’s easy to find.
