Everyday Street Art + Street Food Walk
#1 Airbnb Experience in Singapore with 200+ five star reviews!!! *Special Chinese New Year edition for Jan 18th foodie walk!* In this trail, we will discover the diversity of food of the main ethnic groups in Singapore. And while any foodie tour can take you on a hawker trail, we’ll let you in on the secrets behind the best stalls. The group size is intentionally kept intimate (no more than 6) as our food stops are small businesses specially handpicked to reflect artisanal techniques - not the ones typically visited by commercial tours. I don't do this everyday as well as I respect the market and do not want to turn it into a tourist trap. More than tasting, you will also get a full palate education on the herbs & spices that are used in the traditional culinary kitchens of this region. In between eating stops, we take a breath to explore some terrific street art and walk through atmospheric alleys. This is the ultimate feast for the stomach and eyes! Notes : - Vegetarian-friendly.Just let me know in advance! - Fully customizable (eg. gluten free, vegan, stroller/wheelchair friendly) private tours in the afternoon, evenings or any time you want. Great for corporates and teambuilding! - Love the environment! I do not use plastic and minimise the waste in this experience. Hollywood was here! Experience what Jada Smith and family ate during their Singapore visit!
