No Singaporean foodie list will be complete without its iconic fruit – the durian.

7. Singapore Breakfast Tea

Smooth and sweet, this tea is a blend of green and black tea, with vanilla and rare spices. You can buy a box from TWG with 15 sachets, or you can buy the loose leaf variant that has luxe European packaging, but proudly showcases a golden lion – which is apt since Singapore is known as The Lion City.

8. Sambal

This well-loved condiment is usually served with Nasi Lemak, Mee Goreng, Nasi Goreng, and Roti Canai. Glory Food’s Nonya Sambal is a paste that’s made from a variety of chilies, garlic, and onions. Some variations have anchovies or shrimp paste added in.

Price: S$2.18 (250 g)

9. Bak kwa

Traditionally eaten during Chinese New Year, Bakkwa is dried meat that’s similar to jerky. Usually made with pork, the meat is grilled over charcoal for an added smokey flavor. Bakkwa also comes in chicken, mutton, beef, and vegetarian variants. Bee Cheng Hiang apparently sells the best vacuum-packed Bakkwa that you can give to family and friends.

Price: S$21 to S$44
Where to Buy: Bee Cheng Hiang outlets and beechenghiang
10. Singapore Sling

Created in the 1930s, the Singapore Sling is the Lion City’s national drink that is enjoyed both locally and internationally. Originally, the Singapore Sling is made with gin, orange juice, pineapple juice, cherry brandy, and lime juice. Nowadays, there are several recipes and variants – but even then, you no longer have to head over to Raffle Hotel’s Long Bar to enjoy this drink as it is now available bottled.

Price: S$15 to S$30
Where to Buy: Drink shops and supermarkets islandwide, Raffle’s Hotel Long Bar.
