In Singapore, there is this life and locals and restaurants and then big casinos and an array of chefs, and even Miami is almost close to Vegas when it comes to an amazing presentation of chefs. But they don’t have these massive hotels that have become their own culinary villages.

The Dancing Crab
Singapore is famous for its chilli crab and this place does it really well. You walk in, grab a seat and wear a bib (which they do provide, and which you'll definitely need) and dig in to literally a pile of seafood on the table. Bring your mates... This is a good time with friends.

The last time I was back in Singapore for a show a friend of mine  HYPERLINK ""Heue took me here and I understood why... It's got a stunning interior with beautiful food in a quaint spot. A good refuge from the Singaporean heat as well, tucked away amidst the busyness of the city.

I make a point to pay this cafe a visit every time I'm back. On top of having quality coffee and food, it's also a playground for caffeine aficionados. I love its layout too, with it having a “coffee bar” concept. Think a pub except replace beer taps with espresso machines.
