Located in chilled-out Changi Village, this is the most Malay of Singapore's food centres, with locals heading here for one thing: the nasi lemak (fragrant coconut rice topped with fried chicken or fish, fried anchovies and sambal chilli). While food bloggers never cease arguing about which stall does it best, the original International Nasi Lemak gets the most loving.

End on a sweet note at Mei Xiang Goreng Pisang, famed for its beautifully crisp, golden banana fritters.
