Riesling a perfect match for Singapore Kitchen!
As a veteran observer of Singapore’s economic and social development, (and a wine merchant and wine publisher by vocation),…I have long been observing the development of the wine and gastronomy scene in Singapore (on perhaps my 12th visit to Singapore but who is counting ) I have been constantly amazed at the “explosion of gastronomy and culinary delights” that have occurred here …in this latest developmental wave,..and I amazed by the sheer diversity and quality of food available! If this is not the food capital of the world,..I don’t know what is?
The latest wave has seen the arrival of the French and Italians,…with many many newly opened wine bars and restaurants manned by enthusiastic young chefs and sommeliers,..and other wine and food professionals ,.. intent on carving out a business niche for themselves,..and succeeding in a dynamic Singaporean economy as opposed to the stagnant European market that many have escaped.
Modern French,. ITALIAN,.,Swiss, Tapas, many new French Bakeries and,..and even numerous new coffee shops and franchises are in evidence. Even coffee is taking off,..although local Koppeeis still available for 95 cents,… not surprising when you consider that many Singaporeans have exposure to coffee culture whilst studying in Australia or traveling.
