Located in Southeast Asia, Singapore is a city-state consisting of one main island and many islets. Following years of colonisation by the British, Singapore quickly changed from being a developing nation to a developed nation, and today is an international hub for many fields including entertainment, finance, and tourism. Singapore is known for its cultural diversity. It’s the most religiously diverse country in the world and has four official languages. Its diversity has also led to Singapore being known for its amazing food. From hawker centres to high-end restaurants, it’s got it all. But today we’re going to be focusing on something warm and comforting: soups. We’ve compiled some of our favourite soup restaurants in Singapore, so read on and check out the options.
