Singapore is an island city-state off the southern tip of Malaysia and is one of the most popular travel destinations in Southeast Asia. The multicultural city is thriving with night life, natural wonders, and of course, a culinary scene that is off the charts. Contrary to what 2018’s Crazy Rich Asians might have you think, there is more to Singapore than the glitz and glamour of wealthy classes. In fact, many Singaporeans will have you know that their city is much more accessible than it seems, but it does have its quirks! Here are some things you can only find in Singapore.

If you ask for an ice cream sandwich in Singapore, you’d be surprised to have this handed to you. Singapore ice cream sandwiches are sold by street vendors who slice individual portions from a block of ice cream and then wrap it in a slice of bread.

The ice cream comes in various flavors from coffee and strawberry to sweet corn and durian. While some vendors use plain white bread, others have multicolored slices that are flavored with pandan leaf extract.
