Singapore is one of most exciting cities in Asia for food, with a culture that embraced Chinese, Malay and Indian influences long before it got around to discovering the culinary delights of France, Italy and the rest of Europe.

As a dining destination, Singapore has it all: From the grand dining rooms of luxury hotels through restaurants serving the freshest of seafood to tiny hawker stalls where you balance on a plastic seat to enjoy dishes that pack a dizzying punch.

You are unlikely to see Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un getting to grips with chili crab, but it is extraordinary that a city that can appear so clean and ordered is home to a riot of big dirty flavors and food that demands you get your hands greasy.

We asked leading chefs from New York, Los Angeles, London, Hong Kong and Singapore where they most like to eat. Some picks were obvious—such as the famed No Signboard Seafood—so here are the rest of their selections.
