10 Of The Best Eats You Must Try From Around the Globe

In the wise words of pioneer writer Virginia Woolf: "One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well."

But which dining experiences was she referring to? What are the best foods? And where do they serve them?

With the help from our friends at SilkAir, we've searched the globe far and wide, and narrowed down 10 of the world's best foods so you can add them to your travel bucket list.

WARNING: You will be drooling by the end of this article.

Chicken Rice, Singapore


Often referred to as the "national dish" of Singapore, this steamed, boiled or roasted chicken is served on a fragrant sticky rice. Dipped into a premium soy sauce with a burst of chili, garlic and pounded ginger, it's little wonder it's considered one of Singapore's best foods. 

Poutine, Canada


When french fries become smothered in cheese and gray - what could possibly go wrong? The saucy, cheesy, potato-ey mix is a Canadian specialty that'll have you fighting over the last cheese curd, everytime.

Masala dosa, India


Get It India. The masala dosa is a crispy rice crepe stuffed with a spiced mashed potato dipped in a light coconut chutney paired with pickles, tomato-lentil sauce and other traditional condiments. Often served at breakfast, it'll keep you on the go while exploring India well into lunch. 

Croissant, France


The humble croissant is served right across the globe, but none do the flaky, buttery pastry better than France. With a smear of raspberry jam for breakfast, there's nothing not to love about this fatty, sweet breakfast treat.

Bunny chow, South Africa


It may look a little sloppy, but this dish is one South Africa's favorite street foods. Bunny chow is a hollowed out half-loaf of bread stuffed with a super spicy curry. You'll find them on most busy street corners and believe us, it's worth the wait.

Pastel de nata, Portugal


Better know in Australia as a 'Portuguese tart' this custard dessert has quite the history. As the tale goes, Portuguese nuns and monks, used the leftover yolks after starching their clothes to make pastries. And this one - became a global sensation. 

Rendang, Indonesia

Slowly simmered with coconut milk and a mixture of lemongrass, garlic, turmeric, galangal, ginger and chilies - this flavorsome beef dish will send your taste buds wild. 

Goi cuon (summer roll), Vietnam


Whether they're filled with pork, shrimp, herbs or rice vermicelli - the Goi cuon, or Summer roll, or rice paper roll, is a snack packed with flavour. Dipped in a slightly sweet Vietnamese sauce laced with ground peanuts you won't stop at one... or four.

Fish 'n' chips, UK


Anything that's been around since the 1860s can't be doing much wrong. With over 150 years to perfect fish n chips, this English favourite is best when it's crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Chili Crab, Singapore


This spicy, sloppy, meaty cuisine is a must-try when visiting Singapore. Stewed with a chilli-tomato gravy with a side of mini mantou buns to soak up the goodness. Oh Singapore, we love you.
