The advice to come with an empty stomach has never been so relevant and apt. Even starving the night before couldn't prepare me for the gastronomical onslaught (and im a big eater). Food is really good and varied, our guide Jackie is knowledgeable and takes care of us very well. Content is relevant and educational, and this makes a Uniquely Singapore experience. Strongly recommend for foodies! Bagus!
