Singapore has a strong restaurant and street food culture and our sunny climate (except for when it's monsoon season) makes dining outdoors make sense. Your first thoughts related to outdoor restaurants probably involve a combination of hot and humid, but most of these restaurants are sheltered and well-ventilated. While not everyone's cup of tea, outdoor restaurants in Singapore can offer a unique experience.
If dining in a classic air-conditioned room is getting a little too boring for you, then why not try bringing some company for some good food outdoors? Here at GET.com we've come up 10 outdoor restaurants in Singapore you can go to that not only look good but serve good food too.
10 outdoor restaurants with amazing food in Singapore
1. Open Farm Community
Dining outdoors couldn't get any fresher than this. Imagine sitting outside next to vegetable patches and knowing that that's exactly where your food came from. Open Farm Community is an initiative that spearheads local farming. Trust me when I say you're in for quite the experience when you head there.
