While Mexican food is within relatively easy reach in Singapore, go further down South and try some Costa Rican food the next time you’re at Lau Pa Sat or Amoy Street Market. Yup, you can get an authentic array of dishes from the Central American country right in the middle of our favourite food haunts.

Be introduced to the chalupa, casado (a popular Costa Rican rice meal), picadillo de ayote, beef taco bowl and a special dish of fried rice with seafood (arroz con marisco) at an affordable price range.

If you’ve always wanted to go on an Inca Trail, you can start with one right here in Singapore. But instead of hiking, you will be dining your way through the best flavours that Peru has to offer in a social and familial setting.

Start with a ceviche (seafood dish) and causa (classic Peruvian potato-based starter) along with anticuchos (inspired by Peruvian street food) before digging into a plato principal (a choice of platters to share).
