PRESENTING SG EATABOUT
SG Eatabout is a food tasting and walking tour business run by a group of Singaporeans who are passionate about introducing good food in Singapore to the world. Singapore Food Tour is helmed by veteran tour guide Leonard Loo, more affectionately known as Leo by travellers and friends.
Millions of travellers and foodies visit Singapore every year. Attempting to taste the Merlion City’s mouth-watering cuisines which number in the hundreds can be an overwhelming experience. Fortunately, we are here to help and bring you to some of Singapore’s favourite eating places – because You Asked For It!
Our guided Chinatown food tour begins right in the heart of Singapore. Chinatown is Singapore’s largest Historical District and once designated living quarters for the Chinese. Today, Chinatown houses some of Singaporeans’ favourite eating places and landmarks of immense cultural significance. Chinatown is also home to Chinatown Complex (Singapore’s largest hawker centre with more than 260 food stalls), locals’ favourite Maxwell Food Centre, Sri Mariamman Temple (Singapore’s oldest Hindu temple) and many other cultured places – all of which will be covered in our SG Eatabout Food and Walking Tour.

A walking food tour is one of the very best investments of time wherever you are and this was one of the best.The tour with Leo was fantastic. I won't tell you what we did because that would spoil the surprise of how this tour opens out to make you appreciate Singapore on so many levels. He also introduced us to food that some Singaporean foodie friends had never even heard of. Top marks Leo. When I return I will do it all over again!
Highly recommend this tour! I've been to a Singapore a few times after this trip and still very much remember everything I learned during my time with Leo (sorry for late review). Not only do you get the taste, but you get to learn about the culture and future of Singapore. A must do for all and great for all ages! :D
Leo who led our tour fulfilled many of our needs. He gave a comprehensive account of the development of Singapore, provided us with a range of foodstuffs typical of the country and answered all our questions thoughtfully and thoroughly. By enabling us to spend time (4hrs +) with a citizen of this amazing country we felt we were more than just mere visitors looking around, we felt we were truly engaging with it. Other reviews give an accurate account of what is provided ie a visit to Singapore Gallery, an incredible marketand various places to eat in or near Chinatown. There were only 4 of us on this tour which gave us ample opportunity to ask our many questions that Leo answered fully. A wonderful experience.
Leo you're amazing! I am so glad that we did this tour at the beginning of our holiday. Leo is so knowledgable and passionate about his country and his enthusiasm is infectious. My husband and I learnt so much about Singapore as it is today and the food was wonderful. Gave us the confidence to tackle the hawker centers and sample some wonderful food during our vacation. Thanks so much Leo!
