Not everyone uses chopsticks
Although Chinese forms the majority in Singapore, not everyone uses chopsticks to eat. In fact, Malays and Indians may use their hands. But no, they don't use their hands to eat noodles.
We don't eat chilli crab often
Mainly because crabs are expensive. Although a lot of people (including every Korean celebrity who comes here) raves about the chilli crab, it's not a street food and even if you do find it at a hawker centre (i.e., Newton Food Centre), be warned that the dish doesn't come cheap.
But we do eat chicken rice quite regularly
In fact, you can expect a queue at chicken rice stalls in most hawker centres. Just be careful not to end up getting fried rice instead.
Halal foods is more than Malay food and kebab
It's pretty easy to find halal food in Singapore, and we're not just talking about nasi padang and kebab. There are halal Korean food, Japanese cuisine and even dim sum in Singapore!
We eat fried bee hoon for breakfast
Isn't it heavy, you might ask. The answer is yes. But we still eat it anyway because breakfast is important. (And also because it's very delicious).
There are many types of coffee
Kopi siew dai (less sweet), kopi gao (strong)… However you want your coffee to be, consider it done. Yes, even mixed with tea (yuan yang).
We eat rice for (almost) every meal
This is more an Asian thing than a Singaporean thing, but we can’t live without rice.
There are different kinds of curry
Yes, we have Indian curry, Hainanese curry… even the curry at the Malay food stall tastes different!
And different kinds of rojak
There’s the normal rojak and there’s the Indian rojak, which is equally delish. Not a fan of either? Eat char kway with… rojak sauce.
We chope with tissue paper
Or umbrella. Or anything you have that doesn’t look like litter. Which means that flyer you got downstairs cannot lah.
