I'd be careful in Singapore...my parents lived there for several yeasr (this was prior to my diagnosis) and 'stall food' was hugely popular but it almost always contained soy sauce (and I'm pretty sure it wasn't gluten-free soy sauce considering the vast amounts used!) I think you'll do better to stick to the nicer restaurants but you probably want to phone ahead to see if they can accomodate you...I haven't been back in several years so perhaps things have changed plus S'pore is a pretty cosmopolitan place so hopefully the basic knowledge is there...just don't assume.

Hi. I just moved to Singapore in January (2013) and was recently diagnosed with gluten-intolerance. So far, I've found it tricky to eat out here at the local stalls (hawker centers). Everything has soy sauce in it and it's not gluten free. Other dishes such as Indian foods typically have deep fried dishes mixed in with the other stuff. I've had better success eating out in very high end places, but be prepared to spend a serious amount of money on your meal. Most of the time, I just cook at home. There are plenty of gluten-free products available from local supermarkets and organic stores. If you need some recommendations, let me know.
