19 Best Singapore Restaurants To Try Rice Dumplings And Celebrate The Dragon Boat Festival

There's no better time to binge on a variety of rice dumplings in SG then during Dragon Boat Festival 2018.
14 June 2018

Here’s the 101 on the Dragon Boat Festival.

It commemorates the life and death of famed Warring-states period China minister Qu Yuan; people race canoes that look like Chinese dragons; and everyone who joins in the fest feasts on parcels of glutinous rice stuffed with different fillings and wrapped in bamboo leaves.

While classic fillings of roast meats and egg yolk are the traditional, popular ones, there are other fancier versions featuring a host of fine food fillings (think foie gras and truffle) and healthier ingredients (all kinds of nutritious grains), at varied prices and packaged in newfangled ways. Here are 19 of the best restaurants in SG that serve up 49 types of rice dumplings for you to chow down on. Just do so before they are gone by the day of the Dragon Boat Festival (18 June).
