Eating is one of the highlights of a visit to Singapore there's lots of variety of delicious, reasonably priced dishes.
Below is just a selection of the many options.

There are many supermarkets with excellent selections of imported & prepared foods, sushi etc. Great for picnics.

Hawker centers
A great Singaporean tradition you can find throughout the city. These centers are packed with a variety of food stalls with communal seating areas.
The food is hygienic, tasty and cheap, often less than
S$3. Some are in the open air, some cramped into basements of building complexes or the 1st F of Residential Housing Complexes.
All of the shopping centers have food courts - a sanitized version of hawker centers.
