Our endless quest for the best Singaporean dishes is very, very well recorded. But what isn't always so well recorded is the food itself.
All too often people are happy to just pull out their smartphone to snap their bowl of laksa or plate of chicken rice. Trouble is they don't always make the most appealing images when uploaded to Facebook or Instagram.
Poor lighting, blurry images and a lack of focus can all turn your delicious-looking dish into an unappetizing mess.
But we think our country's most famous dishes deserve more than that, the same kind of consideration lavished on them by the men and women who prepare these tasty treats. To demonstrate our point we joined forces with Dr Leslie Tay, the man behind popular food blog ieatishootipost.sg and headed off on a foodie odyssey.
Our mission? To discover some of the lesser known, most original and most delicious dishes in Singapore and show you how, with some simple tips and the right kit you can truly capture them in all their gastronomic glory.
We selected five different venues serving five classic Singaporean dishes and then showed you how best to photograph them with five useful photography tips.
