The Eurasian community is one of Singapore’s smallest, but also one of its earliest. Known for their hybrid traditions of East and West, their Asian and European origins can be traced to some of the region’s oldest colonial settlements, such as Malacca, Penang, Goa, Macau and Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). From the first Portuguese settlers of the early 1510s who travelled to Asia in search of spices, to the arrival of the Dutch in the 1640s and the British in 1790s, embark on a journey through time as we explore the rich history and culture of the diverse Eurasian community in Singapore, and how it came to be.

In this guided tour of the Eurasian Heritage Gallery, you will learn about the travels of these early European immigrants, their contributions to the spice trade in Singapore, and the intermarriages that led to the birth of the Eurasian community as we know it today. End your day on a sweet note with teatime at Quentin’s Eurasian Restaurant, where you’ll be served a slice of traditional sugee cake – a nutty cake made from semolina and almonds and topped with marzipan or icing!
