If people overseas cannot travel to Singapore, then Singapore will bring itself, in bits and pieces, overseas.

On June 29, VisitSingapore shared on its Facebook page about the launch of a Singapore Gourmet Trip series by South Korean convenience store chain CU.

The series consists of three items: Chilli Crab Burger, Chilli Crab & Prawn Rice Bowl, and Singapore Kaya Toast.

For Singaporeans stuck in South Korea who are struggling to find a taste of home, they are in luck.
