I've seen the inspection notices, but I was thinking of it more from a civil liberties standpoint than an "ability to serve unsanitary food" standpoint. In other words: how practical is it for an Everyperson to own/operate a restaurant?

I haven't personally owned restaurants in both SG and USA, but what I understand is it is way easier in SG in terms of red tape, capital, insurance etc. I think that's a very valid criticism.

In my experience the food in Singapore is fantastic. Especially in the foods halls.

The food in America is diabolical. The amount of processed food with too much salt, sugar and fat makes you ill after a while.

For the difference in health outcomes I’d start to look here. Especially as poor people have very little healthy options in the states.
