According to my personal experience, I would say these following cities in Asia have good food:

Singapore: There are so many other Asian cuisines could be found in Singapore, not just the three main cuisines (Chinese, Indian, Malay). The Indian food there was amazing, I love Thosai and Prata the most, Little India is one of my favorite place in Singapore for food. There are many good Chinese dishes could be found at the restaurants and hawker centers (I love the Teochew style dishes there especially), Chinatown and Orchard are my favorite places for Chinese food because Chinatown has good hawker centers while Orchard has many good Chinese restaurants. Malay food is also good, although I like Indonesian food better.

Kuala Lumpur: Just like Singapore, but cheaper and more affordable.

Shenzhen: I love the claypot rice and roasted pigeon there the most.

Tokyo: Very high quality food and clean, love the food at the supermarkets as well.

Bangkok: I love the Teochew style food there, the best Suckling Pig that I have eaten was at Bangkok. Very good street food as well.

Hong Kong: The dim sum there wasn't that good (the Dim Sum at here where I live, Surabaya is better) but I love the roasted meat (duck, goose, pork) and the seafood there. Hong Kong also has many good Chinese food restaurants. Cantonese style desserts are also worth to try.

Surabaya: Here at where I live, Surabaya the food is also pretty good. I could find many good restaurants and the local food here is pretty good (especially the meatball soup and tofu dishes).

I was treated to Singaporean food twice over the last 2 years while vacationing in The Philippines. I savored and loved everything which was served. Unbelievable blend of textures and flavors.

I really like Phuket, but I know its cuisine isn't the finest.

Can confirm. Just spent almost 3 weeks there. As someone who tries to maintain a low carb diet, I felt like a diabetic in Willy Wonka's factory.

You'd pretty much walk by a bakery every 15 steps.
One of the most famous eateries... Ding tai fung. Known for their soup dumplings. But also has some great fried rice, pot stickers, and beef noodle soup.
and of course, noodles and rice are staple dishes in general.
Hit a food court in a department store - it's either beef noodle soup, pork chop on rice/noodle, or various stuffed buns. Not to mention that to get to the food court, you'll be walking by isles of bakery goods (mochi, breads, cakes, etc.).

Of course, you also have all the fried foods. Hit those night markets, and its fried squid, fried chicken patties, stinky tofu, etc.

Friggin gained 10 pounds there. It was a pleasure doing it though... ;-). Albeit I probably would have gained more weight if it wasn't 95 degrees and 70% humidity the entire time (the 'real feel' was pretty much 115 every day). I never knew you could sweat while showering...

Hahaha you had me cracked at Willy Wonka's.

Personally I lost a ton of weight by leaving Taiwan and living in the land of crap food, aka Holland, for a year. I hope I won't gain all back when I get back home lol.

Anyways I'm glad that you enjoyed your trip there.

I couldn't stop stuffing my face when I lived in Hong Kong.

Vietnam was definitely easiest on the wallet, though I could eat Bun Bo Hue 3 times a day and never get tired of it (and pay like $10 USD for all 3 meals).

Oddly enough, I craved American-style Chinese food the most when I was living in Shenzhen. I guess my palate had just gotten used to Kung Pao Chicken or General Tso's, which don't really exist in China.

Now that I'm living in Bali and surf all the time, I'm back in shape. I stick to the cheaper Balinese meals out here but they don't have the soul-warming kind of effect that Hong Kong food did lol
