Singapore Food Festival 2017 (14 July-30 July)
Are you excited by unconventional flavor pairings or innovative food artistry? The more adventurous and creative ones can indulge in modern-Singaporean and arty dining experiences at the Singapore Food Festival.
Open Stoves @ Timbre+
If your parents have ever tsk-tsked at you for playing with your food, you can finally fulfill those dashed childhood dreams at Open Stoves @ Timbre+. The concept behind Open Stoves is to welcome new food adventures, and this year’s edition will involve fusing gastronomic delights with interactive games.
STREAT @ Clifford Square
Prepare your stomach for the master of all food fairs, featuring a whole lineup of stalls specially curated by renowned chefs. As Singapore Food Festival’s signature event, the 2017 edition of STREAT will feature a pop-up restaurant by Chef Malcolm Lee of Michelin-starred restaurant Candlenut, and Chef Willin Low of Wild Rocket, who is widely recognized as the founder of Mod-Sin (modern Singaporean) cuisine.
The 50 Cents Fest! @ Chinatown Food Street
Gone are the days when we could fill our tummies for 50 cents with bowls of noodles, but you can relive those memories if you’re at Chinatown Food Street. It’s not just food you should come here for – the entire Smith Street will turn the old school, with roving giveaways of old school snacks and toys, games like hopscotch, and character mascots from the 1980s.
Hawker Spotlight @ Maxwell Food Centre
Hawker Spotlight celebrates Singapore’s prized food heritage and the long history of a different iconic hawker center each year. Hawker food in Singapore brings Singaporeans together, it is also an awesome showcase for our friends and visitors from overseas to taste our authentic local hawker food delights!
Kueh Appreciation Day @ ToTT Store
The aim of Kueh Appreciation Day is to build awareness and deepen appreciation of our local kueh and kueh producers, including Slow Food (Singapore)’s Heritage Heroes, vendors who continue to produce their kueh by hand according to traditional recipes and techniques.
SG-inspired Bottled Cocktails – Throughout SFF 2017
Want a hip souvenir to take home? Pick out a homemade cocktail. Homegrown brand Sunday Punch has been bottling its own cocktails for close to three years now, and it’s launching two new drinks inspired by the flavors of Singapore. The gin-based East Side pays homage to laksa (Peranakan noodle soup), while Kopi B puts a spin on the classic Boulevardier.
