SINGAPORE, 28 June 2017: The Singapore Food Festival 2017 is back for its 24th edition.
Taking place from 14 to 30 July, locals and visitors alike can look forward to a spread of both traditional and contemporary Singaporean flavours, interpreted through the palates of home-grown culinary heroes.
Themed “Savour Singapore in Every Bite”, the festival will feature up to 20 gastronomic experiences that celebrate heritage and flavours, and honour the people who work passionately to keep local culinary traditions alive.
Singapore Tourism Board director of attractions, dining and retail, Ranita Sundramoorthy said: “Food is tied so closely to our identity of being Singaporean… As the only event in Singapore dedicated to showcasing local food, we wanted to go to the core of what it means to be truly Singaporean.”
“There are also numerous partner events that highlight Singapore’s culture and history, such as heritage food tours, talks and dining experiences.”
STREAT, STB’s anchor event for SFF 2017, is returning for its third year in 2017. This year, the highly-anticipated pop-up restaurant will be helmed by Peranakan chef, Malcolm Lee, of Michelin-starred restaurant Candlenut, and Wild Rocket’s chef Willin Low, who is widely recognised as the founder of Mod-Sin cuisine.
Together, they will present contemporary interpretations of local classics, through a three-course Mod-Sin and modern Peranakan Tok Panjang menu.
In addition, the pair will also work together to curate a selection of nine stalls, each helmed by young “hawkerpreneurs” and chefs, who will present a new spin on quintessentially local dishes.
Some of the participating vendors include New Ubin Seafood, Peranakan Khek and Whampoa Prawn Noodle.
Visitors can also look forward to first-time collaborations at STREAT, such as between popular zichar stall, Keng Eng Kee, and Good Chance Popiah, as well as between contemporary eateries, Taste Affair and The Masses.
