Singapore Food Festival 2019
12 July - 28 July
The annual Singapore Food Festival (SFF) returns this July with a refreshed line-up of events and activities that celebrate the richness of local Singaporean flavours. Kick-starting this festival is STREAT, which offers a range of traditional hawker fare and exciting mod-sin interpretations of Singapore street food from 12 establishments that showcase the breadth and depth of Singapore’s flavour tapestry. To add to the festive atmosphere, diners will be entertained by popular local music acts like Charlie Lim and Glen Wee. STREAT-goers can also participate in culinary workshops and masterclasses conducted by Singapore’s culinary talents.
This year, we celebrate the diversity of Singapore’s food culture in the 26th edition of SFF, with more than 20 activities and events. If that’s all a little too much to digest, here is a list of 8 must-tries that you can cover within a day at the Singapore Food Festival:
