This year’s Singapore Food Festival (SFF) – the country’s only event dedicated to local cuisine and local talent – will be a three-week-long celebration of the city-state’s multicultural heritage.
Held from July 12-28, 2019, the 26th edition of the festival will bring 20 event partners together to offer myriad dining concepts and gastronomic experiences throughout the country.
SFF will kick off with STREAT on July 12 and 13 at The Promontory @ Marina Bay, offering a range of traditional hawker fare and mod-sin interpretations of the country’s street food from 12 establishments, e.g. Salted & Hung’s chicken rice kueh pie tee. To add to the festive atmosphere, diners will be entertained by local music acts like Charlie Lim and Glen Wee.
STREAT visitors can also participate in culinary workshops and masterclasses conducted by local culinary talents such as Sujatha Asokan from Botanico.
This year, bubble tea brand LiHo Tea, convenience store 7-Eleven and Glico, which produces the Pocky snack, will be part of the SFF for the first time, with their products on offer during the festival and across the island.
For instance, LiHo Tea will combine avocado and coffee to create the Avocado Kopi, available for purchase at selected outlets. 7-Eleven has also launched three exclusive Japanese-Singaporean snacks such as chicken satay onigiri, while Pocky has created a limited edition flavour – the first-ever – featuring the Singaporean breakfast of kaya and coffee.
All SFF activities can be booked through Klook, the official booking partner for the year.
