SFF 2015 - A Fresh Taste of Tradition
If there is one thing that Singaporeans are truly passionate about, it is food, especially the delectable range of local delights. And for the past 21 years, the Singapore Food Festival has been an annual celebration of Singaporeans’ love of our local food culture. This year, the festival marks Singapore’s Golden Jubilee with a special edition, themed A Fresh Taste of Tradition. Expect modern spins on Singaporean classics while traditional favourites are elevated to greater heights.
Curated by celebrity chef Justin Quek (of Sky on 57 fame), STREAT brings together the best of Singapore’s hawkers and chefs serving up unique takes of Singapore’s street food.
