Time Out says

The Singapore Food Festival (SFF) has returned for its 29th edition, running now till September 11. Themed Real Foodies Only, visitors can treat themselves to over 70 culinary delights ranging from workshops to tours, while also strolling through a highly-anticipated food village. Foodies can now once again immerse themselves in the richness and creativity of the city’s food culture and talents at this festival.

Here’s what to look forward to at this year’s Singapore Food Festival. 

Festival Village

Held at Bayfront Event space, the festival village plays host to specially-curated dishes from over 25 culinary and beverage brands. Delicacies include Jelebu Dry Laksa topped with Boston lobster and tiger prawns, Featherblade’s beef rendang sliders, plant-based Golden Chilli Crab burgers by Blue Lotus Eating House and The Goodburger’s foodtruck. Entry fee on weekdays will set you back for $15, and $20 on weekends. 

There’s also a special nine-course dinner curated by chefs featured in the festival’s virtual masterclasses. Diners can enjoy a Martell Noblige cocktail created by the head bartender of No Sleep Club, Juan Yi Jun. Tickets for the dinner range from $128 to $178, inclusive of entry fees. They can be purchased from the Singapore Food Festival’s website.          

Virtual masterclasses by acclaimed chefs

A series of nine free-to-view masterclasses is available virtually during the festival. This includes an overseas collaboration between Asia’s Best Pastry Chef 2022 winner Maira Yeo from two-Michelin star Cloudstreet and Chef Justin Lee of JL Dessert Bar in Seoul. Their masterclass revolves around the Tropical Konggaru Tart that's made with soybeans. Chef Li Guang of Singapore’s Labyrinth will also showcase his contemporary spin on local favourite Bak Kut Teh, which features pepper-crusted pork cheek. The full list of masterclasses from the different chefs can be found here.

Tours and workshops

Various tours and workshops are also available for those interested to participate. Go on a behind-the-scenes tour of Brass Lion Distillery and learn about the botanicals in their Singapore Dry Gin or immerse yourself in a theatrical workshop by Oh!Stories, which teaches participants how to make comfort food of the 60s through captivating stories by grandfathers and grandmothers. Participants can also learn the art of mixing spices from Jeya Seelan, the third generation owner of spice stall Jeya Spices. 

Exclusive dishes

As part of the event, restaurants islandwide will also be serving up festival-exclusive dishes. Two Man Bagel House has created a bagelwich packed with different curry flavours while veteran deli establishment Steeple's Deli will also hold a one-day pop up in collaboration with new-school Park Bench Deli, offering sandwiches that incorporate the former’s corned beef and the latter’s pastrami.
