The annual Singapore Food Festival (SFF) returns for its 29th edition from August 24 to September 11, 2022.
For the first time since the pandemic, SFF 2022 offers 70 culinary experiences, including the Festival Village with more than 25 culinary establishments and a special nine-course dinner. Besides, there are a series of workshops, tours, exclusive menus at partner restaurants, virtual offerings, and overseas activities with the theme of Real Foodies Only.
At Bayfront Event Space, Festival Village will gather more than 25 food and beverage brands. They will serve familiar favorites with creative twists, such as Jelebu Dry Laksa’s signature dish topped with Boston lobster and tiger prawns.
The Goodburger will partner with Blue Lotus Eating House to serve the plant-based Golden Chilli Crab Burger. Meanwhile, One Prawn & Co – Michelin-starred Bib Gourmand – will partner with heritage brand Hock Lian Huat to offer a soup of shrimp, mussels, and clams, and ngoh hiang (five-spiced meat rolls).
In addition, top chefs at the Festival Village will present a special 9-course dinner in the virtual classrooms of SFF 2022. Diners’ experiences will be more complete with the Martell Noblige cocktail created by Juan Yi Jun, the head bartender of No Sleep Club.
In addition to food, SFF 2022 will have a workshop for those who love to practice. Visitors can learn the art of spice mixing from 3rd generation owner Jeya Seelan from traditional spice stall Jeya Spices. Cookbook author Annie Xavier and home baking enthusiasts guide you through Thermomix’s tips for preparing delicious meals. There will also be a Marketplace featuring a curated selection of merchandise and an entertainment stage presented by Tiger Beer.
In addition to the Festival Village, various restaurants across the island will offer festival-specific dishes. Celebrating the fusion of cultures in Singapore, Two Men Bagel House will present a bagelwich flavored with Chinese, Indian, and Malay curries. And yet, diners can also enjoy Italian and Malaysian cuisine at Dopo Teatro restaurant and bar with sambal goring pizza.
Longtime restaurant Steeple’s Deli will be partnering with Park Bench Deli to host a one-day pop-up at Steeple’s Deli, featuring a combination of corned beef and pastrami.
