Singaporeans are well-known for their voracious love for the gastronomical, with eating ranking way up there as one of Singapore's favorite pastimes. Our passion for food has led to Singapore becoming recognised internationally as one of the world's greatest foodie paradises, with a melting pot of cuisines to sample from.
This year, the Singapore Food Festival (SFF, July 15-27) returns yet again to showcase the best of local cuisine, beloved by locals and foreigners alike!
For the first time in 18 years, the Singapore Food Festival Village promises to be the country's larges F & B event down by the Singapore River. Don't miss this! With more than 60 stalls retailing a combination of local and international delights, you'll be sure to spend a few hours making your tummy very happy indeed.
There will also be live cooking demonstrations by renowned chefs at the Curry and Spice Street, so remember to make your way down! If browsing isn't your cup of tea, there's also over 100 F & B outlets by the River offering tantalising dining deals.
If you've got adventurous tastebuds and dining with a twist sounds like fun, check out the Tiffin Cruise, where spicy dishes served in little tiffin carriers tickle your palette while you cruise down the Singapore River.
Alternatively, take in a bird's eye view of Singapore while you learn to prepare professional-looking canapes with panache at the Singapore Flyer's Spice and Canapes in the Sky. Not culinarily inclined? No worries, you'll get to nibble on expertly-prepared canapes at the end of the lesson anyway!
