The Singapore Food Festival is early this year. Remember last year’s Singapore Food Festival 2009? It was only 10 days. I was there during the opening ceremonies and I enjoyed every minute of it. This year’s food festival is of much longer duration from July 16 to July 25, 2010. Check the highlights here.
One of the major driving forces in Singapore tourism is their food. Singaporean cuisine ranks number 3 next to shopping and accommodations. Such Multi-Cultural Gastronomic Experience in Singapore. I got a sampling of mind-boggling array of dishes from various ethnic groups like the Indian, Arab, Peranakan, and Chinese. Just like last year, the Clarke Quay Food Street will be one of the focal points of this year’s festival, featuring Chinese cuisine from more than 30 different restaurants.
Last year,the focus was on Peranakan cuisine. This year’s theme is on “Discover the treasures of Singapore Chinese Dialect food”. So , what is cooking with Singapore Food Festival 2010?:
Kicking off the 10-day SFF 2010 on 16th July will be Clarke Quay Food Street at Read Bridge, where the entire length of the bridge will be transformed into a food haven offering sumptuous Chinese delicacies from various famous restaurants.
