The Singapore Food Festival returns this year with more epicurean experiences, exciting events and of course, excellent eats. Here are some things to check out at the festival, taking place across various venues in Singapore from 14 to 30 July 2017.

Want to level up your favourite kuehs (bite-sized snacks)? Confectioner Rainbow Lapis is teaming up with three local establishments to bring you a series of Kueh Pairing Workshops. Immerse yourself in a hands-on kueh-making workshop led by the pros, and learn how to pair the desserts with artisan teas, bespoke cocktails or speciality coffees. Each workshop will cover different interests, from making tea-infused kueh to mixing cocktails inspired by kuehs and local flavours.

29 July from 12pm – 11pm; 30 July from 11am – 11pm | Chinatown Food Street, Smith Street, Chinatown, Singapore 058938 | Free Admission
Remember when a bowl of mee pok only cost 50 cents? Chinatown Food Street is paying homage to the good old (and cheap) days with The 50 Cents Fest, where there will be plenty of local eats going for as little as 50 cents a pop (or in 50-cent denominations). The two-day festival will also feature a set-up reminiscent of 1980’s Singapore, so you can expect to see old-school hawkers, pop-up mama shops, classic 80’s games and even live Xinyao performances.
