Savour a curation of local flavours at FOODS restaurant for one week. Commonly referred to as one of Singapore’s quintessential delicacies, Chilli Crabs are stir-fried in a robust flavour, tangy and sweet chilli sauce, served with deep-fried mantou, which are ideal for scooping up every single drop of gravy on the plate. Despite its name, chili crab is not all that spicy. Bak Kut Teh, tender pork ribs are simmered in an aromatic herbal broth to make a flavourful soup, loved by its fans for its distinct herbal aroma. Katong Laksa is known as one of “The World’s Best Spicy Foods,” a fragrant coconut curry noodle dish with ingredients that epitome the myriad cultures of Chinese and Malay. Other specialties include Singaporean all-time favourite, Hainanese Chicken Rice. Premium Lamb Rendang or Lamb Tandoori is perfectly spiced, succulent and tender. Crunchy Fruit Rojak with the freshest tropical fruits. Be overwhelmed by the aroma of Singapore’s big head prawn and crayfish noodle. The sweetness of the prawn stock gives the dish a rich flavour.
Teh Tarik, a hot milk tea beverage. Translated as “pulled tea,” it has a smooth texture with a frothy cap, the mixture is poured back and forth repeatedly between two vessels from a height, giving it a thick frothy top. This process cools the tea to optimal drinking temperatures, and helps to thoroughly mix the tea with the condensed milk. It is also done to give the tea a better flavour.
“Shiok is a Singlish term to express sheer pleasure and happiness. Singaporeans commonly use this expression to describe extreme satisfaction.” Lincoln Lim, Executive Sous Chef of The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou, a Singaporean living in Guangzhou says. “Singapore is a tiny country with a big appetite. In Singapore, food is viewed as crucial to national identity and a unifying cultural thread.The food festival is a stellar opportunity to showcase Singapore’s tapestry of diverse cultures.
