Singapore, 28 June 2016 – The 2016 edition of the annual Singapore Food Festival (SFF) will take place from 15 to 31 July, and features a record line-up of 18 gastronomic experiences. Themed “Savour the Past, Taste the Future”, this year’s Festival will take intrepid foodies on a culinary journey that spans the ages. From the nostalgia of dining along a shophouse-lined street to the contemporary experience of an outdoor barbeque in a gastro-park, guests are invited to tantalise their taste buds with some of the nation’s best dishes whipped up by our top culinary talents.
 
Ms Ranita Sundra, Director of Attractions, Dining and Retail, Singapore Tourism Board, said, “The Singapore Food Festival has been carrying the torch for Singapore’s vibrant food legacy since 1994. After 23 years, it is still the only food festival in Singapore to feature local flavours and showcase the inventive spirit of our ever-evolving food scene. This year, Singaporeans and visitors are in for a treat with a record 18 Singapore Food Festival experiences on offer. Young and old alike will be able to savour Singapore’s food heritage and discover modern Singaporean cuisine by being a part of the various partner events and initiatives.”
 
STREAT Signature Event
 
The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) first introduced STREAT in 2015 as the anchor SFF event to celebrate Singapore food and culinary talents. For 2016, it will feature a pop-up restaurant and a curated medley of Singapore F&B establishments.
 
STREAT 2016’s pop-up restaurant is helmed by international celebrity chef Susur Lee, who played a key role in developing the concept of contemporary Chinese cuisine following his appointment as TungLok Group’s Group Culinary Consultant in 1997. He is joined by Senior Executive Chef Ken Ling of Tunglok Heen and Chef-Owner Han Liguang of Restaurant Labyrinth. The three chefs will reinterpret and create new expressions of Singapore’s iconic street food, presented in an exclusive six-hands dinner menu. A stellar selection of hawkers and chefs will also helm stalls alongside the pop-up restaurant.
