Foodies relished their fill of some of Singapore’s best-loved dishes at the third edition of The MICHELIN Guide Street Food Festival, which was held from 22 to 24 February. Held at The Coliseum at Resorts World Sentosa, the epicurean event gathered 15 dining establishments that are recognised in The MICHELIN Guide Singapore 2018 selection.
More than 4,000 diners tucked into a mouth-watering smorgasbord of cuisines including Australian, Spanish, Japanese, Indian, Chinese and Singaporean. Out of the 15 stalls, 10 of them made their debut at the annual festival, which assembles some of Singapore’s most popular eateries under one roof.
The line-up for this year's edition included one-Michelin-starred modern Australian barbecue restaurant Burnt Ends which sparked long queues for its hot-sellers like pulled pork shoulder sanger and steak frites, and two-Michelin-starred Sichuan restaurant Shisen Hanten, which dished out its signature Chen’s Mapo Doufu with Hokkaido rice. Michelin Plate recipients OLA Cocina del Mar, a contemporary Spanish restaurant, offered tomato gazpacho with raspberry vinegar; paella with iberico pork, and anticuchos (Peruvian marinated chicken skewers), while Indian restaurant Rang Mahal spiced things up with its chicken tikka masala and naan.
Hawker food also had a strong showing. Newcomers to the festival include Ji Ji Wanton Noodle and Tai Wah Pork Noodle, both in Hong Lim Food Centre, Rolina Traditional Hainanese Curry Puff in Tanjong Pagar Food Centre, and Pondok Makan Indonesia in Albert Centre Market & Food Centre.
Besides tucking into delights from MICHELIN Guide-recognised eateries, visitors also sipped on invigorating thirst-quenchers and fine water from LiHO TEA, Provenance Distributions, evian and Badoit, and nibbled on snacks from The Golden Duck Co. For desserts, they cooled down with ice-cream from Tsujiri, sweet treats from Churros Republic and sink their teeth into macarons from Macarons.sg.
