Singapore Food Festival 2010


For Singapore food lovers, this is the annual event you should not miss.  This year’s theme highlights dishes from the main Chinese dialect groups in Singapore and you could find some “extinct” olden days’ dishes not commonly found anywhere else in Singapore.  During this event, you could also discover how Chinese food has evolved since it was first brought to Singapore by immigrants.
