Food is a universal common language that is able to connect people from all over the world together, all for the sake for the love of delicious food. In Singapore, we Singaporeans love to eat, from our very own local hawker food delights to international cuisines, there is something to try, taste and enjoy for everybody, from the locals to our international visitors.
The Singapore Food Festival 2016, from 15th July to 31st July, is a major event celebrating the diverse tastes and Singapore’s cuisine from the past and into the future. There a number of different food theme events taking place during Singapore Food Festival 2016 and one of the food events that strikes a deep chord inside me is “Hawker Spotlight”.
Hawker Spotlight 2016 is hosted at East Coast Lagoon Food Village. City Gas, Singapore’s town gas and natural gas utilities provider, is collaborating with Singapore Tourism Board to host Hawker Spotlight 2016. Hawker Spotlight celebrates Singapore’s prized food heritage and the long history of a different iconic hawker centre each year.Hawker food in Singapore brings Singaporeans together, it is also an awesome showcase for our friends and visitors from overseas to taste our authentic local hawker food delights!
During the media tour of Singapore Food Festival 2016 Hawker Spotlight, we were led by food connoisseur, Mr Moses Lim (I remember him fondly as a local comedian / tv actor!).
