The Singapore Food Festival 2011 - Local Delights and More!

Offtopic: We are now on Twitter, so Follow Us on Twitter to get first-hand updates whenever we ... update!

It's time for the Singapore Food Festival 2011! This annual fest is, according to the website, the nation's biggest culinary event of the year. There are a variety of activities throughout the week but the main draw is probably the Food Festival village at Boat Quay / Clarke Quay.

So anyways, the Village is set up quite like a pasar malam, and features a pretty large number of stalls with collections of mostly local fare.

Unfortunately we don't have bottomless stomachs, so we're only able to sample a few dishes - firstly, the kong bak pau - a chinese mantau-style bun with a slab of fatty kou yuk. Pretty good!

Satay! Only ordinary.

We're also intrigued by a small stall serving chicken skewers with an Indian twist.

There's also a Singaporean Chili crab stall, but we don't really think that the surroundings are particularly suitable for digging into crab, so we try the you tiao instead - it's you tiao stuffed with fish cake and deep fried.

In keeping with the whole pasar malam vibe, there are stalls selling food-related ingredients like this one selling indian curries and spices.

Overall, pretty close to a pasar malam experience - you get to sample lots of different types of food - and since each portion is individually not very substantial, the prices add on pretty quickly too.

The Singapore Food Festival 2011 runs until 24th July, so you've got another week to head on over to the Boat Quay / Clarke Quay area to get your 'eat' on!
