Singapore Food Festival 2012 @ Waterfront Promenade, Marina Bay

This year's Singapore Food Festival 2012 kicked off last Friday, 13 July 2012 at the Waterfront Promenade, Marina Bay(map) instead of at the Clarke Quay Read Bridge like the previous years. With a larger space at the new venue, this is also the first time Singapore Food Festival (SFF) Village extended its' operation hours from 11.00am to 11.30pm daily from 13 - 22 July 2012, offering a total of 120 hours of glorious food.

During the ten days (13 July to 22 July) of glorious seafood, you will be able to sample delicious dishes from about 50 vendors under one roof at the SFF Food Village. And this year with more seating area up to 1,500 sitting capacity, I am sure everyone will gets the chance to try out their desire dishes.

One of the highlight for this year SFF 2012 Official Opening of the SFF 2012 was a live cooking demonstration of Chilli Crab by SFF Food Consultant, Chef Eric Teo. GUEST OF HONOR (GOH), Mr Teo Ser Luck, Minister of State for Trade And Industry also join in together with Chef Eric to complete the cooking of this authentic Singapore signature dish.

Above are some of the participating food stalls of this year Singapore Food Festival 2012. And there are about 50 stalls featuring international and local favourite like Chilli Crab, Black Pepper Crab, Prawn Noodles, Italian Seafood Cuisines, Cze Char and etc.

Here, you can excite your palate with the launch of the first Singapore Food Festival Seafood Platter which is presented by Seafood Paradise (under Paradise Group). This seafood platter offers five varieties of seafood dishes, such as their popular Chilli Crab or Signature Creamy Butter Crab, Stir-fried Live Geoduck with Asparagus in XO Sauce, Crisp-fried Prawns tossed with Salted Egg Yolk, Deep-fried Coral Trout in Nyonya Style and Supreme Seafood Fried Rice.

This is how the Seafood Platter will be served upon purchased and you get to choose from either Chilli Crab or Signature Creamy Butter Crab to go with the rest of the 4 items. I love the taste and texture of the fried rice which is enhanced with the added fish roes. The salted egg yolk prawns are tasty too as well as the nyonya style sauce which used to coat the coral trout.

Price: S$36.90 per set
(*Note: only available at SFF Village from 13 - 22 July 2012, while stocks last)

In line with the Festival's seafood theme, Neo Garden has introduced Mussels to the well loved, thick Laksa gravy and coined the name "Signature Laksa's Mussel March" as the mussels are standing upright in marching stance. Apart from Laksa Mussel, their famous Curry ChickenHome-style Sin Chow Mee Hoo, Original and Buffalo-style Drumlets are also available at their stall in the SFF Food Village.

The Founder's Prawn Fritters from Neo Garden is a "must try" if you love this delicious homemade delicacy. Because of Mr Neo Kah Kiat's (founder and CEO of Neo Group Limited) love for this humble snacks, he had actually perfect this Prawn Fritters and make it into their signature dish which you cannot stop munching after one. The texture is so light and crispy plus the prawns are fresh juicy when bite.

To join in the waves of this year SFF 2012, Covelli Italian Bistro and Wine Bar also present their first ever Seafood Dessert which is known as "Squid Ink Meringue with Sea Urchin-Mango Cheese Mousse".  It is a very special dessert whereby you can taste two different distinctive flavour in one. I personally love the taste of the Sea Urchin Mango Cheese Mousse which gives it a light and refreshing after taste.

An interesting Baked Eggs snack from Ming Lang where they have other items such as Fish and Meatball Soup, Xiao Long Bao, Teppanyaki Squid, Takoyaki and etc.
