The annual Singapore Food Festival is back with several events from 15-31 July! Head over to Timbre+ for Open Stoves this weekend, sounds like a whole lotta tummy-filling fun!

Celebrating our food heritage, Hawker Spotlight showcases different hawker centres every year and this time round, it's somewhere closer to home at East Coast Lagoon Food Village.
One of my favorites was definitely the award-winning Curry Fish Head from Eastern Red Seafood [#01-37] - fresh succulent fish, loads of lady fingers, brinjal, in thick curry with a crazy spicy kick.

Other notable dishes introduced during the media tour includes the smokey, well-marinated satays from Haron Satay [#01-55]. Mutton was a little dry to me, chicken fared much better. And that glorious peanut dip! There's also Bak Kut Teh from Han Jia Bak Kut Teh [#01-42] which were pretty much sold out by the time we were there; the generously filled popiah from 人工湖 [#01-40] and Char Kway Teow from Choon Hiang [#01-46]. Usually not a fan of ckt and I'd think it isn't the best I've had, but it was still pretty shiok - sinfully hearty with all that wokhei, and perfectly cooked rice noodles.

Many of these award-winning stalls have been in operation for more than 50 years; with 2nd generation hawkers to keep the heritage alive, and my tummy happy.

Thank you #burpple for the invite and @visit_singapore & City Gas for hosting😋
