Has severe RBF but is fairly jolly and carefree on the inside. Degree of life satisfaction is heavily influenced by food.

Singapore Food Festival (SFF) is back in 2023 and it's the largest edition to date. Held at Bayfront Event Space, it features an impressive line-up of over 100 food & drink vendors.


While feasting on Singaporean cuisine, festival-goers will also enjoy live music and can sign up for workshops and masterclasses. There's even shopping to do! Head to the Gourmet Market to stock up on premium produce, or go down memory lane with nostalgic snacks at the SG Mama Shop.

The stalls are sectioned into seven zones including a Café Boulevard housing coffee and pastries by local brands, and a Sweets Alley dedicated to - you guessed it - desserts. It can be quite overwhelming to navigate some 100 stalls, so we've put together this list of our favourites stalls that you can zone in for.

P.S.: The pictured food images are of tasting portions. The actual dishes come in larger portions.

#1 Good Graces - dry laksa

When a stall offers just one dish, you can be certain it will deliver, and this one certainly did!

This fancy Dry Laksa Goreng ($12) had noodles coated in a fragrant, dense and highly addictive rempah. This homemade spice is made with 15 carefully selected ingredients. It's served with four juicy prawns, a hard boiled egg, tau pok and fish cake.


#2 Chun Noodle Bar (Chun Feng Man Mian) - atas char siu noodles

The Truffle Iberico Char Siu Noodles ($12) might be pricier than typical hawker fare but it fully lives up to its price tag. The bouncy noodles had a delightful truffle aroma with just the right intensity. Accompanying it were succulent char siew, wonton and veggies.

#3 Sourbombe Bakery - doughnuts in exclusive flavours

This trendy bakery has introduced exclusive flavours of their popular sourdough bomboloni ($6 each) such as White Rabbit and Milo Dinosaur. These soft and pillowy doughnuts were generously stuffed with fillings that weren't too sweet - the ultimate Singaporean compliment for desserts!

#4 Jammy's - keto & vegan ice creams

Craving desserts but not the guilt that comes with it? That might sound too good to be true but Jammy's proves otherwise. Their ice creams are keto- and diabetic-friendly, low carb and gluten-free. They also contain no sugar and have vegan options too. The cherry on top is that they taste just like their guilt-ridden counterparts!

#5 Whiskdom - cookies and brownies

If you're in the mood for something thoroughly indulgent, do it right with Whiskdom's decadent cookies and brownies.

The chunky and decadent cookies come in two SFF-exclusive flavours: Stylo Milo and Kaya Cheesecake ($6.50 each).

#6 R&B Tea - bubble tea including a SFF-exclusive

R&B Tea bubble tea might be widely available in Singapore but SFF is the only place you can get the Lychee Rose Mint Cooler ($7). We fell in love with this refreshing and lightly sweet beverage with soothing hints of mint and floral notes.


#7 HENG HENG KUEH - traditional kueh with a modern twist

With 40 years building its expertise in kueh-making, HENG HENG KUEH is the place for delicious and fragrant kuehs from traditional ones to modern renditions. Go for the cute Kueh Skewers ($3 each, $8 for three) to try a variety of kuehs, the chewy Ondeh Ondeh (#3.20) or old-school Muah Chee ($5).

#8 Yew Kee x PastaGo - braised duck with pasta

Yew Kee, a heritage brand established in 1961, is putting a spin on their braised duck with pasta by PastaGo.

Our recommendations are the Braised Duck Golden Kong Ba Bao ($9 for two) had large chunks of tender duck sandwiched between crispy buns, and the satisfyingly crunchy Pasta Fries ($8) served with spicy dipping sauce.

#9 Cheeky Bee Hoon - bee hoon and salted egg fried chicken
