SINGAPORE: The World Street Food Congress is making its return. Organised by Makansutra and supported by the Singapore Tourism Board, it will be held at the open field opposite Bugis Junction, at the intersection of Rochor Road and North Bridge Road, from Apr 8 to 12.
The five-day feasting jamboree is open to the public, and will feature 23 stalls from 12 cities, and a food truck run by a US Top Chef winner. Attendees can expect to indulge in food prepared by award winning chefs from all around the world.
This year's prices start from S$4.50, and the public can enjoy a cashless mode of payment via NETS or credit card.
In line with commemorating Singapore's 50th birthday, the National Heritage Board will be launching the SG50 Deliciously Singaporean exhibition on Apr 8, which will showcase the nation's food heritage and feature 50 uniquely Singaporean dishes.

This year's event will also see the launch of a Dialogue-Hackathon, which will comprise a range of networking activities, discussions and presentations.
Said Mr KF Seetoh, founder of Makansutra: "If anything else, just come and eat things that you cannot pronounce. Even for our local food. I was talking to some of our hawkers and said, 'Let's evolve our traditional stuff - so come up with a bonus har cheong gai - prawn paste chicken - burger with a sambal mayonnaise and a little nice salad.' So they are all very excited."
