5 Culinary Highlights At The Upcoming Singapore Food Festival 2018 Including A Durian Surprise From McDonald’s

Go on hawker trails, participate in kueh-making workshops and feast on chef collaborative meals

Sticking to the same theme of ‘Savour Singapore in Every Bite’, Singapore Food Festival makes a delicious return for its 25th edition from 13 to 29 July.

With the spotlight shining on local cuisine and the illustrious heritage that comes with it, the gastronomic fiesta will see to returning favourites such as personality Moses Lim-led hawker tours and the 50 Cents Festival, alongside other new and exciting culinary ventures including an eight hands dinner by the likes of Folklore’s Chef Damian D’Silva  and Labyrinth’s Han Li Guang (just to name two),  and  boozy beer yoga sessions.

Here are some of the highlights to look out for when Singapore Food Festival comes around:

1. A durian surprise from McDonald’s?

“Durian McFlurry!”

We challenged the spokesperson at the McDonald’s booth, which was designed to replicate a makeshift durian stall, during the media preview of the food festival, seeing how the internet’s abuzz about the king of fruits-fast food dessert mashup that is available across the border. However, the McDonald’s people still remained tight-lipped, jesting that it could be a durian burger for all we know. Only time will tell before we know about this big delicious secret, slated to break in early July. The surprise comes in lieu with the fast food giant’s upcoming Love Local Campaign.
