Singapore Takeout: the travelling pop-up kitchen, have you seen it?
It's been a fruitful 7 months working on the Singapore Takeout project and I'm proud to share some info about this exciting project especially since it is almost coming to an end!
The pop-up kitchen (which is essentially a shipping container) has travelled to top gastronomic cities such as Hong Kong, New York, London and is making is last stop in Sydney to promote Singapore as a must-visit food destination and our modern Singapore-inspired cuisine.
Singapore Takeout also aims to increase awareness of our city's talented chefs. A line-up of our city's top culinary names (Janice Wong, Andre Chiang, Ryan Clift, Ignatius Chan, etc.) will work with an in-market chef from each city to create delicious and innovative dishes representing the multi-cultural flavours and ingredients Singapore is well-known for. There's both public and private sessions which allows people to sample the food right out of the container.
I remember when Singapore was just famous for its hawker fare / variety of food because of our multi-cultural heritage, but now the world's finest restaurants are setting up outlets here along with a buncha other cool and exciting food places such as quaint coffee cafes and cocktail bars. Ask any Singaporean, and no one actually gets sick talking about food...
Speaking of which, these are a few coffee / brunch cafes to check out if you're always on the lookout for all-day breakfast places like me!
1. Club Street Social, Genmill Lane
I haven't been there but I'm really wanting to check out this place and it's pretty new!
2. Spruce, Restaurant Bar & Bakery at 32o Tanglin Road
3. Toby's Estate at Rodyk Street (near Robertson Quay)
Apparently, this place serves really good Aussie coffee since it's a Sydney-coffee chain outlet. I've tried it as well and it's pretty damn good.
Till the next food post!
