STREET FOOD BONANZA
The first ever RWS Street Eats festival
From 12 to 20 August, Resorts World Sentosa celebrates the diversity of Southeast Asian cuisine with its first ever RWS Street Eats festival. A showcase of some of the best hawkers in the region, the festival will bring in
11 stalls from Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand just for the event, to join the nine permanent stalls at Malaysian Food Street. They include Restoran Damodaran Nair from Pahang, known for its 60-yearold Sempalit curry chicken secret recipe; Nhā Hāng Viet from Ho Chi Minh City which will be serving up its full-bodied pho noodles based on Iron Chef Đỗ Quang Long’s recipe; and Chatuchak Market’s Foon Ta Lop, known for its fabulous papaya salad and Thai fried chicken.
The event will be sprawled across 2,400 square feet of space, including the new outdoor area adjacent to Malaysian Food Street. A beer garden collaboration with Tiger Beer and durian pop-up stalls along the Waterfront Promenade add to the fun, while live music performances provide added entertainment on weekends. Entry is free, and prices for each dish range from $4 to $8. Food vouchers can be bought online in advance.
