Revel in a world of scrumptious delights at The GREAT Food Festival, Singapore’s largest gourmet lifestyle event by Resorts World Sentosa and Savour Events.
From now till 24 September 2017, The Great Food Festival (TGFF) is hosting celebrated chefs worldwide alongside star chefs from RWS across several venues within the resort.

With hundreds of creations to savour, the festival is split into three themed zones. Star Chef Arena, Rollin’ Sweet Times, and Heritage Lane.
Star Chef Arena
This is where you get to meet (and be starstruck by) top chefs from all over the world. You can catch the chefs in action, and if they are free, maybe even grab a photo with them.
Some quick tips to note about TGFF
• Cash is not accepted in TGFF. You’ll need to buy TGFF Credits vouchers from the event ticketing booths.
• Debit and Credit cards are accepted. (Visa and Mastercard preferred).
• Star Chef Arena and Rollin’ Sweet Times are ticketed zones; visitors will need to purchase entry passes.
• For quality control, some dishes may have limited servings for each session. Thus, be there early to avoid disappointment!
Hal Yamashita from SYUN.
Culinary team from Fratelli – Trattoria Pizzeria.
Sam Leong, Forest Leong, with their son Joe Leong – who is also a chef.
Kristen Kish – Winner of Top Chef Season 10.
Ian Kittichai from Tangerine.
Scott Webster from Osia.
Dishes here start from $10, giving everyone a great opportunity to sample grand cuisine without breaking the bank. Some top picks from my table:
Tangerine’s 12-hours Cooked Boneless Wagyu Short Rib ($20)
Aquavit’s Poached Eggs & Asparagus ($16)
Osia’s Fried Irish Oyster ($10)
The tents are quite small and mainly houses the open kitchens. The good thing is the resort has plenty of tables running all over the resort, and the staff were quite responsive to roll out extra seat and tables outdoors to cater for the crowds.
The Heritage Lane comprises 12 stalls cooking up over 50 dishes, as the name suggests, heritage-inspired dishes. Prices start from $6, and the good thing is this entire stretch is open to the public.

Rollin’ Sweet Times
Conclude (or start) your foodie adventure at Rollin’ Sweet Times, the mothership of desserts.
Masterclasses are held here at the Cake Atelier, where you’ll witness how stunning cakes are decorated by Clifford Luu and Julian Angel.
Some crowd favourites here are Black Star Pastry and N2 Extreme Gelato.
Antonio Benites from Joel Robuchon Restaurant, presenting the desserts Les Fruits Rouges and La Mangue Perroquet ($10 each).
The popular treats at Bouffe Boutique Cafe.
There are more intricately decorated cakes at Creme Maison and Cupplets for you to gawk over.
You can also grab the colourful, Boomerang-ready The Talad Drink.
Some of the desserts glow in the dark (Glonuts from Black Star Pastry, and the Yuzu Gelato/ Sorbet from N2 Extreme Gelato), and that’s what this GLO Room is for.
For your Halloween Horror Nights inspired #foodiegrams.
