Enjoy a taste of the 50’s at prices for as low as 50 cents at Chinatown Food Street! Featuring more than 30 traditional Singaporean dishes from chicken rice balls to kok kok mee, join many others in the queue to experience some of the most nostalgic local foods with your families for the last day tomorrow!
MENU AND PRICING
Some dishes cost 50¢, while some are $1.00 or $1.50. The only dish that costs $2.00 is the chilli crab. The price depends on the type of food and quantity served. Maximum of 4 portions per person. You can use either coins or notes for payment, while notes depend if they have enough change for you. There is also a coin changing stop near the entrance of the fest, opposite the fried rice stall.
Below are some of the interesting stalls in the festival:
- Oyster Omelette
- Sliced Fish Bee Hoon
- Chilli Crab
- Prawn Noodles Soup
- Fried Carrot Cake
- Bak Kut Teh
These dishes are served in mini bowls, each contains a small portion of the food. Below is a display of various dishes. I suggest ordering more portions for each dish, as the servings given are rather small.
Do visit this event and experience the lively atmosphere that is reminiscence of the past. There will be some old school entertainment such as black and white outdoor movie screenings, life performances by opera singers and martial arts professionals. Come down tomorrow Sunday (31/07/2016) to experience these nostalgic moments and saviour on local food from 11AM to 11PM for its final day! However, do take note that it will be quite crowded, so expect to wait for some time in order to get a table and queue for the food.
