Singapore is brimming with large food festivals, but Sentosa never had one, until now. By Jethro Kang
The island is launching its first Sentosa Food Fest on October 21, which will consist of four different events over ten weeks.
These events include beachside barbecues, food trucks, and craft beer, as well as Sentosa’s various restaurants serving menus created especially for the festival.
Everything to know about the Sentosa food festival
Kicking off the celebration is Sentosa GrillFest. The event returns to the island from October 21 to November 13, in its biggest form yet, involving 31 food vendors and over 200 dishes served by the shore.
The barbecue festival will be spread out between Beach Plaza and Scentopia, and spans four zones offering local dishes, live grilling stations, popular items from the event’s past editions, and an entertainment area with beer, desserts, and music.
Following that, the Sentosa Restaurant Trail brings together the island’s dining establishments from November 7 to 17. Twelve venues from beach clubs to waterfront restaurants will present lunch and dinner set menus ranging from SGD 30 (INR 1,718) ++ to SGD 80 (INR 4,582) ++.
These restaurants include Bedrock Origin, Greenwood Fish Market, The Kitchen Table, FOC Sentosa, and Ola Beach Club, which will be serving dishes such as steak, squid ink paella, blue swimmer crab fried rice, and the Hawaiian-inspired huli huli chicken.
Other events include the Sentosa Food Truck Fiesta, which will offer a food market and free movie screenings at Palawan Green from November 18 to 27. Following that, the Craft Beer Jamboree will take place from November 25 to December 4, pouring brews by local and international brands.
A range of food-related programmes and activities are also planned throughout the Sentosa Food Fest, including cooking workshops by the Junior Chef Association and sustainable farming and habits workshops by Siloso Beach Resort.
Entry to the festival is free, with food paid separately. Visit their website for more details.
