Marina Bay Sands’ (MBS) signature culinary event, Epicurean Market, comes back for its fifth installment from 11 to 13 August at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre.
Debuting this year is a new Singapore street food experience that showcases the country’s culinary culture. Presented by buffet restaurant Rise, it is set in a two-storey shophouse and will showcase classic dishes such as png kueh, rendang pipi daging (wagyu beef cheek braised rendang-style with turmeric ginger rice), roti prata; and traditional desserts like ice kachang ball, ting ting tang and muah chee.
Another new feature this year is the Kampung Bar, where some of the best Diageo World Class bartenders will shake and stir up cocktails inspired by our hawker fare. Expect cocktails that combine flavours like lemongrass and pandan with Tanqueray gin and Don Julio tequila and such.
Meanwhile, look forward to Epicurean Market stalwarts like the Farmer’s Market featuring fresh produce curated from Asia, Europe and North America, dishes offered by MBS’s restaurants, and exciting master classes by world-renowned chefs and experts.
For instance, David Myers will be showing off his Californian izakaya cuisine inspired by his travels, and Tetsuya Wakuda will run a session on fresh produce and flavours. Meanwhile, an exciting range of drinks-focused master classes include tastings and talks about Japanese premium whiskies, explorations into spirits from vodka to cognac, and bubbly beyond champagne.
Three-day passes start at $39.
