Running out of ideas for date night in Singapore? The upcoming Singapore Food Festival (SFF) might provide inspiration. The annual festival, which runs from 13 to 29 July, is already into its 25th year, celebrating the best food that our country has to offer.
This year, SFF is partnering with a variety of vendors to pair activities with food. Here are four that you’ll be seeing us at with the missus.
1. Beer, Yoga, & City Lights
We’re not the biggest fans of yoga but we’ll make an exception for this. Offered on three different nights, this fun activity combines wellness and booze for an intimate and unforgettable evening. Hosted at Clifford Square, this one-hour yoga class includes a free craft beer to sip on in between downward dogs.
$29 per pax, register online here
2. Movie and Dinner at The Screening Room
Dinner and a movie is a classic date night but The Screening Room offers a great twist on this staple, screening a variety of food-focused films in their bar theatre. Enjoy one of the venue’s many signature cocktails or indulge in their small platters while watching romantic food-focused films such as The Hundred Foot Journey. You can even grab a delicious meal before the show downstairs at their restaurant The Coriander Grille.
Guests are required to spend $15 per pax on food and beverages to enjoy the screening, check out their website for movie listings
3. Star-Crossed Dinner
Alcove at Caldwell House is celebrating SFF with a food-and-dance show experience titled A Samsui Love Story. This five-course meal, which features modern Singaporean cuisine, is accompanied by a dance that follows a pre-war Singapore tale of two star-crossed lovers, a Samsui woman and a Satay man, both of whom are not who they seem. Channel your inner Romeo and Juliet and catch the show while dining on delicious food created by chef Nixon Low.
$105 per pax, buy tickets to the show here
4. Dinner and a Show
Another dinner and show concept is Makan Cosmopolitan 2018, which is a new art-and-food experience set in the heart of Singaporean culture – the hawker centre. Three actors explore the ins and outs of relationships in that iconic setting while you gorge on a specially-curated menu created by Chef Roy of Escobar.
