17th July 2017

The 50 Cents Fest at Chinatown returns this year

50 Cents Fest - flatlay

People always say Singaporeans love to complain, especially when it comes to money. And a complaint I always hear from people around me has to do with the increase in prices. Well, if you’re one of those who can’t deal with rising costs at kopitiams, The 50 Cents Fest at Chinatown will interest you.

The 50 Cents Fest serves over 40 dishes at 50 cents each. This two-day event will happen from 29 to 30 July 2017, and you’ll get to savour a wide range of hawker dishes.

50 Cents Fest - Abacus Seeds

Here are some dishes that will be featured:

  1. Rickshaw noodles
  2. UFO (fried oyster cake)
  3. Yam paste (orh nee)
  4. Tutu kueh
  5. Abacus seeds
  6. Red glutinous wine chicken
  7. Kong bak pau
  8. Satay bee hoon
  9. Pork leg bee hoon
  10. Soya sauce chicken rice
  11. Putu mayam

Other than the dishes mentioned above, you can also munch on classics such as Hokkien mee, fried kway teow, satay, and more. If you, like me, always have a spot in your stomach reserved for desserts, end your scrumptious meal with a round of childhood treats such as ice balls, muah chee, and of course, the ever crowd-pleasing rainbow bread with ice-cream.
