The 50 Cents Fest at Chinatown returns this year
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.
Here are some dishes that will be featured:
- Rickshaw noodles
- UFO (fried oyster cake)
- Yam paste (orh nee)
- Tutu kueh
- Abacus seeds
- Red glutinous wine chicken
- Kong bak pau
- Satay bee hoon
- Pork leg bee hoon
- Soya sauce chicken rice
- Putu mayam
- Chicken briyani
- Cereal prawn
- Ma la baby lobster
- Salted egg yolk crab
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.
Besides food, you’ll get to participate in games such as hopscotch and pick-up sticks. This food fest also lets you sing along to live performances, and if you’re feelin’ the vibe, you can dedicate a song to your ah gong, ah ma or your friends!
Address: Smith Street, Chinatown Food Street, Singapore 058938
Event dates: 29 July (12pm to 11pm) and 30 July (11am to 11pm)
