Virtual Food Tours
For foodies who also love exploring, the Virtual Food Tours lined up at SFF this year will surely whet appetites. They will be rediscovering Singapore’s charming precincts with one of Singapore’s most endearing local TV personalities, Chua Enlai. Journey virtually through the historical Tanjong Pagar and Chinatown precincts; as well as whimsical Katong and Joo Chiat to discover stories behind popular eats in the area, tales behind its heritage food businesses, and lesser-known food gems. For example, while Tong Heng is a well-known fixture in
Chinatown selling traditional Cantonese pastries, few may know its founder was a former Qing Dynasty security official who came to Singapore in search of a better life.
Through these virtual tours, audiences from all over the world will learn more about the history and heritage of the precincts and the food secrets they keep.
