7 Things To Do At ‘The GREAT Food Festival’

So you’ve probably heard about a massive food festival – “Singapore’s most ambitious and wide-ranging food festival to date” – coming to Resorts World Sentosa from 21 to 24 September 2017. But what does that even mean for me? How is it going to be different from any other food festival? It means you’ll get to do 7 things not otherwise possible if not for ‘The GREAT Food Festival’ (TGFF).

1.  Savour over 100 exquisite dishes from Michelin-starred and award-winning restaurants around the world

Sure, you don’t have to come to TGFF just to taste Michelin-starred cuisine – but we’re talking about Michelin-starred and award-winning restaurant chefs from 5 continents and over 16 different countries all converging in a single venue. That means you’ll get to sample their creations (from S$10) all at once!

2. Get star struck

3. Snap shots of Insta-worthy desserts
