You know how when you’re younger and your grandparents will always tell you about the good old days, where life was tough, internet wasn’t available, but people were happy.
It was a simpler time where Singaporeans didn’t have unemployment and mobile data caps to worry about. No wonder my grandparents grew up right.
On 28 and 29 July 2018, bring your ah gong and ah ma out to Chinatown for them to reminisce a little, and relive the good old days at the 50 Cents Fest 2018!
Old School Singaporean Food For Just 50 Cents
This time, the 50 Cents Fest is throwing it back even further, taking visitors back to the golden era of the 1930s, with the Chinatown Food Street undergoing an 30s makeover, selling long-lost Singaporean dishes at the price of the yesteryears.
This is the 3rd edition of the amazing event that debuted at the Singapore Food Festival 2016. If this is your first time going to the festival, you can expect to find authentic 1930s local fare.
Some of the dishes you can get there include Kerabu Bee Hoon (a stir fried spicy, sweet and sour bee hoon dish. Think, dry mee siam), Fish Molee (a fish curry stew), and the polarising Kopi Gu You (black coffee with butter).
There will be more than 40 dishes available at the fest, with over 20 dishes priced at an unbelievable 50 cents. Food for 50 cents in this economy? Bo ko leng. But I’m telling you, it’s real.
That’s not all, there will also be entertainment acts available. Catch Taxi Girl and traditional opera performances, or walk down the streets of the 1930s with a one-of-a-kind virtual reality installation!
Don’t miss out on this 2-day food fest. Run and tell ah gong and ah ma about this! Mai tu liao!
