The 50 Cents Fest is back with Hokkien Cuisines this July

It’s two days of fun for foodies in Singapore, as the fourth edition of The 50 Cents Fest is back! On 27 and 28 July 2019, you will be able to indulge in over 50 varieties of Hokkien savouries and sweets at Chinatown Food Street. This gastronomic experience is in line with the Hokkien Heritage theme for the annual Singapore Food Festival.

Everything at this food festival will be priced from a humble S$0.50 to no more than 6 x 50 cents (S$3.00). You will get to taste traditional Hokkien dishes – some of which are rare finds these days – ranging from Hokkien-style rice, noodles and nourishing soups, to snacks, small pastries, and ice-cold desserts and drinks.

Over 40 stalls and mobile vendors will fill up the food street, with one “hidden and mystery” stall that’s specially invited from Malaysia to serve up ‘KL Black Hokkien Mee’ at only 2 x 50 cents (S$1). This store will also be cooking up ‘Buddha Jumps Over The Wall’ soup for only 6 x 50 cents (S$3). This nutritious soup will be the most ‘Woo Hua’ (value for money) item for the food festival, since premium ingredients like conpoy, fish maw, abalone and ginseng will be used to make this classic soup.
