What is it about? The inaugural Singapore Restaurant Month festival packs 50 restaurants across the island to feature local produce (eggs, fish and vegetables) in 50 newly-created dishes for you to savour!
Where can I go to savour these? Well, these 50 restaurants have been carefully selected to ensure you diners get the best out of our local produce. Of the 50, there are 10 heritage restaurants that have graced the local culinary scene for decades, including Spring Court, Red Star Restaurant, Prima Tower Revolving Restaurant and Beng Thin Hoon Kee Restaurant. The other participating restaurants includes Chinese restaurants (Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant, TungLok Signatures and Yum Cha Restaurant at Chinatown) to Western diners (Cafe Iguana, Hard Rock Cafe, Portico and Swensen’s) and even celebrity chef restaurants (Forest and Osia)!
Each of these heritage and participating restaurants will be featuring a dish prepared using the local Singapore produce! Some examples:
Beng Thin Hoon Kee Restaurant – Shark’s Fin Scrambled Egg with Lettuce
Forest – Sri Lanka Crabmeat with Egg White
Hard Rock Cafe – Sea of Love
Islamic Restaurant – Islamic Fish Beryani
Jumbo Seafood – Deep Fried Red Tilapia with Nonya Sauce
Osia – 62°C Hen’s Egg
Prima Tower Revolving Restaurant – Sauteed Bird’s Nest with Egg White
Red Star Restaurant – Omelette Crispy Noodle with Prawns
Spring Court – Yam Ring with Sweet and Sour Prawns

When is this? The Singapore Restaurant Month will be going on from 1st July to 10th August 2015! And yes, it covers our long SG50 weekend (7th to 10th August 2015), with 50 restaurants for you to drool over!
Who organised this? The festival is organised by the Restaurant Association of Singapore, with support from Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) and Singapore Tourism Board (STB), and in conjunction with the SG50 celebrations this year and the Singapore Food Festival (more of this in our next Snippets!).
