In celebration of Singapore's Golden Jubilee, Singapore Favourite Food Village 2015 revives one of Singapore's iconic and long-lost makan place - Ellenborough Market - through the theme ‘A Wok Down Memory Lane at Ellenborough Market’.

Participants will get to discover the stories behind the market nicknamed the ‘New Market’ and ‘Teochew Market’ and one of the authentic hawkers of the old Ellenborough Market along with other Teochew cuisine and local delights hawkers.

Organised by the Singapore Food & Beverage Alliance (SFBA) and supported by Singapore Tourism Board, the Singapore Favourite Food Village 2015 seeks to bring back the dishes and tastes of yore to tantalise the tastebuds of the present.
Read on to find out about the giveaway :)


Live Cooking Demonstrations by various Teochew chefs are available every weekend from 24 July to 2 August 2015. Get cooking tips from local celebrity chefs such as Eric Low, while he showcases the authentic way of preparing Teochew Opera Porridge on 24 July!  


 While feasting to your heart’s content, you will be entertained by the traditional Teochew Opera, Tok Tok Chiang, which is co-founded by local celebrity Nick Shen Wei Jun.

Driven by his passion for Chinese Opera, Nick Shen founded Tok Tok Chiang in 2010 to reconnect youths with their cultural roots and keep the dying art of Chinese Opera alive. With refreshing elements such as magic tricks and bilingual performances, Tok Tok Chiang remains relevant by reaching out to people of different races in racially diverse Singapore.

Teochew opera gracefully combines music, singing, martial arts, acrobatics and acting with vibrant traditional costumes and dramatic make-up and masks. First introduced in Singapore at the Ellenborough Market, the Teochew Opera was one of the most popular and common entertainments for the Chinese community in the 1900s.  

At Singapore Favourite Food Village 2015 (SFFV 2015), visitors can eat to your heart’s content and discover the stories behind the Teochew delicacies and one of the authentic hawkers of the former Ellenborough Market.


I think this is the part most people are interested in haha!

At SFFV2015, do look out for their Top 10 dishesmainly 6 traditional Teochew food and 4 fusion food to tantalize your taste buds :)

Teochew Bak Kut Teh by Xiao Chen Gu Shi

In Singapore, there are two styles of cooking: the clear pepperish Teochew broth and the black herbal Hokkien version. 

小陈故事 emphasises on the traditional recipe that has been passed down for many generations to create a hearty bowl of broth that screams “that is how mothers make it”. To ensure smooth and succulent meat, the chefs do not utilise industrial kitchen and all dishes are prepared fresh on the spot.

Teochew Braised Duck by Mr Duck 

Braised ducks or Lor Ark come in two different styles. While the Hokkien-style offers thick and sweet gravy, the Teochews specialise in making light and savoury ‘Lor Chap’ or braised sauce, which consists of a mixture of dark soy sauce, soya sauce and five-spice powder.

The whole duck is then lightly pan-fried and stewed for hours in the braised sauce for a moist and tender texture. To ensure that the moisture of the duck meat is not lost, the art of chopping meat is also highly emphasised by traditional Teochew hawkers. Thin and wide slices of meat, accompanied by braised rice and soy sauce eggs, completes the hearty meal.

Carrot Cake with Salted Egg Sauce by Everything Foods

Invented by the Teochew Sisters, Candy and Jenny from Everything Foods, Carrot Cake with Salted Egg Sauce combines the traditional Teochew recipe with a modern twist. Simmered with fresh crabs, the salted egg sauce is then drizzled on their rendition of the Carrot Cake to give it a light crab fragrance. Other Carrot Cake flavours that Everything Foods will bring to the crowd are Tom Yam, Sour Cream and Onion, Hot and Spicy and Barbecue.

Ondeh Ondeh Churros by Churros Factory

The Ondeh Ondeh Churros replicates the look and feel of the Peranakan Kueh; Ondeh Ondeh. It is infused with Pandan flavour and paired with a gula melaka dip, topped with coconut shavings.
