As part of the Singapore Food Festival
, Chinatown Food Street will be hosting The 50 Cents Fest
from Jul 30-31
. The area will be turned into a street hawker-style space, with stalls serving over 30 traditional local dishes across 20 vendors and a team of mobile hawkers.
Dishes such as Hainanese chicken rice, Rickshaw noodles, Hokkien prawn noodles, pig trotters and laksa will cost from as low as 50 cent, in a move to show visitors the value of food in the '50s and '60s. Other activities at the event range from street buskers demonstrating crafts like letter writing, calligraphy and fortune-telling, black-and-white outdoor movie screenings, and performances by opera singers and martial arts professionals.
