This inaugural festival is organised by RAS, with support from the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA), Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and Union Pay, will offer the public a unique opportunity to savour local produce - namely eggs, fish and vegetables - that will be featured in 50 newly-created dishes from 50 restaurant brands. Why 50? Because its SG50 this year!

Out of these 50 restaurants, there are 12 heritage restaurants that have graced the local culinary scene for decades, and they are, Bee Heong Palace Restaurant, Beng Thin Hoon Kee Restaurant, Chin Lee Restaurant, Fatty Weng Restaurant, Gim Tim, Hua Yu Wee, Islamic Restaurant, Prima Tower Revolving Restaurant, Red Star Restaurant, Spring Court Restaurant, Westlake and Zi Yean Restaurant.

The chef explained to us that the egg white is disguised as crab, which i do think that it resembles crab in a way! Until 2nd August 2015.

4. Palm Beach Seafood Restaurant

Fried Baby Barramundi S$18/500 grams

The local produce is of course Barramundi.

I am always skeptical that my seafood dishes will always end up expensive especially those with ''market prices''. But with this dish, no fear, every barramundi weighs 500 grams, so you only pay a standard price of S$18 for this fish.
