Sole Pomodoro Trattoria Pizzeria in Singapore has done a great job on its new outlet. Set on Quayside Isle in Sentosa Cove, the outlet has spectacular view of the yachting marina.

My visit to Sole Pomodoro (at the invitation by Leslie Tay) allowed me to meet up with founders Mauro and Gerri whom I last met at their other Cugini outlet on Club Street in 2012.

The up-and-coming World Street Food Congress (WSFC) organised by Makansutra will take place on 31st May till 9th June 2013. Supported by the Singapore Tourism Board, the ten-day festival held at the F1 Pit Building and Paddock (1 Republic Boulevard) is not too be missed by all foodies and aficionados.

K.F. Seetoh, founder of Makansutra and TV host of The Food Surprise! on TLC Asia, unveiled the details of the WSFC at a press conference held last February at the Spice Market in New York City which comprises three main prongs:

- World Street Food Jamboree
- World Street Food Dialogue
- World Street Food Awards

The World Street Food Jamboree (31 May to 9 June) is a mega street food feast whereby around 40 of the world’s best street food masters gather and showcase their products. Visitors get to learn culinary cultures and enjoy new taste of hand-picked street foods from Indonesia, India, Thailand, Vietnam, USA, Mexico, Malaysia, Denmark, China and Singapore.

Keep an eye on the many exciting offerings, such as Pisang Roa (smoked fish sambal) and Kerak Telor (crispy glutinous rice frittata) from Indonesia, Banh Da Tom Hai Phong (prawn and fish red rice noodle) and Banh Khot (seafood rice cake) from Vietnam, Shrimps & Grits from United States and Bao Luo Fen from China. Not to be missed is the popular Penang Assam Laksa from Malaysia. This spicy-sour fish base soup noodle was voted No. 7 under CNNGo International Food Survey as “foods worth traveling the world to gorge on”.

Among the showcase stalls at the jamboree are Meyers Kokken by Claus Meyer (co-owner of NOMA, Denmark) and Lion City from Vietnam. Visitors can expect roasted Pork Sandwich and Seafood Teppanyaki (Singapore style).

Like in all countries, Singapore also has many varieties of hawker food, adding to the comfortable hotel cuisines. You can find countless hawker food stalls located inside the shops, eating areas and food courts all over the city with reasonable prices and interesting food. The variety of food is actually amazing.

The gastronomic adventure had several of us visiting many parts of the city. We started with breakfast at Chin Mee Chin Coffee & Cake Shop, an old-school kopitiam located in an old shop house.

 

Chin Mee Chin
204 East Coast Road,
Singapore 428903

Business Hour: 8.30am to 4.00 pm
Closed on Monday

This traditional Chinese confectionery is charming with its defining floor tiles, ceiling fans, marble-top tables and wooden chairs of the earlier years. All these give the place a very ‘old school’ look.

During my Singapore trip, I got the chance to taste some mouthwatering pasta when Dr. Leslie Tay brought the few of us to his favorite Italian restaurant, Cugini which is known for serving authentic and delicious Italian food. Cugini is the Italian word for ‘cousins’, which refers to the two Italian owners, Chefs Gerri Sottile and Mauro Muroni.
