It was a great day chilling out at Jamie’s Italian during my Perth holiday trip.

The William Street eatery is welcoming with its wide selection of wines, and a menu with balance between pasta, cold meals, antipasto dishes and desserts. I pretty much love its casual and lively ambiance.

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).
