More than 35 stalls were set up in Singapore on May 31 to kick off The World Street Food Congress. KF Seetoh, founder of Makansutra, a local food enthusiast company, organized the event to promote street food and provide more opportunities for vendors.
There are 10 days to indulge in all the mouth-watering flavors. While most of the countries represented are from the East, including China, India and Indonesia, there are a few Western countries thrown into the mix as well. Mexico’s La Guerrerense, featured in Travel and Leisure will be dishing out ceviche and salsa.
June 3 and June 4 mark the World Street Food Dialogue, featuring 17 speakers from around the world, such as Anthony Bourdain, James Oseland, Brett Burmeister, and the brainchild of the event, KF Seetoh.
Topics will range from India’s effort to legitimize 5 million street food vendors and NASVI–the National Association of Street Vendors of India to world trends, social impact, and effects on street food culture at-large.
