If the feasting during the Lunar New Year has proven to unsatisfying, why not aim for something more upscale, as the annual Michelin Guide Street Food Festival is making a return for its third year, from February 22 to 24, 2019. This year’s gourmet festival will be taking place at The Coliseum in Resorts World Sentosa, and will feature a delectable repertoire of delicious street food from the kitchens of Michelin-starred eateries.
Building on the success of previous years’ festivals, this upcoming Michelin Guide Street Food Festival will feature a specially curated line-up of 15 establishments recognised in the Michelin Guide Singapore 2018.
Some of the highlights of this year’s festival are new F&B additions, such as the modern Australian wood-fired grill joint, Burnt Ends, which earned its first Michelin star in 2018. There is also Shisen Hanten, which marks its third year as the only two-starred Michelin restaurant in Singapore selling Sichuan cuisine.
Here is the full list of participating eateries that will definitely whet the appetite of any foodie:

As you can see, more than half of the eateries are participating in the Festival for the first time this year, meaning that there will still be something new for those who have attended the previous two Michelin Guide Street Food Festivals.
To participate in the Festival, you simply have to spend a minimum of S$30 on a Regular Ticket. Each purchase entitles you to S$27 worth of credits to use on all participating stalls, which can go a long way as the eateries will be showcasing their signature dishes at value-for-money prices, with the lowest starting from just S$3. You will also get a bottle of Evian or Badoit water to help you wash the food down.
For those who wish to experience the Crazy Rich Asian life, there is the VIP ticket which is selling for S$200 per ticket. Each VIP ticket holder will be able to dine at the VIP area, and be served a glass of wine and beer, in addition to the bottle of Evian or Badoit water they will receive. They will also be served a portion of food from every stall that is participating in the Festival. If this piques your interest, we advise that you get the ticket soon, as there is a limit of only 88 VIP seats per session.
