Oishii Japan 2015 and Wine Fiesta 2015 - Couple of Food Festivals For This Weekend

Suntec Conventional Center is hosting this year's Oishii Japan 2015 event, which will be home to 300 food related exhibitors and booths from today, 22nd Oct until 24th October.

42 out of 47 prefectures of Japan will be represented this time, which means this is the largest Japan food fair in the whole of Southeast Asia.

Apart from food produce and products, this year's fair will also focus on food technology, something that the Japan is famous for.

You will get to experience a host of different machines and gadgets that will aid in restaurants and kitchens. Apart from that, there will also be a bunch of workshops and talks throughout the three days at the stage section.


One particular item to check out is the sochu booths. It is a popular distilled alcoholic beverage that is very popular among the Japanese, and it is just beginning to grab the attention of the larger world.

It tastes quite similar to the familiar sake, but what is interesting is that there are a number of flavoured sochu on display here, including sweet potato and palm sugar variants. My favourite is, of course, the very refreshing yuzu powered sochu. I must say it can get quite addictive as a tasty beverage for moi.

Wine Fiesta 2015

Over at the Clifford Square from 23rd to 25th October, there is also the annual Wine Fiesta 2015. Showcasing 82 winemakers and 350 winemakers, it is the single largest wine festival in Singapore. Being our jubilee year, the theme is Singapore style food, with wine and music.

Iberico Pork Kong Ba Bao

Some of the exciting food selections on offer include special concoctions from Candlenut's Malcolm Lee, Cheryl Koh from Tarte and Rabbit Stash's Matthew Mok. My favourite is Chef Malcolm's Iberico Pork Kong Ba Bao, which was superbly flavourful and well executed. A great representation of elevating the classic Singapore food to something more.

There will be also local musicians to lend an air or classy musicality to the occasion. Performers include Getai Group, Tim De Cotta, Vandetta and Weish.
