Marina Bay Sands integrated resort is holding the second edition of its gastronomic festival Epicurean Market from Sept 12 to 14, together with its Formula One festivities.

Aside from browsing a variety of gourmet goodies at the picnic-themed event, foodies can also get sneak peeks at what Australia-born chef David Thompson and Los Angeles chef David Myers will have to offer at their upcoming restaurants in MBS.

One of Thompson's dishes from his new Long Chim restaurant, which is slated to open by the last quarter of the year, is charred rice noodles with squid, celery, chicken, spring onion and Sriracha chilli sauce.

Thompson, whose Nahm restaurant in Bangkok currently tops British trade publication Restaurant magazine's list of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants, says: "Long Chim means 'come and taste', and that is exactly the sort of atmosphere and food we're going to create at MBS. Long Chim is all about great tasting street food that is affordable and accessible. I hope Singaporeans will agree."
