The upcoming Tiger Street Food Festival will get your stomach growling in hunger

The best way to #UncageStreetFood is with frosty beers, top-notch nosh, live tunes and lots of happy faces.

This was exactly what happened at the recent Tiger Street Food Pop-up.

The Deck on Prinsep Street was packed to the gills and spirits were high. The six hawker stalls were doing brisk business while live tunes from local crooner Gail Belmonte — a finalist on the China Super Vocal 2016 — filled the air.

An impressive $11,238 was raised for the Tiger Street Food Support Fund, where all proceeds go towards supporting Singapore’s budding hawkers.

If it was an appetiser, the main event — the Tiger Street Food Festival — will certainly be a full-blown feast!

Here are five reasons to visit the main event:

1. Pocket-friendly prices

Each $10 booklet of food and drinks vouchers will snag you an ample array of dishes and beers priced at $2 and $3 to $6 respectively.

2. Spoilt for choice

Relish a fusion platter of salted egg yolk pasta packed with creamy umami goodness from Snuggrubs. Or slurp up authentic Penang-style prawn noodles at Prawn Village.

Other stalls include Forum Hainanese Congee, Fishboss (nostalgic Yong Peng fishball noodles), Ah Tan Wings, Thong Sum Hot & Cold Desserts and more.

The full range of Tiger's beverages is available for a more shiok experience.

3. Pair 'em up

The suggested drinks pairings at each stall will make your experience more shiok.

Tiger White, a smooth and refreshing wheat beer, complements Prawn Village’s heady seafood broth perfectly. Or have a bold and strong Tiger Black to go with the crispy and aromatic prawn paste chicken wings from Ah Tan Wings!

Other drinks from the full range of Tiger’s beverages include the lower-calorie Silver, the latest Radler Grapefruit and even a fun Radler Slushie!

4. Hot act

What’s a festival without music? The Hashtags will be bringing their brand of smooth R&B melodies with blues licks and neo-ethnic grooves.

5. Fund with selfies

Go crazy at the Instagram-worthy neon photo wall, shoot “flatlays” of your favourite dishes and beers, and capture those Boomerang moments.

The more the merrier, because Tiger will donate $1 to the Tiger Street Food Support Fund for every festival photo posted on social media with the hashtag #UncageStreetFood.

Three new stars

Head to Jin Ji Teochew Braised Duck & Kway Chap, now helmed by second-generation hawker Melvin Chew, which prides itself on its unique menu of yam rice balls with braised duck.

Ah Lock Tofu.

Stop by Ah Lock Tofu for engineering undergrad Lee Lock Teng’s clever twist on Hakka Yong Tau Foo (gleaned from his grandmother’s decades-old recipe) with touches of Hakka Lei Cha (thunder tea rice).

Tang Kay Kee hor fun

And don’t miss Tang Kay Kee’s signature hor fun topped with a wobbly sous-vide egg and crisp enoki mushrooms. This is Ms Debbie Yam’s take on her grandfather’s signature dish, served from his zi char pushcart in the 1940s.
