What to look forward to at the World Street Food Congress Jamboree  

Embrace a smorgasbord of foods and flavours from countries such as Bolivia, Germany and The Philippines at this year's World Street Food Congress Jamboree.

The food festival, which is part of a two-day dialogue on global street food, will run from today (April 9) until Sunday (April 12) at the field opposite Parco Bugis, near Bugis MRT station.

Organised by street food guide publisher and food consultancy Makansutra, the first edition of the congress was held two years ago (2013).

Dishes to sink your teeth into at this instalment include Kinilaw, a bright Filipino-style ceviche; Sisig or crispy wonton skins filled with grilled pork cheek and pig's ears, drizzled with a soya-sauce and vinegar reduction; and Anticucho, a dish popular in countries such as Peru, Chile and Bolivia that is made with grilled pork - in South America the dish is usually made with beef heart - that has been marinated in a house-made banana leaf vinaigrette and served with salsa, potatoes and a peanut and yellow aji amarillo pepper sauce.

The 24 participating stalls are made up of restaurants, street food vendors, and food truck owners from some 12 cities around the globe.
