Singapore Food Masters 2019 Brings You the Battle of Local Dishes!

Vote for Singapore's Food Masters and Stand to Win Up To $1,200 in Shopping Vouchers

Singapore, 26 September 2019 
- Singapore Food Masters 2019 is back with a mission - to discover who has mastered the culinary art of food! This year, the search is on again to honour the food heroes of our Singapore culture and rich culinary history. From tomorrow 27 September till Thursday 31 October, readers of Singapore Press Holdings (SPH)'s publications, can once again vote for their favourite local dishes whipped up by Singapore's passionate hawkers and culinary chefs. 

The participating 120 stalls and restaurants will compete against each other with hopes of garnering the most number of votes from the public. They are categorised by zones in Singapore - North, Central, East and West. The top ten dishes from each zone will then move on to the finals where the judges, comprising food writers and influencers, will choose the top 3 dishes from each zone. The top three finalists will then be crowned based on the following criteria - taste, service, cleanliness, value for money and healthier choice.

For this upcoming edition of Singapore Food Masters, some of the eateries which are joining us for the first time include Flying Wok, Tamoya Udon, Olden Street Bak Kut Teh, FLAGWHITE and Jiak Modern Tzechar. Peace Japanese Cuisine is also back for the third time, after clinching the title of Top 3 of the West Zone in 2018. 
The stalls and restaurants will be featured in The New Paper and Tabla! on 27 September 2019, Lianhe Zaobao on 28 September 2019, The Sunday Times on 29 September 2019, and U-Weekly on 4 October 2019. Voters can look out for the zone code in the publications, at the stalls and foodmasters website to cast their votes. Those who voted for any of the top 3 finalists of each zone stand a chance to win a $100 shopping voucher each in a lucky draw, with 12 winners to be selected.
