The Asia Food Festival and a mini arts festival commenced today at Coco Cabana in Marina Bay and will end on April 23. In case you are wondering where is Coco Cabana, it is formerly known as the Marina Bay Seafood Restaurant where the seahorse lighthouse is located.
The Asia Food Festival hosts over 40 stalls, manned by chefs and culinary masters from across the region. It features delicacies rarely found locally such as those from Thailand, Taiwan, China and Korea. Walking from stalls to stalls, I saw quite a wide variety of food ranging from crispy crabs, fried chicken chops, fried squids, Taiwan squid with rice, smelly tofu, Taiwan sausages, duck meat, mango juice, Korean Taiyaki, Thai fruit ice rolls and lots more.
Coco Cabana is a new branding that symbolises the will to create something new. It is a place for creativity, exhibitions, family gatherings and more. It marks the revival of the former premises of the Marina Bay Seafood Restaurant.
The location was once popular due to the seahorse lighthouse, lovely sea views, magnificent sunsets and the antique Parisian-style architecture of the building that used to house the restaurant. I love the site and took plenty of photos.
The mini arts festival, also known as ‘Seahorse Mini Arts Carnival, showcases the creativity of many buskers, artists and designers. There will also be workshops, photography contest and exhibition, Chinese tea art demonstration, tea appreciation seminar, La Danza dance team performance, “I Love Miri” dance performance, urban choreography dance class, dance choreography session, a fun fitness flashmob, a live wall painting, children’s colouring contest, a board game competition and a Cosplay appearance.
The festival starts at 3pm and ends at 11pm.
