But more importantly, this year’s SAVOUR Gourmet will feature FREE ENTRY! A total of 10 restaurants are featured at the Gourmet Village, and dishes are priced at the more affordable pricing of either $6 or $12. Cash and credit are now also accepted on the grounds. You can also purchase the SAVOUR Experience Pack for $30 which includes vouchers to be spent at the Gourmet Village and Jasons Gourmet Market, a goodie bag and an exclusive Xiao Long Bao from 3-michelin starred Bo Innovation (otherwise not available to the public)!

The 10 restaurants featured are

  • CATO – Tommy KJim with mentor Ethan Li
  • Gattopardo – Kenneth Oh with mentor Lino Sauro

  • Salt Tapas & Bar – Ronald Li with mentor Luke Mangan
  • Saveur Art – Tyler Lai (slugging it out on his own)
  • Guest Team R&D – Eric Chong (Masterchef Canada Winner) with mentor Alvin Leung

I had a sneak peek on Thursday, and my was the whole place teeming with activity. Did I mention that the location is also more accessible this year? It’s located at the empty field next to Marina Bay Sands, so for those coming by public transport, just take the MRT to Bayfront MRT Station and it will be a 5 minute walk to SAVOUR.

What to do at Savour 2013?

Savour2013 (3)

Before you do anything else at Savour 2013, you have to take a shot of the Singapore Flyer from the entrance angle. Smile

I was there today for The Great Fiji Water Race. If you didn’t go today, you’ve missed it, but you can still review all the action at http://instagram.com/365days2play. In fact, you should add me on Instagram and Twitter because you can get INSTANT and LIVE updates from me! SmileSmile

It was insanely hot when I got there at 2pm today. Woe betide the staff that had to stay at the ground level out in the open because I was sweltering after just 5 minutes there while doing my Fiji Water Race. Although the afternoon tickets are cheaper, I highly recommend that you take the evening tickets as it just makes for a more pleasant experience. I spent most of my time exploring the air-conditioned Gourmet Market, which is located in the F1 Pit Building. Whether you have an afternoon ticket or an evening ticket, you can enter the Gourmet Market anytime. The ticket type only restricts your movements in the Gourmet Village.

There was lots to do in the Gourmet Market. I armed myself with a toothpick and went around sampling all the delicious goodies. The Gourmet Market has a very Farmer’s Market feel, and you don’t feel pressured to buy anything at all. The guys at the gourmet sausage section were dishing out sausage after sausage after sausage and were probably the most packed area after the cheese section. As for the cheeses, I literally tasted 10 different types of cheeses!
