Two renowned Vietnamese head chefs Tin Nguyen and Khoa Nguyen Dac and their skilled team from Hilton Da Nang have contributed to introducing the authentic and rich flavor of Vietnamese gastronomy such as Pho (Vietnamese noodle soup) and Banh My (Vietnamese baguette). 

Berry Chua, director of food and beverage of Conrad Hotel's, revealed that Vietnamese cuisine has become very popular in Singapore.

Over the past few years, many hotels in the city island nation have introduced Vietnamese cuisine in their menus, he said, adding that with the boom recorded in tourism and people’s increasing exposure to Vietnamese cuisine, the hotel has hosted the festival as a means of meeting the growing demand for Vietnamese cuisine.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Singapore Mai Phuoc Dung underscored the significance of the festival in helping Singaporean and international friends gain greater insights into special cuisine from three regions of Vietnam.

He expressed his hope that Vietnamese businesses and organisations will arrange additional culinary events moving forward to introduce the quintessence of Vietnamese cuisine to a global audience.
