Chef Mohammad Orfali

Singapore 'a must-visit destination for foodies'

DUBAI, April 21, 2019

Chef Mohammad Orfali, star of the Middle East’s leading food channel, Fatafeat, has extolled the virtues of Singapore as the destination for Muslim tourists who have a passion for food.
Chef Orfali believes that Singapore’s melting pot of flavours, combining Chinese, Indian, Malay and Peranakan influences, makes it a must-visit destination for any foodie. It is a city that those from the Arab world, in particular, will appreciate for its history and authenticity of the cuisine, said chef Orfali.
Recounting his experiences from a recent trip to Singapore with Fatafeat and the Singapore Tourism Board, Chef Orfali said: “The vibrancy of the city is evident wherever you go and I couldn’t wait to immerse myself in the flavours and customs of cooking and creating in the kitchen.”  
Singaporeans are passionate about food and the city has developed a dining scene steeped in heritage and tradition, yet imbued with a voracious appetite for innovation.  Renowned for one of the most distinctive street food cultures in the world, Singapore connects people to the hawker culture and local communities like nowhere else.  
Abdul Rahman Mohideen, area director MEA for the Singapore Tourism Board, said: “Singapore is actively shaping a landscape of epicurean inventiveness and has established itself as a hotspot for culinary talents who push new boundaries in dining experiences. It has become a magnet for the world’s top food personalities including the likes of Chef Orfali, with renowned chefs setting up outposts of their Michelin-starred restaurants, such as Wolfgang Puck, Gordon Ramsey and Daniel Boulud.”
Nahla Elmallawany, head of content at Discovery Networks MENA, commented: “Fatafeat is all about bringing great inspiration into the homes and lives of passionate lovers of incredible dishes. Partnering with Singapore Tourism allows us to share the traditional aromatic dishes of Singapore, whilst also diversifying our content offering to our growing audience of foodies who are constantly seeking new inspirations in cuisine.”
With a year-round calendar of food and beverage events, such as the Singapore Food Festival, World Gourmet Summit, and Savour, there is always something to experience beyond brick and mortar restaurants for those who value innovative authenticity, and a true combination of modernity and history. –TradeArabia News Service
