One attraction is the Secret Ingredients Travelling Exhibition, held at the B1 Fountain Square from 22 July to 22 August. The exhibit spotlights a variety of Singapore’s heritage dishes from Hainanese chicken rice to laksa, the ingredients that have shaped them, and how these dishes have contributed to moulding the culture of the Singaporean Chinese.
