CREATORY 23-24 Aug 2014

By Wednesday, August 20, 2014 ,

#HIPSTERALERT CREATORY, a weekend festival that showcases an integration of Singapore’s top creative minds in the areas of food, music, art, design, architecture, entertainment, beverage and retail is happening right now from 23 - 24 August 2014.

Things are gonna get really delicious at Tasty Plaza where Creatory is going to be located at. Nothing screams more hipster than a repurposed industrial building that house a like-minded community of tenants passionate about the craft of creating tasty products. Oh and guess where it's gonna be? The upcoming hipster enclave Macpherson estate. So yes to the latest local food incubator where factory meets art and design. 

So here is what's up at Creatory. There will be over 40 participating partners presenting innovative food & beverage experiences from some of Singapore’s most popular chefs, restaurants and bars, live art installations, DJ and music performances and also opportunities to attend pop-up workshops.

I'm started with some food and shopping at the same time. Desserts first! Here's an innovative dessert by Artichoke, a coconut ice cream with corn, caramel and fried chicken skin. It works surprisingly!

Then we moved on to the more substantial stuff. The sandwiches from Park Bench Deli was pretty yums. There's the beef pastrami and the braised pork belly, both good options to eat on the go. They may be a little salty but you can always wash it down easily with the alcohol that's everywhere. Or, there's always the trusty FIJIWater to keep you hydrated!

While waiting for our Lim Peh Sliders from South East Sliders, we checked out the edible art created by  Janice Wong of 2am:dessertbar and Desinere.
We happily helped ourselves to the marshmallow clouds and white chocolate petals in the freezing room.
The LIMPEH sliders were worth the wait with the spicy and fragrant beef rendang with nacho cheese. Well the queue speaks for itself. Will be certain to check them out at ION Orchard. Other noteworthy munchies to check out would be the  Japanese roast pork by Preparrazi (very limited qty!) and gourmet sausages by &Sons. 

Shopping for food while eating as usual. Check out The Hunters' nuts and spreads, Joogo cold pressed juices and also homemade granola by Eastern Granola.
I've been in love with the plates from Supermama ever since i saw them and you can grab yours here too! I also spotted my favorite local jewelry brands such as Carrie K. and Saught

After dinner drinks are a must. Well you could get started right from the start actually as there are bars on most levels. But i'd certainly recommend you head to the rooftop for some drinks by 28 Hong Kong and nibbles by Morsels

L'Aiglon made me very happy with their potent drinks as well. For $16/9oz pop, it was on the small side but we were happily buzzed. Operation Dagger is something to watch out for as well (i recently checked them out at their super cool bar).
Also, do not miss KULT's Frankenstein gallery!

Be Hipster, Support Local. And i'll see you guys there this weekend. ;)
