Halalfoodhunt.com Co-Organises First Ever Ultimate Satay Challenge in Singapore
by Halalfoodhunt Jan 06, 2017
Halalfoodhunt.com had successfully ended an event in partnership with Singapore Kindness Movement and ieatishootipost.com. The event was covered on Berita Mediacorp. See the article and TV coverage here.
The first time satay masters compete!
The team was responsible for contacting satay vendors and getting them to agree to compete. As this was the first time that satay masters would be brought together in one place to compete, it was not very easy to secure eight satay masters. Our team had to work week after week calling satay masters to convince them, and even going to the hawker centres to talk to them as many are not responsive via email. In the end, the eight who were brave enough to step were:
- Haron Satay
- Jamil Sate Classic
- Lina Satay
- Hungry Bazterdz
- Ugly Duckling
- Satay Power 6
- Kam Satay
- Salam Satay Inc
halalfoodhunt.com listed merchants given preference to set up booth for free rental
As Singapore Kindness Movement also wanted pre-packed food vendors and drink vendors at the event, first dibs went to our listed merchants. The merchants which took up the opportunity were:
- Hungry Bazterdz (serving Nomad the Gallant drinks)
- Sunday Sourdough
- Kaw Kaw SG by Makanstate
The merchants could have the opportunity to donate part of their proceeds to charity for a 2.5 times tax deduction on the amount donated.
Judges had a tough choice
The halalfoodhunt.com team also secured two of the four judges. They are: 1. Adam Shah, of halalfoodblog.com 2. Chef Kamal Fondueman, of Singapore Halal Culinary Federation
And the winners are...
