Are you ready for the World Street Food Congress party in Manila on April 20-24, 2016?

The World Street Food Congress (WSFC) is a symposium, conference and a mega-street feasting festival that celebrates and seeks opportunities and possibilities for the world’s most popular food culture – heritage and comfort street food. The WSFC is not just about comfort food and deliciousness. The WSF Dialogue component is about addressing issues of preservation, sustainability, relevance and the world of opportunities we can create tomorrow. The third installation of the WSFC2016 sails from Singapore to the Bonifacio Global City (BGC) in Metro Manila, Philippines, after two successful runs in the Lion City (2013 and 2015). http://www.wsfcongress.com
