S One Expo Stuttgart (Beer Festival) Germany is held at the Marina at Keppel Bay from 6 November to 9 December. Here are 7 reasons why you should go!
7 Reasons why You should go to S One Expo!
1. Food – Stuttgart fare & Local Delights
You’ll get to experience authentic german food, especially those from Stuttgart such as the Maultaschen (meat dumplings – a traditional Swabian dish), Blackforest Cake as well as the Apple Pudding! Remember to choose the lentils (peas) to go with the Maultaschen, that is unless you’re fans of the cabbage or potato. The lentils have pieces of minced meat which adds to its flavour.
If German food does not ring your taste buds, why not try the array of local delights available? Choose from hawker fare such as laksa, char kway teow, bak kut teh, fried hokkien mee, chicken rice and fried carrot cake. There’s even a soya beancurd/drink store to add to the local flavour!
