The second edition of Open Stoves features collaborations between young, new-generation hawkers and restaurant chefs. A total of nine pairs of chefs made up of Timbre+ food partners and invited guest chefs will collaborate and come up with their specially curated off-menu dishes.

  • Chef Bernie Utchenik (Big Bern’s American Grill) and Chef Ken Tan (Fusion Western)
  • Chef Teppei Yamashita (Teppei Daidokoro) with Chef Kai Koh (Roast Paradise)

Some of the collaboration dishes are Crispy Braised Duck Burger, a quintessential Modsin burger by Chef Deming and Chef Melvin Chew; Hokkien Mee, French Bouillabaisse Broth Style and Fresh Seafood by Chef Alexander Chong and Chef Walter; Vietnamese Pork Chop Fragrant Rice with Hainanese Curry by Chef Belinda Tay and Chef Lim Jia Han; Coconut Cream Prawn Croquette Sandwich with Laksa Cheese by Chef Wing and Chef Gwern; and Prawn Paste Chicken Thigh with Spinach Noodles by Chef Kelly Wong and Chef Nicholas Teo.

Already drooling? We can understand why.

Aside from chef collaborations, look out for roving cameras where exclusive behind the scenes and chefs’ interviews are broadcast live during the three-day event. Mobile carts with beers from the Bottle Shop will on site, bringing rounds of drinks to you without having to leave your table.

Out at the Courtyard, Wok This Way takes place from 5pm every evening where three live wok stations, helmed by Timbre+ resident food partner CHAR Express and two other external wok masters to create a street food market atmosphere, filled with Wok-Hei, a Cantonese term to describe the fragrant aftertaste of wok-fried goodness. Beanbags and inflatable sofas, complete with an outdoor bar sets the atmosphere for a great chill-out under the stars!

Little tots, look forward to bouncy castle, chalkboard doodling corner, water sensory play zone and face painting on 29 and 30 July from 5pm! Adults, have a go at Big Games such as giant Jenga, Connect-Four, Beer-Pong which are available across 28 to 30 July from 5pm. Get nostalgic at the Retro Arcade Zone with old school arcade games or for the more adventurous, food and drinks stage games such as Beer Chug and Iron Stomach Eating Competition await.

Of course, Timbre’s resident bands SuperSonic, O.K READY! will take the stage on Friday and Saturday respectively and you grooving to their energetic repertoire. Come Sunday, acoustic music will fill your hears and you unwind with a bottle of beer.

With a variety of great food coupled with great music and entertainment, the second edition of Open Stoves is set to bring you on a gastronomic adventure. Mark your calendars today and rope in your friends and family for a weekend of indulgence!
