Sep 24: Street Kids Meet & Eat: Hip-Hop Inspired Food
Street Kids Meet & Eat combines hip-hop and eating for the best of both worlds. Paying tribute to hip-hop culture and its relationship with food, the Street Kids crew teams up with Migas to present a menu inspired by influential hip-hop artists and their classic songs of both today and yesteryear.
Expect to feed on colorful dishes such as Wu-Tang C.R.E.A.M. Clam and Queen La Beefah Beef Burger. Or if you’re looking for some southern comfort food, check out the Ludacrispy Fried Chicken Strips or A Pie Called Quest. We’re salivating and nodding our heads just thinking (or typing) about it. The beats are covered by Street Kids’ all-ages friendly DJs, Cad 73 and Ludo V, who will whet your appetite with a selction of soulful tunes to classic R&B. There’s also a hot wing eating competition for those hip-hop heads looking for a little extra spice (or a prize worth RMB600).
