Indulge in the Best of Spain in Singapore with Eat Spain, Drink Spain Campaign 2023

Get ready for a month-long celebration of Spanish gastronomy! From October 15th to November 15th, a campaign called "Eat Spain, Drink Spain," by the ICEX Spain Trade & Investment will be showcasing Spain's finest culinary treasures in Singapore. Building on a history of success in markets like Germany and the UK, this campaign promises a delightful experience for everyone who loves Spanish food and drinks as much as I do.

Other than tastings for F&B industry folks, there are also retail promotions and most importantly, promotions in bars & restaurants.

Discover the essence of Spain in 16 certified bars and restaurants (check out 8 of them in part 1 of my Certified Restaurants from Spain post). Through special menus, promotions, and events, they'll transport you to the heart of Spanish culinary traditions.

Here are 8 special events on key dates you won't want to miss!
