About Kita

Kita Food Festival is an exploration and celebration of food in Southeast Asia.

Through a series of curated dinners, collaboration cook ups, symposiums and CSR programmes, Kita aims to spotlight chefs, producers, flavours, and food innovators, while offering inspiration and skills to the younger generation, and a platform for discussing consumption and the future of food.

Kita means “us” or “we” in Malay, a nod to the festival’s origins in Malaysia. This highlights the festival’s inclusive nature, regardless of race, colour, creed, or socio-economic status. It appreciates that in the act of eating, the production of food and caring for an ecologically sound future, the festival’s main themes – we are one.

Kita is a community.


A Brief Outline Of Kita Events

Dining Events


From exclusive, indulgent, once-in-a-lifetime “multi-hand” dining collaborations to fun- often quirky- and vitally, easy-on-the-wallet party pop-ups.

Multi-Chef Communal Cook-Up

Communal cook-ups with multiple chefs working together to produce tasty but unfussy tapas dishes with a side of grooving tunes and relaxed vibes.



A free-to-attend skills-strengthening program for select junior chefs designed to broaden their horizons and positively build and strengthen the industry.

Kita Conversations

A platform for chefs, producers and F&B industry leaders to converge and discuss the topics and issues that are shaping their world today.


“I love the purpose of the Kita Food Festival. Promoting Southeast Asian F&B in a fun and meaningful way makes it very different from other festivals in the region. My favourite part of 2022 was definitely Kita Conversations, which discussed important subjects that need to be addressed now. Our industry is changing in so many different ways. It is time to address these changes.”
