Last week, we came across a video “Uncage. Awaken Your Courage”, which features the stories of ImCheah, Jun Chan, and Herukh Jethwani – three Malaysian uncaged heroes from the culinary industry who found the courage to pursue their dreams. The video linked us to something we have been looking forward to – Tiger Uncage Street Food Festival!
We first heard about Tiger Street Food Festival when our friends from Singapore shared with us their visit to the event. It was held in Singapore last June, an evening that celebrated all things about delicious local street food pairing with icy cold Tiger beer, and lots of fun activities.
It was a memorable and successful event. So we thought, how cool if Malaysia has this festival too. And yay! It is happening soon in Malaysia too! In less than a month!
Famous eateries such as myBurgerLab, Porki Society, Ticklish Ribs &’wiches, Makirito Sushi Burito, Prawn Noodle King 蝦面王, Softsrve, Pho King, Butaya Izakaya and more will be joining this special festival, churning out sumptuous delicacies for a tasty-licious experience.
You’ll get to indulge into your favourite street delights, together with Malaysia’s No.1 Beer – Tiger Beer!
What makes Malaysia Tiger Uncage Street Food Festival more special is, food featured are unconventional and interesting, beyond just your usual curry laksa, char koay teow and nasi lemak!
