What do most Malaysians miss most when living abroad? “THE FOOD!”
The Malaysia Festival 2016 was back once again at Trafalgar Square in London. The festival was meant to showcase the country’s food, culture, fashion and tourism, but it was the food stalls that attracted the most attention. Incredibly busy and vibrant on a sunny day in autumn!
There were about 20 food stalls serving on the day itself, offering a variety of dishes that were reasonably priced! At 12pm sharp, the food stalls opened and people rushed in to start their food adventure. I however started the festival with a cooking workshop with Chef Norman Musa instead.
We were brought to a cooking tent and there laid all cooking tools and ingredients for the recipe that we were about to cook: Kapitan Chicken Curry
Chef Norman Musa was really friendly and always asking if we needed help.Once that was finished, went around the square and tried the authentic food.
Had Satay Chicken (£5.00), Beef rendang (£5.00), Mee rebus (£5.00), Tofu Rojak (£5.00), Roti canai (from Roti King), Peanut pancakes, Malay kuihs (6 for £5.00), Coconut shakes and cendol (£3.50).
At 3pm headed to the Hospitality Area to hear a quick speech from the Minister of International Trade & Industry (MITI), Dato’ Sri Mustapa Mohamed.
All in all the festival did not disappoint. Also, thanks to Malaysia Kitchen for the very kind goody bag!
