Food Lovers Unite At Tiger STREATS 2016
It was a wild night with over 700 food lovers sitting shoulder to shoulder around the street food table, sharing ice-cold Tiger beers at Tiger STREATS 2016. Again I could not make it for this, but hey, thankfully there were loads of photos shared with me, which I will be publishing here today on this post of mine. Held at a vibrant street meets fine dining pop-up restaurant, MH Platinum Warehouse in Setapak, guests were in for a dramatic mash-up between two chefs who are worlds apart, but share the honour of a Michelin Star fame in the culinary world.

Street Food Meets Fine Dining
The world’s first ‘street food meets fine dining’ culinary collaboration featured Hawker Chan, of the first hawker stand to win a prestigious Michelin Star - Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle in Singapore and Jeff Ramsey, former Executive Chef at the Michelin-starred Mandarin Oriental Tokyo hotel, and current owner and chef of progressive modernist restaurant Babe KL.

Guests were treated to a menu of contrasts by both chefs starting with appetisers by Chef Ramsey called ‘Down the Rabbit Hole’ an intriguing take on well-loved local favourites nasi lemak and roti banjir. This was followed by ‘Laksa Injections’, tubes packed with the flavours of three types of laksa.

Hawker Chan’s signature Chicken Rice was next on the menu, giving the crowd a chance to taste the dish which attracted the attention of the Michelin judges. Those with a sweet tooth found delight in the dessert, a collaboration between Hawker Chan and Chef Ramsey called ‘Two Makes a Blossom’.

Tiger STREATS Inspired Yee Sang
That night, guests were presented with an unexpected Tiger STREATS inspired Yee Sang dish in conjunction with the commencement of Tiger Beer’s Chinese New Year 2017 campaign. Read more about this in my subsequent post. Prepared with a new twist on tradition to kick off the new lunar year, the Yee Sang dish was filled with unexpected ingredients such as dried prawn crackers and satay sauce for added abundance and prosperity in the year ahead.

Guests were in for another surprise when the hawker stations were revealed, offering everyone more food to enjoy. Prepared by renowned food establishments in Malaysia - Tujo Bar-sserie & Grill, Chocha Foodstores, Hoppers, and Inside Scoop - the hawker stations carried contemporary interpretations of local street food where guests were able to have a bite of traditional food with a touch of modernity.
