Tiger STREATS Gathered Foodies Under One Roof For an Intriguing Culinary Experience ft. Michelin-starred Street Food Chef Hawker Chan & Contemporary Chef Jeff Ramsey

Over 700 food lovers sat shoulder to shoulder around the street food table, sharing ice-cold Tiger beers at Tiger STREATS. 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 ;)

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 b^^d

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 b^^d Those with a sweet tooth found delight in the dessert, a collaboration between Hawker Chan and Chef Ramsey called ‘Two Makes a Blossom’. This culinary masterpiece, created exclusively for Tiger STREATS, featured an aromatic combination of Asian pears with a rosewater and honey mousse that enhanced the homely taste of the classic flower jelly. Fermented Roselle and its syrup coupled with a mint garnishing topped off this breezy dessert.
