Where the Streets have no name..

What is it about Malaysian Street food that I am so proud of? Is it the fact that I can eat any-time of the day, even after a late night out and it’s midnight, but the streets are still thumping with food vendors flipping a “Roti” or an old man frying up a Hokkien Noodle? Is it the fact that the food is passed down from Grandpa to Son and sometimes even to grandson? Or is it for the simple fact that I have to be proud.. I need to be proud in order to make sure that such an important part of my heritage, my Malaysian culture never fades?

I think all of the above!

S0 it is with great pride that we were recently asked to be partners in crime with Friedchillies, in the “Love Your Street Food Campaign” , which was aimed at giving recognition to street food vendors and their lore. According to Friedchillies, Street Food is something that deserves your attention, your votes and a place in their very own Hall of Fame.. and we totally agree!

The LOVE your street Food campaign ran from the 1st October 2010 to 30th November 2010. This weekend the Winners for the Annual Foodsters’ Awards were announced at a cozy little restaurant that serves Malay food, called Wau Penyu. Prior to this event, all Malaysian food bloggers, foodies  and just anybody who cares about Malaysian Streetfood were called to vote on the website and here are the winners!
