Street Food Meets Fine Dining with Tiger STREATS @ MH Platinum Warehouse

Last Saturday, the MH Platinum Warehouse in Setapak was transformed into a pop-up dining attended by over 700 food lovers. 

The dark setting with old school vibes truly brings out the nostalgic feels.

There's also a huge "Tikam" wall for us to try our luck on winning some prizes.

We are in for a dramatic mash-up between two chefs who are worlds apart, but share the honour of Michelin Star fame in the culinary world. This is the world’s first ‘street food meets fine dining’ culinary collaboration featuring 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. 

First dish of the night, appetiser by Chef Ramsey named Down the Rabbit Hole is 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.


Another highlight of the night, Hawker Chan’s signature Soy Sauce Chicken Rice was next on the menu. I am truly honoured to have the chance to taste this. I heard the queue in Singapore was so crazy that even my Singaporean friend yet to try it out. It was really amazing, perfectly braised and flavourful.

Dessert is a collaboration between Hawker Chan and Chef Ramsey called Two Makes a Blossom’. The 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. There's also fermented roselle with its syrup served coupled with a mint garnishing to topped off this breezy dessert.

As the night went on, we were then presented with an unexpected Tiger STREATS inspired Yee Sang dish with a twist in conjunction with the commencement of Tiger Beer’s Chinese New Year 2017 campaign. 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. What an interesting combination!

Other hawker stations are manned by renowned food establishments in Malaysia such as Tujo Bar-sserie & Grill, Chocha Foodstores, Hoppers, and Inside Scoop also there to offer us more food to enjoy. The hawker stations carried contemporary interpretations of local street food where we are able to have a bite of traditional food with a touch of modernity. 

It was truly a wonderful 'makan' session with the ice cold booze. Alongside the great food, we were also entertained with amazing performances by Tiger Jams finalists, Rozella and Son of a Policeman. And not to mention, the fun, engaging activities and games.

Good foods and fun moments, it was indeed a night to be remembered. Thank you Tiger Beer for having me. For more information on Tiger STREATS, please visit Tiger Beer’s Facebook page
