PENANG: There’s one thing the participating Penang Famous Street Food Fest hawkers would never compromise – the standard of their cooking and the quality of their food. 

Sisters’ char koay teow seller Lam Miew Hong said she would bring along the “special” wok she had been using for 10 years to ensure diners get to savour the fried rice noodles' authentic taste.  

Thirty hawkers would serve their best-loved street food, halal and non-halal, at the fest on Saturday in conjunction with Starwalk’s 30th anniversary at the Penang International Sports Arena (Pisa) in Bayan Lepas. 

Lorong Seratus Tahun curry mee stall owner Andrew Moey said the chilli paste would be freshly ground so as not to compromise on the quality of the dish.

Penang Road Teochew cendol seller Tan Chong Kim would promote his bestsellers – cendol, ais kacang and pegaga (a type of herb) juice. 

Twelve of the 30 hawkers were featured in the Famous Street Food of Penang: A Guide and Cook Book published by Star Publications (M) Bhd. The book will be available at the fest at a 20% discount from its normal price of RM28. 

Entertainment will include belly dancing, hip-hop and breakdance performances by Let’s Dance Dancers sponsored by Pallas.  

Entry is free for the 6pm - 10pm event. 

Mystery gifts will be given to the first 30 visitors born in 1978. They need to bring their MyKad for verification.
