George Town Festival 2010 Revisited

The George Town Festival 2011 is less than 24 hours away. The event is held annually in the month of July to celebrate the anniversary of the declaration of George Town as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Since today is the eve of the festival’s first day, we thought we would share some of our photos from last year’s festival.

Everyone's eagerly awaiting the free vadai

There were handicraft and cultural stalls too as well as other forms of street entertainment. We especially liked the modern Nyonya Kebaya and the Manek Kasut displays.

There were street performers to entertain the children too!

Real Char Kway Teow vs Wannabe

I have recently been spending some time in a nearby island republic.  During my stay, my mind at meal times would always stray to the food that I missed most – Penang streetfood! My misery was made worse one night  when I decided to take a chance and try the “Penang Char Kway Teow” served at an establishment supposedly famed for its version of Penang’s most famous dish.

This is NOT Char Kway Teow

As you can imagine, I was bitterly disappointed. Can you tell the why I was disappointed from the image above?

Naturally, I had to make up for it the moment I landed back in Penang. The result was an overindulgent dinner that contributed a kilogram or two to my prosperity.

The luscious, juicy prawns were sinful

A break from Street Food – The 1st Penang International Gourmet Festival

It has been low key, but Penang has certainly got its act together by organising the first Penang International Gourmet Festival (PIGF) from 22 December 2010 until 2 January 2011.  The PIGF is one of the highlights of the Ministry of Tourism’s Fabulous Food 1Malaysia programme.  And I must say the PIGF is an interesting diversion from Penang’s famous street food, a fine dining experience.
