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.

The PIGF showcases the best of European, Fusion and Modern Asian cuisine in Penang. The booklet outlines the 28 participating outlets and the chefs responsible for the menus during the festival period.  For tourists, the Rapid Penang bus routes have also been listed for convenience.
