During the end of December last year, Tiger Beer held a one-of-a kind culinary experience where over 700 food lovers were invited to check out their 'Tiger Streats' event (A wordplay on Street a treats geddit geddit???)
Held at a pop-up restaurant event space, MH Platinum Warehouse in Setapak, one would be easily mistaken that they were at some hawker street lane at Jalan Pudu
So what's the treat you ask? Tiger Beer brought in a Michelin Starred Chef. Hawker Chan. One of the first hawker stand operator that won a pretigious Michelin Star. For his Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle in Singapore. As well as Jeff Ramsey, former Executive Chef at the Michelin-starred Mandarin Oriental Tokyo hotel and current owner and chef of progressive modernist restaurant Babe KL
The dish with a Michelin Star. Hawker Chan's Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice. Much awesome I must say. Couldn't get enough of it that night.
Guests were welcomed to mess about with the marquee words
"Laksa Injections" By Chef Jeff Ramsay. Prawns skewered in tubes packed with the flavors of three types of Laksa
'Down the Rabbit Hole' by Chef Jeff Ramsey, a rather intriguing take on nasi lemak and roti banjir, personally I found this a little too eccentric for my tastebud
There was a Tikam Wall where you could win prizes depending on what combination of numbers you get from the paper on the wall
Some of the nostalgic-esque prizes that could be gotten that night. My personal favorite being Choki-Choki. I used to suck of them all the time during school ;-)

As the night went on, we were served with a special Tiger STREATS inspired Yee Sang! In conjunction with the commencement of Tiger Beer's Chinese New Year 2017 campaign. Instead of the usual ingredients, it was served with dried prawn crackers and satay sauce.
Indeed a night to be remembered, not only were we served with great food but there were also performances by Tiger Jams finalists, Rozella and Son of a Policement to keep the crowd entertained.
Commenting on the event, Tiger Beer Marketing Manager, Jessie Chuah said, “It is an honour to have two renowned chefs as part of our Tiger STREATS campaign and to see food lovers from all walks of life sitting together around the table, making unexpected new connections. Having scrumptious food accompanied by ice cold Tiger brews just adds to the celebration.”
