Gourmet is not usually the first word that comes to mind when I describe street food in Malaysia. Food Bites, however, is changing that. On May 26th, at Jaya One, the first ever Food Bites Curbside Gourmet market was presented. Home chefs from around KL set up stands and delighted attendees with their gourmet treats. Nine vendors, Crumbs Cafe, Haute Dog, espresso LAB, Frontera, Lexy Fudge Brownies, The Potong, Transparent Apron, The Fat Blossom and Tartart shared their culinary skills with a hungry crowd. Beginning at 11am, signs of success were clear a short two hours later with most stalls sold out, left with mere crumbs as the only clue that something delicious had passed.
Each stall was hand selected and approved by a meticulous event organizer. Advice was given on pricing, presentation and the food itself. All entries were based on their ability to provide a unique and quality offering to the public. This heedful attention to detail paid off as the event was a roaring success. Without mentioning all nine stands, espressoLAB with their smooth South American blend of coffee and, The Potong with their Poached Pear in Red Wine popsicle, triggered my endorphins. Hubby on the other hand, hoed into the Transparent Apron’s swine soiree. Even the long wait time was appeased once the juicy sausages and sweet potato shoestring fries were devoured. A warm thanks is extended to Bangsar Babe for her support and information regarding this event.
