Yay! It’s time for food once again. The much-anticipated Asian International Food & Culture Festival is now in Ipoh! Beginning yesterday, this food and culture fare is open for a total of ten days, but don’t wait till the last minute to try out these delicacies.

This is because with about sixty stalls offering a wide array of food (pork free) and beverages not only from Malaysia but also neighbouring Asian countries such as China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia, Korea and more, one or two days are definitely insufficient to sample all the delicious food here!

Those who have travelled to countries in the neighbourhood may find these street fare familiar but somehow they taste better when served at our doorstep! Don’t you think so?

When I arrived at about 8pm, the venue was already teeming with people who were looking for dinner. It was definitely a struggle trying to move about to bring these shots to you.

I had wanted to get my supper but the queue for cash cards was extremely long. Forget it, I’ll go there again tonight and make sure I have enough time to wait out the queue, for both the cash cards and the food!

Yup, some of the snacks had caught my eye, particularly the Taiwan Coffin Bread. By the way, I still haven’t plucked up my courage to try to stomach the stinky tofu!

Oh, I think this Asian Food Festival would be more complete if creepy crawlies were served. You know, items like scorpions, tarantulas, lizards and worms. Hahaha!
