A quick roundup is in order for the inaugural World Street Food Congress and Seetoh says:
Above and beyond the meeting of foodies the world over, the networking and the eating, the most important issue to have emerged from the WSF Congress is that street food has the power to fight poverty and create social change! With the right skills, training and passion AND the support of governments, running a street food stall can help the displaced or marginalised create a means of supporting themselves.
And, here are some of Denise’s favourite moments from the WSF Congress:
Claus Meyer of Denmark’s Noma & Nam Nam fame http://www.clausmeyer.dk/en/ sharing with us his passion of food at the dialogue session – that’s his creation on the right, the porc sandwich which you can try at the World Street Food Jamboree – Stall 1! The adorable fellas behind Abishek Chicken 65 who travelled for ages to get here to share their delicious fried chicken with us.
Talking about how #gold90fm connects with listeners through street food culture at the #worldstreetfoodcongress dialogue, then eating my way through 10 countries at the jamboree! Stall 14 from Indonesia – best! Try their banana fritters with smoked fish sambal.
Denise’s Faves, clockwise from top left: Stall 14 – Tamba’la Manado’s Pisang Roa (battered banana & smoked fish sambal!), Stall 4 – Hoy Tord Chao Lay’s Hoy Tord (crispy seafood omelette), Stall 25 – Abishek’s Chicken 65 (spicy deep-fried chicken), Stall 1 Meyer’s Kokken’s Porc Sandwich (char-grilled pork belly, cider-marinated red cabbage, crunchy apple slices, crackling) and Stall 27 – Swamp Shack’s Shrimp & Grits (crunchy corn meal battered prawns served with a fresh tomato sauce and creamy grits which look a lot like mashed potatoes!).
After all the stress & craziness of the WSF Congress, this is what Seetoh turns to for comfort – a perfectly balanced bowl of dry Bak Chor Mee from…
