Southeast Asiais by no doubt, a region studded with gems of Food Feasts. It is known for its wide variety of mouth-watering Hawker style street-side, quick bites with an explosion of flavours, tastes and aromas. These authentic local treats still use the traditional technique of cooking and most importantly they are cooked from the heart and soul. They are often described as “Soul Food”. These are the recipes that arrived with the earliest immigrants and are true to their multiracial heritage. The rich heritage of these Hawkers food cuisines will surface to give food lovers an understanding of the cuisine origin history.
