Tiger is synonymous with hosting street food festivals, complete with games and activities, live performances, great selection of street food and, of course, Tiger Beer.
This year, Tiger is taking the street food festival experience to the next level: from the streets, and onto your screens.
The Tiger Street Food Virtual Festival launches at 11am on Friday, Nov 6, and will be open from 11am to 9pm every Friday, Saturday and Sunday until the end of the month.
The world’s first fully-immersive and engaging online experience, users will be able to walk the 3D streets in their own customised avatar, interact with others, play games and visit vendors, before ordering street food directly to their door through DeliverEat, the official delivery partner of the Tiger Street Food Virtual Festival.
After customising a 3D avatar to represent themselves in the virtual world, hit Street Food Central where you can interact with other festival-goers, play games to win rewards, get recommendations on must-try dishes, and find exclusive Happy Hour promotions from Drinkies – Heineken Malaysia Berhad’s at-home beer delivery service.
There are two games to play, with both hosted by familiar faces – YouTuber Lizz Chloe (better known online as Dumpling Soda) and Harvinth Skin. They’ll need your help to complete different challenges, and will reward you with promo codes and even free cartons of Tiger Crystal!
Each week, KL Foodie will show you a selection of 10 must-try dishes available at the Tiger Street Food Festival. Some are crowd favourites and some are hidden gems, while others are limited-editions created exclusively for the festival. Street Food Central also plays host to the Drinkies Bar. Stopping by between 3pm and 5pm will unlock an additional ‘Happy Hour’ promotion, earning you an RM30 discount on purchases of Tiger Beer or Tiger Crystal above RM150.
The Tiger Street Food Virtual Festival kicks off in style at 7pm on Nov 6 with an exclusive live performance by Malaysian hip-hop artist and long-time friend of Tiger Beer, Namewee, beaming in all the way from Taiwan and only available for viewing within the Tiger Street Food Virtual Festival Lumpur.
There’s Kuala Street, Selangor Street, and Penang Street, each filled with a changing array of 88 vendors based in these localities, serving up menus created especially for the Tiger Street Food Virtual Festival. As long as you are within a 15km radius of the vendor, you’ll be able to order these tasty grub to your doorstep while exploring the festival.
The Tiger Street Food Virtual Festival is free, no need to download anything to join the fun, the entire festival experience runs within the browser on your smartphone or laptop.
The Tiger Street Food Virtual Festival is strictly for non-Muslims aged 21 and above only.

Thanks to inspiration and the mastery that comes from experience, the passage of time has revealed the grandeur of Dom Pérignon’s Vintage 2010 . The label plays out its aesthetic and sensorial values: precision, intensity, touch, minerality, complexity and completeness, a way of embracing and …
Johnnie Walker, together with master blender Jim Beveridge, has come up with its latest addition to the fold, Johnnie Walker Aged 15 Years Sherry Finish.
Carefully blended from some of the finest single malts and finished in ex-sherry oak casks that once held sherry from the Jerez region of Spain, the well-balanced whisky has been matured for at least 15 years. The new expression carries a distinct sweetness and depth that belies characteristics synonymous with that region of Spain.
On the nose, there is a slight floral aroma that leads on to a fragrance of baked apples, honey and vanilla without the usual trace of smokiness associated with the label. Expect flavours of candied fruits, dried fruits and coco, exclusive to sherry. This is a classic flavour profile from the Clynelish Distillery, in the highland region of Scotland.
Together with the aromas of fruit cake and dried fruits exclusive to the Glen Elgin Distillery, the depth of flavour ends on notes of honey and candied-fruit that linger after each sip.
The JW 15Y Sherry Finish goes especially well with Asian cuisine, and this was well-illustrated during a six-course specially crafted Chinese menu at One Seafood, Kuala Lumpur. After the brief starters, lunch was launched proper with the Deep Fried Marble Goby with Johnnie Walker Aged 15 Years Sherry Finish Flambé, followed by a mixture of intense and subtle flavours from the other dishes.
“The Johnnie Walker Aged 15 Years Sherry Finish is a fine addition to the Walker family – it showcases the brand’s tireless efforts to push the boundaries of flavour to constantly deliver incomparable experiences. As sherry cask whisky gains popularity among consumers, this new expression will certainly be a favourite among whisky lovers,” said Rajesh Joshi, Marketing Director of Diageo Malaysia.
Guests were also given a short education on the blends within JW15Y Sherry Finish – Cardhu, Glen Elgin and Clynelish – by Chong Wai Keng, Diageo Malaysia Brand Ambassador.
I don’t know why I never ate at Habanna Charbroil Steakhouse before. It’s so nearby, the food is super reasonable and best of all, it celebrates all things porky! Well, better late than never, right?
We tried 3 different dishes and were too stuffed to eat more, so made a note to myself that I should bring the piranhas here again.
First up, in trying to be the conscientious diner who hopes to keep up her fibre intake, we ordered Pancetta Salad (RM18.90). This came with oodles of pork belly meat akin to bacon, COVERING the vegetables. Did I mention how much meat there was? Not stingy bacon bits but actual pancetta slices, sharing its lubricious drippings with the veggie beneath. OK, I’m sold already!
Debating over the pork or beef burger, the server honestly said to try the pork (RM18.90). He could have easily said the latter which was more expensive, and for that I am grateful that he favoured taste instead. It came with a generous portion of fries as well as some more salad, so none can accuse us of being carnivores! The patty was “homemade” (as in made in Habanna-lah), moist and tasty, with enough texture for a good hearty bite without being hard or too dense, and a decent size.
My dinner mates chose Iberico pork belly (RM33.90), which was slightly on the dry side, but still pretty delish, with still enough natural juices contained within to flavour the meat, and the apple sauce at the side made up for it.
They’ve also got chicken choices such as American Charbroiled Chicken and Grilled Spicy Chicken if you’re not into pork, tempting starters like Pork Corn, Pancetta in Love (pig in a blanket) and Grill Bacon Slice, and lamb options like Honey Wine Lamb and Minty Lamb Loin.
Round 2: We popped by again, this time with my other half and No. 3. We had Iberico pork belly again, and this time it was a-mayyy-zing as it was so juicy ‘coz the pieces were fattier so meat had more flavour to it. We had Cajun Belly Salad this time, and it was also good, though I prefer the salty fragrance of the pancetta… I mean, come on, it’s bacon la… how to not lurve, right? No. 3 had the Beef Burger as the Pork Burger had run out and it was a happy second choice as the beef patty revealed layers of flavour and texture, and was worth the calories, not that he was counting … I was!
A glass of house pouring wine is RM15, so it’s even better to order by the bottle. What I like about this place is that it’s a simple, cosy neighbourhood family restaurant without any unpretentious draping and prices are more than reasonable.
