IT’S here guys! Malaysia’s biggest Nasi Lemak feast of the year is coming from all over Malaysia and will serve you the nation’s top nasi lemak vendors.
Organized by food website friedchillies.com under ‘I Eat Nasi Lemak’ event, 40 nasi lemak vendors under one roof will be serving you.
Also, this time around it features vendors from outside the Klang Valley such as Malacca, Negeri Sembilan, Johor, Penang and Perak.
CEO of FriedChillies, Adly Rizal said that they had only 10 vendors in 2013 and the numbers increased by double the following year.
“In 2014, I Eat Nasi Lemak set a record as a non-stop 8-hour food event, which attracted over 15,000 nasi lemak fans, who ate over 25,000 plates and sides of nasi lemak. With this year being the biggest one yet, it is a true testament of our love for this national dish,” said Adly.
“This is definitely an homage for these vendors that have stood the test of time and bringing so much joy to people with their nasi lemak,” he added.
This year, the event will be supporting a charity programme, The Nasi Lemak Project (TNLP) which started in 2012 and part of their programme is to help urban poor families be enterprisingly self-sufficient via selling nasi lemak.
