When it comes to street food, South East Asia is definitely THE place to be. After all, ASEAN countries are totally food havens, so is it any surprise that we would top almost any kind of food lists around the world?
Just recently, the 2017 World Street Food Congress awarded 6 Malaysian food stalls and 14 Singaporean food stalls into their top 50 list!
Vendors that made it to the list were judged based on a number of factors such as their mode of operations like ingredient sourcing, food prep, hygiene level, quality of food, as well as their ability to inspire and create opportunities.
Both Malaysian and Singaporean food managed to beat loads of other street foods from around the world – including those from the United States and Mexico. Steady lah, bro…
Malaysia’s Top 6 street vendors are:
- Line Clear Nasi Kandar (No.9)
- Siam Street Char Kuey Teow (No.14)
- Fauzi Nasi Kerabu (No.23)
- Nyonya Mee Siam Donald and Lily’s (No.34)
- Guan Heong Biscuit Shop (No. 36)
- Jalan Kuli Satay (No. 43)
We couldn’t agree more with this list as Line Clear Nasi Kandar is by far the best nasi kandar spot in the whole of Malaysia while there is no where else with better char kuey teow than the stall at Siam Street. Of course, these street stalls are mostly found in Penang and Melaka!
Although Jalan Kuli Satay has got some super delicious pork satay, no chicken or beef satay will ever beat the ones from Kajang. I mean, Kajang is satay heaven after all! #cintasatay
Surprisingly tho, a tiny country like Singapore achieved way more spots than any other country that was listed.
Singapore’s Top 14 are:
- Hill Street Tai Wah Bak Chor Mee (No.1)
- Chey Sua Fried Carrot Cake (No.10)
- Master Tang Wanton Mee (No.16)
- An Ji Sang Mee (No.24)
- Tan’s Kueh Tutu (No.26)
- KEK Seafood (No.28)
- Hoy Yong Cze Cha Seafood (No.30)
- Sin Kee Famous Chicken Rice (No.33)
- Hwa Heng Beef Noodle (No.40)
- Kim’s Hokkien Fried Mee (No.42)
- Soon Wah Fishball Kway Teow Mee (No.44)
- Heng Kee Curry Chicken Noodle (No.45)
- Nasi Ambeng Dapur Ummi (No.48)
- Ah Lim Oyster Omelet (No.50)
Yes, some of these foods are pretty similar to Malaysia’s but Singapore has got their own twist to each dish! For example, the Hokkien mee that most Malaysians are familiar with is black in colour while Singapore’s is white.
Other countries that made it to this list are Thailand, Taiwan, China, India, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam.
