Imagine going to Thailand and finding some of our local favourites such as nasi lemak, murtabak and apam balik. You'll definitely won’t feel homesick anymore, right?
Well, your wish may come true soon.
The Ministry of Agriculture and Agro-Based Industry is reportedly looking forward to promoting Malaysian street food at popular tourism areas in Thailand.
According to a report in Bernama
, the idea came about after the Ministry received encouraging response at the Malaysia Fest 2019 held in Bangkok last week.
The Ministry's deputy secretary-general (development) Datuk Salim Parlan told the news agency that the fest had featured a street food promotion, and the promotion was very well received by locals and foreigners alike.
The tour, which is currently in Hatyai, showcases 68 food stalls offering some of the more popular Malaysian food such as nasi lemak, mee kolok Sarawak and asam pedas.
If Salim gets his wish, we will soon see Malaysian favourites at popular tourist destinations such as Phuket and Krabi.
Let's make this happen, guys!
