 “Pasar Malam” will unfold a festival of Malay food and delicacies that is a gourmet’s delight and is designed to project a ‘hawker street ambience’ festival fair, with a choice of traditional Malay Food, exciting handicrafts and food-related items on sale as well. Live demonstrations and sharing of exotic recipes will provide the visitors with an exciting and memorable experience.

Ladies of the ASEAN countries, whose Embassy or High Commissions are based in Colombo, will also take part in this culinary festival to showcase an international choice of food.

    Great organising. Please give more preference for food items such as Malay pickle, Sathay, Chuka, Babath with pittu, Nasi goreng, Dodol etc. Also reward the best Malay costume.
