Deets of Great Eastern LIVE GREAT Run Food Fest:

With a selection of 20 food vendors catering delicious and awesome street food, your belly with scream in happiness. What’s more exciting is that they have invited famous street food from Penang! You don’t have to waste 4 hours’ drive just to taste Penang food. Chill, we know you want more, so prepare yourself for the ultimate food experience.
All the Way from Penang:
1. Nazzeeras Kacang Phool
If you’re a follower of Penang Foodie, you might have seen this video gone viral. Thick, roti bakar served with kacang phool sauce which is made from home-ground spices and blended with loads of peanuts! You can even choose the flavors of roti bakar like garlic or cheese to pair with. We’re talking about some sinful, not-so-typical toasts.
2. Hadi Char Koay Teow
Oh char koay teow, Penang’s staple street food. The long drive just to get your hands on the dark, flavorful plate of wok hei goodness. Up until now, our Muslim friends couldn’t taste it due to pork lard. BUT, Hadi Char Koay Teow will be there, and guess what? It’s Muslim-friendly! We can tell you for sure it tastes just as good as the Chinese version.

3. Chickapollo Fried Chicken
If you think this is another “pasar malam” ordinary fried chicken, we’re here to tell you- you’re wrong. Looks just like the XXL fried chicken cutlets, on the inside is where the magic happens. Take a bite on the crispy fried chicken and you’ll find sauce exploding in your mouth. Yes, it’s lava fried chicken. Devil cheese, salted egg, curry butter are just a few flavors on offer. Drooling no?
Nothing beats Penang’s Asam Laksa, thick mackerel fish broth combined with the refreshing soury finish, so good. D’Laksa delivers that, those who prefer stronger taste will definitely love their laksa. Spicy, soury, with mackerel fish broth, finishing off with prawn paste, there’s nothing to complain about. Plus, they serve laksa fish balls as well! Not to mention their equally great rojak.
5. Merry Me
Have you seen any ice cream joints or outlets with local flavors? No? That’s because you haven’t tasted Merry Me. They have flavors like gula melaka, tau sar piah, kacang tumbuk, tau hua and MORE. Mindblown right? It’s one of the best ice cream outlets in Penang with the dedication to local flavors, salute.
Ok How can Great Eastern LIVE GREAT Run Food Fest have zero KL food? Another round of preview:
1. Healthy Eats- Salad Atelier
With all the heavy, sinful meals, of course, one could also opt for lighter, healthier food, and they have it. Salad Atelier is no stranger in KL, healthy joints focusing on delicious, low-calorie salads. And it’s pretty good, you get a wide range of healthy meals ahead.
2. Healthy Drinks- Granny Doris
You know it’s going to be a long day at Great Eastern LIVE GREAT Run Food Fest. Go for some refreshing, cold-pressed juice. Healthy, sugar-free and 100% real fruit juice. Hey, isn’t it way better than those sugary, fattening and unhealthy club soda?
While this might sound like some fancy atas food, it’s actually very local. It’s ice kepal guys, perfect for the heat and never-ending summer in Malaysia. Cool things up at the Great Eastern Live Great Run Food Fest with a bowl of icy, sweet treat from Julia’s.
