Where: Trafalgar Square, London
What is it?
Malaysia Night is a free festival taking place in London’s Trafalgar Square on Friday 26th September. The Malaysia Night event is created by Matrade (Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation) and aims to celebrate the best of Malaysian cuisine and culture.
The popular festival, returning for the fifth year, will see Trafalgar Square transform into a bustling marketplace, complete with the vibrant sights, smells and sounds of Malaysia. Malaysia Night embraces and celebrates the uniqueness of Malaysia and showcases the very best of the country to Londoners and visitors alike.
Over 20 of the UK’s best Malaysian restaurants will be showcasing their authentic gastronomic delights for visitors to buy, from already popular dishes such as Laksa and Satay through to the more unusual such as Ais Kakang, a delicious red bean iced dessert. An authentic bustling Malaysian marketplace, offering ingredients such as sauces, spices and pastes for sale, will give Londoners the opportunity to recreate authentic tasting dishes at home.
Along with the chance to sample dishes, there will also be a series of live cookery demonstrations taking place throughout the night from well-known and respected chefs. Visitors can enjoy live entertainment from singers, dancers and a DJ, as well as view art from up and coming Malaysian artists.
