ASEAN Street Food Festival 2015
22 June 2015
On 12 June, ASEAN Women’s Circle (AWC) hosted the ASEAN Street Food Festival 2015 at the ASEAN Secretariat. It was the third culinary festival hosted by AWC after the ASEAN Traditional Culinary Festival last year. This year’s event featured 25 dishes from 16 countries including 10 ASEAN Member States, Japan, China, Republic of Korea, India, New Zealand and the United States. The Festival attracted more than 500 visitors from different embassies, permanent missions, ASEAN Dialogue Partners, and the ASEAN Secretariat.
Japan’s booth, with the help of Mr. Tsuyoshi Sakai, Chef for Ambassador Aiboshi, featured Japan’s most popular home cooking: Hayashi rice. The booth attracted many visitors who were eager to sample the hashed beef with rice.
The Festival was a charity event and all proceeds will be donated to Indonesia’s street children.
