Penang, the state known for it’s massive and diverse food culture is back with Penang International Food Festival (PIFF) 2018 and it’s bigger than ever this year! Happening on Friday, 20 April 2018, The Saw Emporium is partnering with PIFF to bring y’all a day full of crisp with Crispy Fryday (We love the pun).
There are going to be rows of street vendors that’ll bring you colourful local flavours, from the ever-crunchy banana fritters, keropok lekor, muruku by Ah Boy Pisang Goreng at Penang Road, to the sticky signature rojak sauce by Hock Seng Rojak King at Lebuh Macallum.
