Social Pics: Tiger Street Eats Roars into Town Transporting Guests to Singapore
Last night Tiger Street Eats rolled into town for the much anticipated opening night of the Michelin starred street food experience, the first evening of its three-day residency.
MART Creative Hub in Portobello was transformed into a Singaporean street food adventure for the sold out event, a collaboration between Tiger Beer and Hawker Chan Hon Meng, owner of the first Michelin starred hawker stand, Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle in Singapore.
Under naked neon and glowing lanterns, Hawker Chan Hon Meng prepared his world-famous Michelin starred street food dish for guests to enjoy alongside a refreshing Tiger beer, which itself was first brewed in the melting-pot of Singapore and raised on the streets.
A global event, Tiger Street Eats was first launched in Sydney and has travelled to Auckland, New York City and Kuala Lumpur.
The Dublin residency is the first time Hawker Chan Hon Meng has cooked his famous street food in Europe.
Hosted by Mike Sheridan guests were treated to complimentary Tiger Beer upon arrival and taken through a Singaporean street food experience with DJ Nialler9 on the decks. Guests on the night included Ireland rugby internationals, Rob and Dave Kearney and Cian Healy as well as Leinster fly-half Noel Reid.
Other guests who share an ice-cold Tiger beer at the street-food tables included comedian and chef Marcus O’Laoire and Spin 1038’s Thomas Crosse and 2FM’s Louise McSharry.
A live art battle between Dublin street artists Barry Finnegan and Niall O’Lochlainn who created bespoke graffiti murals using Air-Ink™, the world’s first ink created from air pollution.
Air Ink™ is a global initiative championed by Tiger Beer that so far has seen over 770 litres of Air-Ink™ harvested – the carbon emissions equivalent of continuously driving a typical diesel vehicle for 2.3 years.
