Each of these 30 restaurants showcases selected dishes from their specially crafted MIGF menu for the guests to sample yesterday. The crowd that jostled for the food makes you forget that this is a posh event. Well, I guess that’s cos the food must be really good! 😉



One particular station had a pole dancer gyrating  the whole night. I wasn’t too sure the crowd at the station is mesmerized by the food or the dancer. 😉

So get your wallets ready, check your calendar & make a date with one of the restaurants this coming October!

    the fish soup from cambodia not as good as in cambodia itself..but generally MIGF gala have a good spread.would be better if the food was served hot and not reheated. thats why should go and try each restaurant during the oct month

      I agree. The food is not a good indication of the actual dish.
