So okay, I’ve checked out Tastefully Food Expo in MVEC earlier, and as a food lover, I must say that the expo does not disappoint. Yes. It was overly crowded and can be quite overwhelming. But most expos are just as crowded and here’s a quick guide on some not to be missed things in the expo:

1. Cooking demo. There are plenty of cooking demo over here in Tastefully Food Expo. But do check out the OKK booth, featuring all things vegetarians. You can sample loads of mock meat and learn how to cook em too.

2. Sampling the the cakes. Don’t forget to sample some cakes and cookies. There are plenty around but here’s one that I think is pretty good; Wonderful Cake House(Booth 253).

There are loads of Japanese food and goodies over here. The best part? It is in Ringgit and doesn’t exactly cost that much. But Muslim consumers might need to be more alert here.

Not everything sold here are Muslim friendly, especially Ramen. So please read up the label and be extra mindful before you make a purchase.

5. Can’t live without instant noodles? They are not the healthiest. Why not try these gems from On Lee Noodles instead?

These noodles have no preservatives and made strictly with natural flavourings.

6. Do away with smoking and vaping and go for Dragonbreath nitrogen biscuits instead.
