There is such a thing as a free meal -- at least up to Aug 29 at 22 shops and stalls in Malaysia.


MALACCA, Malaysia: Starting this afternoon, the Traditional Malacca Food Festival will be offering free food at selected outlets on a first-come, first-served basis.

The three-week festival is in conjunction with Malacca's successful inclusion in the Unesco World Heritage City list.

Organising committee chairman Gan Tian Loo said the state government had allocated RM500 for each of the 22 places which will be providing a selected menu free of charge on their chosen days.

"In total, we will be spending RM11,000 on the food festival," he said outside the state assembly yesterday.

The festival begins at 12.30pm today at Restoran Nancy's Kitchen in Jalan Hang Lekir. The restaurant will be providing Nyonya spring-rolls (popiah) and cakes.

"Patrons can enjoy the delicacies for free, but if they order other food or drinks that is not on the selected menu, they will have to pay for the additional items.

"Only the Nyonya spring-roll and cakes will be free while stocks last."

He said the state government would place banners at the respective places and strategic locations here to inform the public about the festival, the first of its kind in the state.

The restaurants and eateries participating in the festival are:
