Tiger launches Tiger STREATS dining concept


Hawker Chan

Tiger Beer has launched Tiger STREATS, a new dining concept where two chefs who live worlds apart, but share the culinary fame, will join forces for the first time.

A global event, Tiger STREATS launched in Sydney, followed by Auckland, New York City and Kuala Lumpur.

In New Zealand, Tiger STREATS resident Hawker Chan, of the first Michelin-starred hawker stand Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle in Singapore, was paired up with Nick Honeyman, chef of the highly-acclaimed restaurant Paris Butter.

While one chef’s menu might cost $2.50 and the other much more, they combined their raw skills and passion to craft a unique collaborative dish.

As the Tiger STREATS events move across the globe, other top chefs to join Hawker Chan include Guillaume Galliot, chef of two Michelin star restaurant The Tasting Room in Macau, and Christopher Kostow, chef of three Michelin starred The Restaurant At Meadowood.

Senior Marketing Manager International Premium at DB Breweries Julia Imlah says Asian food is made for sharing and Tiger beer is the beer to share with it.

“It’s a full-bodied beer with bite that embraces all the different flavours of our food just as Tiger Beer has always embraced the diverse passions of Asia’s creativity,” she says. “Street food is enjoyed in the heat of the street, where people sit shoulder to shoulder with friends old and new, so Tiger is really excited to be bringing people together in NZ through this campaign”
