Produced by Jackie M and sponsored by Tourism Malaysia Australia, the series features cooking segments by chefs from MOMC and MOMC@Heart alongside local experts as they cover the different varieties of Malaysian laksa in Series 4, and different types of Malaysian cuisine in Series 5. 

Jackie M. said: “Street Food Journeys Series 4 and 5 are very special because while the first three series were filmed overseas due to closed travel borders, this time around we were finally able to travel to Malaysia to shoot on-location thanks to Malaysia’s borders reopening.”

“Our Masters of Malaysian Cuisine chefs from 7 different countries came together in Malaysia for five weeks to make this happen, and we are just so thrilled to have been able to cook with each other and to share our recipes in the MOMC Magazines that accompany these series.”
