Red Herring Malaysian Dinner / A Vegan Night

Where else would you get Malaysian food apart from MaSA members? Nowhere else but Red Herring Vegan Restaurant! The Red Herring Vegetarian Restaurant has been serving up delicious vegan/vegetarian food to the Urbana-Champaign community for over thirty years. Every Wednesday, they would collaborate with Registered cultural student organizations of UIUC to introduce their culture's cuisines through a volunteering act.

On Wednesday, October 16th, 2013 MaSA has collaborated with Red Herring Restaurant to bring about a night filled with laughter, healthy vegan food and wonderful cultural performances.

The event started at 5:00 pm but we had people coming in as early as 4:45 pm. People are all excited to taste some Malaysian food which is not easily available here in Chambana. The menu for the day was salad with peanut sauce as an appetizer,"Mee Goreng Mamak" with tauhu and tempe for the main dish and "sagu with gula Melaka" for desserts. All this for $7! Isn’t that great?
Apart from good Malaysian food, we also had several performances by our very own members. The first performance was from our incredible duo, Zaza Fahmeeda Mohd Zaineen and Diyana Najwa Nor Azmi. Together they performed two of Yuna songs which are “Lelaki” and "Rocket". The crowds which were mostly made up of non-Malaysians loved it!

The night continued with more performances from the Fantastic Four which is made up of Nur Syahirah Mohd Shaipudin, Liyanaa Athira Baharuddin , Fatihah Ahmad Fauzi, and last but not the least Muazr Amer Hamzah. These four energetic freshmen performed a traditional dance called “Endang “ and a song entitled “Dan Sebenarnya” also by Yuna. 

The event went on from 5:00-8:00pm and a total of 130 people came within those 3 hours. Everyone was all smiles as they dine in with friends while enjoying convivial and entertaining live performances. All in all, the event was a success and everyone present had fun!
