Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to Taste MIGF 2018, a 2-day gastronomy extravaganza event at Berjaya Times Square Hotel Kuala Lumpur, and check out the Malaysia Airports’ booth where they featured its top airport cuisines under the banner of “Taste of Malaysia Airports“.
Bumbu Desa, Fukuya, and Grandmama’s were the 3 featured restaurants showcasing some of their most popular dishes that are a hit with travelers at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). These 3 restaurants were part of the Top 25 winners from last year’s annual KULinary event – a signature dining discovery campaign hosted by Malaysia Airports that celebrates gastronomic excellence and dining experiences at both terminals of the airport, KLIA main terminal and klia2.
Travelers get to sample a variety of exciting F&B offerings that are available at the airport during the annual KULinary event, which include eateries associated with well-established international brands as well as popular local eateries.
Serving traditional Malaysian flavours that bring back the fond memories of grandmothers cooking in the kitchen, Grandmama’s offers travelers a mini Malaysia experience right in the airport. Their Nasi Lemak is a must-try dish for visitors during this Taste MIGF event.
It was my first experience tasting the best of Indonesian cuisine from Bumbu Desa, including their signature dishes like Nasi Tumpeng (a special dish made to celebrate important events), Ikan Bawal Taliwang Lombok (pomfret with special Taliwang Lombok sauce), Ayam Cabai Ijo, Gulai Kikil, and KopiKita (original Indonesian coffee).
For Japanese food lovers, you should not miss Fukuya‘s newly created Hotate Miso Soup which is specially created to celebrate this year Taste MIGF event. Other best sellers to look out for from Fukuya include Unagi Uramaki (deep fried spicy sea eel roll) and Shake Uramaki (deep fried spicy salmon roll), a must-try for those who love authentic Japanese cuisine.
These 3 restaurants will also provide a special menu for its signature dishes at their KLIA outlets throughout the month-long MIGF 2018 celebration in September.
Malaysia Airports senior general manager for Commercial Services, Nazli Aziz said: “We are excited to be part of MIGF 2018 as it serves as a platform for us to highlight our commitment to create enjoyable dining experiences for visitors at our airports. Ultimately, we want to ensure that our airports become preferred destinations for all food lovers out there. This objective is very much in line with our mission of enhancing the Total Airport Experience as we believe food plays an important role in connecting and educating the cultural richness of the community, especially with the variety of exciting F&B outlets that are available at our airports.”
Stay tuned for Malaysia Airports’ upcoming KULinary event at KLIA in November 2018 to discover the best hidden food gems that are available at both terminals of the airport. There will also be lots of fun activities and special meal deals for passengers to enjoy.
“We are proud to showcase several of our winners from last year’s KULinary event, as this serves as a precursor to what the public can expect to savour at this year’s KULinary 2018 event, which we anticipate will be bigger and better than last year,” added Nazli.
