Tourism Malaysia’s Australian Director, Roslan Abdullah, together with Malaysia Airlines, officially launched the fifth consecutive Flavours of Malaysia Festival at the Grace Hotel in Sydney last week.
More than 150 guests were treated to a Malaysian banquet prepared by four Malaysian chefs, who were flown in from Kuala Lumpur especially for the event.
From today until 12 October, diners can devour some of the Malaysia’s favourite dishes at Sydney’s Grace Hotel, as part of the Flavours of Malaysia celebration.
The culinary event celebrates the diversity of Malay gastronomy including Chinese, Indian and Portuguese influences.
During the fortnight-long festival, the hotel’s brasserie restaurant will be transformed into an aromatic hub, serving guests buffet-style meals.
Head Chef Tan Kok Siong and his team will produce dishes from different Malaysian regions, ranging from specialty dishes to traditional food.
Mr Abdullah also announced 2015 as Malaysia’s official Year of Festivals, following from this year’s successful Visit Malaysia campaign, which has seen a rise in tourism numbers to the country over the past twelve months.
The Flavours of Malaysia buffet will be available for lunch from Tuesday to Friday, as well as Sunday and dinner on Friday and Saturday nights.
