Malaysia Airports is featuring its top airport cuisines under the banner of “Taste of Malaysia Airports” during this year’s Taste MIGF 2018, a two-day gastronomy extravaganza.

The three featured restaurants – Bumbu Desa, Fukuya and Grandmama’s – are showcasing some of their most popular dishes at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

These three restaurants were among the top 25 winners from last year’s KULinary event – a dining discovery campaign hosted by Malaysia Airports that celebrates gastronomic excellence and dining experiences at KLIA’s main terminal and klia2.

During the annual KULinary event, travelers can sample a variety of exciting airport F&B offerings from well-established international brands and popular local eateries.

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, and in this case, at KLIA.”

“We are also proud to be able 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,” he added.

Offering a mini Malaysia experience in the airport, Grandmama’s serves traditional Malaysian flavors, including Nasi Lemak.

Additionally, visitors can taste the best of Indonesian cuisine from Bumbu Desa with its signature dishes of Nasi Tumpeng (a special dish made to celebrate important events), Ikan Bawal Taliwang Lombok (pomfret with special Taliwang Lombok sauce) and KopiKita (original Indonesian coffee).

Also present is Japanese restaurant Fukuya @KLIA, offering the new Hotate Miso Soup (miso soup with scallops) which was specially created to celebrate this year’s Taste MIGF event.

Throughout the month-long MIGF 2018 celebration in September, these three restaurants will also provide a special menu at their KLIA outlets.

During the upcoming KULinary event at KLIA in November, both airport terminals will host fun activities and special meal deals.
