Break out your forks, because the Malaysia International Gastronomy Festival (MIGF) is back once again. From 1-31 October, MIGF 2016 will once again showcase some of the best restaurants in the country. During this time, Special Festival Menus will be presented by each of the participating restaurants and are available at special Festival prices designed to make it easier than ever to experience the sumptuous food for which these venues have earned their reputations.
The theme for this year’s Festival is High Octane Chefs – an apt title considering that the ever- popular Malaysian F1 Grand Prix race flags on 2nd October. Reflecting the evolution of the dining scene in Malaysia, MIGF 2016 will showcase premium dining, which was once limited to the usual staples in a few five-star hotels. Today, restaurants of all types have sprung up to offer many types of new dining experiences.
This year’s line-up of participating restaurants is among the best and most diverse in the Festival’s 15-year history. The Olive, one of the signature outlets of Genting Highlands and winner of the coveted Golden Cauldron Award for Best All-Round Restaurant of MIGF 2015 returns with Chef Radzuan Hamzah once again cooking up sensational Western Continental creations. The Olive is accompanied by fellow Genting participant, LTITUDE Restaurant, Bar & Lounge.
Italian food has always been a mainstay on the Festival roster and this year, the much-loved cuisine is once again well represented with Marini’s on 57, Neroteca and Senja returning to the Festival fold alongside new entrant Savini Ristorante Italiano.
MIGF favourite Dynasty, from Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel, returns with some of the city’s finest Chinese offerings; while The Westin Kuala Lumpur’s Five Sen5es is also back after a two year hiatus, offering premium Cantonese fare.
Berjaya Times Square Hotel’s Samplings On The Fourteenth Restaurant makes its fifth Festival appearance this year, serving up fine Western Classic fare, while Ruyi & Lyn are back to dazzle with their innovative Pan Asian cuisine.
