2 for 1 Vouchers for Malaysian Food Festival

Following in the footsteps of the popular Japanese food festival and the Korean food festival in London, the Malaysian government has decided to get into the act and have created the Malaysia Kitchen campaign, aiming to introduce the culinary delights of this exotic South East Asian country to the tastebuds of Londoners.

Starting from Monday, 19th February 2010 until the 8th March, anyone in London can print out a special voucher here that entitles the holder to two main courses for the price of one at a huge range of top Malaysian restaurants in London. As a big fan of Malaysian food, this is a big deal, as normally many of these restaurants (with the exception of Jom Makan and Awana) do not normally offer discounts off their already reasonable prices.

The list of Malaysian restaurants taking part in the Malaysia Kitchen festival is head-spinning, and is an indication of the vibrant Malaysian food scene in London. Going through the long list of restaurants where the voucher will be valid, some of them are well worth the near 50% off promotion and are the top Malaysian restaurants in London, while some of the others are “Westernized” versions and not worth visiting even with the discount.

Some Malay dishes that are essentials to Malaysian cuisine and are must-tries are satay (grilled chicken pieces on a skewer with peanut sauce), laksa (spicy noodles in a curry soup), and nasi lemak (rice cooked in coconut rice with a fried egg, spicy prawns, and peanuts).

We’ve shortlisted the top and best Malaysian restaurants that you should visit for the Malaysia Kitchen festival:
