The coming weekend will be the second week of the eight-week long Tiffin Food Court, and we have our senses all prepared for the reinvention of the quintessential Malaysian food court experience. More than 50 vendors and partners are expected to be present at the gastronomy fair once again from Thursday till Sunday, and specially for the long weekends this week and the week after – till Monday!
Amidst a full-on 4D treat with a riot of colours, sounds and the most tantalising aromas, taking place at the disused military warehouse located behind The Gasket Alley in Seksyen 13, Petaling Jaya, here are our top picks on what to dive into.
1. Bowls of Steel by Jun
One of the four new restaurants making their first appearance in the Klang Valley culinary scene, Chef Jun Chan’s Bowls of Steel is a ‘Malaysian-ised’ noodle bar with local flavours sourced from our very backyard.
2. Tanuki Raw
Named after the Japanese mythology shapeshifting creature, Tanuki Raw brings from across the Causeway a fun dining experience that consists of a playful mix of Japanese fare and no-holds-barred American street food – gastronomical creations that will leave you, at the end of the day, happy as you should be, after a flavourful meal.
3. Pizza Lab
You know them – or know of them – with their locally revered gourmet burgers, such as the salted egg yolk The Ultraman 3.0 burger, the Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang burger, Hangover beef burger with their signature seared beef patty. Moving forward, MyBurgerLab debuts their latest venture into pizza with the aptly named Pizza Lab, with pan-cooked flavours like the Huat the Duck and Mary’s Lamb.
You can never say no to nachos. Having already parked their food truck at packed local events such as the monthly curated creative platform RIUH! In the City and Good Vibes Festival, Nachoslah will be hanging out crispy baked nacho chips by the dozen drizzled with melted cheese and peppered with beef rendang and masak lemak cili padi minces.
5. Chef Malcolm Goh
Indulge yourselves with some top notch fare from the Asian Food Channel host Define:Food executive chef, Malcolm. He is sure to whet your appetite with his array of truffle risotto, wagyu mac ‘n’ cheese croquettes, truffled cheese espuma and house cured salt beef Reuben.
