Those who enjoy the taste of Aussie specialties will welcome the Australian Food Trail, launched at Breakfast Thieves in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur on 4th May 2017. The food lovers festival, which runs until 26th May, features fourteen leading Malaysian restaurants and cafes. They’ll be showcasing their interpretation of Modern Australian cuisine.
As all the participating restaurants have some connection with Australia, you can be sure what is on offer is authentic. If they’re not Malaysians bringing Aussie influences home they may well be Aussie expats identifying a niche in Malaysia. Equally, they may be chefs responding to Australia’s reputation for fresh, safe and sustainable produce. This produce will feature in their gastronomic creations.
As ‘foodies’ from any part of the world will know, travels to a different country usually revolves around a food trail of some description. Australia has certainly earned its reputation as a foodie hotspot with some of the world’s best restaurants and innovative cafes.
Some of these participating venues will also offer their own special promotions during this time.
Not all the restaurants are in Kuala Lumpur.
Kuala Lumpur and surroundings offers the widest selection.
Or if you’re out in the ‘burbs’,
