Malaysia Food Festival, Culinary Journey to Truly Asia
@ Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai
Special Guest Chefs from Hilton Kuala Lumpur
Malaysian cuisine consists of cooking traditions and practices found in the Southeast Asian country of Malaysia, and reflects the multiethnic makeup of its population. As a result of its history, Malaysia’s culinary style in the present day is primarily a melange of traditions from its Malay, Chinese, Indian, Indonesian and ethnic Bornean citizens, with heavy to light influences from Thai, Portuguese, Dutch, and British cuisines – to name a few. This resulted in a symphony of flavors, making Malaysian cuisine highly complex and diverse.

A 30-year veteran chef, Malay Chef Yusaini oversees the banquet service for up to 1000 persons as well as buffet service at Vasco’s, all-day dining and buffet restaurant at Hilton Kuala Lumpur.
