Taste MIGF is back again with another 2 day epic galactic food odyssey. Last night was the preview of Malaysia International Gourmet Festival (MIGF), it was filled with tall alien costume entertainers, bright coloured sparked diva girls, lots of starwars enthusiast and of course the array of beautiful dishes from various hotels and restaurants. Just in case you haven't heard, Taste MIGF is a time where the public is given a chance to indulge in a gourmet adventure of tasting spectacular fine dining cuisines from various restaurants found in Malaysia (most are from KL).
It was really different from last year. This year's location is held in Berjaya Time Square Hotel which is bigger than last year's location. Aside from enjoying the food from different restaurants, the public can also view various culinary cooking schools, buy various cooking items, food and even luxury watches. The participating restaurants this year include those from 5-star hotels. The restaurants are Samplings On The Fourteenth, Iketeru, Graze, Dynasty, LTITUDE Restaurant Bar & Lounge, Imperial Rama, The Olive, Lafite, Shang Palace, Qba Latin Bar & Grill, Aliyaa Island Restaurant & Bar, Busaba Thai, Dewakan, Enak KL,Maison Francaise, Marini’s on 57, Minori, Neroteca, Nerovivo, Ruyi & Lyn, Soleil,Tanzini, The Oak Room, Vineria.IT, Yezi and Zender’s Restaurant & Bar.
I was totally blown away with the presentation of the food along with the stations this year. I have to say Resort Genting had the best visuals among all of the other restaurants. Love the way the incorporated star wars with their food presentation. BTW, this year's themed is outer space. So there were a few guests and vip that took the extra dedication to come ready in their appearance. Some even wore superhero outfits, not sure how is that outer space, I guess as long as everyone is happy right? haha. Back to the food, I love most of Sampling on the Fourteenth Restaurant food along with Maison Francise lobster soup. Another restaurant that stood out was RUYI & Lyn. They serve contemporary modern local dishes in a swanky style like nasi lemak sushi and chicken rice sushi. Definitely a must try restaurant. I'll let the pictures do the talking now.
Felt like the whole KL was present at the event last night. If you're planning to attend Taste MIGF, you can purchase your voucher tokens online or at the door (tokens are used to purchase the food in the hall). Also if you're thinking KL is too much of a hassle to drive to, you can always use UBER. Get a free ride when you use my code (uberjessytheklchic). Used uber there and just relax during the journey, plus I didn't have to worry about parking. Super glad that I got Amelia and Charlie with me during the event. I had so much things on me that Charlie helped to hold the judging board, Amelia handle our tokens and I snap the pictures. Good to know we make a good team together!
I'm actually thinking to go back on Sunday. If any of you are there, hope to see you!
