The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) is once again inviting guests to embark on a culinary journey through Malaysia’s rich heritage with its revamped Ramadan menus, characterized by a blend of tradition and sustainability. Under the overarching theme of ‘Tradisi Semarak Rasa,’ the Centre has meticulously curated its offerings, infusing them with fresh, locally sourced ingredients to enhance both flavor and nutritional value.

Executive Chef Hisham Bin Jaafar sheds light on the menu evolution, emphasizing the team’s dedication to preserving tradition while embracing innovation. “Our culinary artisans, hailing from various corners of Malaysia, have skillfully crafted signature kampung-inspired dishes that resonate deeply with Malaysians during buka puasa,” says Chef Hisham. “This year, we’ve gone the extra mile to elevate our recipes by prioritizing fresh, locally sourced ingredients and introducing new nutritious options to cater to health-conscious diners.”
Beyond culinary excellence, the Centre ensures a holistic dining experience for its Muslim guests, providing designated prayer facilities and halal-certified kitchens accredited by the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM). Moreover, the Centre’s commitment to sustainability shines through, with 70% of the Ramadan menu featuring locally sourced products, reducing environmental impact and supporting local suppliers. Guests can savor these culinary delights at the public buka puasa, priced affordably at RM198 nett per person and available for bookings from 18 March to 5 April 2024. Special discounts are offered for children, senior citizens, ‘early bird’ bookings, and group reservations, ensuring accessibility for all.
