Flavours of Malaysia is a celebration of the diversity underpinning Malaysian cuisine including Chinese, Indian and Portuguese influences, not to mention the many spices characteristic of South East Asian food. During the fortnight-long event, The Grace Hotel's Brasserie Restaurant will be transformed into an aromatic hub with the help of four Malaysian chefs, who have prepared the menus and have been flown in from Kuala Lumpur especially for the event.

Head Chef Tan Kok Siong and his team will be showcasing a range of specialty dishes from different Malaysian regions including Kedah, Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Perak. Guests will enjoy popular local recipes, authentic specialty dishes and traditional food from each region, all in served in decadent buffet style reminiscent of a typical Malaysian Hawkers' Market.
