Foodie Adventures: Meliã Kuala Lumpur’s Flavour of the Philippines Menu

Filipino cuisine is one of the most underrated in the world – and I’m not just saying this because I’m from the Philippines. 😉

While we have our own, unique flavours, we were also influenced by Spanish, American, Malay, Chinese, and even Indian cuisine. It is indeed quite a bit of a melting pot that is not as popular as our neighbouring Southeast Asian nations’ food yet. Although real foodies from the West are now opening up to it and that makes me so happy!

Recently, the Ambassador was invited to have dinner at the Meliã Hotel here in Kuala Lumpur. He was to try the Filipino dishes they are serving for their special menu that runs until April 18. He brought his people from the embassy including my husband and I got to tag along. 😉

I plan to make this a really quick post so I will just share some photos of our sumptuous dinner that night with you, along with a little bit more info in the end.

The man behind it all is Meliã’s Filipino-Malaysian Executive Chef, Nelson Ray HJ Samson. He is actually Filipino-Malaysian whose father is originally from Zamboanga.
