Tiffin Food Court: Malaysia’s Most Unique Dining Experience is Back!EatDrink Staff
July 23, 2019
Following their successful debut last year, the reinvention of the quintessential Malaysian food court experience, Tiffin Food Court, returns with a line-up of celebrated chefs, food vendors, and entertainers, further cementing Tiffin as the culinary platform in the country. Running over six weekends, the dining experience will take place from 5pm until late at The Warehouse (behind The Gasket Alley), every Thursday to Sunday from 25 July to 1 September 2019.
The carnival-inspired affair will be a colourful and quirky, multi-sensory communal space built from the ground up in the warehouse that was also home to last year’s edition.
“This year we’ve tried our best to further elevate Tiffin Food Court’s offerings as a reflection of our aspirations to become the culinary platform for events, and conversations around food that push the culinary experience in Malaysia. Tiffin has always aimed to promote and develop emerging culinary talents and support entrepreneurs whilst nurturing our nation’s collective enthusiasm for all things culinary,” says Adrian Yap, CEO and founder of Freeform Sdn Bhd that organises Tiffin Food Court.
“Tiffin Food Court presents an exciting opportunity for us to push the culinary envelope outside the restaurant setting and share our food with a wider range of foodies,” says Chef Nicholas Scorpion of Jing Ze, who is one of the many guest chefs taking over the kitchens at Tiffin Food Court this year.
CK Kho, owner-bartender of award-winning bars Pahit and Coley, that was listed as one of 2019’s Asia’s 50 Best Bars shares the same sentiment: “Tiffin Food Court is an excellent platform for bartenders to explore new ideas in mixology. It’s also an opportunity for emerging bartenders to showcase their skills. “
Appealing to local foodies with discerning global palates, Tiffin Food Court will feature a rotation of over 60 F&B players out to serve their best fare, where each weekend will celebrate a different flavour highlight. The space will be made up of five culinary experiential zones, namely Chef’s Kitchens, U Mobile Dessert Funhouse, Grub Hubs, Tiger Uncage Street Food Corner, and DISQOVR Lounge.
