Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan University College (KLMUC) held a soft launch to mark their newly opened restaurant dubbed ‘Restoran Dulu dan Kini @KLMUC.’ Located right in the heart of the city at the Putra Campus in Wisma Sachdev, the restaurant brings with it an authentic Malay dining experience.
Having begun its operation on the 1st of June, ‘Restoran Dulu dan Kini @KLMUC’ is a joint venture between Malai Food Industries and Cosmopoint Group, and is open to all students and the public. The name ‘Restoran Dulu dan Kini @KLMUC’ takes after the ambiance of the restaurant, adorned with vintage photos of the city set amidst the present backdrop of today’s Kuala Lumpur. Truly, a restaurant like no other ‘Restoran Dulu dan Kini @KLMUC’ will be manned thrice weekly by the students themselves.
To inaugurate the soft launch of the restaurant, we are in for a real feast as we were treated to local Malay delicacies such as, ‘Ubi Kayu with Sambal Ikan Tamban,’ ‘Pengat Durian’ and ‘Asam Pedas Tulang Rawan Kacang Hijau,’ dishes which reflect the true splendour of Malay cuisine. These dishes will also be part of the Ramadhan buffet spread, commencing on the 18th of June until the end of the fasting month and is open to all students, staff and the public.
“We are proud to collaborate with our partners Malai Food Industries on the establishment of ‘Restoran Dulu dan Kini @KLMUC,’ and I am more pleased that our students will gradually get involved in its business operations once the restaurant is in full swing. This embodies the core essence of ‘Real World Practice’ that combines learning with practical experiences,” said Haslin Hassan, Dean for the Faculty of Hospitality & Tourism Management.
