Paying homage to Malaysia’s diverse food scene

According to Alexander Tito (General Manager of Nobu KL), the globally acclaimed Japanese restaurant is dedicated to crafting exceptional dining experiences by blending tradition with innovation—a commitment that resonates in our Independence Day Celebration.

As an expat venturing into Malaysia, it became evident to me that this country is one that is rich in history, culture, and a haven for all sorts of food! It is this very sentiment that we aimed to mirror through our Flavours of Freedom Osusume,” said Alexander Tito. 

The Flavours of Freedom Osusume undoubtedly stands as a heartfelt tribute to Malaysia’s opulent heritage and dynamic culinary landscape!
