Savouring the best of Malaysia in Shanghai

PETALING JAYA: Good food, cultural performances, interactive booths and fun-filled activities are among the highlights of a carnival in Shanghai to mark the 50th anniversary of Malaysia-China diplomatic ties.

The 3rd Malaysia Food and Culture Festival will be co-hosted by Malaysia Chamber of Commerce and Industry in China (Shanghai office) and the Malaysian Consulate General (tourism section) on May 25-26 at Pudong Shanghai Qiantan Taikoo Li, Wood Zone L1.

Under the theme “Malay Heritage”, the festival aims to immerse visitors in Malaysia’s rich history, culture and modern life.

MayCham China (Shanghai) vice-chairman Syn Tan said they are thrilled about bringing the festival to Shanghai.

“This event is a testament to the enduring friendship between Malaysia and China. It provides a good platform for cultural exchange and mutual appreciation,” he said.

Open to the public for free, the festival invites attendees to savour Malaysian flavours and vibrant traditions.

“Our goal is to offer an authentic Malaysian dining experience in Shanghai. We want our guests to savour our specialities prepared by our very own culinary chefs,” Tan added.

Highlighting the culinary aspect, Shangri-La Hotel Qiantan, Shanghai, will host a special Malaysian cuisine buffet from May 24-31, featuring executive chefs from Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.

Participants can also explore the Malaysian food and cultural bazaar, featuring well-known Malaysian brands such as Chek Hup Ipoh White Coffee, Hernan Musang King durian, Mamee, Munchy and many more.

The festival’s entertainment line-up includes performances by the Royal Malaysian Dance Company, a teh tarik show by Malaysia’s champion chef, traditional bamboo dances by Malaysian students and other dance performances like zapin, labi-labi and joget.

Interactive booths and activities will feature hand-painted henna art and nostalgic South-East Asian childhood games such as gasing and Batu Seremban, adding to the festival’s vibrant atmosphere.

Tan said on the central stage, star chefs will also conduct live cooking demonstrations and will be sharing the stories behind some of Malaysia’s popular dishes.

In addition, MayCham China members, friends and acquaintances can take advantage of a special discount on the customised buffet.

“We invite everyone to join us for a weekend of cultural celebration and culinary delights,” Tan added.
