A Malaysian Food Culture Cook-Off with ATP World Tour tennis players

On September 24, 2014, Makan Kitchen, DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur’s signature restaurant, has been turned into a mini arena where ATP World Tour tennis players battle it out with each other in a friendly culinary match. Ernests Gulbis and Pablo Andujar were paired with their little partners from HOPE Worldwide Malaysia as they’re tasked with making one of Malaysia’s all-time favourite breakfast – the roti canai accompanied with teh tarik.

Makan Kitchen Sous Chef Prem Kumar demonstrated the art of making and presenting the roti canai and teh tarik in true Malaysian fashion in which the players would later be judged on. Ernests Gulbis and Pablo Andujar alongside their partners took turns to recreate the two items, where the best presented combination was named the winning team.

Ian Barrow, general manager of DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur said “Once again, we are happy to partner with Malaysian Open, Kuala Lumpur 2014 (an ATP World Tour 250 Series Event) and HOPE Worldwide Malaysia in an event where we can showcase a reflection of the Malaysian food culture under one roof at Makan Kitchen. We also believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we hope that with this activity, we will be able to instill the importance of breakfast for a healthier and balanced lifestyle.”

A true showcase of Malaysian dining, Makan Kitchen is the signature restaurant of DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur. Seating 350 persons, the restaurant is a hub for culinary actions where specialty chefs dish up recipes from six local cuisines; from the popular Malay, Chinese, Indian to the more authentic Peranakan, Kristang and Iban delights, served from three live interactive kitchens. Diners will experience first-hand the journey from selecting fresh local produce set in ‘market style’ showcases, choose their preferred style and watch the chefs work their magic!
