Australian Food Trail - Snap and Win!

Do you like taking photos of your food? If the answer is YES, then do check out the Australian Food Trail campaign, organised by the Australian High Commission, Kuala Lumpur.

The Campaign will run from 1 May 2017 to 26 May 2017, to celebrate Australia’s exciting, creative and multicultural food scene as well as the strong people-to-people links between Australia and Malaysia.

“Australia’s culinary traditions reflect the diverse, multicultural character of our society, of which Malaysia is very much a part, as well as the natural bounty of our land”, said His Excellency, Rod Smith PSM, Australian High Commissioner to Malaysia. “The Australian Food Trail gives Malaysians here a chance to savour our culinary excellence at some fine local restaurants, and discover what the taste of Australia is all about.”



The Australian Food Trail will see 14 leading Malaysian restaurants and cafes showcasing their interpretation of Modern Australian cuisine. Each of these venues has a connection with Australia - Malaysian foodies bringing Aussie influences home from their travels; Aussie expats setting up shop in Malaysia; or chefs using Australia’s fresh, safe and sustainable produce in their gastronomic creations. Some of these participating venues will also offer their own special promotions during this time.

As part of the Campaign, consumers are encouraged to discover what the Australian food scene is all about, by trying an ‘Australian’ meal at one of the participating venues.





HOW IT WORKS

1. Visit one of the participating outlets.

2. Order their special ‘Australian Food Trail Campaign’ meal.

3. Take a photo of your meal.

4. Share the photo on Facebook and tag #MYOzFood and @AusinMalaysia

PRIZES

Diners will have the chance to win 2 x return flights from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Perth, Australia, courtesy of Malindo Air.

We visited one of the participating outlets, Bonfire Restaurant & Bar at The Starling Mall, and tried their "Australian Food Trail Campaign dish" -  the Braised Wagyu Cheeks (RM42). As always, the camera eats first ;) Snap a photo like below, and then post it on Facebook and tag #MYOzFood and @AusinMalaysia. It's as simple as that!




Another participating outlet in the Australian Food Trail campaign is Drift Dining & Bar, located in Jalan Bedara in Bukit Bintang. The restaurant will be highlighting five of its dishes for this campaign, order one of these dishes and you would be eligible for the contest.


  • Slow braised baby pork ribs with yakiniku sauce, fennel and apple (RM39)
  • Crispy skin barramundi with olives, mint and orange (RM39)
  • Australian braised beef short ribs with Chinese master stock, shallots and chilli (RM90)
  • Slow braised Australian lamb shank with enoki mushrooms, burnt butter and sumac
  • Australian Black Angus striploin with wasabi butter (RM115)


Remember - order the Campaign Dish, snap a photo, and post it on Facebook, tagging #MYOzFood and @AusinMalaysia. We had the striploin steak and it was AMAZING! It tasted so good, and the plating is ace too.



Good luck and happy snapping!
