A week promoting Malaysian culture and food will be held at the Melia Ha Noi Hotel from August 21-28 to mark Malaysia’s National Day, August 31.
Malaysia’s diverse culture, cuisine and music features derived from other cultures such as China and India.
Malaysian food often uses fresh ingredients, especially spices and herbs, to enhance the taste and flavors. Tropical fruit and sweet coconut milk are served for dessert.
Visitors will have a chance to enjoy traditional dances performed by skilled Malaysians and make Teh Tarik tea, a popular Malaysian beverage.
The buffet at the El Patio costs US$24 for one person. The evening tea and Malaysian traditional dance show at the hall is US$7. A performance of Malaysian cuisine art at the Thang Long restaurant costs US$10. Proceeds go to charity.
