New locally inspired menus are now available to Business Class passengers departing from Kuala Lumpur to Doha
Qatar Airways has partnered with Malaysian celebrity chef icon, Chef Wan, unveiling a new Business Class menu. Starting July 2022, the indulgent menu of delicious, locally inspired meals will be available to Business Class passengers departing from Kuala Lumpur for Doha.
On 23 June, Qatar Airways hosted an exclusive food tasting session with members of the media and social media influencers. Much to the delight of its guests, Chef Wan held a cooking demonstration of his famous Nyonya Curry Laksa that instantly became the crowd’s favourite.
Qatar Airways celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, and as the winner of Skytrax World’s Best Business Class Onboard Catering 2021, the airline continues to evolve its onboard meal offerings with exciting culinary collaborations with celebrity chefs and dining establishments worldwide.
“Working with Qatar Airways is an honour as it means working with the world’s best airline. The airline’s commitment to serving high quality food is unparalleled, evident from the multiple awards Qatar Airways has received. We have taken great care to present Malaysian cuisine on a global platform, and I hope the dishes will give passengers a lasting memory of Malaysia. I’m also glad to have the chance to pay homage to traditional Malaysian cuisine and share the Malaysian food culture that I hold so dear to my heart to international travellers through the world’s best airline,” said Chef Wan.
Chef Wan’s menu features classic Malay cooking techniques and traditional Malaysianflavours. Highlights include charcoal-grilled fish fillet with spicy Portuguese sauce, paired with Lemuni rice, Okra and Cili Padi, as well as Lamb Kuzi served with Terengganu style rice, cashew nut and Acar Buah. The menu also includes an exclusive heritage recipe of nyonya curry laksa passed down through different generations from Chef Wan’s family.
Qatar Airways has been one of the few airlines that has remained in operations since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020 and has maintained the Kuala Lumpur – Doha service throughout the pandemic period to provide global connectivity to the Malaysian market. Additionally, Qatar Airways also further enhanced its strategic partnership with Malaysia Airlines in May 2022 to launch a non-stop service from Kuala Lumpur to Doha. With this codeshare expansion, both airlines are currently operating a total of 14 weekly flights between Kuala Lumpur and Doha. This expansion benefits travellers from across the globe, providing them with a greater combined network and a seamless travel experience.
