Stand A Chance To Win Luxury Hotel Stay & Buffet When You Try These Special Merdeka Month Cuisines

Hey foodies! It’s already August now and it’s about time we triumph over Merdeka Day and Malaysia Day! In conjunction with Merdeka & Malaysia day, three of IOI hotels including Le Méridien Putrajaya, Marriott Putrajaya, and Four Points by Sheraton Puchong are celebrating these special days by presenting a curated Merdeka menu for all to enjoy! The great news is- you stand a chance to win attractive prizes like a stay and a buffet dinner at their luxury hotels by joining their Social Media Contest!


Special Truly Malaysia National Cuisine At IOI Hotels 

To present a truly Malaysia national taste experience, IOI hotels has collaborated with The Vegetarian Butcher and Tourism Selangor for a delectable plant-based feast with classic Malaysian flavours. You might be wondering why plant-based? Because we Malaysians love meat, and that’s the exact reason why the chefs at IOI hotels chose to use plant-based ingredients from The Vegetarian Butcher. Their plant-based meats taste MORE meaty than you think. 

Try it out yourself at these 3 hotels!

1. Le Méridien Putrajaya

First on the list is Latest Recipe restaurant located in Le Méridien Putrajaya. The restaurant serves an array of classic recipes with a contemporary twist. Their specially-launched Merdeka menu consists of two Malaysian favourite dishes, a tomato pasta and a bread naan. 

Pasta with Meatball Tomato Coulis

We can’t deny that tomato-based pasta has been a part of Malaysian food culture for a long time now. This Pasta with Meatball Tomato Coulis by Latest Recipe is paired with vegetarian meatballs that are unbelievaballs-ly juicy and flavourful!


Plant-based Lamb Keema with Garlic Naan Bread

On Latest Recipe’s Merdeka menu, the Plant-based Lamb Keema with Garlic Naan Bread is something that’s close to our heart as naan is one of Malaysian daily staple foods. Lamb Keema with naan is a great pair, but would it go well with plant-based Lamb Keema? We honestly couldn’t taste the difference! The high-protein soy-based Lamb Keema works magic in flavours, and it’s good to know that it’s a healthier version! 

These dishes are only available at Le Méridien Putrajaya.

2. Marriott Putrajaya

Next up, Zest restaurant at Marriott Putrajaya excites us with a Malaysian favourite Curry Masala and a unique Rendang Burger.

Plant-based Curry Masala with Rice

The Plant-based Curry Masala with Rice comes with the unbelievaballs-ly juicy meatballs mentioned earlier too! The thick masala flavour is a satisfying blend to savour with the hearty white rice and fresh vegetable served.

Plant-based Rendang Burger 

Zest restaurant also presents this Plant-based Rendang Burger that’s a unique twist. Malaysians love rendang as well as burgers, so they got both together and made them as one! Curious what the plant-based patty tastes like? It’s chicken flavoured, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside! 

These dishes are on the Merdeka menu curated by Zest at Marriott Putrajaya.

3. Four Points by Sheraton Puchong

The Eatery at Four Points by Sheraton Puchong has come up with an interesting Merdeka menu too! Delicious plant-based burgers and pizza are what you can expect there.

Plant-based Burger with Corn Guacamole and Mushroom 

Can’t resist a good burger bite, and this Plant-based Burger with Corn Guacamole and Mushroom is a hearty one! With grilled mushroom, corn guacamole and plant-based beef patty sandwiched between the golden brown buns, you’d find them a perfect combination. The patty is firm on the outside but definitely juicy inside with bursting meaty flavour.

Indian Plant-based Keema Pizza

You can never get enough of Keema, so The Eatery at Four Points by Sheraton Puchong fused them into a pizza for you to enjoy! This Indian Plant-based Keema Pizza is made with minced meat from The Vegetarian Butcher, which adds more texture to your munches. 

You can find these dishes on the Merdeka menu at The Eatery, Four Points by Sheraton Puchong.
