Malaysia Day (Saturday, 16th September) is just around the corner, and what better way to bond with friends and loved ones by filling up your bellies. After all, as Malaysians, we love to eat 24/7. That’s a special trait we are proud to inherit and flaunt – or maybe not 😂

So instead of splurging at expensive restaurants, we’ve come up with a list of cheaper options to celebrate Malaysia Day. Ranging from buffet and set meals to desserts, here are some irresistible food offers.

Psst, some of them are even free!
