Sushi King launches 100th outlet grand opening at Aeon Shah Alam – Halal Sushi in Malaysia
Who doesn’t love Japanese food? If I got an opportunity to travel to any country, Japan is always my first list. Not only about the food, but the culture, the people, technology, scenery and the list continues. A few days ago, Malaysia’s all-time favorite Japanese restaurant as Sushi King proudly launched its 100th outlet at the new AEON Mall Shah Alam.
For those who don’t know, this largest Japanese restaurant chain in Malaysia has been operated for 21 years.
“From the time we opened our first outlet in 1995 in Kuala Lumpur, we have definitely come a long way to where we are now with our 100th store, exposing Malaysians to enjoy one of Japan’s historically-rich cuisine over the years and vice versa, it gives us the opportunity to learn about Malaysia’s culture and their curiosity for new food,” said Tan Sri Dato’ Seri (Dr.) Konishi at the launch.
During the launch of the 100th outlet, guests were treated to an authentic Japanese launch ceremony, with intriguing showcases of the Japanese culture such as a magnificent Taiko Drum performance (a traditional Japanese instrument); a Japanese traditional ‘Soran Bushi’ (Japanese sea shanty) dance performance; and the Mochitsuki Ceremony (the pounding of rice cakes to make ‘Mochi’) – a customary Japanese event in ushering new beginnings. By partaking in the ceremony of mochi – thought to symbolise the spirit of rice – the 100th outlet of Sushi King envisions to gain the strength of these rice divinities and achieve great success similar to the forefathers of its outlets.
“Our food is developed by Japanese Master Chefs to preserve the authentic taste of Japanese sushi. To maintain the quality of Sushi King’s fare, our Japanese chefs monitor all our restaurants and at the same time, we have local head chefs who are specialists in Japanese food preparation, to ensure consistency and freshness of our meals,” said Hijioka.
KFC Malaysia adds a delicious twist to your day with the all-new signature KFC Twister. The launch was held today at Pavilion Elite and introduced a choice of two distinct flavours, the Hot & Zesty Twister and the Cheezy Twister from only RM6.50 each.
Made fresh in stores, the KFC Twister is packed with crunchy Zinger strips, crisp lettuce, fresh cucumbers and tomatoes, all wrapped in a toasted tortilla. With a choice of special chili-lime sauce in the Hot & Zesty Twister, or creamy jalapeño cheese and mayo in the Cheezy Twister, both KFC Twisters offer a refreshing new twist to your daily fare.
“Our fans have spoken and the KFC Twister is back by popular demand. This product delivers 100% authentic, signature KFC flavors in a portable format that can be enjoyed on-the-go.” said Angelina Villanueva, Senior General Manager, KFC Marketing.
“Fans will be hard-pressed to choose between the two popular flavours: Hot & Zesty Twister that features spicy and lime hints, and the Cheezy Twister with the unmistakable KFC signature cheese. That’s why we also offer a Double Twister Combo for those who want both Twisters,” she added.
