Food Galore! - KK Food Fest 2013

5 April 2013

Are you a foodie like me? 

Well you're in luck 'cause the third Kota Kinabalu Food Festival (KKFF) is HERE!! =D A month packed with special festival menus from more than 25 participating restaurants, this annual event promises great dining experiences and a whole lot more.

Standing out from regular food bazaars, KKFF is a month-long festival starting on the 1st to the 30th of April and is held over a month across all of the event's participating restaurants, cafes, bistros and hotels in Kota Kinabalu. 

One of the main highlights will be the Opening Bazaar (see above for details) where members of the public can check out all the festival's participating restaurants and what they have in store for the month! Contests and games such as a children's colouring contest and the Buy and Win, where visitors who purchase anything above RM20 at any of the participating booths will have a chance to participate in the Yummy Pick and win attractive prizes will also be held.

Dont wanna miss a thing? Grab a free copy of the KK Food Fest official magazine at any of the participating restaurants! The magazine serves as a guide and directory that offers information and contact details on all of the restaurants, as well as brief descriptions of their main offerings, specialities, best sellers, and special Festival Menus, which is the key to joining the Stamp and Win Contest, which offers some very attractive prizes!

Another thing to look out for is a special KK Food Fest board which will be rotated at Suria Sabah, Citymall and the LCCT. The board will display the QR Code of each participating restaurant and by scanning the QR Code, the public will be entitled to join the Scan and Win contest, and be in the running to win this nifty gadget:
As if that's not enought food to make your eyes and stomach bulge with joy, the Sabah Industry Food Expo (SIFE) will also be held at Suria Sabah on 20-21 April, highlighting bakeries and food manufacturing companies.
