Grand Margherita Kuching serves up Thai and Japanese delicacies

KUCHING: Grand Margherita Hotel’s Orchid Garden Coffee House is staging a special food promotion called ‘The Art and Joy of Thai and Japanese Cuisine’ until Feb 18 in conjunction with its re-opening and also for the coming Lunar New Year and Valentine’s day celebrations.

Assistant Minister of Tourism and Heritage Datuk Talib Zulpilip, who launched the promotion, said the move by the hotel to promote delicacies from neighbouring countries was a good marketing tool for the the city and also the state.

“The tourists, both local and foreign, could take this opportunity of trying out Thai and Japanese without having to go far and travelling to those countries,” he said.

He added that as part of the tourism industry, it is important for hotels to come out with promotions that not only market themselves but also tourism in the state as this would benefit both parties.

Talib, who is Sarawak Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) chairman, also commended the restaurant for its ‘live’ cooking concept, which would be an added attraction for customers.

“Apart from the beautiful setting, I am pleased that the restaurant and the hotel as a whole, is very clean. This is very important as it could reflect an image on the city and the state,” Talib added.

To ensure the authenticity of the dishes, the hotel has flown in three guest chefs from Bangkok, Thailand.
