AK Food Adventure ~ Food Marathon @ Avenue K Shopping Mall Jalan Ampang KL ( PART 1 )

AK FOOD ADVENTURE
29 NOV 2014 


An Exciting & Fun Food Tasting Marathon At Avenue K

AK is Kuala Lumpur's coolest urban hub where shopping is celebrated. Avenue K aims to indulge your retail desires, cater to your entertainment needs and satisfy your appetite for top-notch dining in comfort.

With over 60 exciting dining options including Wondermama, Simplyd, Samba Brazilian Steakhouse Churrascaria, Tsukemen Izakaya, Marutama Ramen, Ayers Rock, Delifrance, Sushi Box, Ah Cheng Laksa, Tokyo Pastry, Johnny Rockets, Fat Boy's Burger Bar, Warisan Kafe, Espressolab, Upbeat and Krispy Kreme, there is no doubt that Avenue K is a Foodies's Haven.


Recently, about 50 hand-picked food and lifestyle bloggers were invited to be part of Avenue K Food Adventure on the month of November. I was also one of the lucky bloggers to be invited for this exciting and fun food tasting marathon event.


Every bloggers were each given a AK Food Adventure Passport and a goodie bag. Our task for the day was to just hop-on, hop-off on the dedicated eateries at Avenue K, eat and introduce them. A list of 20 selected participating eateries were available for us to visit, but we were only required to complete a minimum of 10 restaurants at least. As it was a whole day event from 10 am to 10 pm, my fellow bloggers and I have the whole day to eat in Avenue K, how awesome !



Wish Me Luck for the Food Adventure


Our task was to LOCATE the eateries, ORDER the food, CAMERA EATS before we do, simple as that. Seems easy but the challenging part was my team and I targeted to cover all the 20 eateries in the 12 hours event. Well, that was where the exciting and craziest part of the event begins for us.

We were practically running around the shopping mall , Order-Shoot-Taste-Passport Stamped before we moved on to the next stop. It was truly a fun and exhilarating food event for me as a food blogger.

Crazy and thrilling adventure food marathon for me, Auntie Lilly of followmetoeatla.blogspot.com, my hubby, Uncle Hong of bestrestauranttoeat.blogspot.com and my two sporting good friends ~ food bloggers, Wen Li and Vivian Chooi as we braced ourselves for an NON-STOP EATING SPREE challenge at this AK Food Adventure. Passion drives, we were tired and full but utterly satisfied with our discoveries of more delicious plus yummy places to eat for our readers at this brand new mall.


This holiday, Avenue K transforms into a land of magnificence for the festive season. Bringing its Christmas decorations to life with enchanted pink Christmas trees, a gigantic Santa Claus riding on a fuchsia Mini Cooper and oversized presents. From the main entrance, shoppers are ushered into the mall filled with all things candy pink bright.  

Shoppers were treated to a surprise  visit by Santa Claus himself who merrily gave out Christmas lollipops from his large, red sack.

Highlight of the day was when Avenue K launched its 'Santa's Party' Performance at 4 pm with amazing vocal powerhouse and singing sensation, Joy Victor leading the dance floor while belting out Christmas numbers. The climax of the launch was the amazing dancing performance, an ensemble of performers dressed as sexy Elves and pretty Santarinas, who sprang into dance once the DJ blasted well-loved and joyful Christmas tunes.

    1. Haha... Wish you could join us too, Sharon. Eat, Shoot & Search like crazy ... Tiring but fun, as we were racing against time to complete the amazing eating adventure. The last 3 outlets we missed out was because they had closed for business when we reached there !
