7 Malaysian Home-Based Food Businesses That Are Feeling The Christmas Spirit

These home-based businesses in Malaysia have got you covered: from East to West and sweet to savoury, you can have a delicious holiday feast delivered straight to you in the comforts of your home this festive season.

The upsurge of home-based F&B businesses during the pandemic have increased more than ever. Introducing some local business owners who turned their homes into business ventures, ready to serve up deliciously festive meals for you and your loved ones this holiday season:

1. Makan Thing

Makan: the Malay word for ‘eat’ unofficially means ‘joy’ here in Malaysia. As a nation that prides itself on delicious food, it’s no surprise that we place emphasis on our meals and what comes along with it – spending time with loved ones, enjoying a meal and having great conversations together, which ultimately, is what this holiday season is all about.

Makan Thing is where you get comfort food for all cravings and any or all ‘makan-makan’ occasions. Share the juicy Roast Chicken (choice of garlic butter herb or lemon garlic) for dinner, and fill in those empty table spaces with sides like Roast Vege, Mashed Potato, Grilled Eggplant and Scalloped Potato. If that’s not enough, carbo-load with the Aglio Olio or Garlic Butter Rice.

From 20th to 30th December, get 10% off when you spend a minimum of RM150. Available for pre-order and delivery via their Instagram or WhatsApp to +6014 3570 420.
