Makan Malaysia celebrates Veganuary with their vegan Malaysian cuisine

Malaysian cuisine is becoming more and more popular in the UK but is still relatively unknown to me and so many others. So when I was invited along with a few others to attend Susie and Katies of Makan Malaysia this January to enjoy their supperclub at the Little Blue Door I could not say no. However there was a twist to their menu this month as after all we are in January which equals Veganuary for vegans so all the food cooked and served on the night was vegan.

Makan Malaysia

Makan Malaysia is jointly run by Susie and Katie, who are childhood friends and share a shared passion for food and cooking.

Originally both from Malaysia, they have made the UK their home and share their culinary expertise by organising intimate supper clubs, pop-up dinners, online shops and catering for themed weddings and events.

Did you know? that Makan Malaysia means ‘to eat’ and that is why they called their company Makan Malaysia as they love to eat Malaysian food and get others to eat Malaysian cuisine.
