Tut’s brings signature Egyptian cuisine inspired by the rich heritage and unique flavours of Egypt at wallet-friendly prices
Kuala Lumpur, 25 May 2017 – In Egypt, everything seems larger than life; the soaring pyramids, the magnificent temples, the labyrinth shopping souks and the rich history, culture and heritage that leave visitors awestruck. Egypt is not all about its historic treasures though. Egyptian cuisine, which dates back centuries, is until today served up by mothers for their families and by street food vendors providing great taste, textures, aroma and unforgettable flavour.
Malaysians will now get the first taste of Egypt as Tut’s Egyptian Eatery opens its doors in 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Kuala Lumpur.
The casual dining restaurant on the Lower Ground floor at the New Wing of 1 Utama is offering authentic Egyptian dishes such as Koshari, Molokiah, Hawaoshi, Oven Baked Chicken to name a few as well as desserts and refreshing drinks.
“Egypt is known for its ancient history and heritage. The origins of Egyptian cuisine is still well treasured till today. We believe that our authentic Egyptian cuisine prepared by Egyptian chefs does not compromise on flavour. What you will savour at Tut’s will be exactly the same if you were fortunate to visit Egypt. Every dish is reflective of our commitment to bring the real taste of Egypt!” said Mohamed Zein, Tut’s Business Development Manager.
Tut’s, gets its name from the famous King Tut Ankh Amoun. The Pharaoh-themed restaurant is complemented by a modern interior with vibrant colours to create a cozy and inviting dining atmosphere for families and friends gathering to share a meal.
Zein added, “We are also driven to start a new foodie future for Egyptian cuisine in Malaysia. Our cuisine is enjoyed on a daily basis in Egypt because it is accessible, affordable and satisfying. We hope that Egyptian cuisine becomes a natural choice for Malaysians to enjoy on a regular basis when they are out on a hunt for tasty food with good value. With that in mind, we hope to expand Tut’s across key locations in the Klang Valley soon.”
Based on a focus group survey done by Tut’s recently among Malaysians from all walks of life, most of the respondents thought that Egyptian food is similar to Arabian food. However, after introducing them to Tut’s dishes, the respondents were pleasantly surprised that the Egyptian dishes was not the usual fare that they have tried and they also found the dishes to be tasty and satisfying to their palate. At Tut’s, the menu does not cross into Middle Eastern, African or Mediterranean cuisine to give diners a real taste of Egypt.
“We want to ensure that we give our diners the true taste of Egypt and the best dishes loved by generations. At the same time, our pricing is reasonable to keep diners stomachs and wallets happy,” said Zein.
