I love the KL International Gourmet Festival as it's the great gateway for gourmets, gourmands and the merely greedy to gorge and gross out on fine dining without the foodie police raising an eyebrow. It's manna from heaven for diet-weary folks to say 'die, diet' and postpone the day of reckoning to a later date. Now's the time to enjoy life to the hilt even if it tilts the scales the wrong way! If food be the music of love, eat on!

The Festival is a great time to get together with friends or business associates over a lingering meal with divine cuisine and elegant atmosphere.
