My partner in crime and I headed over to Pavilion Kuala Lumpur on 4 September (before heading to the premier night of Saturday Night Live which you can read about here – https://timchew.net/2015/09/07/saturday-night-fever-the-musical-live-in-kuala-lumpur-2015/) for the Carlsberg Connection Block Party in conjunction with Pavilion KL’s “Journey of Taste”. The “Journey of Taste” runs from 1st to 30th September 2015, and offers shoppers a journey of food trails, promotions and events, with over 150 F&B tenants, dedicated gourmet hall, spacious restaurants with private rooms and a VIP dining concierge.
To make the journey even more exciting, the mall has lined up a series of promotions, cooking workshops and food demonstrations for people of all ages including children. Cooking workshops held in partnership with restaurants like Fish & Co. and Ippudo.
The Carlsberg Connection Block Party was where shoppers could go restaurant hopping along Connection, to try out the beer-pairing menus offered in collaboration with Carlsberg Malaysia’s portfolio of beers.
