We are Sue and Kat, best friends and owners of Makan Malaysia. Makan means eat in Malay and we set out to share all things Malaysian (history, art, culture) through food. We usually do this by hosting supper clubs, trading at markets, festivals and event catering. Since lockdown started all that had to change and it was quite hard to see our full summer of events get completely scrapped. We took a couple of weeks off to figure out how we could adapt (and have a mini freak out) and now we’re now sending chilled Malaysian food parcels across the UK from a shared community kitchen in Reading. It’s been quite a journey and it keeps changing with every new development and with the ease of lockdown rules so we’re constantly trying to stay ahead of the game! Despite the challenges faced, we’ve found ourselves to be in a relatively fortunate situation, as we don’t have a restaurant premise or staff which meant rent hasn’t been an issue and we haven’t had to face the dilemma of furloughing people, unlike some of our other indie friends.
