Introducing 'Agak Agak'

Agak Agak

By food entrepreneurs Ili Sulaiman (of Dish by Ili) and Basira Yeusuff (of Root Cellar KL), Agak Agak (meaning ‘more or less’ in Malay) is a new food-based social initiative that’s modeled after Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen, where underprivileged youngsters are trained and mentored for a career in food.

Setting up shop at APW Bangsar, Agak Agak is an eatery that provides one-year apprenticeship programmes for kids from underprivileged communities. These kids will not only learn skills in the kitchen, but they’ll be picking up training in managing and operating an eatery (kitchen service, sales and marketing, food delivery, etc).

The menu is not finalised at time of publish, but you can expect signature dishes from Basira such as terung tempeh masak cili padi, pulut hitam cheese tart, limau purut bundt cake, and more.

Agak Agak will be up and running after Raya on a pop-up basis at Paper Plates at APW, Jalan Riong. Mon-Fri, 7am-5pm.
