Note: Agak Agak is now closed
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 here is a modern, updated version of some local dishes such as kacang pool and nasi ulam. One standout dish we’ve tried is the chilli pâté mee, a non-porky take on the classic chilli pan mee using chicken liver and minced chicken. If you’re staying for dessert, get one of the bundt cakes – there’s limau nipis, kacang tumbuk and Earl Grey milk tea.
