U Mobile has collaborated with Tiffin, a multi-layered dining experiences, to offer gourmet meals prepared by three popular local culinary talents that may be enjoyed in the comfort of one’s home during the Ramadan and Raya period.
Called Tiffin Samplers, these meals will be prepared by Pinggan Puteh, Embun Eats and Projek Dapur Umar x Hikayat Percik, and they feature popular Malay dishes like lontong and rendang, but with a modern year 2020 twist.
To make the dining experience even more meaningful, U Mobile is subsidising the price of each Tiffin Sampler with a RM10 discount so that more may try the meals out. On top of that, the mobile Telco is also footing food delivery costs.
The Tiffin Samplers cost RM20 for 1 person or RM40 for 2 person, available for pre-order from 6 May 2020 – 16 June 2020 with free delivery in Klang Valley.

Embun Eats is the brainchild of colleagues Nasha, Erica and Sophea who met 3 years ago and quickly bonded over their shared interest for food. Like many Malaysians, they were proud of our intangible food heritage, versatility of local ingredients and famous makan culture.
Throughout 2019, they travelled to their hometowns, cooked with relatives, listened to their stories, and wrote down their “petua-petua dapur”. They discovered local small-scale producers who were still protecting their craft and met home cooks who “agak-agak-ed” their way to perfecting recipes they inherited. Just like that, Embun Eats was born to build a food experience brand that highlights Malaysia—one plate at a time.
Embun Eats aims to make use of as many local ingredients and fast disappearing techniques as possible while injecting a little bit of fun in the process. Imagine a playful take on old-school classics—like nasi lemak arancini, roti aiskrim eclair, ulam pesto rice salad and coconut kantan cake! By doing so, Embun Eats hopes that its efforts will spark a sense of nostalgia, excitement and pride— but more importantly to tell the stories, and to start the conversations around appreciating, sustaining, evolving, and preserving this part of our treasured heritage.

Projek Dapur Umar
Projek Dapur Umar is the brainchild of Umar, a literature graduate whose culinary interest was sparked by the time he spent in his grandmother’s kitchen. He was inspired to do more and made it a goal to improve and explore his culinary skills.
Projek Dapur Umar’s first commercial dish, the Durian Butter Chicken, was a result of 2 years of research and 3 months of experimentation. Operating on an experimental kitchen concept, their menu changes depending on what Umar has on his mind after months of research. This ensures that diners will get to experience new flavours that fit the Malaysian palate. Eco-conscious diners will also be glad to know that Projek Dapur Umar tries their best to reduce their carbon footprint by using locally sourced ingredients and ulam in most of their dishes.

Hikayat Percik is a pop-up kitchen project by singer-songwriter Ashraf and his wife Kina who is a jewellery artist. They aim to bring out the authentic flavours of the East Coast with a twist, by introducing it in a more contemporary, fun and unconventional setting.
Hikayat carries the tales of faraway places while Percik is reminiscent of home. Their menu is a culmination of the many dinner parties they’ve hosted, entertaining friends from all over the world, each menu curated with a specific interest in mind. They enjoy experimenting with traditional Malay cooking, especially cuisine from the East Coast where Kina is from, with different flavours discovered during their travels.
