Ever wanted to feel what it’s like to be dining in your own private jet? Then, the Plane in the City is made for you. Yup, that’s right! It’s a restaurant inside a Boeing 737 aircraft! Located at the aptly-named Skyland in Jalan Bukit Bintang, the food is served exclusively by Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur (and yes, it’s halal-certified!).

“Passengers” get to choose three Plane in the City packages  — Economy class, Business class and First class — and you’ll be served three or four courses depending on the package chosen. Also, make sure your camera’s fully charged as you’ll be able to take some photos on the aircraft’s wing area as well as in the pilot’s cockpit. It’ll be a truly memorable experience!

While the prices could be on the steep side, you can save up by booking on Traveloka!

Challenge your fear of heights at Dinner in the Sky. Dinner in the Sky is an elevated dining experience, whereby you’re strapped onto seats attached to a crane and then drawn up to 50 meters in the air! Yes, you’ll literally have dinner while hanging in the air! 

Located in the heart of Bukit Bintang, a glittering view of Kuala Lumpur’s skyline accompanies you while you enjoy a delicious three-course dinner. If you’re wondering whether the experience alone is just a gimmick and have doubts about the quality of the food, fret not, the food is also yummy! Prepared by Element Kuala Lumpur, you’ll have a choice of either beef, fish or chicken dish and there’s also a vegetarian menu so you veggie lovers will not feel left out.

Psst… You can also enjoy some savings when you get your tickets to this dining experience on Traveloka.


Let a tiny chef cook your dinner at Le Petit Chef

You’ve probably seen the viral video of a small animated chef “cooking” on your table, all through a 3D project mapping technology. Well, you’re lucky because Malaysia is the first country in Southeast Asia to host Le Petit Chef, a.k.a “the world’s smallest chef”! What does it mean, you ask? Well, the culinary experience is a combination of sight, sound and delicious food prepared by Chef Steve Ariffin at Elements Kuala Lumpur. 

Diners will be entertained by the 58mm tall chef, who gets into all sorts of hilarious acts in his attempts to “cook” your dinner, and each animation is seamlessly projected into real-life meals. But don’t worry, the meals are cooked by real-life chefs! The best part is, the dishes often bear a striking resemblance to the animated drawings of food! It’s certainly an interesting experience that no one should miss! You’ll leave having not just a great meal, but also a captivating show.
