Eating out isn’t something we take for granted anymore. For KL-ites who aren’t ready to brave the “new normal” yet (read: long queues and social distancing), here are some DIY food and beverage kits that will elevate your culinary experience from your home kitchen.

From gourmet burgers and baking sets to desserts and even booze, these kits can be delivered to your home in Kuala Lumpur.

Can’t get dough to rise to save your life? Thankfully, you won’t “knead” to be a highly skilled baker to bake your very own Malaysian icon – Rotiboy. These Mexican buns filled with butter and topped with a crisp layer of coffee cream are staple snacks for many Malaysians.

Rotiboy’s DIY Home Bakers Kit comes in four flavors – original, buttermilk, mocha, and cheese. Each kit has 15 pieces of frozen bread dough, cream topping, and chocolate chips or grated cheese nibs.

If you miss your weekly ladies’ night outs, the Aloft hotel in KL has boozy cocktail kits for your night-ins. There isn’t much to do, thankfully, the cocktail bags filled with alcoholic concoctions like rum, fruits, and spices have been heat-sealed.

All the DIY you’ll have to do is mix the fruits with the booze and pour it into a glass. Non-booze fans may also opt for the fruit punch mocktail.

Whipping up a professional chef’s version of a gourmet burger takes precious time, and it may not turn out as you would have liked after all. The “MBL At Home” kit can probably save you the trouble of a messy kitchen.

The gourmet food kit makes just enough beef or chicken burgers for two and comes with a free pint of ice cream because there’s always room for dessert. Also, according to myBurgerLab, in case your culinary skills ultimately fail, you can always eat the ice cream.

“If you fail and burn your burger.. no worries you still have a pint of free Inside Scoop ice cream. You can eat that and cry in the corner you noob,” the Instagram post said.

Dessert-hopping is probably something most foodies miss doing, but at least we can recreate some of these sweet treats at home, including kakigori (Japanese shaved ice dessert). 

Mykori Dessert Cafe is well known for capturing kakigori-lovers’ hearts with its sweet, rich Japanese shaved ice on hot days. The cafe’s DIY kakigori kits could probably help you recreate the shaved ice treat of your dreams. Each kit is packed with goodies including shaved ice, milo nuggets, caramel popcorn, boba pearls, and oreo cookies.
