KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 19 — By now you may have heard that David Beckham is coming to town this Friday.
The former global football superstar is ready to get a taste of Malaysia by chowing down on some good ol’ nasi lemak as part of the AIA Healthy Living Tour.
The man called “Becks” will sample three variations of the national dish which has been given a healthy spin by local restaurants.
The Good Co, Meal in Box and dahmakan are the outlets ready to step up to the plate for the former England captain, an athlete who spent decades playing football at the topmost level.
The Good Co chef Levy Li told Malay Mail she started engineering healthy diets when her father was diagnosed with a life-threatening disease.
“I saw all this happening around me, people getting sick, putting on weight and generally not being healthy,” she said.
“The Good Co was born with the intention of educating people by serving a variety of healthier fast food with Asian flavours.”
“We can’t wait to serve The Good Co.’s version of nasi lemak to Beckham!” she added
