Open House

Open House

What’s it like to be a refugee in Malaysia?

Imagine being in the home of a Picha chef, meeting the family, and understanding their life journey – while enjoying an authentic home-cooked meal prepared by them!

From fragrant basmati rice, Middle Eastern shawarma wraps to hummus and dessert, we make sure that you will be well-fed with an amazing feast prepared by the family.

The Picha Project has hosted over 1000 guests since 2017, with all guests agreeing that it is a once in a lifetime experience to listen to the personal stories and issues of refugee families* who fled war zones and came to Malaysia, and to understand their culture through food.

Gather a group of friends or bring your team for a private open house with us!

Private Booking: RM1200 for 15 pax (excluding 6% SST)

*Current families with The Picha Project include families from Syria, Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, Myanmar (Rohingya & Chin) and Sudan.

The one thing that strikes me the most about attending one of the Open Houses is the genuine hospitality I get from the different host families each time.
They really make you feel like part of their family with their warm reception and inviting smiles. The loving care that is put into preparing the wonderful and generous spread of different dishes is so very apparent.

The best part of this is that the Open House also feeds your mind. The simple, but enlightening session on the plight of refugees in Malaysia and their issues is so educational. It is something that we may know about or heard about but so often blind ourselves to their struggles.”
