With 80% of Malaysian adults now fully vaccinated, businesses that were previously closed physically such as food courts, malls, markets and even cinemas can go back to operating as normal.

That said, the norm that we’ve come to know has to continue and that means wearing masks, social distancing, and not crowding up physical spaces. And if you’ve gotten very used to staying inside, like many of us, there are promotions available that allow you to still support small businesses from the comfort of your home. 

For example, Grab is currently running a 30% off for small businesses on their platform on GrabFood and GrabMart, from 24 to 30 September, 2021.

Hyping up the small F&Bs

If you’re tired of the same ol’ fast food that you’ve been having ever since the lockdown started, Grab actually has an extensive list of small businesses. Especially during the pandemic, many of the traditional and small businesses have hopped onto the platform.

The Bassment [Non-Halal] is one of the local restaurants that has been operating even before the pandemic. It is run by two deaf brothers, and a younger, abled brother. Their menu primarily consists of Asian-western fusion dishes, and they have a variety of coffee and cakes for the tea time crowd too.

But if you’re in the mood to dig into more local flavours, Kadei by Manchula can be a good shout too. They started their operations during the height of the pandemic back in August 2020. They offer a range of Malaysian-Indian cuisines ranging from Indomie Lamb Chop to the classical banana leaf rice or lamb biryani.

Did you know: Kadei by Manchula’s name was inspired by the Tamil pronunciation of ‘shop’, and a play on the word kedai in Malay.

However, if heavy meals are not your cup of tea, you could also consider picking up a bao from The Bao Guys. As their name suggests, they focus mainly on baos. From a quick glance on their menu, they look to be pork-free. They currently offer chicken, tofu, shrimp, lamb and beef baos.

For the week of September 24 to September 30, 2021, you can use the code PENIAGAKECIL on your orders to get 30% off your order from the businesses above.

Delivering essentials and groceries right to you

But if you’ve only used Grab for GrabFood, they actually have a large list of businesses under GrabMart for your daily essentials.

For example, Khairul Gracewood Enterprise located in Pasar Besar TTDI is a butchery offering a variety of local and Australian beef, along with select cuts of lambs. So you won’t even have to step out to get fresh meat to cook with.

And if you have a special occasion coming on, you can also order from 21st Flower Bar on GrabMart. While they’re called a flower bar, they don’t really sell cocktails or drinks. Instead, they sell preserved dried flowers, soap flowers, fresh flowers, candles and jewellery.

Let’s say that your significant other is not a fan of flowers; you can then opt to buy them brownies from Brownies Bar by The Accidental Bakers. They have a wide mix of brownie flavours ranging from salted caramel, peanut butter, cookies & cream and others.

Just like the F&B shops on GrabFood, you can also use the code PENIAGAKECIL to get 30% off your orders for these small businesses.


Here’s how the promo works when you use the code PENIAGAKECIL:

  • GrabFood: 30% off up to RM8 with a minimum order of RM20,
  • GrabMart: 30% off up to RM9 with a minimum order of RM30,

Note that the promotion is only until 30 September 2021. There are a lot more other small businesses that are also part of this promotion. You can check the full list on Grab’s site here to find one near you.
