Miami Grill is not an uncommon brand in South Florida, United States. It is a privately owned chain of restaurants that started back in the 1980’s of another name but has been rebranded a few times to the latest in 2015, which is Miami Grill.
The chain has approximately 31 locations in Florida, Hawaii, Indiana and South Carolina. And only a few weeks ago, Miami Grill Restaurant and Event Space can also be found in Malaysia – which happens to be the only non-U.S. country that Miami Grill has come to. Not forgetting to mention that this is the same company who’s equity partner is non other than the famous international superstar, Pitbull!
How cool is that?
Miami Grill Smoked Chicken Launch at SME Corp Plaza Sentral
It was just another regular day that 21st November 2018, but located at SME Corp Plaza Sentral, a new brand of food and restaurant by Malaysia’s own Bumiputra SME and women-owned company, Selasih Journal Sdn Bhd was launched.
The event was launched by YB Datuk Seri Mohd Redzuan bin Md Yusof, Minister of Entrepreneur Development and attended by YB Datuk Wira Dr. Mohd Hatta Md Ramli, Deputy Minister of Entrepreneur Development; Miss Michiko Mishikawa, Second Secretary Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries & Environment Embassy of Japan in Malaysia; Mr Rizal bin Nainy, Deputy CEO of SME Corp Malaysia.
YB Datuk Seri Mohd Redzuan bin Md Yusof, Minister of Entrepreneur Development in his speech said that the government of Malaysia is steadfast in its efforts to provide a conducive environment for innovation and entrepreneurship so that a culture of entrepreneurship in Malaysia can be promoted to both urban and rural entrepreneurs.
“Three important quality traits that an entrepreneur must have : creativity, courage and candor. Creativity is the ability to think beyond everyone else in the market and produce a new way of doing things. Courage is to have the daring streak to be different, comfortable in embrasing risk especially for the right reasons. Candor is when an entrepreneur needs to have an open mind and refuse to simply stick with the status quo,” said YB Datuk Seri Mohd Redzuan bin Md Yusof.
He hopes that the allocations and supports provided to entrepreneurs in form of grants and incentives could continue to spur the growth of SMEs and become game changers of Malaysia through adoption of new technologies, human capital development, promotion of entrepreneurship, export promotion, innovation and R&D.

What is so special about Miami Grill Smoked Chicken?
The Miami Grill Smoked Chicken comes in two different flavours: Original and, With Chipotle Sauce.
Where the Original Smoked Chicken can be cooked with our usual Malaysian flavours like “Masak Lemak Cili Padi” or added into Steamboat, the Smoked Chicken With Chipotle Sauce however has a tangy and smoky flavour that it is best to eat just as it is. You do have to heat it up in the microwave first however – a three minute heat in the microwave would be all set for a good meal.
Miami Grill has launched it’s First Retail Frozen Ready to Eat (RTE) Product in the world and has chosen Malaysia as it’s first country to introduce this product. Not only that, the Miami Grill Smoked Chicken is also certified with JAKIM Halal certification, ISO, Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) and MESTI.
So there’s no reason for my fellow Muslim friends to not try this amazing and delicious RTE food!
To top it all off, not only Miami Grill Smoked Chicken is sold in AEON Malaysia, Selasih Journal Sdn Bhd is working closely with AEON to enter the Japanese market for the preparation of Halal Food during Olympics 2020 in Japan! This initiative has already gotten approval from the Ministry of Health Japan too!
