Our AFA dinner is a Full House!

by Honey, on Mon, April 13, 2009 - 12:42:09 AM, 0 comment
Finally after all those long weeks of planning and juggling 15 balls in the air, the circus known as The Annual Foodsters' Awards came to town. Well it came to Pannaz in a cosy little corner of Damansara Perdana but in our world of FriedChillies it's a big deal indeed, worthy of a Big Top, fanfare and dancing elephants on tightropes. It's our first awards of many to come to mainly celebrate the very best of Malaysian street food and mom and pop eateries. Before we get down to the nitty gritty of the night, we like to give a shout out to our generous sponsors, Maggi for all the lovely hampers and goodie bag stuff and HTC for their sleek sexy phones we used to GPS the winners. Also to Chef Anas of Pannaz who shifted out 80 main courses promptly and throwing in the canapes for free. A FriedChillies salute to all of you.

On the night all the guests got one of these little…  Continue reading »

Where To Eat

Alisan Laksa

by Li Ann, on Fri, April 10, 2009

"Abso-fishing-lutely delicious!"

This is a nondescript stall along a row of similar looking stalls. Other owners try to entice you to their establishments but this lone stall at the end of the row requires no hawking whatsoever. The crowd speaks for itself. It’s the only stall where patrons patiently wait in line to order, pay and collect their food without a word of complaint. Everything is self-service and waiting time depends on how many hungry souls are ahead of you. If you wish to be served then feel free to patronize the other stalls. But if you’re looking for one of the most authentic Kedahan/Pg fare in PJ town, trust me it’s worth the wait!

This is how it works. Go to the back of the queue and wait for your turn. Once it is your turn, the proprietor will take your order. Move over to the other side to pay and collect your order. Help yourself to the side condiments like prawn paste, cili padi, chilli sauce and lime slices to spice up your dish. Take your tray and walk to any available tables in front of the stall. Take note to only sit at the designated tables as the other hawkers tend to be territorial with the seating arrangement. A word of caution though – while waiting in line, be prepared for a visual array of yummy dishes being paraded in front of you. Only the strong-willed would not be tempted to top up their intended order, for fear of enduring that hellish queue all over again.

Due to its proximity to Penang, Sungai Petani food is rather similar to its more famous counterpart though there are subtle differences. The laksa here is served in a shallow bowl with fork and spoon. Soup is not as loaded with fish meat (as the Penang style would be) and comes with the usual lettuce, onions and cucumber. Help yourself to the cili padi and sliced lime condiments for that extra zing. Yup, definitely a nice fusion of Chinese and Malay influences here. After what seemed like an eternity, I finally got my bounty and sat at the nearest table.   More »

Remember that song we sang during childhood? Hot cross buns, hot cross buns, one a penny, 2 a penny, hot cross buns! But did you know that hot cross buns are traditionally served during Easter? Well actually they are served during Good Friday and the cross on the buns signify the crucifixion.

But set that morbid thought aside, other than…   More »

New Launches
So... the rumours are true. Krispy Kreme is opening in KL. If you are a donuts fan, this is some news you'd want to hear.
