Little Fat Duck - We convinced them to finally have duck on the menu!

One of the better known trucks in KL, Little Fat Duck gained a following due to their their cheap but filling pastas. Starting…  Continue reading »

FriedChillies collaborated with some of the top Food Truckers in town to come up with special CNY dishes. Now that you've seen the trucks, we are now going to introduce to you (*drumroll) our special CNY dishes. These will be available for you to enjoy at selected Hong Leong Bank branches over 3 weekends (24th January to 8th February). There will be 2 food trucks per branch so keep posted as we give you more information on this unique event.

Just to tease you a little and get people salivating, guess which dish comes from which truck. We will release the truck->food pairing starting tomorrow.

1. Prosperity Pouch Pasta with Creamy 'Boss' Sauce.



The 'Boss' Sauce which is a combination of carbonara and tomato sauce is a signature sauce of this Godfather inspired truck (We are practically giving this clue away). It is stylishly served with little wantan pouches filled with seasoned ground chicken and dusted with chilli flakes and parmesan.

2. Auspicious Nian Gao Burger



What can be more lucky than nian gao turned cunningly into a crispy burger patty? This is served with fresh lettuce…  Continue reading »

The Best Ever Baja Fish Tacos

Chef-In-Residence
Absolutely delicious. There, those are the two words I’m going to use to describe these fish tacos. I didn’t even use fancy pants ingredients or techniques, but humble stuff like onions and cabbage, yet the flavours were great and incredibly addictive. And don't worry this recipe is easy to make as well.   More »

Szechuan peppers are a variety of pepper renowned for that characteristic ‘tingling’ sensation they leave on the lips and tongue. We sprinkled some toasted ground Szechuan peppers over piping hot fried chicken for an addictive, lip-smacking snack. Yum!

"Scones the way it should be: buttery and tender!"

I just had the best scones I’ve ever eaten in KL. They were buttery, tender and full of flavour. I had scones in these flavours: chocolate, oatmeal, raisin, plain and their special (at the time) Christmas scone which had white chocolate and cranberries. My favourite was the chocolate scone that has a great sweet and bitter taste from high quality cocoa. And I REALLY wish the Christmas scone would be present all year round: so good! The plain, oatmeal and raisin scones were exemplary too. I struck up a conversation with the Chef Justin Wong, owner and Scone-Master extraordinaire. What was his secret to delicious scones?
