Instant noodle lovers get a load of this!
This week the 7th World Instant Noodle Summit took place at the KL Convention Centre. The leaders of the World Instant Noodle Association (WINA) met to discuss the future of instant noodles as a dietary staple.
Did you know that in 2009 more than 92billion servings of instant noodles were consumed? It is these numbers that are getting the instant noodle giants to look at what they can improve in terms of health, taste, convenience, hygiene, and price.
In general, instant noodles don Continue reading »
So its official! FriedChillies.Com is a nominee for the Le Cordon Blue Media Awards 2010 under the Best Food Website Category
. I got an email from the committee last week but they told me to keep it a bit hush! hush! first because they have not made it official. Then Robyn of EatingAsia tweeted it. Well, I guess that there's no secret on the Internet. Thanks anyway Robyn!
I guess that it's a honour being nominated by a panel of jury of over 50 industry professionals around the world. We are also lucky as I think the nomination also reflects the huge interest the world now have on Asian and Malaysian cuisine. I would like to humbly say that there are better food websites out there than us, sites that inspire us (and these are local sites that talk about Malaysian food) but maybe the jury saw a site with potential and decided that this is worth a good nomination. We'd like to thank the Le Cordon Bleu Media Award Juries for this. Can we win? I seriously don't know. Have you seen the other Food Website nominees?

"A burst of exciting flavours"
The menu has a large mix of Asian and Western food. I was happy to see a pretty extensive salad menu, one of my favourite treats especially on hot days when a heavy meal just isn’t appealing. The Aloo Chat salad was the one that immediately caught my eye. So we ordered that as well as a burger and their specialty club sandwich.
Once the salad made its way over to the table I was a little confused by its appearance. It almost looked like a hot chickpea curry of some sort and I was worried it wouldn’t be the refreshing treat I had been anticipating. Upon first bite this was bursting with exciting flavours. The mix of creamy chickpeas melds well with the crunchy onions, greens, and little crispy pastry bites. The highlight of the dish though is the creamy sweet and soury yoghurt tamarind dressing. The pastry bites are like croutons that soak up the dressing and become chewy and gooey…yummy! This is just one of those dishes that will have you coming back for more.
I am a burger fanatic, and the burger here is quite good! The meat is extremely juicy and tender. It pretty much falls apart in your hands so you might want to eat it with a fork and knife if you don’t want to make a mess. The patty itself is mixed in with pine nuts for additional flavour. This comes with the usual toppings as well as pickles and cheese and a generous slather of mayonnaise. Delish!

"Little buttery bites of heaven"
A friend of mine took me to visit this quaint little café saying that they have the best scones in Malaysia. Not being much of a scone fan, I accepted the invite seeing it purely as an opportunity to catch up with some friends. We ordered a scone set to share and also decided on a slice of coconut passion fruit cheesecake and a sticky date pudding.
When the scones arrived I picked one up and slathered it with a generous amount of clotted cream and jam and took a bite. It was firm yet soft, warm and buttery, the perfect bite of scone. My senses were immediately awakened! It was as though I tasted scones for the first time. It's no wonder I never cared much about them before. These little buttery bites of heaven were so good that I went back to the café three days in a row in need of my fix. I had gone from not giving scones the slightest thought, to a full-fledged addict with withdrawal symptoms to boot. There has got to be heroin in these things!
The other desserts are deathly delicious as well. The cheesecake is rich and creamy topped with passion fruit and just a slight hint of coconut. The cookie base resembles an oreo, but a homemade oreo with far more flavour. The sticky date pudding is wonderfully datey and the caramel it sits atop is lovely.
