It’s certainly hard to go wrong with fried chicken, so I get it.
I was quickly scanning the menu at McDonald’s during a stopover at the Bangkok airport, and I saw that they had a savoury pie on the menu.
I almost did a double take. Wait, what? Did I just see that? I glanced around to confirm that I was looking the McDonald’s menu. And yep, there it was: the Chicken BBQ Pie.
This is going to be a shorter post, because the meal I had at Ayam Goreng Spesial Lombok Idjo was fine — it was perfectly tasty — but nothing about it particularly stood out.
Ayam Geprek is one of those dishes where the gulf between how it looks and how it tastes could not possibly be wider.
It looks absolutely bizarre and completely unappetizing — just a brown melange of chicken scraps and rice. But it tastes outstanding.
McDonald’s in Indonesia might just sell the best thing I’ve ever tasted at a McDonald’s. It’s kind of crazy how good it is.
The lumpia from Harga Lumpia Samijaya is basically the best spring roll I’ve ever had.
Chinese New Year threw a huge monkey wrench into my Penang plans; something like 75 percent of the restaurants I tried to go to turned out to be closed.
But in the case of Tong Lek 8 Cafe, I’m not even mad. I randomly found it after the place I wanted to go to turned out to be closed; I’m so glad I got to try out their amazing food.
I’ve been seeing a lot of ads for KFC Malaysia’s Parmesan Truffle Crunch. It certainly looks good; I figured I may as well give it a shot.
It was one of the worst meals I’ve had in a long, long time.
I Love Yoo is a Malaysian breakfast chain that specializes in youtiao (fried dough sticks) and rice porridge. I’m really not sure why it’s not called “I Love You,” since youtiao is almost always spelled starting with y-o-u and not y-o-o, but that’s neither here nor there.
