The picture shows the so-called 'satay' that they tried to peddle to us this year. We have a strong suspicion that the chicken was stuck on the stick, boiled, and then painted with kunyit, before having the sticks burnt to lend it an authentic look. David called it 'kunyit chicken on a stick'. The so-called 'kuah kacang' didn't help matters any. So, it was a bad impression.
The next thing that sucked was the so-called laksa. David and I just didn't understand how could anyone in this world possibly under-cook meehoon. It hardly takes a minute to cook it under boiling water. Must of our meehoon was actually crispy. It just did not make any sense at all. And the laksa soup, didn't taste anything like any laksa from any state in Malaysia that I know.
The 'yee sang' and 'rojak' starters were quite good though. So was the 'agar-agar' at the end. Although it was made of 'gula melaka' and 'santan', we all wondered if it was made of coffee. The so-called red bean soup was thick enough to be a bread spread. But it was not bad either.
However, I think that most people enjoyed their time there. The food feast has always been about people, more than the food [at least i think so]. It's a great chance for Malaysians here to meet up, bash the Sporeans on their bad food, and laugh at the 'ang moh' who cannot eat spicy stuff. I had a nice evening even though my camera was hijacked by several different individuals.
UPDATE: Got a bit of stomach upset today. The food hygiene must've been a little sub par.
UPDATE #2: In case anyone is wondering why I was so hyper [more than usual] last night and clapping whenever Aaron gave a speech, it was per Aaron's instruction. I was asked to clap, whenever he gave a speech. So, I did!
