I don’t think the hosts even know what this dish is supposed to look and taste like. Malaysians around the world were not amused.
“I like the rendang flavour, there’s a coconut sweetness. However, the chicken skin isn’t crispy. It can’t be eaten and all the sauce is on the skin so I can’t eat it,” Mr Wallace remarked.
The rendang was served alongside nasi lemak, often seen as Malaysia’s unofficial national dish (also found in Singapore).
The dish consists of coconut milk-infused rice accompanied by various ingredients such as a fried egg, cucumber slices, tiny fried anchovies, peanuts, and a hefty dollop of a spicy chilli paste known as sambal - and served in a banana leaf.
Hmm… sounds delicious.
