Maybe Gregg Wallace would finally approve
Earlier, we thought that one Michelin star Peranakan restaurant Candlenut was the only one gallant enough to put controversy in a headlock to offer what seems like a culinary taboo - crispy chicken rendang. Oh, how we were wrong.
In fact, two local eateries and one furniture giant have risen to the occasion to make lemonade out of the #rendanggate debacle. While Candlenut's version was only available for one night of its eight anniversary, these new contenders offer theirs slightly longer, giving everyone a taste of MasterChef UK Judge Gregg Wallace's infuriating remark.
So here are three places to sink your teeth into crispy chicken rendang, for now:
Trust Mod-Sin culinary establishment CreatureS to court controversy with its own version of the crispy chicken rendang. Served with a gentle hill of butterfly pea blue-dyed rice, the dish offers an enormous chicken leg that has been gloriously fried, before slathered with traditional rendang gravy. Prettily plated with a fistful of Asian herbs, the crispy chicken rendang also comes with a slice of omelette and what-looks-like a tear of fried chicken skin, wedged into the accompanying hill of rice. The dish is available during dinnertime.
