Food time again merry goers!
With so much food around, there is no stopping me from sharing with you all the latest craze in town and if you still do not know what I am talking about, read on! Food trucks are so popular lately they are totally mushrooming all over town. Convenient, economical and also tasty.. what's not to like about Food Trucks?
Well now introducing one of the latest Food Trucks in town which is the Little Red Food Truck which is the collaboration between Mission Foods as well as Australian MasterChef winner, author and TV host Adam Liaw! Malaysian-born Adam was engaged to create the menu for the Mission-sponsored Food Truck which have started making its rounds in selected spots in the Klang Valley starting June 15. Adam shot to fame by winning the Australian Masterchef Season 2, which still holds the record as the most watched programme in Australia. His unassuming ways, and his amazing talent with food made him the show’s favourite. Here he will be showcasing his much loved signature style, inspired by his time in Malaysia. Adam Liaw’s collaboration with Mission Foods will be bringing something new to the local food scene, as there has never been an international celebrity chef linked to a food truck in Malaysia.
The Little Red Food Truck features mouthwatering recipes from the famed chef using Mission Foods products such as wraps and naan. Although the there’s been an onset of Food Trucks in the Klang Valley recently, this will be the first food truck that features the entire menu by an international chef. If you are a fan of Adam Liaw or have been following MasterChef seasons, you can now look forward to having a taste of his recipes right here in Malaysia! There are five main items on the menu that Adam is sure Malaysians will love as it’s Asian-inspired yet with his signature flair – Laksa Fried Chicken Wrap with Pineapple Salsa, Beef Bulgogi Kimchi Wrap, Coconut Prawn Wrap with Spicy Tamarind Mayonnaise, Lamb Shank Rendang with Sweet Radish Achar, and Roast Carrot Hummus with Avocado Wrap.
Laksa Fried Chicken Wrap with Pineapple Salsa
Adam has taken laksa as we know it to whole new level with the Laksa Fried Chicken Wrap with Pineapple Salsa. Each tender piece of chicken is marinated with a special laksa paste recipe, then deep fried on the truck before topping with a refreshing pineapple salsa, fresh with every order. Each bite promises an explosion of taste and textures. This is seriously good! It taste just like eating Laksa but in a wrap! The fried chicken was fried crispy but still moist and tender on the inside and the pineapple salsa just gives it that tangy kick.
Beef Bulgolgi Kimchi Wrap
For those of you who know me well, I am a die hard fan of Korean food and seriously I can eat Kimchi for every meal. The hearty, mouthwatering Beef Bulgogi Kimchi Wrap is Korean inspired and will definitely be a popular choice in Malaysia. It is a great choice to jazz up breakfast or lunch. The kimchi was matured at the right age giving it a sourish kick to the wrap and the beef bulgolgi.. OMG is seriously so tender and flavourful, the bulgolgi marinade really penetrates the meat leaving me wanting for more!
Coconut Prawn Wrap with Spicy Tamarind Mayonnaise
If beef is not your thing then there’s the aromatic Coconut Prawn Wrap with Spicy Tamarind Mayonnaise, promising all the flavours that Malaysians love but reordered in the most delightful way. Biting into this wrap will be an experience on its own. The prawn was fresh and juicy with the tamarind mayonnaise which had a unique flavour in it.
Lamb Rendang with Sweet Radish Achar
Now this is unique! To suit almost everyone’s palate, there’s the hunger-inducing Lamb Shank Rendang with Sweet Radish Achar. Rendang is given a gourmet twist with an unforegettable crunch and sweetness from the achar. The achar gives the overal wrap more texture and crunch plus the lamb shank was cooked tender and melts right off your tongue.
Roast Carrot Hummus with Avocado Wrap
For those looking for something lighter and for the vegetarians, there’s the Roast Carrot Hummus with Avocado Wrap, which is creamy and sweet from the mashed caramelized carrots, deliciously buttery from the avocados and with a slight crunch from the fresh vegetables. We guarantee one is not enough! This is a unique wrap with hummus which is a rather acquired taste. The hummus and avocado makes this wrap rich and creamy and definitely a filling wrap.
The gourmet wraps are for sale on The Little Red Food Truck which will be making its rounds in the Klang Valley following a set weekly schedule which will be shared on Mission Foods Malaysia’s facebook site, www.facebook.com/missionfoodsmalaysia.
