This a rather old controversy, so I don’t blame you if you don’t know about it. By old, I mean last year (2018). And in this age, one year in history is basically equivalent to about, I don’t know, a thousand years?

But in case you don’t know anything about Crispy Rendang, you can read everything about it here.

Or my summary:

  1. MasterChef UK contestant cooks nasi lemak with rendang chicken
  2. MasterChef UK judge says rendang not crispy
  3. Malaysians lose their shit
  4. Indonesians and Singaporeans lose their shit
  5. Politicians lose their shit
  6. And the greatest result of all, memes

We’re talking about the greatest timeline, and companies are joining in on the crispy rendang train:

Here at Goody Feed, we were just watching by the side secretly hoping crispy rendang was some kind of super-secret recipe that only a rare few had eaten. Which you can probably tell if you read an old, old review on Popeye’s Aloha Rendang.

And now… Big Fish Small Fish is saying that we can?

Big Fish Small Fish

You know, that fish and chips chain that serves potato crisps by the side instead of actual fries.

They’re doing that by offering a Sedap menu until 6 Oct 2019.

Crispy Rendang Fish and Crisps – S$15.40

BFSF says this is a crispy bite of seabass that’s been coated with bread crumbs and drizzled with spicy and rich rendang sauce, then topped with fresh shallots and toasted coconut flakes.

All to bring out the flavours and feels that come with a hearty bowl of aromatic rendang.

I know, I know. That’s not kind of the crispy rendang chicken you might have imagined. The shop isn’t Big Chicken Small Chicken.

But they’re not just offering crispy rendang.

Ah Hock loved Michelle and asked her, ‘Ai stead mai?’ in the 90s. Today, he tried again but would it work? Prepare some tissue paper and watch their love story here:

Har Cheong Fish Nuggets – S$5.40

Going beyond using memes and controversy for the new menu, BFSF added a spin to the Har Cheong Gai (prawn paste chicken) and turned it into Har Cheong Fish.

I don’t know about you, but seafood and seafood sound like it would go together.

What you get here is dory chunks marinated in prawn paste for 12 hours, then deep-fried till golden brown.

And if you thought they’re done with just 2 items, you’d be wrong.

Churro Balls with Salted Egg Lava Dip – $5.40

It’s the new menu that keeps on giving.

You got to stop, BFSF, there’s only so much my stomach can handle.

Here they combine the best of fried churros with the sweet and salty flavours of salted egg custard.

And so… what’re you waiting for?

The menu is already available at the five outlets in Singapore:

  • Bugis Junction
  • Northpoint City (South Wing
  • Punggol East Container Park
  • Tampines Mall
  • JCube

What we’re going to eat there is for sure going to be crispy.

And with that…

I’ll be seeing you there.
