Crispy Rendang Actually Existed In Singapore

By now, you should be familiar with the Crispy Rendang saga. Judges of MasterChef UK,  John Torode and Gregg Wallace were grilled by netizens over their comments of Malaysia-born contestant Zaleha Kadir Olpin’s dish.

The judges’ comments caused quite a stir on social media, sparking off a debate in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.

While many find serving a plate of “crispy Rendang” sounds as impossible as it is ridiculous, a fast food chain actually tried to create crispy Rendang long before #RendangGate.

In 2017, KFC had launched a Rendang Rice Bucket in Singapore for a period of time. The meal consisted of rice with popcorn chicken (fried boneless chicken), glazed with rendang sauce.

Although the item has been taken off the menu, a Facebook post regarding the dish was revived by netizens.

In response to comments, KFC replied with an equally cheeky response:

It seems like the only ones who had the privilege of trying out “crispy Rendang” are Singaporeans. Perhaps it’s time to bring it back on KFC SG’s menu?
