Horrid and Fake New England Clam Chowder at KLCC and Yummy Braised Beef Kueytiau at Little Taiwan

Fucking horrid, fake and expensive so-called 'New England Clam Chowder' at London Fish Tales KLCC.



There were exactly one cube of potato and three tiny pathetic clams and LOADS of black pepper. So, don't even try if you crave for clam chowder.



Well, can't complain much. That's the quality you get with less than USD2.

Want some authentic one? Pay more and uhmm, you'll have to fly many many miles away.



Mmmm, mmmm, so heavenly....



This is how an authentic New England Clam Chowder should look like, bahlol London Fish Tales! Where's the oyster crackers also, btw?



I miss Faneuil Hall, Boston.

On the other hand, this is a place you should try - Little Taiwan.



Claypot braised beef kueytiau. Very authentic even though it's not literally from Taiwan. But then again, Malaysia is still part of Asia, right?





Washed down with a glass of red tea.



Lesson of the day: When in the West, don't go for 'ngak gwai lou' (scam white people) inauthentic Asian food and when in the East, don't go for 'oh-I'm-trying-so-hard-to-be-white-with-the-fake-accent-and-food' inauthentic Western food.
