Premiering on May 7, 2012, 10.30pm every Monday on TLC (Astro Channel 707), The Food Surprise sees food guru KF Seetoh armed with a camera crew goes into an eatery without permission, chows down and pays for the food.
His journey in this 13-part series with Makansutra, takes him to hawker stalls, restaurants and street food carts in several locations in Malaysia – from Penang, through Ipoh, her capital Kuala Lumpur, a tiny seaside town Sekinchan, Johor Baru and Singapore.
The Food Surprise shows the moments when he gets thrown out, wakes up a restaurant manager from her late noon siesta, and gets in line, like everyone else, for a 20 minute wait for his food.
I had the opportunity to be his dining guide during the filming in Penang. It was a great time, seeing the happenings behind-the-scene.
The Food Surprise will also makes its debut on TLC (Starhub Channel 427) every Monday in Singapore at 10.30pm.
* Many thanks to Makansutra for laying on this invitation.
