Chef Ben Milbourne Experiences Far More Singapore

Chef Ben Milbourne Experiences Far More Singapore


Hey guys! Dee Kosh here, Singaporean YouTuber,
and you know what? I heard that someone famous from Australia is here in Singapore. He’s
none other than Ben Milbourne Ben was a finalist on Masterchef Australia,
and now he’s a celebrity chef with his own TV show and restaurant Now he’s in Singapore to shoot his food
programme, but what does he know about Singaporean food? That’s where I come in. I’m going to infiltrate
his show, to show him how we eat our food I’m going to show him Far More Singapore
than he expects Let’s go! Ok sir your prata come already Roti kosong (plain), roti egg, prata curry
and something special Thank you. So the origin of this dish is south
Indian, but – The curry very special sir, you see the potato?
Very special potato Thank you So I just said the – And you also have to learn to eat the prata
properly Mate we’re filming here I’m going to teach you how to eat the prata
properly You’re going to teach me how to eat it? Yes, because I’m Dee Kosh, a Singaporean
YouTuber, and I’m going to teach you how, because who else can teach you how to eat
Singaporean food – Guys it’s alright – other than a Singaporean, right? That actually makes sense What do we do? This is what you do, take the prata – eat
with your hands, it’s better with your hands – usually you just dip it in the curry,
and that’s it But in Singapore, we like to dip it in sugar What do you think? Woah! Curry’s really rich, the roti’s
really rich, this also has savoury and spice So you add it with some sweetness, it’s
beautiful! It is beautiful. And you know what’s even
more beautiful? What we use to wash it down This is Milo Dinosaur It’s basically Milo, with Milo sprinkles
on top So you eat it off the top or drink it? You can mix it in, it gets quite messy The best food gets messy Exactly, so you just drink it like that What do you think? Woah! That is strong! You like it? I feel like a 12-year old! I’m sure you do Well you know what? This is Far More Singapore While the crew is setting up behind me, what
I’m going to do is I’m going to sub as Ben’s boom guy I’m literally going to Boom Bomb Ben This is one of the reasons why Singapore is
a food-obsessed nation This is one of the reasons why Singapore is
a food-obsessed nation Hey – get it – Hey! Dee Kosh! You’re a terrible boom operator I am a terrible boom operator But I like eating And I’m going to show you how to eat this
national dish the right way So from what I understand it’s chicken and
rice, but there’s got to be more to it than that if you guys love it so much There’s much more than just chicken and
rice What it is… is you have to mix all 3 sauces
with your rice There’s a lot going on here, and if you’re
a rookie you’d have no idea how to put this together That’s why I’m here First, the chilli sauce All of it? All of it. All in! I wouldn’t have done that. Or that Ginger – and then your black sauce, right
on top Go ahead, try it Woah. Woah! That has got a lot of flavour See that’s the thing about Singaporean food It assaults and yet rewards your tastebuds Very nice! Well I’m going to use that So you’re going to keep hacking my show? Your show? This is my show I heard that Ben’s been paranoid that I
would crash his filming Well you know what I’m going to do? I’m going to go all out to show him Far
More Singapore We’re in a hawker centre, which all these
little permanent stalls behind me They sell food, lots of different food, but
normally just one thing from one place This is what we’ve come here for and this
is carrot – Hey hey hey ah ha! I knew it! I knew it! I knew it! I knew you’d
turn up So close! I knew you’d turn up, so I’ve been practising Have you? See how I go Carrot cake – black and white – this one’s
got a sweet soy, this one’s got more egg so it’s nice and crispy How am I going? Impressed! I’m impressed that you’re far
more Singaporean than I trained you to be But you know what? This is carrot cake That’s carrot cake as I would expect See how it’s in the shape of a cake, and
there’s carrot in it? If you ordered this in Australia this is probably
what you’d get right? That’s what we’d get Exactly. But here in Singapore this is called
cai tau kway Cai tau kway Yes! Well said! The reason why you might be confused it’s
carrot cake but there’s no carrot in it at all There’s no carrot! Exactly! It’s because “carrot” and “radish”
in Chinese is the same word Ah! So it’s lost in translation Exactly I’m a little confused with the whole “cake”
thing Rice cake. It’s made with rice cake Ah! So this is rice cake Alright, black and white, what’s your favourite? I like black Alright I’m going to try the black first What do you think? Really tasty! The sweet soy is what drives
it So that’s where the flavour comes from That’s a really flavoursome dish I’m expecting this to be a little bit lighter Try it Which one do you like better? Different times of the day I reckon If it’s breakfast, I’d go for this for
sure Dinnertime, if I’m after some comfort food,
really craving something yummy, this is the way that I would go That’s the thing about Singapore We have the black cai tau kway, the white
one and also the carrot cake You know, sold at most hipster cafés that
would love to have a celebrity chef like you there I don’t know about that But what I do know is that I love Singaporean
food for the exact same reason Mixing of cultures, and the food is just yummy! I agree, and this is Far More Singapore than
you expected, right? Far More Singapore than I came for Let’s eat! I can’t eat without chopsticks Auntie! Uncle! Huh who? Auntie and uncle? Yeah
