I was excited to have my Ayam Bakar today, as I arrived a little late yesterday and it was sold out. In case you were wondering, Ayam Bakar is BBQ chicken, Indonesian style. It was a little disappointing to find out that the Ayam Bakar at Hougang1 isn’t quite as good as the store in the back corner of the Plaza Singapura food court.
Still, I looked at my slightly dry chicken and thought I would add some sauce to the rice and meat.
I knew I could withstand most chilli. And I probably could have done this round too, had I not heaped four huge scoops all over my chicken and rice.
I learned a valuable lesson today: if there are many chilli seeds in a sauce. It will be hot.
