M’sian Restaurant Cheese Banjir Also Has Cheese Durian Milo Milkshake
Mention fusion food and the first thing that comes to mind are wacky dishes combining wildly different cuisines.
If that’s as adventurous as you’d get, Cheese Banjir’s latest creation might be too strange for you.
Chicken Chop Milo Earthquake, is the latest food mashup by the Kuala Lumpur restaurant. We’re conflicted about the combination, but since we can’t say no to Milo, maybe it’s worth a shot.
Have you ever dipped your finger in a tin of Milo powder?
You may be able to relive that childhood thrill in a cup of Milo dinosaur now, but we all know the small powdery hill on top isn’t enough.
Why not take the Milo addiction a step further and have it in your main dish too?
Cheese Banjir takes huge chicken fillets, dips them in a spicy homemade batter and double coats them in flour before deep frying them.
Once the fillets turn golden brown, they’re cooled before getting chucked into a bag of Milo powder and shaken up like shaker fries.
The result — a crispy, spicy chicken fillet fully coated in chocolatey Milo goodness.
Imagine taking a lick of the sweet Milo coating, biting into the crunchy batter and digging your teeth in the warm and juicy piece of chicken.
We’re not drooling, you are.
To make the Milo and fried chicken pairing even more sinful, you’ll get a serving of sambal belacan and Milo sauce to dip your chicken in.
The spicy kick of the sambal complements the sugary sweetness of the Milo. Or you can satisfy your sweet tooth and go full-on chocolate with the Milo sauce.
The dish comes with generous side servings of salad, mashed potatoes and spaghetti carbonara, so there’s no way you’ll be hungry after the meal.
But if you’re not ready to go big yet, you can settle for the Milo Chicken Popcorn Platter which comes in bite-sized portions with choices of beef or fish.
The new menu just launched on Thursday (20 Dec), so if you hurry there, you might be among the first to try.
Other wild inventions
This isn’t the first time Cheese Banjir is going viral on social media. Their controversial Cheese Milo Durian Kaw took the Internet by storm earlier this year.
Your usual iced Milo is topped with frothy, creamy cheese and a big portion of durian; all the biggest sins in one drink. LiHo, who?
Other dishes you can look out for are the Aglio Olio with Amazonian lobster, which is only RM35 (S$11.46) for this massive serving.
Their meatza uses beef or lamb as the pizza base, which is great for those of us who are cutting out carbs from our diet.
Prices range from S$16.05-35.70 (RM49-109) depending on the choice of meat and pizza size.
Definitely go for the cheesier dishes, to see why the restaurant got its name which literally translates to ‘cheese flood’.
End your year with a bang and plan a trip to KL this holiday to taste some of the wild and wonderful offerings at Cheese Banjir.
