Mission Foods, the world leader in flatbreads and tortilla chips launched The Little Red Food Truck in Malaysia in collaboration with Australian MasterChef winner, author, and TV host, Adam Liaw. Malaysian-born Adam has been engaged to create the menu for the Mission-sponsored Food Truck which will start making its rounds in selected spots in the Klang Valley starting June 15.
The Little Red Food Truck features mouth-watering recipes from the famed chef using Mission Foods products such as wraps and naan. Although the there’s been an onset of Food Trucks in the Klang Valley recently, this will be the first food truck that features the entire menu by an international chef. Fans of Adam Liaw can now look forward to having a taste of his recipes right here in Malaysia!
There are five main items on the menu that Adam is sure Malaysians will love as it’s Asian-inspired yet with his signature flair – Laksa Fried Chicken Wrap with Pineapple Salsa, Beef Bulgogi Kimchi Wrap, Coconut Prawn Wrap with Spicy Tamarind Mayonnaise, Lamb Shank Rendang with Sweet Radish Achar, and Roast Carrot Hummus with Avocado Wrap.
Adam has taken laksa as we know it to whole new level with the Laksa Fried Chicken Wrap with Pineapple Salsa. Each tender piece of chicken is marinated with a special laksa paste recipe, then deep fried on the truck before topping with a refreshing pineapple salsa, fresh with every order. Each bite promises an explosion of taste and textures.
The hearty, mouth-watering Beef Bulgogi Kimchi Wrap is Korean inspired and will definitely be a popular choice in Malaysia. It is a great choice to jazz up breakfast or lunch.
If beef is not your thing then there’s the aromatic Coconut Prawn Wrap with Spicy Tamarind Mayonnaise, promising all the flavours that Malaysians love but reordered in the most delightful way. Biting into this wrap will be an experience on its own.
To suit almost everyone’s palate, there’s the hunger-inducing Lamb Shank Rendang with Sweet Radish Achar. Rendang is given a gourmet twist with an unforegettable crunch and sweetness from the achar.
For those looking for something lighter and for the vegetarians, there’s the Roast Carrot Hummus with Avocado Wrap, which is creamy and sweet from the mashed caramelized carrots, deliciously buttery from the avocados and with a slight crunch from the fresh vegetables. We guarantee one is not enough!
Adam shot to fame by winning the Australian MasterChef Season 2, which still holds the record as the most watched programme in Australia. His unassuming ways, and his amazing talent with food made him the show’s favourite. Here he will be showcasing his much loved signature style, inspired by his time in Malaysia.
“I grew up with constant exposure to Malaysian food as I have family here, and this was an interesting project for me as I could give my own interpretation to classic Malaysian flavours. Malaysia is a very adventurous nation when it comes to food, and I hope with The Little Red Food Truck, they will try out different ways to enjoy their favourite dishes”, said Adam who was in Malaysia to launch The Little Red Food Truck and conduct Masterclasses for consumers.
Adam Liaw’s collaboration with Mission Foods will be bringing something new to the local food scene, as there has never been an international celebrity chef linked to a food truck in Malaysia.
“With the Little Red Food Truck, we wanted to show how versatile Mission products are and how it can be enjoyed with local flavours. Mission Foods is extremely delighted to partner with Adam Liaw, a chef of such caliber and popularity. Adam has an interesting way with food and we are thrilled to have him create inspiring recipes using our products,” said Maria Mitropoulos, Vice President of Marketing Mission Foods Asia and Oceania.
