MKR – Asian street food challenge

“Group 2 is bringing the heat to Spice Alley, rocking the woks at their very own Asian street food stalls. With a paying public to please, one team stumbles in their own backyard.”

Google tells me Spice Alley is Kensington St in Chippendale, Sydney, which is where Koi Dessert Bar run by MasterChef alumni Reynold is located.
I guess the team that stumbles is the Chinese restaurant sisters or possibly Sonya and Hadil, as they are from NSW.

Olga is a bikies moll tonight with her bandana

HeWhoHasNoName

channelling her inner Roula.

These “tortillas” sound absolutely daft – the Italian bros were right to point this out.

Littlepetal

And serving the public with bare hands. Picking up fried chicken and plating. Where is the hygiene?

big h

Yuk. Almost as bad as a double dipping.

Littlepetal

Its better to do it with hands. You need to press out the air when sealing.

big h

They didn’t seem to work very well though.

cuisinaire

Even $2 shops sell those.

Uh oh. Can’t see Dan and Gemma beating the other two in Da ‘Alimination’ House. And WTF with the people’s choice winner?

Littlepetal

Could be a set up by the producers. But I suppose if you are paying, you will pay more for salmon than the one tasty prawn fritter.

Littlepetal

I am sick of the crying from Emily. She will get her group to give them higher scores. But Dan and Gemma can’t cook.
They don’t have a good palate. I remember most dishes in the IR were delicious to them

Jayblossom

I’m also sick of Emily’s tears. It also reeks of poor sportsmanship, as long as they were winning people’s choice they were happy but now that they’ve messed up it ‘s all tears.
If anyone has the right to cry and feel hard done by it’s Dan and Gemma – sure they can’t cook but to be in elimination because tortillas pandered to the customer’s taste. I think they should have been penalised for ignoring the brief, but maybe it’s just because Davide and mate annoy me.

cuisinaire

It’s a bit rich when Italians #1 fail to “meet the brief” when they deep fry at a BBQ but Italians #2 succeed when they dish up storebought Mexican tortillas for an Asian food challenge. They could have cooked pancakes. And Asian sisters…wok bottom with their salty food.

Littlepetal

The dumplings were not silky and looks so dry.

I think Dan and Gemma were not allowed to cook Indian. They would have done well with curry

big h

I was wondering why they didn’t do Indian, which they have aced before. The subcontinent is more relatable to Asia that Mexico FFS. Maybe that’s why Gemma was upset: because they were beaten by tacos.

Windsong

New drinking game. Every time someone says the phrase, “authentic Asian flavours”, take a shot.

Whoops, now you’re dead.

“Asia is so big, I want you to take me somewhere specific” said Pete to Georgie & Alicia. They had told us that their Dad does the lot. Modern Australian does too. A ridiculous criticism. Fair enuf to say the chicken was too salty. Imagine how over the top the salt was IF Pete & Manu were being honest. But I think others thought so too. And Manu would perhaps have wondered where the sorss woz but e woz mebbe not for ze good cut – more spice elsewhere or heat generated by its absence.

big h

We should have been told now much was raised, like they do in MC (unless I missed it).

Windsong

Maybe it’s the medication I’m taking, but even the footage of the girls’ chicken pieces being dumped into all that brine made me nauseous. That would’ve just been ghastly to eat.

HeWhoHasNoName

Hat boy and his Greek goddess needed to survive… MKR disappointed that the itals pulled of peoples choice as they’d gladly sacrifice them as they have the back-up ital team. So next team they’re willing to sacrifice is Dan and Gem (whom finally have figured out that they havn’t signed up for a cooking a competition and as such are this weeks chosen Bambi).

Guess Hatboy and girl survive… all the crying over raw meat but they’ll pull out a fantastic entree and dessert whilst D & G will pull out 3 mediocre dishes…

Littlepetal

Still think they want to balance out the number of teams in each group

Smythe

Italians win people’s choice for making a non-Asian dish. Brief = cook Asian food. Boys did not meet brief and judges should have been able to overrule people’s choice and next team who got paid the most should have been given that award. What is it with the two Italian teams not following the briefs? However, I did find a lot of recipes for “Chinese” tacos online…surprised me.
Olga and Valeria looked like they jumped off of a WWII poster.
Assuming that Hatster and teary eyed partner will win the elimination challenge.

Dumplings from Hong Kong Diner at Spice Alley – $8.00.
When it comes to the public opinion wouldn’t a token system be better? Incidentally, payment at Spice Alley is only by card, no cash
