Thread: Something about roti-prata

    U guys think its only at hawkers? I used to work for a 5 star hotel & I tell you, I've seen some disgusting things too. This banquet waiter dropped the entire plate (fish & all) at the back lane. It was a weddding dinner & they didn't have any extra fish. So the banquet captain just brought out several small plates, scooped the fish off the floor, plated it & brought it out.

    Disgusting things occur all around us, even at "branded" establishments. Put it this way lah, if you're that worried, eat at home.

    Hey guys, whatever you eat please don't visit the kitchen of the restaurant.

    I don't know who says this: "If it's not dirty it doesn't taste nice."

    i saw from our local tv programme one day, it was about a place that sells very delicious ducks. The owner used the same gravy in the pot over and over again to boil and roast the ducks everyday. Everday, he will add more stock and ingredients into the existing contents. The ducks get more and more delicious each passing day. He only threw away the contents every new year and cleaned the pot once a year.

    when I was young I used to eat ice kachang with red beans. one day as I was scooping out my red beans, I notice one which is extra "squarish", on closer inspection it turned out to be a cockcroach egg, which is exactly the same shape and colour of red beans leh!

    Now I always order Ice Kachang, mai ang dow.

    Er... I think this is not new and in case you are not aware, by not changing the gravy or soup, it is in fact the KEY to why their food taste better. At least they change every year, some don't for a few years.

    So you see those food recommendations by those Channel U or Channel 8...etc, don't go to the kitchen and find out the hygenie standards. (when the camera crew is coming of course they clean up lah, but any other day..... )

    Not only "lor" ducks, or braised ducks. There are many dishes requiring sauces or gravy, in which the shop will use a large pot to cook it and at the end of the day, they just add more ingredients into the pot to make the next day's gravy.


    Last time, in those kopi-tiam, there is a saying, "Don't throw away the coffee socks, the older the better" the older or used socks absorb the flavour of the coffee and hence it better then using brand new 'white colored' coffee socks.


    There is also another kopitiam who use charcoal to toast the bread. At the end of the day, they do not put out the fire or glowing charcoal, but they spread a layer of ash on the glowing charcoal and the next day when they remove the layer of ash the charcoal is still glowing red underneath, and they just add new charcoal on top of it.

    Makes me wonder abt the fire hazard posed by such a practise.

    notice how some pets : eg dogs, cats, chinchillas sometimes eat their own **** everynow and then? its probably their way of boosting their immune system (I don't know how factually corrrect is this, but i remembered reading it some where)

    i hope the example don't apply to us though...but thats how a lot of outbreaks and epidemics happen when we don't start digesting our waste from young to build up our immune system...
    Agree with you Stefen, that germs are good...yummy yummy...hahaha!
    I'm also training myself up cos I have a weak stomach...not good for travelling which I so love!

    Don't think so about the pets-eating-their-own-poo-to-boost-their-immunity part. It's a condition that needs to be treated. See http://www.puppy.com.au/faq/faq.asp?q=31&g=4

This is the important part, I begin to scrutinised him whether he had his hands wet or etc, and indeed, his hands were a bit wet, and he just rub it off with a piece of cloth available and start tossing away with his prata. Then I seriously begin to puke, because, I somehow begin to wandered in my mind, about his hands being used to do his prata and also his just accomplised "toilet" mission, plus, even worst, there was stains marking of yellowish on his sarong, which coincidentally resembled the curry too that I'm taking, oh really gosh, I just can't help myself from further suspicion, was that those argh err..."stuff" leftover from his toilet business or was it pure curry, I throw up as soon as I left the table and went to in a fluff. This encounter, I told myself, I will never try roti prata again...cos if you can distinguish the true "stains" of his curry or his stomache discharge???? plus not forgetting his "hands" and most common coffeeshop I believe doesn't provide ready liquid soap or etc and that particluar coffeeshop that I visited, simply lacks of such requisites.

    Gee...do you ever have such a experience? and will this story ruin your appetite for Roti-Prata?


    I hope he dont recycle the curry which you puked out.
