Looks like a Malaysian Chef has lost his Filipino fans. Datuk Redzuawan Ismail, also known as Chef Wan, has declared that Filipino food is the worst in Asia.
Following publication of a CNN poll which asked: “Which destination has the world’s best food?” and the final results of which showed the Philippines on the number 2 spot, Chef Wan made his displeasure known. In an interview with Malaysian news website, Astro Awani, the chef said that the “Philippines is known to have the worst food in Asia. Ask any chefs and they will tell you I am right.”
Chef Wan was also quoted as saying, “My top five choices in terms of variety should be: number one Malaysia, followed by Italy, Thailand, Japan and India.”
He added, “I see food as varieties and flavours that reflect the culture and food, and that is why Malaysia should be the first world’s best food destination.”
The same CNN poll showed that Taiwan ranked number 1 while Malaysia ranked number 6.
