Are Willin Low's Curry Puffs And Soy Sauce Chocolate Ice Cream Shiok Or Not?
Mod Sin cuisine pioneer Willin Low rolls out pre-made curry puffs and nasi lemak sold at petrol stations, plus soy sauce chocolate ice cream with tempeh. We sample them and tell you if they're worth the calories.
Chef Willin Low has been busy. While the man is famous for his mod Sin bites at his restaurants Wild Rocket, Relish and Wild Oats, he has branched out with his own &Will brand of ready-to-eat food such as chicken pies, curry puffs and nasi lemak that are sold at selected Esso petrol stations. He partners Singapore-based investment company Commonwealth Capital (the same co-owners of Pastamania, Baker & Cook, The Soup Spoon and Udders) for this venture. Chef Willin is also working with the company under its Souperfood arm — a partnership between Commonwealth Capital and The Soup Spoon — to produce the well-loved Roxy Laksa’s paste. Oh, and Willin also found time to team up with Creamier Handcrafted Ice Cream & Coffee to create ice cream in his limited-edition signature flavour: the Chocolate Tau Yew Tempeh Crunch. Is he planning to build a food empire a la Jamie Oliver? Responds Willin with a laugh: "What empire? I just have a lot of fun celebrating local food on different platforms."
