Mediacorp cooking show LNX x Hawkers is one of those programmes that is best watched on a full stomach, but even then, we can’t guarantee that you’ll be able to avoid developing some major cravings for the fusion culinary delights Li Nanxing whips up with the help of local hawkers.
In the latest episode, the 56-year-old actor worked with a pizza stall owner to combine “Chinese-style sesame chicken with Western Pizza”. He then called up his friend — and fellow avid cook — Christopher Lee to swing by to try the rather odd-sounding concoction.
“I invited Christopher to this tasting ‘cos he's an honest person,” Nanxing later explained. “If something is good, he’ll say it’s good, but if not, he’ll say, ‘Eh, this is no good.’”
