Trying new food properly 2

Don’t judge a new food until you have tried it properly. I have commented on others judging a new food from just one encounter but I didn’t realise that I am guilty of it too. I tried Nasi Lemak for the first time in Sandakan, which is in the northern part of Borneo in Malaysia. I didn’t like it and I made my mind up. Dish eaten and dismissed. But I have to add, I tried it at an airport. Airport food has never been a good measure of a dish. So today, in Auckland, at a reputable local Malaysian restaurant, I tried it again. I liked it. Moral of the story, don’t judge a new food until you have tried it properly. At least once. Made by professionals.
