The Food Surprise!

Eating out, like the way we all do, food guru KF Seetoh goes into an eatery without permission, chows down, pays for the food, then leaves and reflect.

But this time, he's armed with a camera crew, an empty stomach and refreshingly blunt honesty. And contrary to popular belief, he is not always welcomed with open arms.

His journey in this 13-part series, named The Food Surprise! with Makansutra, takes him to hawker stalls, restaurants and street food carts in Malaysia -- from Penang, through Ipoh, her capital Kuala Lumpur, a tiny seaside town Sekinchan, Johor Baru and Singapore.

Catch the moments when he gets thrown out, wakes up a restaurant manager from her late noon siesta, and gets in line, like everyone else, for a 20 minute wait for his food.
