Ayam Penyet Ria
Posted by: Wen Ching In: Indonesian Food
Being a fan of Indonesian food, I was happy to discover this restaurant through a Singaporean colleague of mine, Preet.
I ordered a plate of Ayam Penyet with rice for $7. Ayam Penyet literally means smashed chicken. The reason to hammer the chicken and smashing it lightly was to ensure that the meat will become looser and fluffier. I was happy to find that chicken was served with Tempeh (soybeans in cake form), Taufu Goreng (fried tofu), Kangkung (water spinach) and Belacan (spicy shrimp paste). The chicken was nicely fried and delicious, but the best thing which I liked about their Ayam Penyet was the spiciness of the sambal, which gave the dish an extra kick!
Overall it was a pleasant dining experience, the food was good and reasonably priced as well. I will definitely return for more when I’m craving for ayam penyet in the future. For more information, feel free to check out their website.
