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.

Ayam Penyet Ria, Singapore
Located on Orchard Road, Lucky Plaza was a mall with a number of hidden good eateries, and Ayam Penyet Ria was one of them.

We were there on a weekend for a late lunch. The restaurant operates from 11am to 10pm daily.

Ayam Penyet with Rice, Ayam Penyet Ria
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!

Lele Penyet with Rice, Ayam Penyet Ria
Jefrey ordered the Lele Penyet with rice which was priced at $8.50. The portion of the fish was quite big, and I tried a bit of the catfish, which I thought was quite good.

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.

Mr Lonely, hello there! Thanks for dropping by! =D

Sycookies, they did serve raw vegetables with the chicken and fish, not a lot though. You can always request for more if you want. =)
