Let’s be real. Even if price of chicken is increasing, deep down inside we still can resist the urge to eat chicken.
Curry chicken, fried chicken, steam chicken, chicken soup, chicken rice, etc.
There’s so much Malaysian faves that cannot stray away from using chicken as their star ingredient.
Of course, ayam penyet, as its name suggest, is another chicken dish that we love.
So without further ado, let us bring to you the 4 best ayam penyet places in the Petaling district!
This place needs no introduction. It reigns as Malaysia’s favorite ayam penyet place with many different outlets located across the state of Selangor.
Their ayam penyet is made with an Indonesian recipe, bringing out a different flavor from Malaysian-style ayam penyet.
The skin of the ayam penyet is fried to the perfect crispiness while the insides still retain its moisture.
Some reviews online inform that you will be charged for extra sambal so just remember to eat your sambal sparingly if you don’t want to fork out the extra monies.
Where some food news outlet state that their sambal is eye-wateringly spicy, some claim that the spice level is still tolerable.
They are also good for their tauhu tempe and balado petai.
However, be noted that the price of their ayam penyet is above the average ayam penyet in the market.
