Fast food outlets are a dime a dozen in Malaysia. But one that serves traditional Indonesian food in a modern setting is quite unheard of.
Ayam Penyet (RM7.90)
Their signature dish is their Ayam Penyet, or Indonesian style Flattened Fried Chicken. Supposedly flattened to tenderize the meat. Unlike the usual ayam goreng from Nasi Kandar stalls, or Malay style fried chicken, the one served here is marinated with some special sauce, before deep-frying, and served with crunchy batter. Expected the meat to be dry, but luckily it wasn’t. The sambal is fiery, but you can request for milder version if desired.
The gado-gado however, was a disappointment. I expected the peanut gravy to be chunkier, and nuttier. Too diluted for my liking.
Indonesian Milk Tea and Soda Gembira (Happy Soda .. Wa-Hey!!! =P)
Tempted to try their avocado juice, but the streaky chocolate sauce put me off. Probably next time. Haha …. The milk tea was good, at only RM2.50, while the Soda Gembira is a mixture of F&N Strawberry Soda, and evaporated milk. (RM3.50). Surprisingly, their drinks menu is quite extended, and a cute warning stating : “Caution! some of these beverages are addictive! Enjoy at your own risk. ” Oopps …. Guess I gotta go satiate my cravings soon ….
Their menu covers various other penyet-able items, such as beef, pomfret, prawns, chicken wings etc. They also serve grilled items, as well as stews and soups. Worth a try, before the novelty wears off?
