“Ayam Penyet” is really the ‘IN’ thing now. Several eateries, hawker centre stall, and even my school canteen is selling this popular dish.
Ayam penyet which hails from Indonesia, is a fried chicken dish flattened with a wooden pestle. It is a simple dish which is served with fragrant rice, some vegetables such as cabbage and potent sambal chilli sauce. Some serve the dish with fried tahu (beancurd) and tempe (soybean cake) on the side.
If you want to try out the original, Ayam Penyet Ria located at the 4th storey of Lucky Plaza is one of the first few places which brought this dish in. Do note that it is often very crowded during the weekends, so expect to wait in line with locals and Indonesians alike.
