Recently everyone is craving for Ayam Penyet in Kota Kinabalu, I only started to know about this Indonesian chicken rice since last year and still more to discover. Some of the restaurants already existed for quite some years but never detected in my food-searching radar. Maybe I am staying in my comfort zone and didn't explore much, which is a big NO-NO as a foodie blogger! I promise I will cover more variety of food and introduce to you guys -- my valued readers!
My first encounter of Ayam Penyet if not already consumed without my knowledge earlier, was Warung Bandung at Lintas Jaya. After I tried I immediately fall in love in this Indonesian chicken rice and started my foodiot's journey to look for the best Ayam Penyet in town. I tried one at Cyber Square and another one at Kepayan area-- not really satisfy with what I've got. Then until my friend Abby recommended me this restaurant at Alamesra, just opposite of 1Borneo Hypermall.
|Warung Padang Jawa & Catering at Alamesra, near Seremban Crab Seafood Restaurant|
|It's all full when we reached here at 12pm, on Sunday|
|The Ayam Penyet -- fried chicken, punched (penyet) to almost flattened on the wooden plate|
|Every piece of chicken is dipped in flour batter then deep fried until golden, very juicy indeed.|
Which fried chicken do you preferred, KFC, McD or MB? Of course is KFC! The fried chicken at Warung Padang Jawa is almost comparable to KFC! Almost!
|Tempeh (Soybean Patty) ready to be served in the kitchen|
|The assistant chef showed us how to "tempeh" (punch) the chicken, very funny group of people =)|
FOODIOT'S POINT: 80% (Very delicious chicken; beware of the chillies, very spicy; cleanliness of the restaurant should be improved)
7AM - 4PM (Until sold out)
Opposite row of Seremban Crab Seafood Restaurant, Alamesra, KK
