When it comes to Malaysian cuisine, one dish that stands out is the classic fried chicken known as Ayam Goreng. While there are countless variations of this dish across the country, the OAG Original Ayam Goreng has garnered a following for its unique blend of flavors and crispy texture.

The restaurant has a very American-styled retro design with a casual, laid-back atmosphere, simple wooden tables and chairs, and a few traditional Malaysian decorations on the walls.

Over time, the dish made its way to Malaysia and evolved to incorporate local spices

and techniques. This evolution produced OAG Original Ayam Goreng, whose recipe has been improved over time to produce a delectable fusion of tastes and textures. The chicken is marinated in a blend of spices and herbs for several hours before being deep-fried to crispy perfection. The result is a juicy, flavorful chicken that is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

The spices used in the marinade are a closely guarded secret, but they are said to include turmeric, coriander, cumin, and other aromatic spices. The chicken is then coated in a batter made from a special blend of flours and seasonings, which gives it its signature crunch.

One of the key factors that sets OAG Original Ayam Goreng apart from other fried chicken dishes is the use of fresh, high-quality ingredients. The chicken used is locally sourced and free-range, ensuring that it is not only delicious but also ethically sourced. 

The batter is made using a special blend of flours that are chosen for their quality and flavor, while the oil used for frying is of the highest standard to ensure that the chicken is not greasy or heavy.

When you would order, you will be given the option to choose from different parts of the

chicken, including the thigh, drumstick, or wings. The classic option, that most people choose consists of a piece of fried chicken with a side of sambal, rice, and a refreshing iced lemon tea.
