    With more than 30 branches across Malaysia, Ayam Penyet AP has always set the bar high for succulent chicken and lip-smacking sambal. The deep-fried chicken is well-marinated, showered with crispy fritters and paired with fried tempeh, beancurd, vegetables and sizzling sambal which steal the spotlight at the very first bite. Unlike Malaysian-style sambal which has a tinge of sweetness, the Indonesian version kicks in with tons of heat that set your palate on a party. Additionally, you can opt for beef and fish, which is worth devouring too.
