Best Ayam Penyet in Johor Bahru (JB)

Written by Updated ago

By now, most people must have heard or even tasted the popular Javanese dish. For the uninitiated, ayam penyet literally means flattened (smashed) chicken - nothing to do with a live chicken getting ran over by a lorry. The chicken is marinated then deep-fried (or roasted) before smashed with a pestle or wooden mallet. You can easily savour ayam penyet throughout Malaysia and if you’re in Johor, here is where you can track this delicious poultry dish down!

    Ayam Penyet Z&Z

    Although the rice and the side dishes such as fried tofu and soup are nothing to shout about, the chicken is awesome. The skin is crispy and not too oily. The white meat on the inside is thankfully moist and soft. The sambal belacan is quite watery, but still decent enough as a spicy dip for the chicken. Other penyet dishes served on the menu includes puyuh and ikan keli.


    This restaurant allows phone reservation.

    Things to expect

    Small amount of rice in the ayam penyet dish. Best to order extra rice if you’re a big eater.

    Best with

    Fruit juice.
