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!

    Restoran Pinang

    A popular dinner spot among UTM (Universiti Teknologi Malaysia) students, Restoran Pinang serves one of the best ayam penyet in Skudai. Here, “ayam tua” (old chicken) is used because of its exceptionally leaner and juicier meat. The chicken is perfectly fried until crisp and golden brown. Not to forget, the sambal belacan dip is spicy enough to complement with the delectable ayam penyet and white rice!


    Avoid focusing on their char kuey teow, and come for their penyet dish instead.
