Best Ayam Penyet in KL

Written by Updated ago

Javanese culture has always been an influence in Malaysian culture due to the migration of the Javanese people to this country hundreds of years ago. Ever since then, Malay food has always had a certain type of Indonesian flair to it. But recently, a certain Javanese dish has been winning the hearts of Malaysians and it goes by the name of…. drumroll please… Ayam Penyet. Here are the to-go places in KL for this smashing dish (no pun intended).

    Being a local favourite, this place does live up to its expectations. Even though pecel lele is the forte here, the succulent perfection that is its ayam penyet is a vision on its own as you can see from the photo. The waiters serve the dish as soon as it’s cooked, ensuring that it still remains fresh & hot when the customers have them. Plus, the dish is served on wooden plates, adding a rustic feel to the meal which makes you feel like you’re eating it in a village.

    Avoid lunchtime on both weekends & weekdays. You will thank FoodAdvisor for this advice.

    Things to expect

    The atmosphere is very low-key and non-pretentious. Oh, and it is an outdoor roadside place so it can get pretty hot in the daytime plus lots of people crowd the place during lunchtime so plan your time carefully!

    Best with

    Accompany this dish with pecel ikan lele or pecel puyuh (quail) or the ever refreshing iced lime juice.
