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).

    The ayam penyet here is not the main attraction but the sambal is. Spicy yet addictive, it will make you order more even if your nose was getting runny. THAT is how addictive it is. However, I would prefer it more if the tempeh (soycake) was less dry. The location of this restaurant is pretty hard to miss as it sits above the infamous sole Burger King franchise in Wangsa Maju. Plus, just like Ayam Penyet Ria, it is a walking distance from Wangsa Walk.
    Tips

    When ordering, make sure to specify the thigh part as the servers will just serve the ribs part initially here.

    Things to expect

    There is no outdoor seating here so smokers, you have been warned. Plus, the interior is very clean so do not worry about flies & whatnot distracting you from your food.

    Best with

    Teh O Ais. Do not order anything milky or your tummy will surrender before you even finish your food.

    Price

    RM7.50

    Catchy name for a restaurant aye? Imagine going to this place & saying “Hey, I had Ayam Penyet Nyet Nyet!”. This place is easy on the wallet, that’s for sure. The ayam penyet is super delishhh but just like every dish, it is very very spicy (you have been warned). Good news for spice lovers like me though. Another plus point is their portion size: they serve HUGE crispy-skinned, soft chicken thighs. Now that’s already a good enough reason to go to this place, don’t you think so?
    Tips

    Go at night to avoid the really really hot weather and dust from the road nearby.

    Things to expect

    Low prices. Compared to the other places listed, Ayam Penyet Nyet Nyet offers really low prices. Plus easy parking since they have their own space.

    Best with

    Their iced lime juice which is super refreshing.
