Best Ayam Penyet in PJ

Written by Updated ago

It is easy to understand why ayam penyet has won many hearts of Malaysians. The spicy sambal teamed with tender, spiced chicken alongside a serving of white rice; has all the components that make up a true Asian meal. All of us at FoodAdvisor.my remembered how an ayam penyet “wave” came crashing down in Malaysia years ago and everywhere you looked back then, ayam penyet restaurants were sprouting up like mushrooms. However, like all other crazes, things slowed down a little and only the truly delicious ones managed to stand strong up till today. Below, we have listed some of the best ayam penyet in Petaling Jaya.

    The inhouse specialty, Ayam Penyet Lova, has a certain special flavour to it, maybe it’s the spices or the slightly different batter but it is a recipe that works wonders. The meat is very tender and tears from the bones so easily (a sign of a good fried chicken?). Aside from that, I’d also recommend their Beef Rawon or Beef Soup as it is quite a delectable dish from what we have heard.
    Tips

    The place is very flexible in mixing and matching their sets so if you want to customise your meal, go ahead & switch things up a little.

    Things to expect

    Expect more variety than the usual Indonesian restaurant in their menu & slight traffic jam in the roads leading to the restaurant (it IS Sunway, who are we kidding?)

    Best with

    Try their ultra refreshing avocado juice or Teh Botol which is specially imported from Indonesia

    Price

    RM8.00

    This outlet has been a crowd favourite in The Curve, even garnering the award for Sales Achievement Award in 2014. That’s how popular this place is & if yoAyamPenyet Lekou have not tried the ayam penyet here, you should. Now. They only use ayam kampung (minus the toughness) & though the chicken may not be in large pieces but they’re chunks of flavourful meat which makes up for its lack in size. The skin is fried to a golden exterior & so crunchy. The ayam penyet here ticks all the right boxes: spicy, filling & worth the money. So, a plate of smashing chicken, anyone?
    Tips

    Good news: you can actually pick your spiciness level of choice so do ask the servers. And oh, credit cards are not accepted here, so make sure you have cash on hand.

    Things to expect

    Expect an outlet filled with loyal customers. Warung Leko has collected numerous loyal customers so expect familiar faces if you’re thinking of coming here more than once.

    Es Degan, which is coconut juice spiked with rose syrup.

    This chain restaurant has always been full, and we were lucky to be able to get a seat on the weekend. Gotta agree that the chicken were fried so succulently that using cutleries to eat with was not a problem at all. However, just like every ayam penyet dish, be careful of the spiciness level of the dish served here. It may be too hot to handle for some of us.Perhaps you can ask for a tone down in terms of its spiciness level.
    Tips

    As usual, ask for the chicken thigh part or else, you will be served really small portions.

    Things to expect

    Well, it is a mall outlet so expect crowds or worse, long queues on weekends. I’ve been there & trust me, you do not want to go there.

    Best with

    Their sirap bandung cincau. My personal favourite drink here. An alternative will be their ABC Laici, yummyyy!

    The Ayam Penyet is a must for food lovers who want to satisfy their craving. The signature Ayam Penyet dish were specially marinated with various spice and herbs. Which give a certain special flavour. Costing a mere RM10, the Ayam Penyet comes with a platter of spicy sambal, deep fried tofu, deep fried tempe and a seperate plate of rice. Fried chicken is extremely tasty with crispy batter, sure you will be addicted. Aside from that, I'd also recommend other version of Empal Penyet and Lele Penyet.

    Tips

    The restaurant is at the shophouses facing the main road of Sunway opposite Sunway Pyramid.

    Things to expect

    Peak hours might result a huge crowd.

    Best with

    Try out their Gado-gado.

    Waroeng IgaPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Waroeng Iga is probably the 5-star place to get your fill of ayam penyet, mainly due to 3 factors: the price, interior design and location.This place is slightly more costly but I guess with price comes good quality aye? And this place surely serves really good ayam penyet. The sambal is not too spicy, unlike other places. Secondly, the interior deco is so gorgeous you feel like you stumbled into a furniture store. However, be prepared for really small proportions as the restaurant seems to practice the concept of “more is less”. Overall,this should be an enjoyable plate of ayam penyet if portion is not a big factor for you.
    Tips

    Do look for promotions & discounts on Groupon for Waroeng Iga, if you’re lucky, you might get 50% off on your next visit!

    Things to expect

    As I mentioned before, expect small proportions but first class tastebuds.

    Warung PojokPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Probably cost wise this is the cheapest ayam penyet on this list but with equally satisfying quality, Warung Pojok may not be a five-star restaurant at first glance but they sure cook like one. Warung Pojok is a small and humble outlet tucked in one of the random corners in Bandar Sunway. Taylor’s College students are frequent customers here due to the place’s affordable price, (as low as RM 4.50 for the ayam penyet & RM6.50 for a complete set of chicken, rice & drink!) If you’re looking a plate of wholesome Nusantara flavour, do give this stall a visit.
    Tips

    The route to this outlet is pretty complicated but get to Mentari Court & look for a motorcycle service store. It’s tucked into the far end of the shoplots.

    Things to expect

    A very humble, low-key, food court-ish atmosphere. This means that there are no air-conditioned indoors or fancy chairs.

    Best with

    Order Extra Joss, a specialty drink to go along with the dish.
