Best Ayam Percik in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Certain dishes are real celebrities; it’s an anchor point that grabs all the attention, gets you drooling while your tummy screams that's what I need all day long! A celebrated Kelantanese dish, Ayam Percik is capable of spellbinding all senses simultaneously with its preparation as well as presentation. Thick slabs of chickens are marinated in spicy coconut concoction and perfectly grilled or roasted over low heat, which results in a scarlet-red colour and lip-smacking blend of sweet, savoury and spicy. It’s usually served on a banana leaf and mound of rice, be it kerabu or plain white rice. We have chomped down all these finest spots in Penang that splashed us with satisfaction, what are you waiting for?

    We have got to admit, authentic Malaysian cuisines in a sophisticated backdrop are scarce, yet we have scouted a spot to relish. Sandwiched between Savaro and Lunarich is this comfy restaurant that has been changing the frame of mind by whipping out local delights such as Nasi Lemak with Rendang Chicken, Durian Pancake and Rojak. With splashes of catchy colours here and there, it exudes gaily vibes upon entering.  Their Nasi Ulam with Ayam Percik is rave-worthy, grilled chicken is shrouded with a rich and creamy rosy-red sauce, complementing the tender meat below. Batons of deep-fried keropok lekors and fluffy nasi ulam share space on the banana leaf to complete a platter of Kelantan's delicacy at the heart of Georgetown.

    This humble and laid-back ambiance allows you to rub shoulders with friendly locals and dig in Western and local delicacies that are cheap and toothsome. Despite the far-flung choices of dishes to pick, their Ayam Percik is the most captivating with its glistening surface with speckles of charred marks that are absolutely sublime. The blend of flavours is spot on, suavity of the coconut milk and the spice hit from the lemongrass, garlic and chilies just stamps onto your memory. It’s usually served with a mound of white rice and wallop of earthy greens.

    This could be a heartbreak to many as it’s only available during the fasting month before Hari Raya, yet patience is a virtue, especially if it’s sinfully gratifying. Ayam Percik is also known as Ayam Golek, which means rotating those marinated birds in an open fire, which can be spotted here. It’s a long stretched stall, parallel to the never-ending crowd; where the chicken are meticulously imbued with spices for an additional depth of flavours, complementing the tender and juicy meat.

    Visiting this old-school joint rather reminds you of Kelantan itself, you are soaked into an oasis of calmness with sights of country charm everywhere and amiable aunty dishing out Ayam Percik with heirloom recipes that include honey as a key marinating ingredient. You would be starving looking at rows of chicken wheeling under the fire, where the slow gradation of colour and caramelisation is droll-worthy. It offers plenty of taste and texture at each bite and the honey isn’t overpowering. Many get their whole chicken, which is the best bet for birthdays and gatherings while keeping your kitchen clean.
