Best Grilled Chickens in Penang

Written by Updated ago

For many of us, grilled chicken is our favourite pick yet it’s not as ubiquitous as the fried version and handling a scorching grill isn’t everyone’s jam. What not to love about chicken marinated and grilled to perfection? Teeming with a smoky aroma and charred speckles certainly notch up the level of satisfaction. And yes, grilling the meat is only half the part, to end with a flavour bang, multitude of sauces and condiments share space for optimal gratification. Basted with a Malaysian-style sauce, filled with hefty greens, laid on fluffy naans, baked with fruits or  absolutely sticking to classic - grilled chicken come in various forms in the Pearl of Orient but one thing is for sure, these birds leave an indelible mark on your palate.

    Coffee Elements

    Judging by the name, if you’re heading to this eatery expecting a sheer spread of freshly brewed coffee and complementing cakes, you’ll be never disappointed. If you’re one who worries about your waistline yet not giving up on flavours, their  Caesar salad is the best match for you. Grilled chicken chunks are scattered on coral greens, butterheads, rockets, chicken ham, cherry tomatoes, half-boiled omega eggs, a dusting of parmesan cheese and concluded with drizzles of natural yoghurt. Done taking in the beauty, grab a fork and dig in the beautiful mess.

    Awesome Canteen Sekeping Victoria

    Definitely not an ordinary canteen - this out-of-the-box one would make you forget each and every canteen you’ve been before. With an artistic patchwork of industrial decorations and rustic backdrop, it’s pretty tough to tear yourself apart from Instagram, till the mouth-watering menu greets you. Grilled chicken is certainly a mainstay on the menu, either it’s topped on a nest of ramen lounging in a subtle soup, tossed into a nourishing salad, served with a Spaghetti in Black Olive Pesto or aromatic Paleo Rosemary Chicken – one thing is for sure, your taste buds would be utterly satisfied. The bird is shown lots of love on the grill, delivering it to the table juicy, tender and gently charred. And be sure of saving some space for desserts.
