    Another reliable contender that has been conjuring up one of the best Ayam Goreng Kunyit that you could easily have every day. The chicken slivers are fried to perfection with a tad of crispiness outside and tender inside with a strong turmeric burst, along long beans and onions. A spoonful of soy sauce, fried egg, and dollop of their spicy sambal would enhance the whole devouring moment. The ratio of meat to rice is truly admirable.

    This convivial food court is habitually brimming with patrons, especially during lunch hours. The Nasi Ayam Goreng Kunyit stall has been playing a starring role in the surrounding vicinity as the best lunch fix, justifying the snaking queue that you see every weekday. Gilded-hue chicken morsels laced with onions and long beans are liberally loaded on a mound of white rice, and you can opt for a splash of soy sauce if plain white rice isn’t your thing. Seal the deal with a glass of lathered tea that awakens the pungent aftertaste.
