Best Roasted Chicken in Johor Bahru (JB)

Written by Updated ago

Simple, classic and delicious, roasted chicken is well-regarded as the finest way to savour the bird satisfyingly. Despite the unpretentious outlook, it’s never an easy task, be it over an open flame or rotary spits. The chicken is cooked evenly on all sides with its own fat and juice, and typically tarted up with salt and pepper as well as herbs. The result is a revelation, candy-like skin that enrobes tender and juicy meat beneath. Salivating already? Time to grease up your lips with gorgeous birds in Johor Bahru.

    Project A Cafe

    Another fabled cafe that takes roasted chicken seriously and it surely doesn’t disappoint. The hearty platter is graced with huge hunks of roasted bird, accompanied with a mound of steamed rice, black pepper sauce, and a dollop of greens. The meat is good on its own, yet blanketing it with the murky sauce makes wonder in your mouth. Gobble down the bird in an industrial and cozy ambiance, that is dressed to kill with exposed brick walls, wooden furniture and nostalgic decorations that invite you to linger a little longer with a brimming glass of fruity yogurt juice.

You can expect a great deal of flavour and smokiness from their roasted chicken, as well as a tender and juicy slab of meat.

    Chicken, chicken, chicken. Robin's Portugese Chicken is all about the chicks. Having more combination than economy rice (well not literally), this place is great for those who enjoys delicious roasted chicken. The roasted chicken is cooked thoroughly, with the flesh being moist and tender. There's a hint of smokiness but is greatly masked by the gravy. Having said that, it still is a pretty good serving of roasted chicken.

    It's not just the ducks that are roasting here as the chicken is absolutely tantalising as well. The chicken is roasted to perfection, though sometimes it could get a little dry. However, most of the times they'll get it right. And if they don't, simply send it back and they'll replace a new one for you. Flavour is rather eminent as the chicken is coated in gravy. All and all, a pretty good roasted chicken.
