A while back, I brought the folks to Seah Im Food Centre to try out the Lor Mee from Shi Ji Noodle Stall.

After our meal, Mum spotted the next table having the Ayam Penyet from Farasha Muslim Stall. Tempted by what we saw, we ordered one set to share among the three of us.

The name Ayam Penyet translates as "smashed chicken" which means the chicken is flattened by smashing after being fried to a crisp. I have actually seen the stall at NUH's food court using a mallet.

A dish of Indonesia origins, I have eaten Ayam Penyet quite a number of times, but it is the first for them. 

The Ayam Penyet ($5) here comes with a chicken leg, cucumber, raw cabbage, a cube of tau kwa, a piece of thumb-length tempeh and sambal. The rice and soup are served separately on another plate.

The chicken is served piping hot and crispy which is really shiok with the sambal. However, I find the marinade did not reach the thicker parts of the chicken. The sambal is quite spicy but still bearable especially when mixed in with the fluffy rice and fried crumbs.

The folks were talking about having this Ayam Penyet again the next time that we come to this food centre. I take it that they like it. 

On the menu, other than the Ayam Penyet, is just a few items such as Nasi Lemak, Maggi Goreng and Nasi Goreng but in different flavors such as tom yum, black pepper, etc.

There is another stall here called Inspirasi which is also famous for their Ayam Penyet but it seems Farasha Muslim Food had a much longer queue. Nevertheless, I will give Inspirasi a try next time round so I could do a comparison between the two.
