I LOVE AYAM PENYET!
Okay lah, that’s not precisely correct. I really like THIS Ayam Penyet from Pondok Pantai Timur! That’s extra prefer it 😀
This well-known dish of East Javanese heritage is excessive on the listing of faves for a lot of I’m positive. Chances are you’ll come throughout just a few completely different variations right here and there however the premise is straightforward – rice is served with some meat, greens and a few sambal. The meat element is ‘smashed’ (therefore the identify, penyet = smashed/flattened) with a heavy mallet and the top result’s typically spectacular.
I’ve had some actually good Nasi Ayam Penyet over time. This contains Empal Penyet (Beef) and Ikan Penyet (Fish). I’ve not even began on issues like Bakso Penyet and Sotong Penyet LOL
However when you requested me the place to seek out my favorite Nasi Ayam Penyet, I’ll let you know to go to Ubi.
Pondok Pantai Timur is situated inside an consuming home (referred to as Yummy Meals Home btw). You will note a protracted queue there particularly throughout lunchtime and for good cause.
They’ve bought different dishes on the menu too together with Nasi Lemak, Soto, Mee Soto and Mee Rebus too (which I’ve heard are actually good by the best way) however like me, most individuals are there for the Nasi Ayam Penyet!
Here’s a humorous truth for you – I’ve eaten there SO MANY TIMES however it’s ALWAYS bungkus (takeaway)! This evaluation is first time I’m consuming there on location LOL primarily as a result of I wanted to take photographs ah 😝. All different occasions, we makan within the workplace and I don’t really feel so self-conscious about licking my fingers clear after consuming. That’s how good it’s!
I don’t know the way they do it however their fried hen is… SEDAP GILER!
It has this excellently crisp exterior that’s as tasty because it seems to be. And the hen meat itself is tremendous tender to the max. The makcik wields her mighty mini-Mjolnir because the ayam goes by a (actually) smashing good time. The tip end result – it sits fairly on this palette of perfection ?
Some will desire their Ayam Penyet to have this thick(er) and crispier with some kremes (crispy crumbs) on the facet. Properly, whereas this one might not be as crispy (as a result of, no batter) and never a lot kremes, it nonetheless comes up tops in my books as a result of simply the scrumptious flavour is energy.
Whereas the normal serving of Nasi Ayam Penyet can have plain white rice, the model at Pondok Pantai Timur options rice that’s much like what you get with a serving of hen rice. This isn’t unusual (fairly just a few different locations serve this as effectively) and it’s this further flavour that makes it even sedap for me.
And final however positively not least, the factor that many regard as an important element – THE SAMBAL!
I’m glad to report that the sambal right here is ??? It’s spicy and also you’re gonna get robust hints of belachan right here and there. Some Nasi Ayam Penyet can have a sambal that’s heavy on the tomatoes (which is definitely the normal means) however right here, a fiery flavour prevails!
Now y’all know why I discussed licking my fingers clear on the finish of my meal? 😛
And I all the time ask for EXTRA SAMBAL! FUYOH!! In truth, I purchase there so typically that when the makcik acknowledges me, she auto contains further sambal 😝 so candy of her!
And in case you had been questioning – makan there, takeaway or order for supply – all additionally nonetheless energy 💪🏼.
In case you can’t make it all the way down to their stall, you possibly can place bulk orders and supply by way of their web site!
Truly, I may go on and on about how a lot I really like the Nasi Ayam Penyet at Pondok Pantai Timur. However that is a type of dishes that it’s important to strive for yourselves to know when you prefer it or not. It is a family-run enterprise and I feel that performs a giant half is being persistently energy all these years.
However I’ve stated it earlier than and I’ll say it once more – that is my FAVOURITEST Nasi Ayam Penyet! ❤
