Ayam Penyet

Posted in singapore,Singapore food by chrisau on February 12, 2009

I’m not a fan of malay food but this Ayam Penyet stuff seems to be getting popular in Singapore. It seems like every malay foodstalls are dishing out this delicious meal and I just happened to notice a A4 poster at a nearby malay stall saying they ‘got sell’ too. 🙂

Well, it’s actually fried chicken rice where the chicken is served on a traditional thick round wood (I can’t find the word to describe it) with lots of mouth watering belacan (shrimp paste) by the side. Tomatos, fried toufu and cabbages comes together with it too.

Just squeeze the lime juice onto the chicken and spread belacan onto the chicken meat and you’re in for a great meal!



This usually cost around S$4 and one of the better ones that I tried was at the foodcourt opposite Parkway Parade and Ubi Ave 2.

    I’m not a fan of Malay food either, but you sure this was created by the Malays, because I think Malays do not have their own dishes, but copied from other cultures and modified. 😉
