Pondok Pantai Timur – My #1 Favorite 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. You might come throughout just a few totally different variations right here and there however the premise is easy – rice is served with some meat, greens and a few sambal. The meat element is ‘smashed’ (therefore the title, penyet = smashed/flattened) with a heavy mallet and the tip result’s typically spectacular.

I’ve had some actually good Nasi Ayam Penyet through the years. This consists of Empal Penyet (Beef) and Ikan Penyet (Fish). I’ve not even began on issues like Bakso Penyet and Sotong Penyet LOL

However for those who requested me the place to seek out my favorite Nasi Ayam Penyet, I’ll inform you to go to Ubi.

Nasi Ayam Penyet ($5.50)

Pondok Pantai Timur is situated inside an consuming home (referred to as Yummy Meals Home btw). You will note an extended queue there particularly throughout lunchtime and for good cause.

They’ve obtained 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 way in which) however like me, most individuals are there for the Nasi Ayam Penyet!

Here’s a humorous reality for you – I’ve eaten there SO MANY TIMES but it surely’s ALWAYS bungkus (takeaway)! This overview is first time I’m consuming there on location LOL primarily as a result of I wanted to take photographs ah 😝. All different instances, 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 rooster is… SEDAP GILER!
It has this excellently crisp exterior that’s as tasty because it appears. And the rooster 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 aspect. 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 may have plain white rice, the model at Pondok Pantai Timur options rice that’s just like what you get with a serving of rooster rice. This isn’t unusual (fairly just a few different locations serve this as properly) and it’s this additional flavour that makes it even sedap for me.

And final however positively not least, the factor that many regard as a very powerful element – THE SAMBAL!

I’m completely happy 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 may have a sambal that’s heavy on the tomatoes (which is definitely the normal approach) 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!! Actually, I purchase there so typically that when the makcik acknowledges me, she auto consists of additional sambal 😝 so candy of her!

And in case you have been questioning – makan there, takeaway or order for supply – all additionally nonetheless energy 💪🏼.
If you happen to can’t make it right down to their stall, you’ll be able to place bulk orders and supply through their web site!

Really, 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 kind of dishes that it’s important to strive for yourselves to know for those who prefer it or not. It is a family-run enterprise and I believe that performs an enormous half is being persistently energy all these years.

However I’ve mentioned it earlier than and I’ll say it once more – that is my FAVOURITEST Nasi Ayam Penyet! ❤
