Ayam Penyet Ria

This place blew our minds and will make even the toughest of the chilli warriors succumb. I have never ventured into Lucky Plaza before today, and went there at the suggestion of a friend.

I had the Ayam Penyet (Smashed Fried Chicken) ($6.90). It was served with deep-fried beancurd (tahu goreng), soybean cake (tempeh goreng), two pieces of cabbage and balacan-chilli relish. I would say the highlight of this dish is the balacan-chilli- left us scrambling for water and tissue paper. The chicken is moist and the skin is nicely deep fried. I like the fact that the meat shreds off the bones easily. As for the crumbs, I wished they had a little more flavour. We were all hoping that we had enough rice to sustain us through the chilli adventure and there was barely enough rice.

It's evidently a ploy not to serve water here because the spiciness of the chilli forces you to buy drinks from them. But being stingy chilli warriors, we gritted our teeth, having tissue paper, water and sweets as our only saving grace.

Service wise, food took a little long to come and the people weren't that friendly. But anything for that crazy balacan chilli and crispy chicken!

Just a tip, if the first floor looks too crowded, go to the fourth floor! We didn't enter the first floor because there were so many people queuing, but were pleasantly surprised to see that there was another branch on the fourth floor.
