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 record of faves for a lot of I’m positive. It’s possible you’ll come throughout a number of totally 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 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 in the event you requested me the place to seek out my favorite Nasi Ayam Penyet, I’ll inform you to move to Ubi.

Nasi Ayam Penyet ($5.50)

Pondok Pantai Timur is situated inside an consuming home (known as Yummy Meals Home btw). You will notice 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 best way) 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 nevertheless it’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 understand how they do it however their fried rooster is… SEDAP GILER!
It has this excellently crisp exterior that’s as tasty because it seems to be. And the rooster meat itself is tremendous tender to the max. The makcik wields her mighty mini-Mjolnir because the ayam goes via a (actually) smashing good time. The tip consequence – 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. Effectively, whereas this one is probably not 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 standard 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 rooster rice. This isn’t unusual (fairly a number of different locations serve this as effectively) and it’s this additional flavour that makes it even sedap for me.

And final however undoubtedly not least, the factor that many regard as an important element – THE SAMBAL!

I’m pleased to report that the sambal right here is ??? It’s spicy and also you’re gonna get sturdy 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 standard 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 at all times 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 💪🏼.
For those who can’t make it right down to their stall, you may place bulk orders and supply through their website!

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 kind of dishes that you must attempt for yourselves to know in the event you prefer it or not. This can be a family-run enterprise and I feel that performs an enormous 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! ❤
