Was craving ayam penyet and happened to be in town so decided to head here to satisfy my cravings! The ayam penyet here was solid! Crispy, juicy and tender chicken thigh with 5 types of chilli to choose from. I got the belado which was so shiok and fiery! Fried beancurd on the side was so good too! Will be back again definitely!

Found a stall selling good ayam penyet located in a coffee shop along the busy street of Jalan Besar (opposite Sim Lim Tower).

The chicken was crispy & tender; could be pulled apart easily as well. The accompanying homemade chilli was also excellent, spicy with hints of sweetness. I also love the crispy bits of batter, so sinful but yet so Sedap!

We also ordered the bawal penyet (fried flattened pomfret fish) ($12); the fish was super crispy as well with no fishy smell.

When I read that La Porpo is Chef Bjorn Shen’s favourite ayam goreng place, I knew I had to check this place out! We headed there for dinner on Saturday and there was quite a snaking queue, but I gotta say it was worth the wait as their ayam penyet is one of the best I’ve had so far in Singapore!

The chicken is really thoroughly smashed, and had a super crispy skin yet tender, juicy meat! The sambal chilli that came with it is seriously no joke - damn spicy and I had to ‘steal’ my friend’s coke 😂 to deal with the heat!. My only gripe was the butterfly pea rice (not sure if this is the default with the set, as I’ve seen variations with green pandan rice too), which I found quite clumpy and lacked any fragrance.

But it doesn’t really matter as the chicken trumped all! Will definitely keep this on my ayam penyet rotation, and will check out their highly raved ayam geprek too!
