UTOPIA: Penyet Express, IOI City Mall

Penyet Express, IOI City Mall

My 'ambitious' colleague has once mentioned of 'conquering' every F&B outlet in IOI city mall, which is nearby our office. There were a few hit and misses while exploring those eatery outlets...one of the worse that we have tried out would be ayam penyet...
WHY SO?
just by looking at this picture, i guess ur appetite will be gone within second....
oily soup, very dry chicken, rice without gravy, and raw cabbage???
besides, the chili sambal was tad too spicy even for myself (who can handle spicy food)
 we have 8 person and all of us agreed the same...
no more ayam penyet next time...
i guess the only stuff that is passable is the sirap bandung...which is only RM1 top-up with every main meal order
 that place has moderate interior...but i guess this place wouldn't survive long in that mall with so many other competitive F&Bs.
 Here's the menu. Click for a larger view.

Wah so bad ah? Last time my spouse ate ayam penyet I didn't even try a bit of it because it wss spicy.

Hmm, maybe they serve raw veggie as ulam. But I never seen people use cabbage as ulam to be honest.

Also, I think ayam penyet is supposed to be dry. At least the ones I see in Malaysia are (Indonesian version is wet). Maybe it is not horrible, just that ayam penyet is not for you guys.

Mun: mayb it is not for us...we are not used to eating dry chicken...It was so dry that I can't feel like eating chicken. And the sambal was so spicy that doesn't help to enhance the flavour.

RealGunners: I haven't try the indo version yet...I tot they are all the same?

I often had no luck to eat a delicious Ayam Penyet too.
I tried good ones at Malay hawker stalls where they served the chicken very hot with the right chilly sauce.

I love ayam penyet. If I want to eat, I will go to a decent one and don't mind paying for a little bit more since I hardly eat it.
