Fiery Ayam Penyet AP Opens in Brunei

AP

Ayam Penyet is a traditional Indonesian cuisine which originates from Surabaya. It is a popular chicken dish where the fresh chicken is specially marinated with various spices and herbs . The meat is then smashed with a wooden headed hammer and deep fried until golden light brown.

In Brunei, this dish has gained a loyal following among diners, both local and foreign. Everyone has their favorites and heated discussions can be had over who serves the best ayam penyet in town.

Last night the foodie gang and I checked out the new Ayam Penyet player in town, Restoran Ayam Penyet AP. The restaurant is located at Gadong Central, which is quickly becoming a new foodie haven in BSB. The food lived up to its name. Fiery! But delicious at the same time!

The restaurant officially opens today and if you’re in the mood for some fiery sambal, then come on down and give this place a try! Its located at Units 20 & 21, Ground Floor Block B, Gadong Central. Call 2427342 for reservations.
