Ayam Penyet

lunch was at Ayam Penyet House @ the basement of NTUC Income Beach Junction (No. 67 Beach Rd).  ayam penyet simply means ‘smashed chicken’.  sounds interesting doesn’t it and so is its taste.  

served in the traditional wooden plate, the crispy yet moist chicken is dished with super hot chilli sambal (paste),  fried tofu and raw veges.  its so finger licking good but careful with the chilli paste – it was so hot tat my mouth was numb for while. ha ha 🙂
