Waroeng Penyet, Nu Sentral: Indonesian Food

Who doesn't love a good fried chicken? Recently during a visit to Nu Sentral with the kids, we decided to have lunch at Waroeng Penyet, serving Indonesian "fast food" such as its famous ayam penyet. Other items here include fried catfish, beef, prawn, soups and grilled items.

Place your order at the counter, pay, you will be given a number and the food will be served to your table once ready.

We had the Ayam penyet paha (flattened chicken thigh RM10.50) which comes with fried tofu, tempeh and fresh local vegetables (cucumber haha!). The crispy chicken has been marinated in Java spices and then deep fried. It was moist and juicy. You can eat it with one of three types of sambal (self-service) depending on the spiciness level that you like.

We also ordered the bawal penyet (flattened fried pomfret (RM14.50)). The pomfret was a good size, so there was plenty of meat for sharing. Similarly it comes with fried tofu, tempeh and cucumber.  Hubby loves the rawon soup (RM10.90), and orders it whenever he comes across it in an Indonesian restaurant. The beef soup gets its colour from the black nut (keluak). Usually the restaurants tend to use lesser quality beef cuts so it can be chewy, but the beef chunks here were pretty tender.

Opening times: 10am to 10pm daily.

Price: Total bill rm39.90 for 4 pax.

Location: Waroeng Penyet, Lot 4-08, Nu Sentral Mall, Level 4, 201 Jalan Tun Sambanthan, 50470 Kuala Lumpur.

  1. So far, two ayam penyet restaurants I tried have been disappointing. Perhaps I should try this one.

  2. We have two Indonesian franchises here and lots and lots of locals selling ayam penyet, not all good and not cheap. I like the one where the rice served is wrapped with banana leaf.
