Established in 2008, Penyet & BBQ aims to bring the “real penyet cuisine” to local diners and takes pride in serving up an array of authentic Indonesian penyet specialties at its eight outlets island-wide including Food Republic City Square.
Using only kampong chicken, the star of the Ayam Penyet dish boasts tender and juicy meat that is first marinated with several aromatic herbs and spices. Then, it is penyet (smashed) with a heavy wooden hammer – to loosen and tenderise the meat – after deep-frying it to golden brown.
The dish is accompanied with scrumptious savoury sides such as fried tempeh (fermented soy bean cake), fried beancurd, crackling golden batter bits, Penyet & BBQ’s homemade chilli sambal, boiled vegetables and a bowl of steamed rice.
