Featured Indonesian/Indian Stall
Penyet & BBQ
Established in 2008, Penyet & BBQ aims to bring the “real penyet cuisine” to local diners. It takes pride in serving up an array of authentic Indonesian penyet specialties at its eight outlets islandwide 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 tenderize the meat – after being deep-fried to golden brown. The dish is accompanied with scrumptious savory sides such as fried tempeh (fermented soybean cake), fried beancurd, crackling golden batter bits, Penyet & BBQ’s homemade chili sambal, boiled vegetables and a bowl of steamed rice.
Signature dishes: Ayam Penyet, Ayam Bakar, Ayam Balado, Ayam Cabe Hijau, Bawal Penyet

Dapur Padang (Padang Kitchen) is owned by Mrs Wahyuningsilh. Their sister outlet, called Padang Padang, is located at ION’s Food Opera. Recipes here are inspired by the owner’s grandmother – a third generation Peranakan from Indonesia. Padang cuisine is the traditional food of ‘Urang Minang’ (Minang people) who inhabits West Sumatra, Indonesia, and retains its original taste and health benefits. Customers have to look out for their new Gulai Mutton which joins their large menu offerings. The key to this cuisine’s rich flavour and mouth-watering aroma is the correct blend of spices. They are committed to using only natural ingredients and traditional recipes for all their dishes.
