One of my favorite restaurants at the Curve is Waroeng Penyet that serves the pretty unique ayam penyet (flattened fried chicken) that was completely new to me only slightly over a year ago. I have been there quite a few times since but always loath the idea of having to brace the traffic and having to pay parking to get my favorite Indonesian food.

So when I spotted this place on the way home after a round of hitting golf balls everywhere at the Sunway driving range, I immediately suggest to Horng that we should just have our dinner there.

clean and air conditioned interior

The set up of Ayam Penyet AP is just a notch above your normal kopitiam. There are a few tables alfresco style for those who might want to have puff after meal, and also plenty of tables for those who prefer air conditioning. The restaurant is clean and comfortable tho there isn’t any effort being put in interior decoration.

The menu here is a bit more extensive compared to Waroeng Penyet, other than the standard Ayam penyet, they have beef, cat fish, prawn, bakso (beef ball), mixed vegetable, and a few types soups too.

ayam penyet, ikan penyet (keli), and terung penyet

We ordered ayam penyet, lele penyet (keli, cat fish), and terong penyet (eggplant) to go with two rice for dinner.

The ayam penyet (I had the drumstick) was just as tasty as their counterpart at the Curve. Crispy, flavorful, and with that very addictive hot sambal. I also like the fact that they give more crispy bits.

The deep fried cat fish too was not bad in its own, very aromatic and soft in texture. And as a person who loves eggplant, I absolutely adore the terung penyet. The crispy bits and sambal works very well with the contrasting soft texture of fried eggplant. Very delicious.

satisfying dinner

Ayam penyet was priced at RM 7 (already the most expensive item in their menu!), the fish was RM 6.50, and eggplant only RM 2.50. Two plates of rice at RM 1.20 each and you have a very satisfying dinner for way less than RM 20.00!

I am sure this is one of the places I would visit repeatedly.

Some of you lucky noobs had the experience of holiday in Bali, for the rest of us, there is BumbuBali restaurant, giving a taste of Bali that is close to home and offering a peace of mind while dining.

BumbuBali at Puchong
nice menu with illustrations, good atmosphere too

The establishment is located in Puchong, at the shop lots opposite the Giant hypermarket of Bandar Puteri. Saturday night was very busy, we had to wait some ten minutes for the table even though we got there pretty late for dinner at close to 9pm. Obviously that was a good sign for a restaurant.

We ordered Nasi Campur BumbuBali (mixed rice), and Campur-campur tiga (3 mixes). We had initially wanted to order more, lucky the waiter adviced against it as the portions are rather large.

Nasi Campur BumbuBali is served with either potatoe rice (or yellow rice), with beef (or chicken, or lamb), squid, fish, prawn, and kangkung belacan (vege). It was more than a full meal and I reckon even Kim could not finish it.

are you feeling hungry?

Campur-campur tiga is supposedly an appertizer, but the portion can feed a suan. The three combinations is deep fried calamari, chicken wings, and satey on lemon grass stem. The satey was especially good and highly recommended by your culinary expert, me.

The food was great, something different and yet pretty close to local taste. It’s a bonus if you are one of the ex-bali tourists who misses the Bintang beer, they sell it here! However, as a good boy and all, I had star fruit juice instead. Total cost of the meal was RM 66+, pretty reasonable for a taste of Bali without the terrorist threat.
