Super Penyet – Yummy Ayam Penyet Stall in Chong Pang Market
There are many good foods around Chong Pang Market and Food Centre, and Super Penyet is one of them. As its name suggests, Super Penyet is famous for Ayam Penyet.
Ayam penyet is basically fried chicken that is smashed with the pestle-and-mortar to make it softer and served with slices of cucumber and a fiery-hot spicy sambal. Super Penyet’s Nasi Ayam Penyet ($5) comes with aromatic nasi lemak rice enhanced by coconut milk. The chicken was marinated so well such that its flavours went into the tender meat. It’s also fried to a crisp golden brown and we couldn’t help but finish the crispy skin first. The homemade sambal sauce, consisting of a blend of chilli, shallots, garlic, shrimp paste, tamarind and lime juice, packs a really good punch!
Nasi Goreng Ayam Penyet ($5.50) differs from the usual ayam penyet as it comes with fried rice. We found the rice very tasty, with a good consistency in texture and having a well-balanced moist – not overly mushy-soft nor overly hard and grainy. The hawker has well-coated each grain of rice with the spices they used while cooking. This Nasi Goreng complements the already superb fried chicken very well. Another popular item in the stall is the unique Ikan (fish) Penyet.
Super Penyet also makes their own Malay kuehs such as Ondeh Ondeh ($1.50) and Kueh Lupis ($1), made with glutinous rice that we found were consistent and not too sticky to the extent it gets stuck onto your teeth when you’re chewing. This is complemented by shredded coconut and a rich thick palm sugar which enhanced its taste.
They also have outlets in Starhub Green and Changi Business Park.
