Malaysia is truly a food heaven!
Among the eateries that are mushrooming around the area of Mutiara Damansara, Waroeng Penyet is one of the established restaurants in The Curve shopping mall that serves traditional Indonesian food in a semi fast-food concept. Specifically focus in using Javanese recipe, Waroeng Penyet that started business since January 2007 has successfully gained a vast support from the local patrons especially for its famous Ayam Penyet.
Under the ‘Penyetz’ category in Waroeng Penyet’s ala carte menu, there are 7 selections can be chose from, including the Ayam Penyet, Daging (Empal) Penyet, Bawal Penyet, Udang Penyet, Lele Penyet, Bakso Penyet, and Wings Penyet.
Ayam Penyet (RM8.90)
Flattened fried chicken that marinated with Javanese spices and deep fried till golden perfection to seal in the aromatic flavors.
Topped with crunchy crisp batter, the serving comes with healthy tofu, tempeh, and mix vegetables on the side, plus the Waroeng Penyet’s secret recipe sambal that’s quite hot explosive for my spiciness tolerance! But no worries, those who like me can always opt for the mild salsa that tastes towards the sweet side with hint of spiciness only.
Daging (Empal) Penyet (RM8.90)
At first, I thought this flattened fried beef will taste dry and rubbery chewy. But hey, sometimes really can’t judge the book from its cover. It was my absolute favourite of the night!
Cooked well with the marinated herbs and spices, it diffused a tempting aromatic smell and flavor. The texture of course not the moist juicy type, but somehow the superb marinated sauce took the spot light and kinda overshadowed it.
Lele Penyet (RM7.90)
Be careful of the tiny bones! But despite the troublesome, the flattened fried catfish was still polished clean for its tasty marinated meat.
Under the ‘Grillz’ category in Waroeng Penyet’s ala carte menu, there are 5 selections can be chose from, including the Ayam Panggang, Bawal Bakar, Sate Ayam, Ikan Bakar, and Bakso Bakar.
Ayam Panggang (RM9.90)
Not so much into the fried stuffs? Waroeng Penyet offers their foods in grill type too, which to me is healthier, but I still like my crunchy bites on the outer layer.
Sate Ayam (RM9.90)
Different from the local satay suppliers, Waroeng Penyet’s version was marinated with their own recipe sauce, and I enjoyed the chicken satay for its tender meat and lots of addictive gravy.
Under the ‘Greenies’ category in Waroeng Penyet’s ala carte menu, there are 5 selections can be chose from, including the Gado-gado, Kangkong Balacan, Siomay Bandung, Petay Udang Balado, and Batagor.
Petay Udang Balado (RM11.90)
Enjoy strong flavor kind of dishes? This stir fried prawns with stink beans (petai) in fragrance spicy sauce should satisfy your taste buds well.
Under the ‘Soupilicious’ category in Waroeng Penyet’s ala carte menu, there are 5 selections can be chose from, including the Soto Ayam, Soup Buntut Ekor, Rawon Soup, Bakso Soup, and Sayur Asam.
Soup Buntut Ekor (RM11.90)
Being a soup person, am quite enjoyed savouring this bowl of tummy warming Javanese Oxtail Soup for its delightful flavor from the herbs and spices used. Compared to few others versions, Waroeng Penyet’s oxtail soup was clearer and less overpowering in taste, suitable for those who dislike the strong herb smell.
Rawon Soup (RM8.90)
Love it or hate it! Using black nut, or called buah keluak, as the main spice to prepare this Javanese beef soup, it has a strong rich tasting of nutty flavor. Boiled together with other herbs and spices, the locals will savour this quite often for its nutrition value.
