Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to The Chicken Rice Shop, Malaysia’s leading chain of halal family restaurants, for their new Ayam Rempah Aroma, a dish created especially for the Ramadhan to Syawal period.
Ayam Rempah Aroma was developed by Dato’ Chef Ismail Ahmad, Malaysia’s very own celebrity chef and Brand Ambassador for The Chicken Rice Shop, combining the different flavours of traditional Malay rendang with an assorted mix of herbs and spices. Exquisitely fragrant and rich in flavour, these nostalgic ingredients promise to make Ayam Rempah Aroma a wholesome yet truly harmonious dish.
Dato’ Chef Ismail also made sure that the freshest chicken is first grilled to perfection before aromatic herbs and spices like green chilli, lemongrass, shallot, fennel and cumin are used to complete the dish. Dried chilli is then sprinkled on the dish for that extra “kick”.
YM Tunku Dato’ Mu’tamir Bin Tunku Tan Sri Mohamed, Chairman of TCRS Restaurants Sdn Bhd (TCRS) said, “The Chicken Rice Shop has always been known as a place where all Malaysians can come together to enjoy a delicious, authentic and wholesome Malaysian meal.”
“In creating Ayam Rempah Aroma with Dato’ Chef Ismail, our aim was to create a special dish that takes its cue from age-old Malay cooking traditions so that all Malaysians can come together and enjoy it while appreciating the rich tapestry and culture we embrace here in our country.”
The Chicken Rice Shop’s Ayam Rempah Aroma is available a la carte (2 pieces) for RM16.90. There are also various combo meals available that caters from one up to six persons. Combo meals start from RM23.90 only.
Priced only RM9.90 per glass, the Soya 3 Sensasi is perfect for during the breaking of fast this Ramadhan or even during Hari Raya. Or just add on with RM3.90 per glass when you purchase any meal.
Dato’ Chef Ismail will also share tips, techniques and information on nutrition and eating healthy during this period through videos that will be uploaded on to YouTube every week throughout the month of Ramadan.
