Waroeng Penyet Restaurant serves Traditional Indonesian Food and can be found at The Curve, Mutiara Damansara. It is a relatively new restaurant, considering the fact that it was opened last year by 4 Indonesians living in Singapore. I came to know about the restaurant through their flyers while shopping at The Curve few weeks ago. Then I remembered a friend, who told me about a good Indonesian restaurant that serves really good fried chickens, which happened to be Waroeng Penyet.
Waroeng Penyet’s mascot is a cute looking chicken that really catches people’s attention lol. But the location at The Curve is not really strategic because it’s just beside the public toilet. Hmm.
The restaurant was full of people although the time was well over lunch hour. The setting is simple, almost like a fast food restaurant.
Our drinks were Milo Dinosaur @ RM3.90 and iced lemon tea (again, lol) Milo Dinosaur is iced milo drink with lots of milo powder added on top of the drink. It was very thick and I love it! I have tried making this at home but somehow it just doesn’t taste as nice.. I wonder why.
First to arrive, Ayam Penyet @ RM7.90! The word Penyet carries the meaning of flattened. So, Ayam Penyet would be known as flattened fried chicken. This is their signature dish and you definitely have to try this, super crispy! There are a couple of side dishes that came with the chicken but I couldn’t really identify most of them. All I know is the cabbage with the chili is damn spicy! Beware of it lol.
We also had a Ikan Bakar @ RM9.90. If we are not mistaken this should be a Tilapia or better known as “Fei Zhou Yu” (Africa Fish) to us. I actually preferred the Ikan Bakar more. It goes really well with the sweet soya sauce and rice. The downside is the lack of meat on the fish. Maybe it was too flattened? lol. My only complaint is that a serving of white rice cost RM1.90! I know the price of rice increased recently, but RM1.90 for a plate of white rice? That’s really overpriced, don’t you think?
Let’s be honest, although food choices at The Curve is vast and tempting, they are freaking expensive. So, I really welcome Waroeng Penyet for their nice and affordable food. Many celebrities like Peterpan and Samsons, the famous Indoesian bands have visited Waroeng Penyet too. And you could see their happy faces on posters in the restaurant lol.
