Speaking of One Junction, they have yet another new stall called the Traditional Kampung Chicken Rice and is having an Opening Promotion!!!
The origins of Ayam Penyet dishes is Indonesia, and the cooks travelled to Indonesia to learn how to prepare authentic Ayam Penyet dishes and, the sambal~~~ However, the cooks made improvements and modification to the dishes so that it can suit the local taste more, and is constantly creating new dishes, and that’s how you can now enjoy all the different 8 penyet dishes here.

And finally is a penyet dish that you’ve absolutely never tried before, duck meat prepared into Penyet Bebek.
Other than the 8 different types of ayam penyet dishes, they also have 4 different types of sambal for you to choose from. They spent a lot of efforts to create these 4 types of sambal and each with fresh ingredients and cooked over a long time using small heat to preserve the original taste of each ingredients added.
After tasting the 4 different sambals, we categorized the sambal into 3 levels of spiciness. The least spicy is the Sambal Thai that is slightly spicy, but is actually more sourly and goes really well with your meal as the acidity is a very appetizing. Followed by the original Sambal Penyet which is acceptable for most people. The second most spicy is the Sambal Tomato, and the most spicy is of course the Sambal Pedas.
Sambal Tomato is cooked with fresh tomato, but the spiciness is quite strong that it hits your taste buds as soon as you take them. The Sambal Pedas however slowly attacks your taste buds and grows more spicy gradually.
Other than providing 8 different Penyet dishes and 4 different sambals, they also prepare 3 different green vegetables for you to go along with your dish. The usual dishes will usually comes along with the Daun Raja, but they also have Kangkong and Bayam for you to choose from.
