A whole new restaurant serving you delicious local favourites including Chicken Rice, Ayam Penyet, Ayam Bakar, Hot Plate, and more has recently opened opposite SJK(C) Chung Hua No. 3. This place is the new best place to go for lunch and dinnerrrr~~ （♡∀♡）
The best thing about this place, other than the extensive menu with the array of delicious foods offered is that they have homemade sambal and sauces that will leave you craving for more! Other than that, the Ayam Bakar and the Ayam Penyet served all comes with a huge piece of chicken thigh to boost your satisfaction to the MAXIMUM!!
The interior of the restaurant offers a rustic feel with collections of items that dates as old as the second world war. A rather relaxing place to enjoy your meal really.
Now, let’s start with the foods!
First up is the 【Main Dishes】that ranges up to 13 different Bakar and Penyet dishes! Amazing right? You can choose from that many different Bakar and Penyet dishes in one place! Well, it’s called Happy GRILL Kitchen for a reason.
Which is why the first dish that you must go for is the Ayam Bakar with a huge piece of chicken thigh! The smoked Ayam Bakar has very strong and very fragrant smokiness, and since the chef hired is from Indonesia, the authenticity of this dish is definitely top notched.
The Ayam Bakar dish comes in 4 different sauces, the spicy Original with dried chilli homemade sambal, slightly more spicy Sambal Tomato, the sweet and savoury Kecap Manis, and the sour and slightly spicy Chimi Churri Sauce. Our personal favourite would be the Chimi Churri because the mix of the sour and spicy flavour blast open our appetite instantly, making us deeply in love with the dish as we crave for more and more!
Other than chicken, they also have Lamb Bakar Set and the Turmeric Beef Set that is just as equally as delicious.
Other than the Bakar dishes, the Penyet dishes are also delicious~~
The Ayam Penyet with one BIG piece of crispy chicken thigh costs only RM9.50! That is just OP! The chicken meat tender and juicy and the skin, crispy and satisfying!
Unlike the Ayam Bakar, the Ayam Penyet is covered with generous amount of sauce to provide you the extra mile of satisfaction! The chef told us that this is exactly how it is served and how they enjoy Ayam Penyet in Indonesia. And of course, the Ayam Penyet also comes with the same 4 different types of homemade and delicious sambal sauces.
Other than chicken, one other very satisfying penyet dish is the Ikan Penyet (Meckeral/Tilapia). This is also worthy of a try!
Next we have the【Hot Plate Series】
The hot plate series comes with a choice of 9 different dishes and you can choose from noodles and rice. The amount of the meats given is very generous, the plate can barely contain the ingredients in it anymore! With this much ingredients, the price is not expensive at all! The sizzling hot plates ranges from the cheapest RM7.50 to the highest RM16.50 only!
You can start with this Hot Plate Ayam Penyet that features the Ayam Penyet without any of the 4 sauces mentioned above, but served in the sizzling hot plate.
If you want to have some seafood served in the Hot Plate, we highly recommend the Hot Plate Butter Prawn Rice that features juicy and delicious prawns with the sweet butter sauce that goes very well with the rice!
OR, if you would like to have something even more heavyweight, then we REALLY recommend that you try out the Super Combo! This amazing dish comes with Chicken, Prawn, and Fish served in one hot plate to satisfy your different cravings in one go!
Another Hot Plate dish worth mentioning is this, the Trademark Sizzling Mushroom Chicken. The sauce from the mushroom chicken will be absorbed by the noodles and the rice, depending on what you go for. But both as equally as amazing.
Other that that, Happy Grill Kitchen also have our local favourite,【Chicken Rice】!
Their delicious, tender, and juicy chicken rice is the perfect choice especially if you want to look for a satisfying lunch! They have in store for you a few choices, but we urge that you try out their Steam Chicken Rice, Roasted Chicken Rice, and the Salad Chicken Rice.
Happy Grill Kitchen is open from the day to night time, if you’re there in the afternoon you could go for the main dishes that we mentioned. Or you could go for some sides and some of their ice cold beverages and desserts for afternoon tea~~~
Some of the more recommended sides includes the Corn Cob (BBQ), Deep Fried Wanton, and the Smoke Potato Egg Salad!
