The Bawal Penyet ($4.50) here is boomz! A whole pomfret battered and deep-fried till crispy. The batter was flavoured with cumin and tumeric which made every bite delish. The fish was nicely moist without being overly oily. Accompanying the fish was a fragrant chicken rice and sweet-spicy sambal chilli. Eat everything together and boomz.
The Ayam Penyet ($4) on the other hand was disappointing with its tough and dry flesh. :/
The next time I am back here, I'll certainly either hit the Bawal Penyet again or attempt the Sotong Penyet which looks equally yums!

Chew On This: Penyet is the Malay word for smash. And most stalls usually take a wooden mallet to gently smash the chicken a little to tenderise it. Thankfully, this stall spared the fish from this
