If you’re a big fan of ayam penyet, then Ayam Penyet Mak Maya should be included in your eating list. They serves their ayam penyet differently, in which the chicken is more tender and juicy. The burning hot sambal is prepared “fresh” on the spot by pounding chilies, peanut, tomato and more to the paste form. Pair it all in one spoonful, amazing! Other than ayam penyet, they also serve ikan kembung and ikan keli.
