Ayam Penyet at NTU Hall 2, Singapore

Singapore. Tucked away at the corner of Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Hall2 Canteen at Jurong West is this Ayam Penyet stall which serves a formidable selection of dishes in “Ayam Penyet” style.

HalalFoodTravels.com got down today for food testing and we were delighted to experience Steam Chicken Ayam Penyet in special hot sauce. The color, aroma, texture, rice, salad combo were a delightful mix of penyet perfection. I must say, they have found the right formula for Ayam Penyet.  Served with curry rice, or without, the chicken comes out steamingly fresh and bathed in their patented “penyet” sauce.

Stall serves
+ Ayam Penyet Steam (Recommended)
+ Ayam Penyet (Fried)
+ Ikan Dory Penyet
+ Ikan Grouper Penyet
+ Ikan Bawal (Pomfret) Penyet
+ Chicken Wing Penyet
+ Udang (Prawn) Penny

(Looks like we are going a few more rounds.)

What We Like
+ Halal Certification clearly on display
+ Halal cutleries

Unless you are driving or in the region of Jurong West, this stall is rather far away from the nearest MRT (Jurong West).

Stall also takes orders for huge takeaways for office parties, etc.

So if you are in the vicinity of NTU, drop down to Hall 2 for a sumptuous meal of Ayam Penyet.
If you are a penyet fan, this is a must go.

There is another ayam penyet stall in another part of NTU. So make sure you got the one at Hall 2.

Yana Restaurant at MBK Bangkok

Located at the 5th level of MBK Mall in Bangkok, Yana Restaurant  enjoys  a good reputation among travellers for being a noteworthy halal stop.  If you are looking for halal food in Bangkok, Yana Restaurant would appear on most halal food apps and search engines so it’s not difficult to find.  Located within MBK makes it such convenient stop after all the shopping at MBK itself.  Halal food travellers can locate MBK by walking across the link bridge at SIAM BTS.

What We Like

  • Displays Halal Certification prominently
  • Authentic thai cuisines (very tasty indeed!)
  • Fusion/Western dishes
  • Clean and renovated with good interior design
  • Space for large family outings
  • Within MBK – so you can shop then stop here for a meal then shop again =)
  • MBK is located at Siam BTS

Price: Rather pricy for the budget traveller but still affordable if you don’t order too much. Food is tasty so it’s kinda forgivable.

Their famous BBQ giant river prawn in garlic is no longer on the menu which is a major minus coz it’s reputed to be one of the best halal finds in Thailand.  So if we have enough travellers requesting for it, maybe they will bring it back to their menu =)
