Ayam Goreng 99 – Indonesian style chicken

Still craving the infamous Indonesian style chicken from Ayam Goreng 99, L and J headed off to Kingsford again with two other friends P and S.  
L, P and S all had their famous char-grilled chicken :)  The authentic Indonesian chicken was nicely marinated with a choice of breast or thigh.  It was bursting with flavor compared to your typical charcoal chicken and you could really taste that char grilled flavour. 
J tried the deep fried Javanese style chicken which was somewhat similar to the char-grilled version (it even looks the same haha, we had to ask the waiter which one is which :P). This one was probably more dry comparatively, but it’s a good sort of dry… the meat was more fluffy and lose, definitely in a good way :D 
Oh and don’t forget the ketchup sauce (not the tomato sauce haha but the sweet Indonesian soy sauce kecap manis :P) or the chili sauce that both go really nice with the chickens!
L also tried the deep fried soybean and tofu which was nicely fried with a thick batter. They were relatively plain in flavour but made as a good alternative to rice to eat with the chicken.

We also tried the Chicken satay :D which came covered in a really thick and rich peanut sauce, sweet soy sauce and deep fried shallots  :)
Chicken Satay ($8 for 5 sticks)
 For drinks, we had the avocado juice and cendol :D The avocado juice might sound really rich and filling, but it’s actually quite fresh! The mix of mocha and condensed milk made the drink more like a milkshake making it very addictive. On the other hand, the ice cendol was probably more heavy but still very good with everything in the right proportions :D

Green jelly with Palm sugar and coconut milk ($5)

Nibble on Nibblies! xx

mmmm i love avocado! i once ordered an avocado and banana milkshake at a cafe and the waitress had this horrified look on her face as if to say "omg! i can't believe someone actually ordered it!" but it was delicious :P*

oh dear avocado milkshake. is that really good? i've never tried it before but i'm scared to. i went to ayam goreng 99 so long ago and i still haven't had a chance to blog my review :-( but they did make an interesting beef rendang which didn't look too good but was nice.

OOhh we absolutely love this place. Every now and then we'd crave for their char-grilled chicken and the really hot/spicy chili sauce! Another favourite of ours is their stir-fried rice vermicelli!

those satay sticks look delicious. We went to an indonesian restaurant last week and there was fried shallots on everything and I was very happy!

Very interesting blog. A lot of blogs I see these days don't really provide anything that attract others, but I'm most definitely interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know.
