WHEN IN BANDUNG, EAT LIKE THE SUNDANESE DO - PART 2
Pak Dede the tour guide took us to Ayam Penyet Surabaya so we could sample the original "ayam penyet" Bandung style. "Ayam penyet" is not something uncommon for us Malaysians but trying the food abroad could be different.
THE VERDICT: It was delicious and the main difference was the rice was served without soup. The chicken piece was much smaller. (All the chicken pieces served in Jakarta and Bandung were smaller in size if compared to what we get at home.) And everyone seemed to be leaving the restaurant with tears in their eyes. The "sambal" (squashed chilies) was super hot but I personally liked it. The hotter the better. I think the price should be reasonable for travelers or foreigners on a budget trip.
