Chewing clean a drumstick and licking my fingers, the discovery of Warung Ayam Golek Ganu Kite was my food highlight for the month. RM17 nett (price might vary if the chicken is bigger but generally it starts at RM17) for a whole, cooked, juicy, delicious bird was akin to hitting a jackpot for a carnivore like me!
Any regular at the wet market could tell you that on average, a raw, whole chicken is priced from RM12 – RM16 and here I am, devouring a cooked bird for mere RM17!
** FYI, Tesco is running a promo now for RM5-6/kg).
Another Ayam Golek closer to PJ is Ayam Golek 5 Bintang at Pantai Dalam but that was RM26/bird.
Available dine-in with or without rice, or for takeaways, these ayam golek were marinated in a myriad of secret spices and generously doused with a unique sauce before they were being spun over charcoal embers for hours. The heat was not searing but imparts steady temperature that cooks the birds into juicy succulence.
This row of “shop” lots right where the T102 Rapid Feeder Bus (exact stop is “Kuarters ATM Kem Paya Jaras”) stop is popular throughout the day for local Malay food and there are at least FIVE different ayam golek stalls here.
Racks of whole chickens on three-tier rotisserie style grills is an alluring sight and attracts a steady flow of customers. This continues until early evening. As the chicken are cooked by the batches and left on the grill (further away from direct embers once cooked), there is piping hot, succulent chicken to be enjoyed anytime from lunch until midnight.
