Review: Restoran Ayam Kampung Bandariya

ayam kg bandariya

That was my plate of mixed rice from Restoran Ayam Kampung Bandariya. I had had some sambal ikan bilis (anchovies), beans sprouts (taugeh) and the not-to-be-missed ayam kampung goreng. I kinda like the ikan bilis, a bit sweetish but yet spicy enough to pack some punch. I've a few types of gravies or rather curries (kuah campur) ladled over my white rice. In fact, a rather handsome young chap behind the counter was pretty generous with one of the gravy that contained chicken innards and french beans which made S very very jealous cos all he gotten was just the gravy heh. S, next time wear skirt lorrr kekekeke...

Ayam kampung is actually the Malay term for free range chicken. Essentially they're not very meaty and the meat are not tender at all due to the amount of space these chickens got to run about since they're not caged literally. So these chickens are lean and mean with all the exercises they got from their run about sessions. Normally, I'll buy these chickens to make Chinese soups. The flavour imparted is usually more intense and of course tastier.

This restaurant serves great deep fried ayam kampung. I can't really detects what were used to marinade the chicken before being deep fried. The chicken is usually crispy down right to the bones. The sambal (red and green chillies, bird eye chillies, roasted belachan and lime juice are detected) that serves along side the fried chicken compliments well. See how generous the handsome chap had laden my chicken with the sambal??? Not sure how much was my lunch as S had paid for it, yeah again... S very da generous one... Thank you, I still owe him one lunch and we might be going to Insaf (wait for the review IF we get to go there).

This restaurant is located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, right across Santa Chapati along Jalan Tun H.S. Lee (the earlier portion of the road where it intersects with Lebuh Ampang). Be there early as the restaurant gets filled up by 1pm! And oh yah... parking can be difficult but you may park at the super expensive open air carpark in front of the building formerly known as Boom Boom Room or 11LA (ahem... only old timers like me and S knew where is Boom Boom Room hehehehe... W was very blur when we mentioned that ahahaha!!! Goshhh... now you know how old I am eh?)

Uh, I know where Boom Boom Room is, heck I even remember when the place was a decent hangout, instead of being populated by drag queens who look like Olive Oyl.

Anyway, must try this place you reviewed. Good deep-fried' ayam kampung is hard to come by, even if the damn thing is not too hard to prepare. The price makes it a delicacy, more than how it is prepared, really.
