Ayam balar ojolali is one of the places I look for whenever I'm at town and craving for the all-time favourite, ayam penyet. One thing I love about ojolali ms ayam penyet is that it is served crispy and he chilli oh my. The chilli itself is spicy and combine it together with rice and chicken, you'll get the best combination of ayam penyet you can ever imagine. Don't forget to try the alpukat! For those who cannot take spice as much but still would love to try, order the alpukat and it'll help you cool down!
Delicious ayam bakar and superb sambal..! I had my first Gurame fried fish here and it was awesome! I still can't forget the taste of that fish.. So fresh and so juicy... Plus lots of crunch.. The chicken is not undercook,it's perfect especially when u dip with the sambal...
My mom's from Indonesia and i've definitely had better than what I ordered.
Fine, so maybe I ordered the wrong thing but my Bee Hoon Bakso (Beef ball noodle) was bad. The soup tasted like it was filled with msg and the beef balls were hard with a chewy skin. Kind of like it came from a frozen pack. So yeah, I was definitely not impressed and if anyone has recommendations for good bee hoon bakso, i'm all ears:)

If you want ayam penyet (Malay-style fried chicken that's smashed before serving), you've gotta go to Lucky Plaza. There must be at least 5 different eateries selling this Indonesian fare.
This eatery is really quite a hole-in-the-wall, with a seating capacity of about 20 people, but fret not, they have a separate shop unit, about 3 shop units away, that can house another 10 diners.
1) Ayam Goreng Set ($6.50), crispy juicy fried chicken loaded with delectable batter crisps and served with a beancake, fried beancurd and rice. They have 2 types of sambal chilli, one with kecap manis (sweet black sauce) and one without. Mix them up together and you get a potent fiery mix that's lipsmackingly good with the fried chicken
2) Soto Ayam ($4.50) Malay-style chicken soup that's both wholesome and rustic, with the distinct taste of tumeric and cumin accenting the lightly spiced clear soup
the other dishes didn't leave much of an impression. now that there are many indonesian eating places in the area they kinda merge together and average stuff are just... average.
but, the ayam bakar is good! thinking about the sauce alone makes me salivate. the meat is almost fall off the bone, but still retains a nice bite. chicken is well marinated, with a good char-grilled flavour. the sauce, which is available from a sticky plastic container on the table, is to die for! it's basically indonesia kecap manis (sweet soya sauce), with sliced shallots, lemongrass, and a bit of chilli. yummy stuff!
the ambience, however, leaves much to be desired. place is cramped, got another sitting area a few doors away but even smaller. plates are a bit to small and curved, hard to manouvre food on it. tabletop and condiment containers are sticky, sticky.. when i think of the place i miss the food but can't stand the stickiness of the things. owner/manager please do something about it!
