The first Malioboro Restaurant was opened in January, 2000 at Jalan Kediri 50, Kuta, Bali in January 2000 and shortly followed by the opening of another restaurant named Hayam Wuruk on June 24, 2000 located at Jalan Hayam Wuruk 88, Denpasar, Bali, taking the street’s name as its brand. We provided our customers with delicious soft bone chickens as our unique signature dish. The chicken was marinated with our special recipe and pressure-cooked to ensure that the whole chicken, including the bones, was soft and edible. The soft bone chicken turned out to be a favourite cuisine among residents and since Bali is a hugely popular holiday destination, it was also a hit among tourists, thus attracting many loyal customers worldwide.


Our unique products, combined with its special taste, creates a strong product differentiation strategy for our restaurants that is unlike other regular fried chicken with hard, inedible bones. At this moment, Malioboro and Hayam Wuruk restaurant chain has twenty outlets in Bali, Jakarta, Surabaya, Bekasi, Tangerang, Depok, Padang, Pekanbaru, and Yogyakarta. The growth of Malioboro and Hayam Wuruk restaurants in the past thirteen years is a great testimony of public acceptance of the excellent taste, warm atmosphere, and reasonable price of our restaurants.


Due to popular demands from our customers that come from around the worlds, starting 2007, we started to plan for expanding our business beyond Indonesia. In 2012, we decided to open our first international outlet in Singapore and we carefully prepare for everything down to every last bit of ingredients to make sure we can deliver the same quality of food to our Singapore’s customers. Our efforts become fruitful in 8 November 2012 when finally our restaurant was open in Feast @ Jurong Point Shopping Centre. We commit in delivering high quality food with unique taste and reasonable price to our customers.

eat bone and al

Malioboro Soft Bone Chicken, located at Jurong Point, is a halal eatery from Bali that offers chicken that can be consumed whole. That's right,  bone and all. The chicken is cooked at high pressurising temperatures till the bone becomes so brittle that it becomes crunchy. The one downside is that as it is cooked as such high temperature a lot of the natural juices get sucked out of the meat. However, given that it is well marinated with strong sauces available it more than makes up for this.

Another item to try is the prawns with patai. I liked that it had lots of sweet chili and was not too spicy so that one could taste the sweetness in the dish.

All in all, an interesting experience that I would recommend trying.

Having seen the good reviews here, I decided to give it a try. Staff is indeed helpful and cheerful. They quickly set me down in a seat and wasted no time introducing their signature salted egg chicken set to me. Interesting! Never tried anything like it before so I decided to go with their recommendations without looking at the menu. Food eventually came and it didn't really look like those in the pictures taken by Mr Runningman in his blog. Firstly the sauce was not a lot. The rice was a bit too little for me. The chicken was dry on the inside but tasted pretty decent when paired with the delicious salted egg sauce. But less than halfway through the sauce ran out and I wanted to ask for more sauce. Turns out they charge $2 for extra sauce; I hadn't looked at the menu previously. The helpful staff offered some sweet sauce to go with the chicken when I commented it was too dry. In any case, I soldiered on and continued with the meal. The chicken skin still retains it's crispness and as claimed, the bones are really soft. Nothing is wasted. The sambal is average. Maybe standards have dropped since the sterling reviews a couple of years ago, as evidenced by the near empty restaurant. For the price paid perhaps you're better off eating something else.

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
