Malioboro Soft Bone Chicken

Asian

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.

Novel Edible Chicken Bones From Bali

Full Malioboro Soft Bone Chicken review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/07/malioboro-soft-bone-chicken-tasting.html


Malioboro Soft Bone Chicken is a Halal restaurant that was first established in Kuta, Bali, Indonesia, in 2000. The unique item at Malioboro Soft Bone Chicken, is their chicken which is pressure cooked till the bones become soft and edible.

Ambience at Malioboro Soft Bone Chicken is minimal and functional. The rather small, cramped layout has sufficient space to seat about 60 diners, but the colours are rather drab and the lighting is dim.

Service at Malioboro Soft Bone Chicken is very good. Staff are friendly and enthusiastic, able to make recommendations on the menu. They're also able to give some background on each item, especially how it fits into Indonesian / Balinese cuisine. Orders are fulfilled rather quickly, as is table clearing.

The menu is small and focused, with highlights being their signature soft bone chicken. In general, I find their food to be tasty, and prices are very affordable, costing an average of SGD 12 or so per person. Portion sizes are suitable for one, though big eaters may wish to get several dishes for sharing. Communal dining is encouraged here!

The Honey Sesame Soft Bone Chicken With Yellow Rice (SGD $9.90) features a tender, moist piece of chicken that has a tangy and sweet marinade of honey and the crunch of sesame seeds. The balance is just right, not overly sweet, and the entire piece of chicken can be consumed, even the bones! The yellow rice is fragrant and warm, and this add-on is worth it for an additional SGD $1 in price!

If you've ever eaten salted egg crab, you'll get a good idea how the Soft Bone Chicken With Salted Egg Sauce (SGD $8.90) tastes like. The salted egg sauce is incredibly yummy and generous, and I like that it coats the chicken without making it soggy. The meat is tender and moist, and the texture of eating the bones really reminds me of a soft shell crab.

I felt the Grilled Chicken Wings (SGD $4.20), while having a nice, savoury taste and a perfect grilled texture, lacked meat. Great for a snack, or for light eaters, but not very satisfactory as a dish. The Edible Soft Chicken Bones breaks conventions, looking at it, you don't think it's edible, but chew on it and you'll find it gives way easily, without even the slightest crunch. Supposedly, eating chicken bones provides your body with calcium!

The Tahu Telur (SGD $6.50) is done in typical Indonesian style, flat with a crisp outer layer and a soft interior. I like that the mound of vegetables adds some crunch to the texture, but I noticed the kecap manis sauce is slightly more sweet than the authentic versions in Indonesia.

I loved the Fried Sambal Petai (SGD $4.90), the chili here is quite shiok! A nice portion of petai is stir fried with ikan bilis / anchovies and sambal chili, resulting a a fragrant, aromatic, spicy dish. Best paired with rice!

Soft bone chicken- nothing wasted.

The shop name lives up to it's reputation. No pile of bones at the dinner plate because all is eaten, including the bones.

Food- We ordered soft shell crab, chicken in salted egg and with green chili coatings. Chicken is soft to the fork breaking up easily and the bones breaks up too. It's strange to crunch through the bone and rest it. It has a powdery texture.  The soft shell crab in salted egg batter was also tasty but be aware that it is deep fried - so lots of oil.  My favourite is the flat pancake style tahu goreng (fried tofu) with loads of vegetables - cabbage.  I would rather the cucumber and bean sprouts vegetables instead of the cabbage.  Drinks were tasty- I had the avocadao and tasted the ice campur (ice kachang) which had loads of fresh fruits.   Particularly tasty were the petai (beans) based sambals,  one with ikan bilis, and the other with prawns,  Went well with the yellow rice and white rice that was served with the chicken.

Value:  Good value as they items are reasonably priced.

Service:  Order at table and the food appears at the table. Set in a food court,  it is a store within the food court.  Comfortable seating and tables,  not to tightly squeezed together.

Service:  Friendly, quick and to the point.  

Ambience:  Quiet and cool as the aircon was working well.

chicken. gado. tahu. thats all.

order 1/3 of their menu. their food items is unfortunately limited, vegetables are cold, drinks are meagre in quality. However they do have a handful of dishes worth mentioning like their chicken, gado gado, tahu. reminded of magic wok back in their heyday. good for quick bite, some limited novelty. not recommended to bring someone u want to make an impression upon.
