When in Singapore: Indonesian BBQ Grill

I am going to discuss another local favorite here in Singapore. A dish borrowed from across the shore - our dear Indonesia. Introducing the juicy and tasty Ayam Panggang (grilled chicken). The reason why I like it so much is because it tastes like the chicken barbecue from the very famous restaurant in Manila, Aristocrat. (I guess that's a way foreigners try to lessen homesickness - looking for dishes with taste close to something from their home country).

Ayam Panggang is simply a grilled chicken (mostly leg part), with that special barbecue sauce. The meal is partnered with plain white rice (with option to put curry on it. I recommend you to try it with curry) and scrambled egg (sliced like a pizza). Sometimes, the meal includes a spoonful of veggie as your side dish and a simple soup. This meal is only less than 10 dollars - that's making it extra amazing.

So here's a treasure find from different hawker centers in Singapore (take note that not all hawker / kopitiam / food republic places have this dish). I have tried this dish in Ion Orchard, Marina Square and Dhoby Ghaut. So far, all tastes great.  The next time you visit Singapura, you can shy away from Chinese meals and try this lovely Indonesian dish that you will surely love.
