MonRods Kitchen

2009_10_31 Monrods 002a

When I was first introduced to Malay Nasi Ayam Periuk Besar, I was honestly very skeptical about it. Cuz to me anything without lard and garlic, I doubt it’s delicious, tasty or fragrant.

Well this really proofs me wrong, and I am apologizing to have such judgment on this.

Cuz, you know why? Because their Nasi Ayam Periuk Besar honestly is really really good! I’ll give a big thumb up on it.

I brought hubby there today, and I told him it’s a must to try on their Nasi Ayam (aka Chicken Rice). Especially their chili sauce which is made of turmeric sauce, belachan (shrimp paste), shallots, and tomatoes the goes very well with the chicken.

I was told they are pretty famous in Kedah state, and this is the 1st branch in Penang, and was told another branch in Komtar is coming up too.

What’s their signature? All types of Nasi Ayam! Nasi Ayam Dot Mai, Nasi Ayam Madu (Honey Chicken), Nasi Ayam Panggang (BBQ Chicken), and Nasi Ayam Kampung.

But what’s the best among these four, Dot Mai is the best. In fact, Nasi Ayam Kampung was not available when I dined in, I wonder why.

Nasi Ayam Dot Mai!

Apart from these chickens rice, they also serve Western Food, Noodles and other light snacks.

Western food like Chicken Chop, Black Pepper Chicken Chop, Fish & Chips. Snacks vary from Monrod Cucur Ikan Bilis, Monrod Cucuk Kodok, French Fries, Fish Nuggets, Chicken Nuggets, Chicken Sausages.

All items are value for money, and with the current economy and also Penangites’ preference, this isn’t a bad place to consider.

Deco is sort of contemprary, and urban feel.
