BEHOLD! Its gonna be a spicy and fiery post!
Do you like eating Ayam Penyet? Similar to Ayam Penyet, Ayam Gepuk Pak Gembus is available in Seremban 2. (for Seremban readers, there is another outlet located at Senawang) Both are popular dish in Indonesia.
Both Ayam Penyet and Ayam Gepuk are quite similar. But the main difference will be the chili.

Ayam Gepuk Pak Gembus originally from Jogjakarta since year 2013, opened its first outlet here in Malaysia on 31st August 2017.
Feeling curious about this bright lighted shop. Hence I decided to step into the store to check out what is their specialty.
The one page menu was simple and very straight forward. Looks like they only serve 1 dish. Their signature Ayam Gebuk. Ya…only this ayam.
You can choose the level of spiciness. On the menu shows the numbers of red cili padi used on each spicy level. Usually they will serve the pounded chili on top of the fried 1/4 chicken. But you can request to put aside.
Price start from RM8.90 for basic Set A which consist 1/4 chicken, raw cabbage, cucumber & white rice, while Set D comes with additional fried cabbage, gizzard, fried tofu and fried tempe (a traditional Indonesian soy product, that is made from fermented soybeans).
Before you begin to dig in, add on some kicap manis (sweet soy sauce) to enhance the flavors.

(Define Your Own Spiciness, You feel spicy, We’re Satisfied!)
Please do not underestimate the ‘Normal’ spicy level. Although I could take spicy food, I still felt the burning feeling in my mouth. Apart from the whole new level of spiciness, the chili and chicken tasted good too. Jet enjoyed eating the chicken with only white rice & kicap manis.
If you are dining in, feel free to add rice and sambal without extra charge.
What’s so special about the chili (sambal) here? I was told that the sambal is freshly made and was prepared in batches. Mixture of chili, garlic, chili oil are done on a stone mortar dish. On far left of photo, the light brown color is cashew nut sauce. Both chili and cashew nut sauce will be combined in the sambal.
Verdict : Chicken was tasty and succulent. The sambal was really nice and spicy! Only downside is that, no other food choice except ayam gebuk+rice.
So, are you ready for the spicy challenge? 😉 😉
