Indonesia - Best Fried Chicken in East Java at Ayam Goreng Ny. Suharti in Surabaya

klyeoh | Aug 21, 2011 08:37 AM

Ayam Goreng Ny. Suharti which started off in Jogjakarta must be the most successful Jogja-style fried chicken chain in Indonesia. Named after the owner, who happened to be the grand-daughter of Mbok Berek (often credited with popularising the batter-fried chicken which can put the Colonel to shame), Ny. Suharti's fried chicken retained a moistness which its rivals like Ayam Goreng Jogja struggled to emulate.

Our dinner this evening:

- Sayur asem, which is my favorite soup in all of Indonesia: a clear, light, slightly spicy sourish-sweet vegetable soup with marrow, peanuts & an array of local herbs;
- Stir-fried pete (green stink-beans): Ny. Suharti's version was stir-fried with pounded chillis & a bit of dried shrimp, and was very good indeed!

- Whole fried chicken, perfectly done as usual - with the light-as-air crisp, golden tapioca flour batter encasing a small juicy free-range spring chicken - the best you'd ever find in East Java;

- Nasi gudeg, which is steamed white rice with sides of curried buffalo-hide, sweet soysauce-stewed egg, and shredded, sweet soysauce-stewed beef. This was absolutely delicious, although the egg & shredded beef may taste a bit too sweet for non-Javanese;

- Gado-gado, a shredded vegetable salad topped with a rich, peanut sauce.
