Ayam Goreng (Rp. 55,000/ whole chicken)
Even though I used to eat this when I was young, I never realized that one whole chicken is kind of small. Maybe because I am now used to the supersized chicken in US. The chicken used in Ny. Suharti is free-ranged; hence, the meat are more lean compared to other chicken. A word of warning, this chicken is very addicting, especially the fried bits (koya) which is so savory I am satisfied eating it mixed into my steamed white rice. The meat is also tender but it does not fall off its bones like say KFC since there was no pressure involved during the frying.

Another favorite is the carp fish which is battered with their signature batter and deep fried to golden brown perfection. The fish meat is tantalizing soft. I highly recommend it. Unfortunately, I forgot the price of the fish. I know for a fact that I would come back here sooner or later, and when I do, I will update this post.
The branch I visited is at least 25 years and not much major renovations has been done to uplift its image. The ambiance is certainly not a big draw given that they painted the walls moss green and wooden tables and chairs that has seen better days are used. Thankfully, I doubt that the roof ain’t going to cave in one of these days as I can see they did some upkeep to keep the place in running condition. Service is also pretty slow even when there was only 3 parties, including ours, at that time. Thankfully, they do take-out!
