ask me

A couple days ago, I wanted to eat Indonesian food very badly after a long absence of eating it, due to the limitation of my cooking skill. I was craving for something really spicy and tasty, the kind of taste that makes your mouth water just by imagining it. So, I asked Tamara (my first Indonesian friend in Sydney who's now already like a sister to me) to take me to Ayam Goreng 99, a famous Indonesian restaurant in Kingsford-Sydney. As Tamara lives at Maroubra (very close to Kingsford), she has been there plenty of times. While for me, even though I've heard about it a lot from my Indonesian friends, and even recommended this restaurant to some of my Asian friends, it was my first time since it was quite far from Macquarie Park, the suburb where I stay. 

Welcome to Ayam Goreng 99. If you feel like trying out the authentic grilled (Bakar)/fried (Goreng) chicken from Indonesia, this is the place to go. Original, spicy homemade Terasi (chilli sauce) and having them with the coconut rice is very recommended. Surprisingly, their prices are very reasonable. It cost me only $6.30 for that huge portion of rice and fried kalasan chicken breast
Place isn’t fancy at all - small and always packed. People do queue for long because it’s worth it. So if you want to avoid the crowd, come early! 

Go try and enjoy :),
