Nasi Ayam Garing @ Batu 8, Jalan Gombak

Price Range : Budget 
Cuisine : Malay 
Recommended For : A cheap pit-stop on the way back from Genting
Catphobia-Friendly?Nooooooooo! *cowers in fear*

Yep, going to Genting may be fun. From roller coaster rides, to snowball fights, to breathtaking theatrics, it seems like the fun never ends in this city in the sky. But one thing that really gets on our nerves about this place is how overpriced the food can be! As a consolation to all the cash that will inevitably be spent here, we highly recommend having a budget yet yummy dinner on the way back! 

As the name suggests, the chicken rice here is characterised by its crispy chicken. Upon ordering a plate of Nasi Ayam Garing (RM4.50) each, they proceed to deep fry the cut up pieces of roasted chicken, to get its signature crisp. Drizzled with kicap, this is one delectable accompaniment to the rice! 

The soup is a surprise favourite! It is flavoured with just the right balance of spices, and its slight spicy hint from the cut-up cili padi adds such an interesting dimension to the heartwarming soup. 

The appeal of this dish is in its ability to reinvent this traditional dish, but still retaining its much-loved simplicity. Do make it a point to drop by this place when you're in this area next. =)
