We went to D’Penyetz for lunch and when we arrived at the restaurant, what greeted us was a small space viewed from the outside. Do not be fooled though. Even though it may look small, it could still house quite a number of customers. They designed the restaurant in such a way that they were able to fully-utilise the seating area to accommodate more customers.

The main colour for the restaurant is yellow, and the design of the restaurant somehow made me feel like I was in a restaurant in Indonesia. Their cashier counter was designed to look like a kiosk, like those street vendors I saw when I was in Indonesia. When ordering at cashier area, the staff will ask you to choose what type of chilli you would like for your meal. I felt cosy for some reason as I sat down.
What sets D’Penyetz apart from their competitors is their choice of 8 different levels of chilli. The 8 different levels not only differ in spiciness, they also differ in taste and appearance. The power of the chilli sauces cannot be underestimated. They taste harmless at first, but the spiciness kicks in after 5 seconds. According to the boss, the chilli sauce ingredients as well as the spices for their dishes are all imported directly from Indonesia to ensure the authenticity of their food.
Here are what we had:
- D’Penyetz Smashed Chicken
- Signature Fried Tofu & Egg In Satay Sauce
- Madura & Taliwang Fried Duck – Grilled Tilapia Fish
- Taliwang Fried Duck
- Indonesian Oxtail Soup
- Indonesian Avocado Juice
The D’Penyetz Smashed Chicken, which goes for $9.20 was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. It was very flavourful. The Signature Fried Tofu & Egg In Satay Sauce, which is $9.10, is really good. I have never eaten anything like that before. It is tofu covered in egg and deep-fried to perfection. Drizzled with the satay sauce, the taste of the dish gets elevated to another level.
I would also like to highlight the Indonesian Avocado Juice ($6.90), which is a must-try for all who go there. The brown thing in the glass is actually chocolate sauce and mixing it with the avocado juice is heavenly. Very Indonesian indeed!
