ROWS of chicken being grilled on a customised three-tiered rotisserie at a stall just off the road will definitely catch the eye of motorists travelling along Jalan Kuala Selangor in Sungai Buloh, Selangor.
And if they choose to stop and have a bite here, there is no need to wait too long as the chicken is ready to be consumed as it is cooked and kept warm on the rotisserie spit.
This makes it easy for customers to enjoy a juicy serving of chicken anytime between lunch hour and midnight.
Warung Ayam Golek Ganu Kite owner Mahani Mohd, who manages the stall with her husband Mukhlis Hanafiah, has been in the business for 12 years.
It started out as an ayam golek stall but Mahani was later persuaded by customers to expand her menu for variety.
The main attraction here is the black pepper ayam golek — chicken marinated in black pepper and a myriad of other spices.
Most customers savour this treat with rice. Mahani said some 150 birds are sold on weekdays and more than 200 birds are bought up on weekends.
Half a chicken with two servings of rice (you can choose to have white rice or chicken flavoured rice) is priced at RM13.
A whole chicken costs RM19 and each additional serving of rice is RM1.50.
The stall is a great place to enjoy ayam golek to your heart’s content.
The combo set for one person, comprising nasi ayam and ayam golek, is priced at RM5.
Of course, rice is optional should you prefer to have the chicken on its own.
The stall usually gets crowded on weekends and there is a long queue of people waiting for their share of ayam golek.
Although the stall opens daily from 11.30am to 1.30am, it closes for festive seasons such as Hari Raya Aildilfitri and Aidiladha.
Mukhlis, who is in charge of the grilling process, said it took around 50 to 60 minutes to cook a whole chicken properly.
The chicken is marinated for four hours before being cooked.
The stall also has a barbecue service where marinated chicken and equipment are provided for customers to grill the bird themselves.
“We planned to open a new branch but postponed the idea due to lack of manpower, ” said Mukhlis.
There are 12 people working at the stall, including the husband-and-wife team.
Aside from ayam golek, a variety of dishes such as tom yam, soup and fried noodles are sold here.
Warung Ayam Golek Ganu Kite is located at Jalan 3/1, Bandar Baru Sungai Buloh in Sungai Buloh, Selangor.
