Expensive but Worth a Taste May 15, 2011
They have several branches in Banda Aceh but our driver said the most delicious is the first restaurant and he brought us there.

Rumah Makan Khas Aceh Rayeuk are famous restaurants in Banda Aceh, when famous people come to Banda Aceh they taste Acehnese Traditional Cuisine here, our driver told. Their specialty is Ayam Tangkap (also called Ayam Sampah) and that exactly what we want to taste.

Ayam Tangkap or Ayam Sampah

Direct translation in English will be 'Caught Chicken' or 'Garbage Chicken'. Whole 'kampung' chicken chopped to small chop (24 to 30 chops). Seasonated with garlic, onion, cayenne, turmeric, ginger, salt and tamarind water. Then deep fried with Koja Bay leafs, Pandan leafs and green chili. When it served, it looks like pile of garbage leafs with chopped chicken.

It was so delicious, I like the chicken, but I like their crispy leafs more. I never eat dish with deep fried leafs before and it real good experience, real yummy!

A portion of Ayam Tangkap (IDR 60.000) is for 3 to 4 persons.
just spot this sign or the wall pa…
SIDE DISHES which not cheap
no price on their menu, I suggest …

Acehnese Famous Traditional Cuisine Jul 18, 2009
It was my first time to taste the famous "Ayam Tangkap" (caught chicken, hehehe, weird translation...oh well, something like that). And it was true what people said and why it was so famous, it's YUMMY!!

The restaurant was ok, nothing special when you see from the outside. Located in a big street in Banda Aceh and you can actually find some of these restaurants in Banda Aceh.

The special food itself, Ayam Tangkap, just like the chicken being caught, chopped and fried with lots of bay leaves and spices. And it is too good to miss!

The cost of this food they serve is pretty expensive for a local and not so fancy restaurant, but what isn't expensive in Aceh? :)

Worth to try!
