Chicken Royale: Malaysia's homegrown peri-peri chicken with cheese is destined for domination
October 7, 2022
Chicken Royale had humble beginnings, but it has increasingly become one of the Klang Valley's most beloved brands for peri peri chicken with plenty of cheese.
Starting from a simple food truck in Cheras in 2016, Chicken Royale now has seven branches across KL and Selangor, with more in the works.
The name Chicken Royale represents this homegrown brand's admirable aspirations: It wants to become a purveyor of poultry pleasure not only in Malaysia but throughout the world, serving up succulent meat coupled with creamy, stretchy cheese and crave-worthy sauces.
We recently visited Chicken Royale's cheerful outpost in Ampang, The brand also runs branches in Bangi, Cheras, Damansara, Gombak, Putrajaya and Shah Alam, with many more to come, serving up dine-in and delivery.
Behind the scenes in the kitchen, Chicken Royale's crew can be found constantly hard at work, whipping up the most tender chicken, roasted and batter-fried, with the tastiest rice, partnered with flavour-packed side dishes.
While you're dining at Chicken Royale, you'll also witness lots of action, including the torching and tossing of the cheese, meant to be melted all over your chicken, from the pan to the plate!
Here comes the cheese!
Single-portion servings are also available, of course. Nasi Teja (RM18.90, RM20.05 with SST) comprises fragrant rice with peri peri chicken and a yogurt salad with cucumber and carrots for a balanced, full-bodied meal.
Nasi Mayang (RM18.90, RM20.05 with SST) is Chicken Royale's famous bestseller for individual portions, featuring rice with crispy fried chicken and yoghurt salad.
Complete your Chicken Royale experience with Air Nojito (RM8.90 each, RM9.45 with SST) - iced sodas in fruity flavours of lychee, passion fruit, kiwi, lemon or tropicana, garnished with lemon and mint leaves for an extra-refreshing thirst-quencher.
