Ayam Lejen Festival details

Nothing beats a well, crispy fried chicken. Actually, hold that thought, what can beat it is being surrounded by a wide array of fried chicken. That’s what’s happening this November in Ara Damansara, Malaysia where the country’s first fried chicken festival will be held.

Organised by Friedchillies.com, the two-day event is called Ayam Lejen (gedit, gedit?), and is being held from 18 to 19 November at the Ara Damansara LRT station.

The event will feature what Friedchillies.com have judged as the best eight fried chickens in the Klang Valley. According to the food site, they’ve spent the last few months testing and trying a majority of the fried chicken joints in the Klang Valley and the eight that will be presented at the festival are the best of the best.

So who are the so-called best eight fried chicken in the Klang Valley (that we’ll be seeing in the festival) according to Friedchillies.com?
