BBQ Chicken @ Jaya One, Petaling Jaya



“Its not barbeque. It’s best of the best quality”


With more than 30 restaurants to choose from, Jaya One offers a great hang out place for PJ people. It has become our little playground ever since, since parking is not an issue and comes free with every RM 30 spent at any restaurant. Most of the restaurants are located around the Palm Square zone and Wai Sik Kai zone.

Few weeks back, we found ourselves back to Jaya One again. We wanted to go for dim sum at Duck King but the long queue has put us off so we ended up at Korean BBQ eventually. BBQ Chicken is the No. 1 franchise brand in Korea with outlets around China, Spain, Japan, USA, Vietnam, Australia, Mongolia, Malaysia and Singapore. Self acclaiming as the no.1 chicken restaurant in Korea, they took discernible pride in their chicken dishes (obviously) and one of the main selling points would be frying the chicken in extra virgin oil.

We went for the super good value “lunch special”, which is valid daily from 11am to 2pm. One can choose from burgers & breads, olive, barbeque, beef & fish that comes with free soup, drinks and a single scoop ice cream.




Coffee of the Day & Soft Drink



Forgettable Mushroom Soup


My order of charbroiled chicken is moist, tender and delicious and the amazingly sweet and spicy marinade permeated through every bite.



The spicy fried chickens from the olive series are really good too. Coated with layers of sticky spicy sauce, the skin had a very good crunch and great spicy flavor. Despite being truly finger-licking good, this is a multi-napkin chicken. 




Prices here are definitely higher than the Kentucky Fried Chicken where the total bill came about RM 30. However, I wouldn’t mind paying more for the super crunchy fried chicken that is oh so healthy and the attentive services.

  • eiling says:

    Urm pardon me and correct me if I’m wrong. Apparently the fried chicken with olive oil is not that healthy. People got the wrong perception of olive oil. yes it is healthy – only when it is not exposed to high heat. Olive oil cannot be used for cooking over high heat what more frying. The act of heating the oil will change its structure and thus making it more hazardous to consume than consuming normal fried chicken. That’s why olive oil are always bottled in green bottles to avoid direct contact with sunlight.

    Duck Kin is good but pricey

  • Pureglutton says:

    Looks like a very yummy alternative to KFC certainly! Must try!

  • waisikmiao says:

    hmmm… they used to have prawn fried rice in the menu, but now no more… a little dissapointed. but ya, the chicken is still as good, agree w u dont mind paying more ^^

  • jason says:

    Was kinda skeptical to try this but now, I guess we got a new place to go to whenever we drop by Jaya One other than Duck King and Wendy’s :)

  • Jian says:

    ooo but RM30 oh…I can have almost 4 snack plates…Nevertheless, I am salivating although I’d just have my dinner!

    Eiling is rite. Olive oil must not be heated until smoking else it will turn carcinogenic. Unless they somehow fry the chicken at low heat at a longer time span. Oh…probably that makes is super crispy 😉

  • rokh says:

    seem like a place to consider if we ever decide over kfc 😉

  • fatboybakes says:

    ooh, the chicken looks good huh! but aiyo, that mushroom soup, even from the pic, can tell oridi, looks very watery!

  • wan says:

    hai everybody… refer to the olive oil yes it not good when it goes heating but for bbq chicken , they have a technology to turn the olive oil for frying… they got a chicken university like hamburger university at korea. the olive oilthey use one is not the olive oil in the market that we put a bit in the cooking… i lepaque almost everyday there… better chciken with healthy oil… bbq chicken jaya one
