We have only heard good things about Nomms. We think that it will be a great addition to Penang’s list of fried chicken! Their menu is like no other fast food restaurant. They have really extraordinary side dishes to go with the fried chicken. Some choices include chicken fragrant rice with curry or rendang, and also pasta made with Asian spices. If you are not into fried chicken, they also serve grilled chicken and tempura fried fish. Nomms sounds unusual in a very good way, and we want them here!
