Whenever you see or hear the word ‘Satay’, where does your mind transport you to?

My wild guess is Kajang. Yes, it’s true that Kajang is home to extremely delicious satay but you’ll be surprised to find other equally good ones (or maybe even better!) spread throughout different areas in Kuala Lumpur.

I gotta admit I wasn’t a big satay fan but the ones that I’ve tried somehow managed to entice me, converting me into a faithful satay lover.

So far, all the ones I’ve tasted matched my satay expectations. #fussyeaterproblems

  • They’re chunky with more meat than fat – CHECK
  • Slightly charred, crispy and caramelised on the outside – CHECK
  • Absolutely smooth and tender on the inside – CHECK
  • So tasty that it doesn’t need to be dipped in peanut sauce – CHECK
  • Doesn’t get stuck on the satay stick, making it easier to bite – BONUS CHECK!!

Oh man, I think just drooled a little. Oops.

If you’re keen to satisfy your satay cravings or just in need of ideas on where to bring a friend who’s visiting our shores, you know what to do. Check out this list of places that serve some of the best satay ever! You’re welcome.
