    Brunei Satay HousePork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Brunei Satay House is a rather traditional looking place that has much to offer. Well, not that much considering that the only reason one would pay this place a visit is for their satay but yes, their satay itself has much to offer. Marinated beautifully with a savoury sauce before being grilled to tender perfection, having merely a dozen sticks would definitely not be enough. Instead, go for double your usual portion! 

    Tips

    Cash only and family set available.

    Things to expect

    A fairly normal place.

    Kedai Kopi Yuit CheongNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    A historical place indeed, Kedai Kopi Yuit Cheong has been in operation ever since 1896, which makes them about 120+ years old. A restaurant that long ought to be good, if not great. And to answer that, yes. Their Satay Jawi has got people from all over town queuing up for over 20 minutes (on a good day). The satay is marinated overnight to ensure that the flavours develop deep within the meat itself before grilling. The result is sticks of delicious satay that is well packed with flavour from both the marination and charcoal used to barbecue them. 

    Tips

    Cash only.

    Things to expect

    A traditional looking coffee shop.
