Satay has become a way of life here in Malaysia. Whoever
thought of the idea to put pieces of meat on a wooden skewer is a genius. Then
the creation of spicy and savoury, usually peanut, sauces is like the icing on
top of a cake and seals the whole deal together. A dish that is uniquely
available on in Southeast Asia, it has slowly spread to other parts of the
world so that more people could enjoy such a dish.
Satay Sri Melaka is one of the many satay joints around
Klang Valley. Although has yet to enjoy the popularity of Satay Kajang Hj.
Samuri, the people who were fortunate to come across this establishment has
only good words to say.
Satay Sri Melaka is currently only a joint in the food
court Medan Selera AU5 in KL. Therefore, they decided to focus on the varieties
that are most popular and would sell the most. Only chicken, beef, liver and
intestines satays are available here. But they made up for it by offering other
dishes like the crowd favourite, Bakso, a dish that originated from Indonesia, and other Noodle Soups.
stall is almost always full of people, so it is best to be here nice and
early. Because of the crowd, having a table can prove to be quite a feat as
well. Although opened until quite late, beware that it is common for them to
run out of satay later in the night. Price-wise, it has gone up slightly over the
years because KL’s restaurant scene can be competitive, but it is still a
taste worth trying.
