This was an accidental find. I initially intended to head to REXKL for dinner but I got tempted and distracted just as I was heading in. Right there, near the entrance into REXKL, by the road, there were a few stalls. Stalls that only open in the evening onwards. No wonder I’ve never notice them during my lunch trips here.
Anyways, as mentioned earlier, my friends and I were right there at the entrance of REXKL, about to head in to enjoy some tasty fried rice at Lauk Pauk when we got distracted. At that very moment, satays were put onto the grill to be cooked. First, it was the smoke, it slowly started taking over the area and soon enough, it engulfed us too. With it came the distinct aroma of satay… ooo man, as soon as it hit us, we were enticed. So yea, no Lauk Pauklah. Satay it was for dinner today.
Satay Sarah Ampang is apparently a known satay brand that has been around since 1981. This particular stall along Jalan Sultan has been in operation since 1991. It was pioneered by a lady and the business is currently run by her son, which we were fortunate to meet as he was the one who served us our satays. They cater for both dining in as well as takeaways with options such as Satay Daging, Satay Ayam, Satay Kambing and etc.
I forgot to snap a photo of their Menu 😅😅, sorry. Will do so during my next visit. Good food and good company tends to do that, it often leads me to forget time and things I need to do.
As I was in the mood to ‘hantam’, I ordered 10 sticks of chicken satay, all for me, myself and I.
10 sticks of Chicken Satay, RM 10
The satays were very good. I think I may have found my satay ‘lepak’ spot, so conveniently located too. Just about 10 to 15 minutes away from where I live in PJ. You’d get lots of lean meat here, a good portion size. None of those small, downsized versions that I regularly come across nowadays. Nope, the ones here are worth the RM1 per stick that I was paying. Each bit of those satays were generous. The meat was tender and juicy, coated with yummy sticky sweet sauce that was slightly different from the rest. Maybe they added some turmeric into the mix or perhaps I was dreaming? My friends were adamant there was no turmeric, I however tasted it. That aside though, it was mutually agreed that the satay was delicious and we’d be back again for another visit, for sure. The peanut sauce was finger licking good. Thick, slightly sweet and packed with bits of peanuts. I was content to eat the satay on its own because it really was good but adding on the peanut sauce though, da’ bomb it was. Burp!
