We all hear that the best satay can be found in Kajang, but what are the spots that are worth checking out? Are there hidden gems to look out for? Here we find the 5 spots that are worthy of the journey.

Satay has put Kajang on the map, so much so that they have a museum with artefacts, information panels, audiovisual guides and dioramas tracing the history of satay in Kajang back to 1917. They even have a medan satay showcasing some of the yummiest satay around. We decided to do a little crawl around Kajang to suss out the best of the best.

Sate Kajang Haji Samuri

This famous chain has been around for years. It is said that Samuri’s wife is a descendent of Tasmin Sakiban from Java, Indonesia, who arrived in Kajang in 1914 and pioneered the satay business in 1917. This would explain why they have the largest establishment and are the most well known for their satay. Here you line up and place your order, they have chicken, beef, rabbit, venison, fish and more. Next you sit down and wait for your satay to make its way over to your table. Try the rabbit as it tends to be the most tender of the lot. The kuah kacang has a nice chunky texture and you can add in some sambal to spice it up. Our only gripe is that the sambal tends to be a bit on the oily side and the satay was cold which can only mean it was grilled earlier and reheated.

Location: Lot 1,2 & 3 Tingkat Bawah & Tingkat 1, Bangunan Dato’ Nazir, Jalan Kelab, Kajang.

If you want to feel as though you are enjoying satay in a small kampung town this quaint spot in medan satay is a great stop. The wooden benches and huts paired with the sentimental Malay and Indonesian songs will have you relaxing in no time. You can even hear the sounds of crickets as you tuck in to your meat. The satay here is made fresh and comes out piping hot. Try the fish satay that is soft and flakey or the chicken satay that is extremely moist and juicy. The kuah kacang has heft to it giving it a very delicious homemade feel. Kick back and let life slow down for a bit while you’re here.

Location: Medan Satay, Jalan Kelab, Kajang.

"Delicious charred meats"

Satay Malaya

Most of the customers here are Kajangians who know where the good stuff can be found. It is not the type of spot that many outsiders would know about as it is a bit hidden and away from the popular satay area. The satay here is served at 6pm daily and they close once they run out, sometimes as early as 8pm. Tender and delicious, it is no wonder that the Kajangians want to keep this spot a secret! Here they serve beef, chicken, and perut satay. They also sell the famous nasi lemak kajang which almost always runs out within one hour of opening. Take the journey out and give it a try!

Location: Opposite Kajang Specialist Hospital next to Restoran Mee Bandung Muar.

Satay Malaysia (Nyuk Lan Kajang Satay)

image

This Chinese coffee shop is another popular spot to get your satay fix. The meat here is cooked fresh to order and is always tender and flavourful. The satay sticks are skewered with lovely pieces of meat instead of skin like some places do it. Here they also serve ketupat in the coconut leaf casing, this is something you don’t find so easily and it’s always a treat. The kuah kacang here is smooth as if it’s been blended down to a paste and the sambal has a fiery zing that is sure to please. Come for the mutton satay.

Location: 31 Jalan Semenyih, Kajang

The beef satay is melt-in-your mouth and the chicken is scrumptious. They still serve ketupat rather than nasi empit and the kuah kacang’s great too. They have at least 4 'tepak' masters grilling satays at night and they are always in full swing. Apparently once you come often enough you will know which one will make it to your preference. Ayin, daughter of the founder cheekily said, “satay sini sedap sampai terangkat… macam willy…” Oookay then...

Location: Medan Selera, Ramal Junction, Kajang




There is defiantly something special about a good satay! And sadly its not just all about throwing a meat stick on the fire.....if it were that easy then we would not have our favorite places, But for sure the places done in the traditional way on the streets have always had more flavour and flair
