How many ways can you grill satay and still call it satay? What if it does not come with peanut sauce? And it's from Penang? Well... hold on to your forks, Batu Maung Satay is up for a review and you can get it in PJ. We're here at the South Pacific Seafood Restaurant to taste the famous Batu Maung Satay from Penang. This restaurant actually gets its supply of satays from Penang! Rumour has it that they serve approximately 15,000 sticks a week! This is the only restaurant in PJ serving this type of satay (that we know of) outside of Batu Maung, Penang.
So what's the deal with this type of satay? Now, the stall signboard says "Satay from Penang (without peanut sauce)". What made Satay Batu Maung famous is that this special skewered meat is marinated with a blend of satay sauce which does not have peanuts as one of its main ingredients. The whole satay marinate is then grilled the normal way over charcoal flame. Their satay is slightly sweet and has a stronger presence of dried chili than the normal ones. It's a little dry, but I think they over cooked it slightly. And it is served without the satay sauce as it is supposed to be 'built into' the satay.
Tastewise, the jury is still out on that one. Some say its ordinary, some say it is delicious. As for me, fourteen sticks of Batu Maung Satay safely passed through my tastebuds before realising how much I had. Ordinary huh? you decide...
