Satay Kajang Asli in Penang?!

Written by Lingzie

Topics: Malay Food

Yep, you read that right. Satay Kajang Asli. In Penang!!

Or at least that’s what the banner said…


It was enough to draw me in to give it a try. After all, you’re talking to a huge satay lover here!

So one fine evening, we decided to go for a light dinner.


We ordered both chicken and beef satay. And waited in anticipation, with I must admit, some doubt in our mind. Many have claimed to offer satay kajang asli, and many have failed to live up to our expectations. Would this one be different? we wondered…


Our verdict? Not really authentic satay kajang asli. The meat just wasn’t chunky enough. But it was not bad. The peanut sauce was good. The nasi impit fared well.


However, we found the beef satay rather tough. So next time, we’ll stick with the chicken version.

    Aiyo … talking about satay … that day if we kena the Hj Samuri one, you will know how satay Kajang suppose to look like … it is meat > chicken skins > meat …. always in that combination in 1 stick. Then the kuah come with sambal seperately.

    I believe there is one authentic Satay Kajang Haji Samuri in Penang. Located in Bayan Baru, at a corner house which you can see along Jln Sultan Azlan Shah. Opposite Komag factory. They only have a banner so not many ppl know of this place.

    the picture of the satay look promising but not as big as the real kajang satay..

  14. J2Kfm says:

    smaller pieces than usual. even the Haji Samuri outlets in Klang Valley also dropped in quality liao.

    hotel 1926 stil there? I stayed there once b4.

    I would say, Al Basri satay at Sg. Dua would give Satay Kajang a run for its money. Their satay really huge and they have exotic meat too besides chicken n beef! Horse, Deer, Ostrich, Rabbit.Chicken & Beef cost RM1, the rest RM1.50
    Here’s the contact: 019 4100080. You might be surprise the owner is a Chinese.

  16. Foodees says:

    I stayed in Sg Ara, Bayan Lepas last 2 years. They have also have Kajang Satay there too. But I am not sure whether they still have it there or not. Its opposite of Western Digital (formerly known as Komag) =)

    Laukl & foodees – hmmm you both mentioned the same outlet! must go see if its still there. i do remember that there was a hj samuri outlet at mayang mall but it was only for a short while.

    J2Kfm – oh i do agree with you. i tried that hj samuri branch along the rest area in KL (along kesas highway) it was…rather disappointing! 🙁

    ken – al basri satay you say? cool! must try d!! thanks for the tip!

  18. sakaigirl says:

    satay looks decent-they might have over grilled the beef.
