Satay Kajang Asli in Penang?!

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.


  1. hahahahaha I have this thingy, satay must serve warm after grilling, taste even better. The last satay kajang original was a nightmare as the served cold satay, verdict, meat was rather hard and tough! 🙂

  2. 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.

  3. 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!
