Tag / ketupat

When one talks about satey, undoubtedly msot of you will think of Kajang. However, if you are like me, who thinks that Kajang is bit too far and you agree with the popular sentiment that Kajang satey has gotten abit overrated these days, there’s still hope. Right here at the heart of KL, you can find pretty awesome and very affordable satey.

Ampang Satey

I was originally introduced to this particular joint by the chow Ah Beng, Galvin Tan, a couple years ago. So when we were stuck at KL traffic on the way back from KLCC just the other day, I suggested that we settle for dinner there. We ordered some 20 Chicken sateys (from my past exprience the beef satey wasn’t very great) and a couple ketupats for the 3 of us.

Ampang Satey

The satey is very juicy and not overly done. The satey sauce (peanut based) is pretty much free flow, for the chili lovers, you can add sambal to the sauce, too. The ketupat, well, tastes like how ketupat should, soft and blunt, but goes well with the satey and sauce. With 3 drinks, the total came to be about RM 14 or so, less than RM 5 per person for light dinner. Pretty good deal, not to mention it’s rather tasty too.

Other than satey, the restaurant sells other cook to serve Malay food, such as various types of fried rice, nasi paprid, and so forth. However, satey is their main speciality and pretty much ordered by every customer. Give it a try, and save some money on toll and petrol by not having to go to Kajang.

Here’s how you get there, bla!
Map to Ampang Satey

The place is just opposite Menara Celcom. If you are using Lebuhraya Mahameru going towards Ampang direction, make sure you don’t go up to the elevated portion of the highway. Take the left turn instead.

note: it’s bulatan Pahang, instead of Kuantan. hehe
