Restoran Satay Malaysia (Nyuk Lan)

February 23rd, 2014 · 2 Surrendered

Ahem… It’s been awhile. This post was supposed to be posted last year, about 3-4 months ago but never get to post about it. Since I’m running out of things to blog, I have to dig this out. The price might have increased already. Was there way back in September 2013.

Restaurant Satay Malaysia also known as Nyuk Lan (31, Jalan Semenyih, 43000 Kajang, Selangor) is where you can find one of the best Kajang Satay in Kajang.


Left: Having satay, peanut sauce and ketupat (RM0.80 each) are must-have. The taste was good but a bit too fine, I prefer peanut sauce with some crunch in it.

Right: We ordered all 5 of the available meat namely chicken(RM0.80), duck(RM1.40), mutton(RM1.40), fish(RM1.40), and beef(RM0.90). First time I had duck and fish satay. The satay was big, more than double the size of what we get in Kuching, and meat was very tender. Sadly, you can’t find this big stick of satay in Kuching, it’s getting smaller and smaller and price has been increasing, pathetic. When I saw the satay we ordered in Restaurant Satay Malaysia, my first thought was it’s the biggest satay I’ve seen in my entire life! Where on earth can I find this big stick of satay in Kuching? Frankly, satay in Kuching mostly are quite dry and tough too even from those supposedly highly recommended satay stall/place in Kuching.

The price of Kajang Satay is higher than what we have in Kuching for sure but the quality is more important for me. If it’s good, I don’t mind paying more. However, based on the size, it’s still considered very reasonable.

Aside from satay, there’s a stall selling otak-otak. Lots of people buying it too. I don’t remember how much though. However, it’s not that expensive.

I think this is my second time eating otak-otak. Compare to the one I had before, this one was pretty decent.

I heard the place is always packed! Not easy to get a place to sit, you’ll have to wait for a bit.

Anywhere else in Kajang that you can recommend for good satay? Would love to try it out when I have the chance to go there again.

    Hi Irene, wow! I have always loved satay!
    I remember ‘Kajang satay’ from wayyyy back to the ’60s. A shop next to a big field, near a school…and thats where the original Kajang satay originated.
    Weekends it was packed!

    Then of course, many started coming out with their own and calling it ‘Kajang satay’…but the original, it was the gravy that gave the kick!
    I miss eating satay, though we have it in some Asian restaurants, nothing like satay from a burning charcoal stove.
    Have a nice day,
    Lee.

    Lee, I guess Malaysians sure do love their satays 😉 Indeed, nothing like a good satay from a burning charcoal stove while Asian restaurants in western countries just can’t make the cut.

Surrender Here!
